Working in the hospitality business has more than its share of rewards but is well known for being stressful – the hours are long and it seems that, sometimes, some of us customers can be a demanding bunch! So, it’s good to see that when the time comes to switch off at least some of the team here at Mellington can be persuaded to work off the stress with a strenuous mountain bike ride. Our picture shows, left to right: Alex, Tom, Alistair, and Alwena. Tom is Chef and Alwena is on the front of house staff. Alex and Alistair are both members of the family that own the hotel but both put in the hours hands-on here, so have earned the break.
Mellington is set in the most spectacular countryside with miles of footpaths and bike trails right on the doorstep. Whatever your age, whatever your pace, if the outdoors is your thing, this is the place to be.
