Ashley Torr has been named general manager of Bishopstrow Hotel & Spa in Wiltshire, which relaunched in June this year.
He joined the property after Ian and Christa Taylor bought the then 32-bedroom, four-silver-AA-starred hotel off a guide price of £5.5m after it fell into administration.
Torr will be taking on greater responsibilities around operations and team leadership as part of his new role.
Commenting on the promotion, he said: "I'm so pleased to be continuing my growth at Bishopstrow as I advance to the next stage of my career in hospitality. Having the opportunity to lead the team at such a pivotal time for the hotel is an exciting challenge. I love the playful, eclectic style of Bishopstrow and I can't wait to bring my own creativity and passion to the role."
Jonathan Walker, director of Bishopstrow, said: "Ashley's promotion to general manager is well earnt and hugely deserved. He is both popular and highly respected in equal measures and has been at the centre of Bishopstrow's repositioning and standing as one of the UK's most important and revered country hotels."
