How long have you worked at Mercure Edinburgh City - Princes Street Hotel
It will be my 7th year in April 2017!
What changes have you seen over the years at the hotel?
Many things have changed over the years, including our re-brand to become a Mercure Hotel.
What has been your career highlight so far?
I have had the pleasure of working in several different hotels over the years in a few different cities. The many different people that I have worked with and we have faced many different challenges on a daily basis. Getting through the day is a challenge at times.
Describe your typical day for us?
There is no typical day in the hotel industry every day is different which is part of the appeal.
What do you love about Edinburgh?
I love that Edinburgh is such a vibrant city and is full of tourists from all over the world. I always feel very patriotic and proud when people tell us how wonderful our capital city is (besides the fact I'm Glaswegian...).
If you were a tourist in the city for the first, where would you go?
I'd book a superior room at Mercure Edinburgh, chill out with a bottle of bubbly on the balcony and enjoy the most fabulous views ever!
