Behind the scenes

Just a few photos to show some of the staff, some of whom don’t always get seen so much but with out their help we could never operate.

This photo shows Montse and Maria, the two new staff this year

Montse took over from Mari Jose who had been with us for 8 years, but stopped working with us when she moved to Arriondas. Montse is from Collia and works in the evening in the kitchen cleaning up after the messy cooks (and guests) and at weekends with the cleaning.

Maria (with darker hair) helps Joe in the kitchen making bread and with food preparation in general. She is from the Basque country but has been living in Gijon (Asturias) for the last couple of years.

In the photo above Mari Carmen and her daughter Patricia.

Mari Carmen has now been with us for 10 years (poor Mari Carmen) and works full time all the year round. It’s her job to prepare breakfasts, help keep the hotel clean and tidy, receive guests in the afternoon. In the winter when we are shut she paints the hotel from top to bottom!

Patricia has been with us 3 years, she mostly helps with the cleaning but like all the staff covers for other jobs including breakfast, recepcion and evening meals once a week.

Finally Mari Carmen with her smile waiting to meet new guests.
