Careers at The Nare

When the late Mrs Gray acquired The Nare in 1989 as her retirement project she resolved to make it the highest rated and most luxurious country house hotel in Cornwall. With almost 100 years of family hotel ownership to her name her experience in the hotel business was unparalleled and 25 years ago she embarked on a tasteful refurbishment programme to achieve her aims.

In 2000 her grandson, Toby Ashworth, became Managing Director and in 2004, the proprietor of the hotel. He is dedicated to continuing the work started by his grandmother. Today The Nare continues to be Cornwall’s highest rated AA four star hotel and the only ever four red star hotel in the county. He continues to invest in the hotel, constantly refurbishing every year, with capital plans in place for improvements over the next ten years. The Nare is luxuriously furnished with antiques and art, beautifully presented lounges and restaurants, spacious bedrooms with the latest technology.

However, the success of the hotel  does not only lie in the wonderful coastal location, the fine surroundings, nor indeed in the excellent food in the traditional Dining Room, or two-rosette Quarterdeck Restaurant.  All of those factors, of course, play a great part in bringing guests back to the hotel year after year, some of them many times.  The true success of the hotel lies in the dedicated loyal and caring staff who work here, many of them long-term, some with as many as 30 years service.  The understated thoughtful service that goes so naturally with the elegance of the hotel, the anticipation of guests’ needs, and the dedication, commitment and caring disposition of Nare staff is the hallmark of The Nare's success over the last quarter century.  It is no surprise therefore that staff appreciation by guests is the most commented on accolade week after week.
