What’s it like to work at the Cranleigh Boutique?

Jo Spencer - Tuesday, March 22, 2016

The Cranleigh Boutique first opened in 2007 and since then, we’ve built a fabulous brand with some unique accommodation offerings. The Cranleigh Boutique was named the UK’s most romantic hotel in 2013; the Boutique Church Suites were named ‘best design in the UK and second in the world’; and we’re just about to launch our newest venture, The Fizzy Tarté! Behind the scenes of all these undertakings, has been a creative and loyal team of employees. They’ve stuck with

us through thick and thin! We caught up with 29 year old Mickeala Nattrass, who joined the Cranleigh back in the very beginning.


Mickeala’s story:


Former ‘Lakes school’ pupil, Mickeala, has been a key part of the Cranleigh team for 10 years. Starting in housekeeping, Mickeala quickly climbed the ranks and is now the general manager of the Cranleigh Boutique Hotel.


“When I first started working for the Cranleigh, there wasn’t actually a job for me, but owner, Stephen Hargreaves, saw something in me and employed me nonetheless!” she said. “The team is very loyal and essentially, that’s because of the way they are treated by management.”

Mickeala, whose family live in the surrounding area, also puts her success down to her strong work ethic, starting a part time job aged just 13. She took her education all the way and has a degree in hospitality excellence. And she sees herself going all the way at the Cranleigh, with no plans to work anywhere else.

“Stephen recognises that if you look after employees, they give their very best. For the right people, the career path at the Cranleigh is exceptional.”


Do you have what it takes?
