Meet The Team at Stratford upon Avon’s Newest Luxury Hotel
Ben Nevis, Jason Donovan & The Spice Girls – Meet The Front Of House Manager for Hotel du Vin’s Newest Luxury Hotel In Stratford upon Avon.
Laura Ginty is in charge of the warmest welcome in Stratford upon Avon when Hotel du Vin opens this spring on Rother Street – let’s get to know her. She joined the Hotel du Vin team in York while studying Language and Linguistics, at University of York.
In her own words:
“I worked part-time as a waitress in Hotel du Vin York whilst studying at University. I quickly developed a passion for customer service and have never looked back!”
This passion took Laura on to be an assistant front of house manager that won department of the year within their hotel. On top of awards, she has some impressive achievements.
In particular climbing Ben Nevis in eight hours without any training. So Stratford upon Avon’s sweeping Welcombe Hills should be no chal-lenge at all for Laura and her partner when she’s not welcoming guests to the hotel:
“I like to go on walks with my partner and explore new places.”
It’s not all scaling mountains and awards though, there have been some serious challenges during her hospitality career:
What’s the worst situation you’ve had to deal with working in luxury hotels?
“The worst thing was evacuating a 142 bedroom hotel with Christmas parties and a wedding ongoing as Night Manager. One of the guests was Jason Donovan though, so he was able to entertain everybody at the back of the car park whilst I investigated!”
When it comes to food Laura couldn’t have picked place to work. Her favourite dish is Chateaubriand, a staple of the menu at our French bistro. Her ideal dinner guest maybe a little less easily available, when asked, she chose – Beyoncé!. On the subject of food: whet your appetite and take a look at what you can expect from the hotel restaurant in our interview with Phil Hase, Head Chef at Hotel du Vin, Stratford upon Avon.
We can’t wait to share Laura’s passion for customer service when our new luxury hotel in Stratford upon Avon opens in May. You can book your spring getaway now.
