2020 IN A NUTSHELL

August 05, 2019

2020 has been an extraordinary year in so many ways…

It has been difficult for everyone, both personally and professionally, and we have all had to adapt and explore a new way of doing things and a new way of living in the grips of a pandemic.

I am incredibly proud of our wonderful team here at The Montenotte that have stuck with us through thick and thin, through lockdown and reopening. Every time that they have been allowed to do what they do best, which is look after our guests, they have done a wonderful job.

The support and feedback which you have provided to us during the year has been invaluable in helping us to navigate our way through the toughest of years for the hospitality industry, so I would also like to thank you our valued customer for your continued support of The Montenotte. We look forward to welcoming you back in the very near future as brighter and better days lay ahead.

As we bid farewell (finally) to 2020, we look back at the best bits and remind ourselves of our achievements and the brilliant projects that we worked on throughout the year. As Seamus Heaney put it ‘If we winter this one out, we can summer anywhere’. Happy New Year!

Brian Bowler,
General Manager at The Montenotte Hotel

2021 - A YEAR IN REVIEW

2021 - A YEAR IN REVIEW – but a year to be very proud.

As we say goodbye to 2021, a year that has arguably been hugely challenging for our industry, we can’t help but be hopeful that 2022 will be a better one.

Even with all the challenges that faced us this year, what with us being in restrictions for the first five months of the year, here at The Montenotte Hotel, like so many others we pivoted, and this started by us opening our Vintage Van Café outside the front door of the hotel. The opening of the Vintage Van allowed us to bring some of our team members back to work. The locals here around the hotel in the Montenotte area, loved the Vintage Van Café as they went for walks within their 5KM radius. We are so appreciative of the support that the local community provided us with during those early days of 2021.
