He said the job was a ‘dream come true’ and he will strive to use the ‘very best of what the area has to offer’ to create an unforgettable menu.

Russell Thompson, general manager, joins Ardeonaig from Solent Forts in Portsmouth, while Anita Molnár boasts experience in a variety of luxury hotels in Budapest and will bring a ‘international flair’ to the hotel.

All three new team members are relishing their new roles, whilst new owner Ian Hitchens is excited about the new chapter for the hotel.

Ardeonaig Hotel dates back to the 16th century, with some of the oldest parts of the main building welcoming travellers since that time.
