Robert Wormall has been appointed general manager for the Talbot Hotel which re-opens in the spring.
Wormall’s background has always been in hotels, including The Devonshire Arms at Bolton Abbey and the popular Hoste Arms at Burnham Market.
“The Talbot Hotel is such a handsome building and I am excited about its potential,” he said. “As well as being the hub for local socialising, I believe it will be a huge asset to the town attracting visitors from further afield.
“Having had the opportunity to be involved in the development of the hotel from the beginning I am looking forward to the next stage when we open the doors to welcome our first guests.”
