The Belfry appoints new resort general manager

The Belfry Hotel & Resort has announced Chris Eigelaar’s promotion to resort general manager.

Eigelaar joined The Belfry in 2018 as general manager and has over 20 years of experience in the hospitality sector. He has worked in hotels and resorts across the UK, including DoubleTree by Hilton, Locke Hotels, Sofitel, The Midland Hotel and QHotels.

Eigelaar said: “It is an honour to take on the role of Resort General Manager and continue to deliver and build on what we have created at the Belfry and ensure we retain our position as a major player in the hospitality industry, while still offering our guests the same warm and welcoming award-winning Belfry experience that we are renowned for. I am looking forward to exploring new opportunities with the Belfry team.

“It has been a difficult time for the hospitality industry and there is still a long road ahead of us given hotels and venues aren’t yet permitted to operate at full capacity however, now that vaccinations have begun does mean there is light at the end of the tunnel.”
