Jurys Inn has appointed Damien Doyle (pictured) as cluster general manager – Brighton, as part of a management restructure. Doyle will oversee the company’s two Brighton hotels Jurys Inn Brighton Waterfront and Jurys Inn Brighton.
Doyle has managed Jurys Inn Brighton for the past 10 years and assumed GM responsibility for Jurys Inn Brighton Waterfront on a temporary basis earlier this year with previous GM Simon Quarrell leaving for a job in the Maldives.
Seamus McGowan, Jurys Inn deputy managing director, said: “I believe that under Damien’s remit the two hotels, working side by side, can support and develop business together. I have absolutely no doubt that Damien, in this newly created role, will ensure the continued success of both hotels and the further development of each hotel’s teams.”
Jurys Inn Brighton Waterfront has just completed a £5.6m renovation to transform its facilities. As part of the investment, the hotel’s nine meeting and events spaces and 221 bedrooms now have a new look.
Jurys Inn Brighton opposite Brighton station will be fully refurbished later this year, including a new look lobby and nine meeting rooms as part of a £1.85m investment.
Jurys Inn operates 42 hotels, 36 under the Jurys Inn brand and three under the DoubleTree by Hilton brand, two under the Garden Inn by Hilton Brand and one under Hilton. All are in city centre locations in the UK, Ireland and the Czech Republic.
Jurys Inn recently clinched thee ‘Accommodation Provider of the Year’ award at the UK Inbound Convention’s Awards for Excellence, beating off stiff competition from industry heavyweights Marriott and Macdonald Hotels.
Marc Webster, head of sales at Jurys Inn commented: “We are absolutely delighted to have won this industry recognised award as it highlights the positive journey Jurys Inn has taken over the past 18 months. It is testament to all the hard work and investment we have put into transforming our hotels. It is a real honour to be recognised by the organisation known for being the voice for inbound tourism in the UK.”
