Luxury spa resort Hoar Cross Hall in Burton-upon-Trent has appointed a new spa director.
Phil Murphy has joined the property, set in 50 acres, from his role as group leisure and spa operations manager at QHotels and will now head up a team of 70 members of staff across both the leisure and spa departments at Hoar Cross Hall.
With 15 years of industry experience, Murphy’s hire is said to be a ‘welcome addition’ to the senior management team at the Grade-II listed hotel.
As well as his stint with QHotels, he also boasts experience with the likes of Macdonald Hotels.
His first goal at Hoar Cross Hall will be to drive the property to become the premier spa hotel destination in the UK.
Commenting on the appointment, Phil Murphy says: “I am delighted to be joining the Hoar Cross Hall team as leisure and spa director. The hotel, grounds and spa facilities are some of the best in the business and I am looking forward to developing the potential Hoar Cross Hall has to offer in the UK spa market.”
