Pride of Britain Hotels, the 50-strong collection of Britain’s finest, independently owned hotels, is delighted to announce the addition of four new members to its non-executive board. With over 25 years’ experience in the British luxury hospitality industry, Jason Adams, Managing Director of Rockliffe Hall joins alongside Jill Chalmers, Managing Director, Glenapp Castle; Ross Grieve, Managing Director, Seaham Hall; and Andrew McPherson, General Manager, Grantley Hall.
Over the past 28 years Jason has held senior management positions at The Lygon Arms, Foxhills Club and Resort, the Arden Hotel, the Atlantic Hotel and Ocean Restaurant in Jersey and Seaham Hall and Serenity Spa in County Durham.
The appointments bolster the existing non-executive board which, in addition to Pride of Britain’s Chief Executive, Peter Hancock, includes Chairman Sue Williams (who took over the role of Chairman from Dan Rose-Bristow in November 2020, and who is also Managing Director of Whatley Manor in Wiltshire).
“Rockliffe Hall is a proud longstanding member of Pride of Britain Hotels who offer some of the most luxurious country house and boutique hotels in the UK. I am delighted to join the Pride of Britain non-executive board at such an exciting time for the hospitality industry as we reopen our doors. The past year has been tough, but I’m feeling positive about the next few months and what we can bring to guests who are longing for those missed hotel experiences. I look forward to working alongside my fellow non-executive board members and the wider Pride of Britain leadership team.” commented Jason Adams.
Other members of Pride of Britain’s non-executive board include Dan Rose-Bristow (Owner, The Torridon), Stas Anastasiades (Operations Director, Maison Talbooth), Craig Bancroft (Managing Director, Northcote), Mark Chambers (Group Managing Director, Eden Hotel Collection/Bovey Castle), Neil Kedward (Owner, Grove of Narberth), Michele Mella (General Manager and Director, Barnsley House) and Andrew Thomason (Managing Director, Gravetye Manor).

Celebrated chef Paul Nicholson will become Head Chef of the flagship Orangery restaurant later this month.
