Our Teams

Everyone joining our home-grown teams can expect to be valued, nurtured and celebrated. Our teams are built around dedicated, enthusiastic, curious, forward-thinking, open-minded individuals and above all are fun to be a part of!

Whether you are looking to launch your career or take on a fresh challenge, we’ll have an opportunity for you.

Front of House

Reception Team - First – and last – impressions count and our Front of House Reception teams are often the first people our guests meet. The teams set the tone for our guests’ stays, making a warm and memorable first impression for when they walk through our doors and ensuring that everything has gone above and beyond their expectations before they leave. We have teams who love to make guest smile everyday with high standards and great attention to detail.

Food & Beverage Team - We do things a little bit different; we love fun dining not fine dining. Hartnett Holder & Co is our award-winning restaurant, we are an Italian restaurant – we buy seasonal ingredients and cook them in an Italian way. Here at Hartnett Holder & Co we don’t get hung up on trying to be the best restaurant in the world, we just want to be everybody’s favourite. You would be joining a team where passion and drive are a big deal, come and learn what we do, how we do it and have fun in the process.

Events Team - We are lucky to work with an amazing selection of high-profile clients at Lime Wood Group, both leisure guests and brands. Although we get to plan lots of lovely events, working with such high-profile guests can be very demanding and time is very much of the essence. We have a lively and experienced team at Lime Wood, each person in the team brings a different skill set.

The team is led by internationally acclaimed Chef Director Angela Hartnett and Head Chef Luke Holder, who both bring with them a wealth of knowledge, passion and Italian flair to our open-house kitchen – we actively encourage our guests to meet the chefs and to be a part of the ‘behind the scenes’ action!

Our Garden and Grounds Team tend to and care for Lime Wood Group's 5* surroundings! Time is spent getting your hands dirty and being out an about in the grounds, set to the backdrop of the beautiful New Forest. We host many large-scale events, such as weddings or exclusive uses, that can stretch out of the hotel into the grounds and the Garden and Grounds teams are integral to creating the perfect setting, a ‘wow’ moment for the arrival of our guests.

Housekeeping & Maintenance

The Housekeeping and Maintenance teams take pride in keeping the hotel clean, comfortable and looking tip top! It is all about attention to detail and a real care for the environment that you work in, much of Lime Wood Group's 5* laid back luxury is created and maintained by these teams.

Our Maintenance teams are always on hand to make sure everything is in good working order! They know the inner workings of their hotel and together work on preventative and reactive maintenance tasks ensuring a safe environment for guests and our staff.

You will need to know and work with all teams across the hotel. Housekeeping & maintenance is not just about making beds and changing light bulbs, it is as much about creating an experience and ‘wow’ moment from the first time they walk up the drive.
