It is a privilege to attend the Service Award lunches and to sit alongside fellow team members that make English Lakes what it is today. There are many many years experience in the tourism and hospitality industry represented at these events, not to mention the skill, loyalty, dedication, and good humour.
The Service Awards lunches are something that I am very proud to attend and have only missed one out of the twenty-two I have been invited to. For myself, and for the team, it simply highlights each individual’s commitment to their role and to the business. The recognition is something that shows the company’s appreciation of the team member’s hard work over the previous 12 months. Andy Lemm
Service Awards lunches are a great way to hear about what else is going on around the company, catching up with colleagues from other hotels and enjoying a beautiful meal together. Dan Fox
Our +1 awards are given for service that goes above and beyond expectations. A silver +1 award marks the achievement of 10 +1 Awards.
The Awards Lunch is a great way to recognise staff achievement and their contribution to the +1 way of working. It’s also an ideal opportunity to meet with the Directors and staff from other hotels. (Plus, the food is always amazing!!) Karla Valenta

Awards Lunches are a great way to reward the staff and make each one feel appreciated. The awards lunches also enable staff members to experience the other hotels and meet colleagues within the company. Nevil Jeffery
It is great to get together and see colleagues and to be rewarded with a celebration for service. The voucher scheme also allows staff to treat themselves throughout the year which is an extra reward in itself. Gemma Jeffery
The lunches are a great ‘thank you’ from the directors and are motivating. Its lovely to be thanked and rewarded in this way. Debbie Oliver
We are always keen to hear from people who would like to join our teams across the family of hotels. With the new Low Wood Bay Resort & Spa comes new opportunities, and we are looking to recruit fun, friendly and inspiring individuals to join a team who love what we do.
