The Langley, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Buckinghamshire has appointed David Harris as hotel manager.
Opening late 2018, The Langley is an exquisite 41-room boutique hotel and spa, owned and managed by City & Country Hotels, nestled within 500 acres of idyllic Buckinghamshire countryside.
Following a meticulous restoration, the former hunting lodge of the third Duke of Marlborough will create an outstanding destination complete with a world-class spa and collection of epicurean experiences, just a 40-minute drive from central London.
Bringing over 18 years’ experience within the hospitality industry to his role at The Langley, Harris has held several senior positions over his dynamic career.
Harris previously held the position of operations manager at the Ashford International Hotel, part of The Q Hotels Group.
During his time there, he devised and implemented a number of creative strategies that successfully transformed the business mix of the hotel, creating a winning formula that improved service, sales and guest satisfaction.
In his role at The Langley, Harris will lead a team of approximately 100 associates.
His immediate responsibilities include overseeing the completion of the build and restoration process, liaising with key parties including the contractors, designers and the owner to ensure a smooth handover.
Harris will manage the pre-launch budget, recruitment and ensure that all suppliers and licensing requirements are in place by the time of launch.
On his appointment, Harris said: “I am very excited to join the team at The Langley ahead of its anticipated launch.
“It’s an incredible heritage project to be involved in and it’s been fantastic to be on site to watch its transformation.
“The meticulous restoration and design process is testament to the scale and ambition we have for The Langley and we are committed to offering an exceptional experience with service second-to-none when we open our doors to guests later this year.”
He added: “The Langley will create an elegant destination for both locals and international guests alike, with something for everyone, from the world-class spa and Matt Roberts personal training facility, to its unsurpassable cigar collection and gourmet dining experiences.”
