Serrania de Ronda’s Molino del Santo confident of bumper season

Building for the boom

LAST UPDATED: 4 Mar, 2016 @ 15:42

AS the international press predicts a bumper year for Spanish tourism thanks to the many ‘off-limit’ countries, some local businesses are already making plans to deal with the boom.

One rural hotel in the Serrania de Ronda has seen advance reservations rise by 60% on the same time last year.

Molino del Santo, now in its 30th year, is so confident of a bumper season that it is looking for new staff before its doors have even opened.

Although there are over 20 staff who have ‘guaranteed’ jobs, the management foresees 2016 trade increasing to a level that will require more hands.

The award-winning restaurant and hotel traditionally employ local people wherever possible. However, they now need a fluent English and Spanish speaker to complement the existing team.

“We are a restaurant that prides itself on high standards in all we do,”  says Manager and Owner Pauline Elkin.

“We know that staff selection is crucial to our continued success so we are exploring many avenues to find the right person.”

Co-Manager and Owner Andy Chapell adds that the hotel needs ‘a very special person’ with experience of the hospitality trade to help lead the restaurant team – a new role for 2016.

If you are a bilingual (English and Spanish) speaker capable of organising a team and who enjoys the hospitality industry, there is an opportunity to join the special atmosphere of an award-winning hotel.
