A new general manager has been appointed at the four-star hotel, The Oxford Belfry, ahead of its rebrand to join the DoubleTree by Hilton portfolio.
Robin Ford will oversee operations at the property, which is currently part of the QHotels portfolio, but will soon rebrand to be managed by RBH.
Ford, who boasts more than 18 years’ experience in the sector, will lead the 150-strong team at the 154-bedroom hotel through the transition.
He has worked in Australia and Ireland with brands such as Crowne Plaza and Macdonald Hotels.
Robin Ford, general manager of The Oxford Belfry, said: “I’m pleased to have the opportunity to come on board as general manager at such an exciting time, as the hotel prepares to rebrand and join the DoubleTree by Hilton portfolio.
“My focus will be on ensuring the team continues to offer our guests the first class service they have come to expect.”
The Oxford Belfry comprises 154 bedrooms, a health club, spa, restaurant, bar and lounge, plus 17 conference and meeting rooms.
