Here are some of the key responsibilities as Groups Coordinator:

  • A thorough knowledge and consistent delivery of the brand standards in the department

Our Story

Built on decades of hotelier know-how, we are part of the Fattal Hotels Group, which operates over 230 hotels across Europe and Israel. We look after over 50 hotels across the UK & Ireland and have plans for major expansion over the next few years’; there’s never been a more exciting time to join us!

Some of the perks you could enjoy include:

  • Company-wide recognition scheme: for being your fabulous self, you could earn vouchers to spend on a wide range of high street shops
  • Free hot lunches in the employee canteen
  • Talent referral scheme: earn yourself a bonus for recommending a friend to join us
  • We love to get together and celebrate: we regularly host Thank You Week (your hotel could have anything from ice cream trucks to pizza parties) and every year we get dressed up in our fanciest threads to host our Employee Awards Celebration
  • The important stuff: access to the Company Pension Scheme, Life Assurance and Wellbeing Support
  • Ongoing job-related training programmes with clear paths for progression


We know the value of a relaxing retreat during a busy, or blissfully quiet, stay, welcoming rooms and dedicated staff ensure you’ll have a carefree time in our company, while highly desirable locations offer a unique experience of your chosen city. Take one step outside our doors and you’ll be immersed in the metropolitan wonders of central  London, breathing in the maritime air of Southampton, or investigating the historic streets of Edinburgh.
