A SEAFRONT hotel has promoted its deputy manager to take the helm.

Jason Bramwell is new general manager of The Old Ship in Brighton, having been deputy for the last five years.

In his new role, Jason, originally from Norwich, will oversee the day-to-day running of the Cairn Group-owned property.

Having been in the hospitality industry since the age of 17, Jason began his career in the kitchen before transitioning to customer-facing roles and relocating to Brighton 17 years ago.

He said: “I moved to Brighton many years ago and fell in love with the city so it’s an honour to step into my first role as general manager at such a well-known hotel in the area.

“I am a big believer in staff engagement and am looking

forward to leading the hotel’s great team, as we take on some

new challenges together

and ultimately, make

sure our guests have a fantastic experience.”

The Old Ship Hotel is a 154-bedroom property which forms part of The Cairn Collection.

The group owns and operates 33 hotels.
