Julie has been working at Alveston House Hotel since 1978. After completing a management buyout in 1998, the business has gone from strength to strength, with its restaurant Carriages having been awarded an AA rosette and the hotel being named Best Small Hotel of the Year in the Bristol Hospitality Awards 2010.
Julie runs the hotel with great success alongside a dedicated team, which allows time for her other great passion in life: carriage driving.
Lisa first joined Alveston House Hotel in July 1993 as a Trainee Manager straight from North Warwickshire College. A reliable member of the team, she quickly progressed to Assistant Manager.
Since 2007 Lisa has had the role of Deputy Manager, making her responsible for the day-to-day running of the Hotel. She also looks after weddings and functions, meeting with couples to help plan their special day.
Carole’s career at Alveston House started in 1998 as a General Assistant looking after conferences. Her ability to create a rapport with both leisure and business guests enabled her to quickly progress to Reception Manager.
Now Business Development Manager, Carole’s passion for Alveston House ensures that she is much more than her job title suggests; she is the driving force behind our success.
Gary joined Alveston House Hotel in 2012 following a decision to leave the world of banking and embark on a career in hospitality.
