New men at the top at Douglas hotels

Two of the Isle of Man's hotel groups have announced key appointments.

Adrian Brockhouse is the new group director of hotels and leisure at the Sefton Group, responsible for the Sefton, the Palace Hotel and Casino and the Sefton Express.

He will also head up the group's gaming and leisure facilities, including Colours nightclub and the Palace Cinema.

Mr Brockhouse was previously managing director at the Palace Hotel.

Meanwhile, the Claremont Hotel has appointed Ian Stephenson as its new general manager.

He has had 25 years experience in the hotel industry and was previously at the Royal Victoria Hotel in Llanberis, Wales.

Mr Stephenson, who had never set foot in the Isle of Man before his job interview, says he has been a long-time fan of Island life, having spent time in Guernsey and the Isle of Wight.
