Meet the team Monday with...

Melissa, Events Coordinator 

How long have you worked at Saunton?

I’ve worked for the Brend Hotels Group for 11 years starting at the Park Hotel and moved to Saunton 5 years ago.

What three words would you use to describe your job?

Challenging, varied, enjoyable.

What’s your favourite thing about working here?

The Saunton family and seeing all the guests enjoy their stay with us.

What’s your best memory/ proudest moment from your time here?

Moving to Saunton Sands and how I have progressed to my current role.

If you could switch jobs with someone else at the hotel for a day, who would it be and why?

Neil, our doorman, because I would like the interaction with the guests.

What’s your favourite thing about north Devon?

Beaches, ice creams and sunny days.

What one thing would you recommend every guest tries while they’re here?

Firstly, our new Source spa thermal suites – they are amazing! I would then say to explore our stunning walks and countryside.

What song would you sing at karaoke?

Nothing – I can’t sing, please don’t make me!

What makes you laugh?

A lot of things make me laugh – and sometimes I can’t stop – but I would have to say most of all Lee Evans and Impractical Jokers.
