Rockliffe Hall has appointed experienced hotelier Jason Adams as its new managing director and he will oversee all aspects of the five-star hotel when he begins the role on Monday.
The managing director role is a new one. Eamonn Elliott, the hotel’s previous chief executive, left in August 2019. Its chairman, Warwick Brindle, has been overseeing the management of Rockliffe Hall in the interim.
The 61-bed Hurworth, County Durham resort will welcome Adams just over ten years after its initial opening.
He has 27 years’ experience in senior management, at hotels such as Foxhills Club and Resort, the Arden Hotel, the Atlantic Hotel in Jersey, and Seaham Hall, Durham.
Rockliffe Hall boasts two bars, three restaurants, meeting and events rooms, and a championship 18-hole golf course, as well as a spa and wellness centre refurbished last year.
Rockliffe Hall chairman Warwick Brindle said: “We are delighted to have Jason join the team at Rockliffe Hall. With his luxury resort experience in all aspects of the business we can look forward to further growth and expansion in the future, as the resort embarks on the next ten years of its exciting journey.”
Mr Adams added: “I am thrilled to become managing director at such a prestigious property. I hope to drive revenues and lead the team to win more accolades as we work together to take Rockliffe Hall to the next echelon of hotelkeeping.”
