Employee Appreciation Day

Celebrating our teams

Since today is #EmployeeAppreciationDay, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to highlight the amazing work of our teams. During recent years, working within the hospitality industry has been tougher than ever, but the resilience and dedication from each and every one of our team members has been remarkable. 

We of course try and celebrate our employees every day of the year, with each of our hotels organising their own methods of encouragement such as employee of the month, #SauntonStars and training opportunities. We are proud of our team and thank them all for their continued hard work.

Here at Brend Hotels, we are lucky to have one of the highest staff retention rates in the hotel industry and our greatest motivation is knowing that our employees feel a real passion for their work. With that in mind, we offer a range of benefits to each employee which is available on top of a competitive salary.

Restaurant Staff at The Royal Duchy Hotel

Our employee benefits include;

  • Discounted hotel stays. Probably the favourite perk of the bunch is receiving up to a 50% discount when you stay at one of our properties so that you can enjoy a little luxury for less. 
  • Discounts on food and drink. You will also receive 10% off food and drink at any Brend establishment.
  • Discounted spa treatments. Need a little pampering? You’ll get 10% off health & beauty treatments at any hotel within the Brend group offering these services including Saunton Sands Hotel and Carlyon Bay. 
  • Staff Accommodation. The West Country is a beautiful place to work. And if you need somewhere to stay while you’re working with us, we have affordable staff accommodation available in Barnstaple, Sidmouth & St Austell. Please get in touch for more information.
  • Employee Assistance Programme. All employees are enrolled on an employee assistance program with Hospitality Action which provides a free confidential counselling & information service on a wide range of personal and work-related topics.
  • Hospitality Rewards membership (NEW). Access to employee benefits platform which includes discounted gym memberships and cinema tickets, and money off selected restaurants and stores. Retailer discounts include H Samuel, Gymshark, Buy A Gift and Hunter. 

Why not use today as an excuse to get to know some of the employees behind our success, who have each played a huge part in the growth and development of the business. Read about some of the Brend Hotels Success Stories here
