Rutland Hall Hotel and Spa has welcomed Alex-Aurel Kurani to the team as its newest restaurant and bar manager.
He brings with him a wealth of hospitality experience to the hotel, having started in the industry at a young age.
He worked his way up through the restaurant to eventually become manager, before moving on to work in a multitude of privately-owned restaurants, including brands as Interstate Hotels and Resorts, Jupiter Hotels, Mercure Hotels and Compass Hospitality Hotels.
Kurani said: “The best thing about going into a brand-new restaurant is that there are no changes to be made as it serves as a fresh start for everyone.
“The high standards that we have put in place need to represent the beautiful history of the hotel and the Patel family, and I look forward to doing just that.”
John Higham, director and general manager at Rutland Hall Hotel and Spa, added: “We are delighted to announce Alex as our new restaurant and bar manager. We feel very fortunate to welcome him to the team whilst this exciting period of change for our hotel and restaurant is underway.
“Furthermore, we are excited to see how his fresh perspective and wealth of experience will reinvigorate the hotel’s restaurant and bar offering, and ultimately believe his insights will assist in taking Rutland Hall to the next level.”
