Piers Vowles takes on GM role at Amberley Castle

Piers Vowles has been appointed general manager of Amberley Castle, the four-red-AA-star, 19-bedroom property within the Andrew Brownsword Hotels group.

He will join the hotel in Amberley, West Sussex, on 6 July from his previous role at the Royal Crescent hotel in Bath, where he has been deputy general manager for over four years.

During his 12 years in the hospitality industry, Vowles has enjoyed roles at the Kilworth House hotel, Leeds; Macdonald Bath Spa hotel, Bath; and the De Vere Grand Harbour, Southampton.

He described Amberley Castle as "an iconic property" with a great team. "I'm looking forward to bringing my experience and my passion for food and beverage to the role, maintaining and building the hotel's strong reputation for offering outstanding service, luxurious accommodation, and delicious cuisine in the heart of West Sussex."

Earlier this month, Amberley Castle received an AA Notable Wine List award for the first time. It is an accolade that is already held by sister properties within Andrew Brownsword hotels, Gidleigh Park and the Bath Priory.

Owned by Christina and Andrew Brownsword, Andrew Brownsword Hotels comprises 12 city centre and country house hotels.
