Suzanne is no stranger to the Elite Hotel family, having worked in the reservations team at one of Ashdown’s sister hotels, The Grand in Eastbourne, prior to her appointment at Ashdown Park.
Suzanne began her career in hospitality at 18 years old when she completed a reception and front office diploma. Immediately after her graduation, she began working at the De Vere-owned Queens Hotel in Eastbourne and then went on to work at The Star Hotel in Alfriston before joining the team at The Grand Hotel almost 10 years ago.
Commenting on her appointment, Suzanne said: “I loved working at The Grand, and working for Elite is brilliant. I wasn’t looking for a new opportunity but when I was informed of the opening at Ashdown Park I jumped at the chance as it presented an exciting new challenge. I know the Elite brand well and each of the four hotels has a different charm and character, so each one requires a different way of operating. This is a new challenge with a new team and I am already enjoying every moment.”
General manager of Ashdown Park Hotel Ben Booker added: “We’re are very excited to welcome Suzanne as our new reservations manager at Ashdown Park, Suzanne knows the Elite brand and will bring that invaluable knowledge and experience to her role with us.”
