The 21-room Bath hotel Homewood has announced that it will join the Mr & Mrs Smith Collection.
The hotel has also gained several new staff, including general manager Ed Fitzpatrick, formerly of Cotswolds hotel the Lygon Arms.
Other new additions include: Jamie Foreman, executive head chef; Rui de Carvalho, deputy general manager; Claudio Gheorghita, food and beverage manager; Lewis Collins, events manager; Ania Malecka, guest relations manager; and Barbara Anabella-Soria, head housekeeper.
Homewood is also part of the Kaleidoscope Collection. Kaleidoscope owner Ian Taylor commented: “We’re delighted to have someone of Ed’s calibre joining us here at Homewood this month.
“He’s got a fantastic background in five-star operations and we’re looking forward to him propelling Homewood to the next level.”
The hotel will also be expanding, adding 11 bedrooms in June, along with four glamping yurts and an outdoor terrace.
The hotel relaunched late last year with renovated bedrooms and a new spa. Read more below:
