The Pig in the Wall, the second hotel to join the litter, has announced a new hotel manager.
Taking up the role is Faye Stone, who has been a part of the team at the now five-strong boutique brand for the last six years starting as a receptionist at the original Pig in Brockenhurst 2012.
She quickly worked her way up through the ranks to house manager and more recently looking after The Pig in the Wall while manager Jamie Banner spent time at the group’s other property The Pig on the Beach in Studland.
Banner has also been appointed as deputy general manager at The Pig at Bridge Place in Canterbury near Kent, which is due to open in 2019 as part of The Pig’s £30m expansion.
Further Pig hotels are set to open in Padstow, Cornwall, in 2019, and near Arundel, West Sussex in 2020.
Speaking to Boutique Hotelier, Stone says: “I can only say how delighted I am to have come this far with Home Grown Hotels. Ever since I arrived at THE PIG in the New Forest back in 2012, I was instantly excited by what THE PIG had to offer. Over the years I have watched how the company has grown from strength to strength, and I feel genuinely proud to be a part of it.”
The Pig, part of Home Grown Hotels, is owned by Robin Hutson and backed by Jim Ratcliffe, who recently topped the Sunday Times Rich List 2018.
