Lionel Chatard

Leading the enthusiastic team at the National Trust’s Middlethorpe Hall & Spa – York’s only country house hotel. After many years working in the hospitality industry in Switzerland, France and in the UK, I guess I could be described as a seasoned hotelier with some skills in catering, negotiations, operation management, hospitality and event management.

Additionally my current position, working at one of the three Historic House Hotels of the National Trust, means that I also have a certain level of understanding of conservation, history and gardening.

I do enjoy (slow) trail running, classical music, countryside and architecture too... Dad to two cats
