Cresta Court Martin Wilson

Best Western Cresta Court Strengthens Management Team

The Best Western Cresta Court Hotel, part of Vine Hotels, has announced the appointment of Martin Wilson to the role of deputy general manager.

Martin brings ten years of hotel and catering experience to the Hotel, most recently with a two-year term as deputy general manager of Lancashire’s Bartle Hall hotel, and prior to that as food and beverage manager at the Best Western Glendower Hotel. His responsibilities will include managing the day to day running of the Hotel’s busy conference and banqueting operations, the Townfields restaurant and hotel bar. He will have a specific focus on food and beverage development.

Martin Wilson, deputy general manager said: “The Hotel has undergone a major refurbishment in the last couple of years, so this is a key time for me to join the team. With increased conference capacity and the restaurant now in a prime hotel location, we have the scope to really develop our food offering and bring something different to guests. It is an exciting opportunity for me.”

The role of deputy general manager was vacated last year by Scott McDonald, who moved up to the Hotel’s top job as general manager.

Scott McDonald, general manager, said: “Martin’s appointment is timely, as we are looking to develop the Hotel with a stronger food offering this year and his experience and creative thinking will be a huge asset. We are delighted that he has joined the team.”

Located in Altrincham, south Manchester, the Best Western Cresta Court Hotel has undergone recent upgrades, including a full bedroom, bar, reception and corridor refurbishment. The Hotel has also added the new Townfields restaurant, a beauty salon and business centre, and refurbished event spaces to include the creation of a new meeting room, The Allen Suite. The Hotel offers 200 free parking spaces and free high-speed WI FI.
