He was instrumental in the success of Four Pillars Hotels through nine years rising to be the board director responsible for operations across all six properties with over 900 bedrooms.

Most recently he has been the general manager of the 414-bedroom Beaumont Estate following the purchase of Four Pillars, PH Hotels and De Vere Venues by Starwood Capital.

Wyboston Hotel on the estate is currently undergoing a £1m refurbishment of some of its bedrooms, which started in July and is due to be completed next week.

Further works are planned for January 2016, with all renovations planned as a part of a bid for the hotel to achieve four-star status.

Mark Jones, managing director says: “Wyboston Lakes is a family business with a 50-year history and a long-term view of the hospitality industry and the team that makes our success possible. Steve Jones joins us as operations director because he embodies all the values and principles that are at the core of our business and is hungry for further success and the opportunity to bring his ideas and wide experience to bear on our future.”
