Welcome to Bev Blundon, who has joined the Wivenhoe House team as Head of Housekeeping.
Bev is managing the busy team of housekeepers and Edge Hotel School students who are responsible for keeping all areas of the hotel sparkling 24/7.
“I am really enjoying it here,” said Bev. “Everyone has been very welcoming and I can see it is like a little family here.
“I can’t make my mind up yet which is my favourite bedroom. I love the garden wing rooms with their balconies but I also like the variety of bedrooms in the main house.”
“I am very fussy about cleaning. When you have worked hard to ensure the presentation of a room is perfect, it is a great achievement to see it finished and ready to welcome the next guests.
“I am trained as an NVQ Assessor so this role really appealed to me as I will be working with the Edge Hotel School students as part of their hospitality management degrees.”
And a top home housekeeping tip from Bev? “Dry and buff a shower cubicle after cleaning it, it will stop bacteria developing.”
