Bespoke Hotels has announced the appointment of a new general manager to the White Horse Hotel in Dorking.
Beccy Gunn joins the hotel amidst the property’s substantial refurbishment, as the business gears up for its relaunch in November.
Following its temporary closure on 17 July, the historic hotel is redesigning its dining and events space, as well as introducing 16 new bedrooms to bring the total to 57.
Gunn joins The White Horse from her position as GM at Wimbledon’s Hotel du Vin, having worked extensively across the South East prior to this, overseeing a number of openings and relaunches during her ten-year career.
“I am hugely excited to be joining the team at The White Horse at such a crucial time”, commented Gunn. “I have been very impressed by both the vision behind the project and the passion from the management within Bespoke, not to mention the considerable potential of Dorking as a destination in itself. I am relishing the opportunity to re-establish the property within the local community.”
“We are delighted to have secured Beccy’s services as we look to build the foundations of a successful and longstanding team at The White Horse”, added Graham Marskell, managing director of Bespoke Hotels. “We are confident that her passion and proven track record, when allied to our investment and vision for the property, will prove a winning combination for both Dorking and Surrey.”
