Hotel Owner / Manager

The Wembley Hotel - Blackpool

My husband and I leased a Hotel on the sea front in Blackpool. We hired no staff most of the year, and one part time staff during the summer holidays, it was 18 bedrooms with a full licensed bar. My duties included taking bookings, managing emails, handling advertising, building and maintaining the website, checking in guests and cleaning and preparing the rooms etc. as well as entertaining guests and their children and keeping everyone smiling and happy. We specialised in being the most family friendly hotel in Blackpool, we organised very successful parties and themed weekends, I made quizzes and games and I very much enjoyed this job. Reason for leaving was because the landlord planned to knock the building down so we were only given a 3 year lease.
