De Savary's Cary Arms welcomes new GM

Devon's Cary Arms hotel, owned by Lana de Savary, has appointed a new general manager to take the boutique inn through its next stage of development.

Thomas Hughes will replace Felicia Crosby at the property, which has 10 suites, six beach huts, two beach suites and three restored fisherman's cottages in Babbacombe Bay. Crosby is leaving Cary Arms - rated five silver stars in the AA's inn category - after three years to travel.

Hughes previously managed the Wheatsheaf Inn in Northleach in the Cotswolds, where he was responsible for the smooth running and profitability of the business and was involved in new menu creation, recruitment and training programmes, marketing, social media campaigns, creating annual budgets and looking at new business propositions.

In October, the Cary Arms will launch a new spa with an indoor pool, additional treatment rooms and a mini gym and sun decks.

The appointment follows the de Savary family's recent sale of the 59-bedroom Old Swan and Minster Mil, which holds the same rating at Cary Arms, to Andrew Brownsword Hotels.
