A new general manager has joined the team at The Bedford Swan Hotel.
Malcolm Wyse, who boasts more than 18 years’ experience, comes to the 113-bedroom, 18th century spa hotel from his position at Agellus Hotels Tuddenham Mill in Suffolk.
Wyse will now lead the 120-strong team at the hotel which overlooks the Great Ouse River in Bedford town centre.
Prior to his role at Tuddenham Mill, Wyse worked for a number of boutique hotels including Reads Hotel and Spa in Mallorca.
During his time here, the hotel became a Relais & Châteaux member, while its restaurant earned a Michelin Star.
Wyse said: “I’m delighted to join the team at this wonderful hotel, which has so much character and charm.
“My focus will be on ensuring our guests enjoy the best possible experience whether they’re popping in for a coffee, staying with us, enjoying a spa day or attending an event – as well as creating a first class working environment for my team.”
