Anthony Davies, Facilities Manager
I joined the hotel in May 2018 and took on the task of maintaining the hotel and its spa. I started my career as a maintenance engineer and have worked my way through the ranks to reach the position I hold today. I have over 22 years of experience in the hospitality industry, both in the UK and internationally. This has included maintaining some fantastic hotels ranging from 56 bedrooms, to hotels with over 500 bedrooms. Lucknam Park is probably the smallest I have managed in this position, but rivals all other hotels I have ever had the pleasure in looking after.
Why Lucknam Park
Lucknam Park is set in some magnificent grounds and unless you have been here you will never know. I guess it was the WOW factor for me!
What inspired you to work in hospitality
I started in the industry by mistake and have never stopped or even looked back on what I have been doing. The best part for me is that no two days are the same – every day I learn something new especially with the older buildings. We get to meet some great people, whether it is guests or colleagues, and it’s that that makes it all worthwhile.
When not at Lucknam Park Hotel, how do you spend your time
I like to spend my time away from Lucknam Park with my family and of course the dog – we like to get away to different parts of the UK that we haven’t yet been able to visit.
What can I say…I am a little partial to real ales and enjoy trying the local produce (which there is plenty of in this part of the country).
