Red Hotels is our umbrella name for our sister hotels Bedruthan and the Scarlet, both in Mawgan Porth, Cornwall.

Although the hotels are very different in style, our teams work closely together, while the spa, marketing, property and finance teams work across both.

Our spa is flourishing, thanks to the way each member of our team brings their own individuality and personality to their role actively caring for the people and planet around them.

We share a broad range of interests – hula hooping, photography, yoga and rock climbing to name a few – and encourage each other in being true to ourselves and finding genuine enjoyment in life and work.

The wonderfully warm work environment in the spa often leads to lasting friendships.

Our team thrives on supporting each other and creating a caring and enjoyable place for guests and staff.

Our goal is to “grow our own” managers but that is not always possible so we do recruit externally too.

Being a member of our Management Team is not like being a manager in any other business. You get a great team of people to lead and develop and you also get a whole new family to support you in being successful. We have a one-team culture and shared offices, allowing for a connected delivery of supporting our people. The recipe is quite simple:

Great People + Great Support x Great Team Work = Amazing teams and colleagues and happy guests

Professional kitchens can have bad reputations for long hours and chefs shouting and screaming at each other.

That’s not the case at Bedruthan. We make a real effort across our three kitchens to stay calm, measured and controlled. It remains a challenging environment to work in, but it’s an extremely rewarding team to be in.

You never stop learning and developing when you work in a kitchen, and this is something we’re really passionate about. For the right people, kitchens are about so many things. Teamwork, creativity, flair, passion are words we use a lot, and these are the kind of things you will get out of being part of our team.

Wild Café & The Herring Restaurant

Working in the Wild Café means offering a warm welcome to everyone – families with children, couples, and groups of friends. The Herring Restaurant is about creating a more sophisticated and intimate dining experience for couples, friends and families with children aged 12 years and older.

Our philosophy is that everyone who comes to either of our restaurants is coming into our home so we want to offer them a personal and highly personable service. The restaurant team are confident, friendly and passionate about looking after our guests and each other, delivering relaxed and attentive service and having fun.

Reception is the heart of Bedruthan and the hub of all hubs here at the hotel. Absolutely no day is like another! A haven of calm during the quieter months, it turns into a fast-paced place to work during the busy periods (easily seeing more than 300 faces during a peak day). It’s a one-stop-shop for guests to check in and out, find information, help and advice.

But we’re here for all sorts of other things too, from helping fellow staff with queries to looking after children and offering the occasional doggy day care service.

The reservations team are the first point of contact for new and returning guests. Communicating by phone and email, we get to know our guests needs and recommend and book their perfect holiday for them. This can be anything from an action-packed family break to a relaxed and romantic couple’s weekend away.

The work is fast-paced – there’s always something new and exciting happening at the hotel to learn about and tell our guests about. We all support each other, laugh and problem solve together… Reservations life is fast, frenetic and fun.

Teamwork and hard work are at the heart of our housekeeping team’s efficient and thorough service. Every single member of the team works to exacting standards to ensure the hotel sparkles as a luxury hotel should.

Life in this team is fast-paced and busy with plenty of challenges. We all take great pride in working together to provide an excellent service to our guests and colleagues, having plenty of fun and sharing plenty of laughter along the way.

The day-to-day life of a Property team member is like no other within the hotel. We have two key areas of work, reactive and planned works. Our reactive schedule changes constantly as do our priorities often resulting in exciting and challenging problem solving adventures!

The planned works are also rewarding as the hotels are always evolving and new facilities are created to add to our guest experiences. These projects are often meticulous and extensive but offer a great sense of achievement on completion.

Kids club and activities
The children’s team is extremely passionate about providing and delivering an action-packed, resourceful programme of events to delight, excite and entertain.

Whether this be children’s birthday parties, discos, pantomimes, arts and crafts, wake up & shake ups, slip and slides- no two days are ever the same!

Our main goal and philosophy is to go above and beyond to ensure that all parents and children leave our team smiling and with many happy memories.

Create Design Store & Art Gallery
During the peak holiday season, the shop and gallery are busy with guests looking for mementos of their holiday. Outside the busier holiday times, we might be meeting new artists and suppliers, refreshing the exhibitions in the gallery, or rehanging the paintings on display at Bedruthan and the Scarlet.

We are also involved in sourcing products for use in the hotels, as well as putting on and managing the craft breaks and fairs. It’s safe to say that working for Create draws on lots of different skills and takes an ability to juggle lots of different tasks in different areas at one time, but you’ll never be bored.

The Cocktail Bar
This is a great place to work with a mellow, friendly vibe, not to mention a spectacular sea view! Our job is very creative, we pride ourselves on concocting any drink our guests desire, based on the their personal preference.

We believe that what you drink should be as much of an experience as what you eat. So, we craft our own syrups, tinctures and bitters and source the highest quality products.

Events at Bedruthan are varied. We host external conferences and meetings, arrange weddings large and small, plus internal get-togethers, training sessions and the hotel’s own Craft and Design Fairs. We have a diverse mix of spaces at the hotel and there’s always something happening!

We’re always on-the-go, whether setting up spaces, attending planning meetings or overseeing the smooth running of events.

Finance and Staffing
The Finance Team at Red Hotels is like no other. Dedicated and performance-driven, we are integrated fully into the wider hotel, making for a varied working environment where every day is different.

We’re deeply involved with the hotel at every level, from getting new starters onto our systems, providing reporting and accounts to help guide direction and management decision-making, to the all important payroll.

We are an innovative, fun and friendly marketing team. Every day offers plenty of opportunities to explore our creative sides, as well as satisfy our technical leanings and love of data.

Our job is to explore fully the potential of all our digital channels, to share our lovely hotel with new and existing customers, to find creative new ways to build the hotel’s brand and monitor the performance of all our on-line channels.
