A warm, welcoming reception at Greetham Valley Posted on December 11, 2011 at 12:05 pm.Written by Dee Hinch The old adage ‘first impressions count’ could not be more true than within the hospitality industry and the Greetham Valley Receptionists are very often the first members of staff whom visitors to the Hotel meet. We are fortunate in having such a genuinely warm and welcoming team of ladies on our Reception desk, each of whom appreciates and promotes the friendly ethos of our family run venue. Maybe it is a ‘Rutland’ thing? Rutlanders are by and large a friendly crowd – we are delighted that visitors have swerved off the A1 or A47 to find Rutland Water and the smallest county in England! Our Head Receptionist is Helen, who has been at Greetham Valley since 2005 in varying roles before proving that her forte is managing a dynamic team of front of house ‘meeters and greeters’. She is ably assisted by Receptionists Ann, Annice and Sandra, whose mature, calm outlooks on life are reflected in the fact that very little fazes or surprises them in their day to day duties! Mind you, they could all relate some stories of bizarre requests or queries encountered whilst behind the Reception desk – but, professional to the core, they won’t tell…. Discretion meets common sense and a genuine liking for people in general – the perfect combination! We are delighted to introduce you to our Reception ladies – and hope you look forward to meeting them face to face at Greetham Valley one day soon!
