Running a Luxury Hotel is not a walk in the park.
I have been, and continue to be, an avid fan of The Duchess of Duke Street and Upstairs,Downstairs and Pride & Prejudice and Country House Party and now, of course, Downton Abbey. Yes, I am a 'tragic'!
But I am also a realist, and so Fawlty Towers is Hospitality Training 101 for all staff.
I often say that running Woodbridge is a bit of a mix of all of the above, hopefully less of the later, although we do have our moments!
