Sandy Mount House has appointed Jo Watson to head up its management team. Jo will be managing the onsite team, overseeing day-to-day operations and managing supplier relationships.
Jo comes to Sandy Mount House from online fashion retailer boohoo.com where she was head of procurement and facilities for over five years. Jo started her career in the hotel industry working for Shire Hotels and she has extensive experience of managing large teams and budgets.
Jo and her husband Shaun have made the move from the North West of England and have bought a home on Anglesey.
Jo said: “I am so excited by the new challenge at Sandy Mount House. It may seem a world away from the larger environment at boohoo.com, but fundamentally my role is the same; it’s about building a happy team in a thriving environment that is a commercial success.”
“I can’t wait to greet our first guests in the coming weeks. I want to ensure that we exceed their expectations with our hospitality, service and quality that will keep locals and visitors alike coming back for more.”
“Sandy Mount House is something different for Anglesey and set to become a talking point and focal point for the beautiful village of Rhosneigr.”
Louise Goodwin owner of Sandy Mount House said: “I have known Jo for a number of years. I knew that her warmth and personality would be a perfect fit for what we are aiming to achieve at Sandy Mount House. Coupled with her commercial acumen, she is the ideal manager for us. We want to offer the best in service and quality. We can’t wait to open our doors with Jo at the helm.”
Once completed, Sandy Mount House will feature a 120+ cover stylish restaurant for relaxed family dining, a cool yet relaxed and welcoming bar, and seven luxury hotel rooms. The intention is that the restaurant will be open seven days a week offering breakfast, lunch and dinner along with coffees, cakes, sweet treats and bar snacks. It is aiming to be a focal point for the village, through its offering of relaxed dining and drinking – with something for everyone.
