Exclusive Hotels has appointed a new general manager for its Winchester property, Lainston House Hotel.

 

David Connell joins Lainston House after spending eight years at sister property Pennyhill Park Hotel & Spa, where he recently held the position of deputy general manager.

 

Connell, who will now be responsible for overseeing the day to day operation of the hotel, said: “After eight years working with Exclusive Hotels, I have reached a turning point in my career. Becoming General Manager of Lainston House is my highest achievement to date and I couldn't be happier. Working my way up the ranks has helped me to understand every sector within a hotel and that each role is important in ensuring a motivated staff and happy guests.”
