Matt Dawson Stays at Sysonby

We were delighted that Matt Dawson chose to stay with us as he was in the area filming for his latest TV programme.  He even used the gardens here to do some of the filming, which provided entertainment for us and the other guests!

staff news

Welcome to Frances who has just completed her 1st week at the hotel as a duty manager.  Val will hopefully be back next week, she is recovering from a dislocated shoulder. We have just said bye to Debbie who unfortunately has had to leave due to her husband being ill, we all wish them well and hope that Debbie will be back when he recovers.

Holiday times are always difficult and we often get a bit short staffed especially when the bookings come in late. The late room bookings do seem to be a pattern at the moment. We are not alone with this, it is also being experienced by the other leicestershire hotels as I find when I go to the Leicestershire hotels sales and marketing meetings. A big thanks to the staff for covering holidays to ensure everything runs smoothly.
