Simon Tauber has been appointed general manager at Stanley House Hotel and Spa in Mellor, Lancashire, ahead of significant investment plans for the venue.
Tauber originally joined Stanley House in 2016 as restaurant and bar manager, later moving into an operations role. In 2018, he took on the general manager role at Hever hotel in Edenbridge, Kent, before rejoining the 30-bedroom property in January 2020 in a senior operations role.
Monte Hotels, owned by Euro Garages brothers Mohsin and Zuber Issa, acquired the hotel on 1 August this year. It was opened in 2004 by the late Fred Walker, co-founder of Walker Steel.
Tauber said: "My goal is to build on our reputation and take the hotel to the next level in terms of facilities and guest experience. The new owners are ambitious and passionate about the future. I feel we are the start of an exciting journey and look forward to sharing our plans."
Mohsin Issa added: "Simon's experience of the hotel and local region were important considerations when selecting him for the role. His vision and enthusiasm aligns with ours. I have no doubt Simon will fulfil a great leadership role and develop a fantastic local team."
