A hotel in the Yorkshire Dales which has gone from strength to strength since its launch in 2014 has now appointed its first general manager.
Beck Hall Hotel in Malham, which is owned and operated by husband and wife team Andrew and Louise Macbeth, have welcomed Leo Orjuela to the role of GM.
Orjuela will oversee all areas of the dog-friendly hotel and restaurant, located on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales.
He joins from his role as deputy general manager at Best Western Plus Cedar Court in Harrogate and was previously operations manager at Best Western Burn Hall, York.
Prior to this, he spent 12 years at Ramside Estates over three hotels, working his way up from duty manager at Hardwick Hall Hotel in Sedgefield to operations director at Bowburn Hall Hotel, he gained a wealth of experience managing all areas of hotel operations, and led the preopening team for Ramside Hall Hotel’s signature restaurant The Rib Room Steakhouse.
“With his track record, we’re confident Leo will help us take Beck Hall Hotel to the next level,” said owner Andrew Macbeth, who acquired the property with his wife Louise three years ago, renovating it, launching a restaurant and growing the team from six employees to more than 20.
“Louise and I will continue working behind the scenes to reach our vision of making Beck Hall the best dog-friendly destination in Yorkshire, whilst remaining true to our values of creating amazing guest experiences and a great place to work,” he added.
