New general manager and executive head chef for the Bristol Hotel

One of Bristol's leading hotels has announced a new general manager and executive head chef.

The 187-bedroom Bristol Hotel - a member of The Doyle Collection - has taken on Mark Payne (pictured here) as the property's new general manger and Kai Taylor as executive head chef.

Payne has previously worked as deputy general manager at the Clarion Hotel IFSC, Dublin, where he oversaw the hotel's refurbishment, and as general manager at the Jurys Inn, Aberdeen, which he opened. In 2006 he worked at the Bristol Hotel as rooms division manager.

Taylor joins the hotel, having previously been head chef at the Copthorne hotel in Berkshire, and the Chisildon House hotel and Parklands hotel (both in Wiltshire).

Chief executive of The Doyle Collection Pat King said he was pleased to announce the new appointments. "Mark and Kai bring a wealth of knowledge and experience that will help to develop and shape the growth of the hotel and they join us at a very exciting time in the group's development."

The Doyle Collection currently has 11 luxury hotels in six cities - Bristol, London, Dublin, Cork, Boston and Washington DC.
