“I started in February. Before that I was general manager at Holiday Inn Heathrow.

“I am particularly concentrating on the leisure centre. Having a background in fitness, as an ex-aerobics instructor, I have a great interest in leisure centres and gyms. I have increased membership and am looking at introducing more classes. I am also concentrating on food and beverages. We are introducing a new menu, the All Day Dining Menu, which will be freshly cooked, home away from home food, and in anticipation of all the sports events coming up in London, including Wimbledon and the Rugby World Cup, we are going to be turning the bar into a sports bar.”
