Jason Adams landed on his feet when he was appointed general manager at Lygon Arms, the newest hotel to come from the Iconic Luxury Hotels portfolio, aka the curators of the magnificent Chewton Glen and Cliveden House.
The 15th century Lygon Arms in Broadway, the Cotswolds has now unveiled the final chapter in its multi-million pound renovation since being taken on by London and Regional Properties, the owners of the ILH portfolio in early 2016, and Adams has been appointed as the man ready to drive forward this momentum. Speaking at the time the news broke, Andrew Stembridge, MD of the group, said he was certain that the ‘wealth and knowledge’ of Adams would help to restore Lygon Arms as one of ‘the finest historic coaching inns in the UK’.
Due to start his role on April 3, Adams takes over the running of the 86-bedroom hotel from his position as general manager at Foxhills Club and Resort in Surrey, where he had been for the last four years.
A manager with a wealth of experience, Adams boasts stints at some of the best boutiques across the UK, in management roles at the likes of Belmond Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons; Seaham Hall Hotel & Serenity Spa; The Atlantic Hotel, Jersey; and the Arden Hotel in Stratford upon Avon.
Upon joining Lygon Arms, Adams said that he was ‘thrilled’ to be taking over the exceptional hotel.
“It is such a remarkable property with great potential and now with the restoration completed, we can all look forward to the exciting opportunities this wonderful property presents,” he commented.
