UK: Anthony Chapman has been appointed general manager of The Idle Rocks and St Mawes Hotel.

He will manage the day-to-day running of The Idle Rocks and will be overseeing the St Mawes Hotel's current renovation project and its reopening in spring 2015.

With over 15 years experience in hospitality management, Chapman takes up the post after running an advisory service to independent hotels such as Stapleford Park Country House Hotel and Golf Club, Melton Mowbray and The Hartmoll Hotel. Before that he was GM at The Old Quay House Hotel in Fowey.

David Richards, owner of The Idle Rocks, commented: "We were looking to appoint a skilled hotelier who understood what our customers required from their stay with us, which is that of a stylish and luxurious retreat. What was also an imperative pre-requisite was a solid grasp and understanding of what matters to a local community as being at the heart of the village is very much what the St Mawes Hotel stands for. Anthony's broad experience of the luxury UK hotel market, coupled with his thorough understanding of driving successful Cornish boutique hotels, made him the perfect candidate for the role."

Chapman said: "I look forward to working with the existing team to continue and improve on the exceptional and unique experience we provide our guests, whilst further cementing St Mawes' reputation as a desirable Cornish location for visitors and village regulars."
