Honiton's Deer Park Hotel has been named in the AA's list of top hotels in the UK for staff wellbeing.
The country manor is one of just three establishments to make the cut - the other two being London’s The Milestone Hotel and the Northcote Hotel in Blackburn.
The Deer Park’s managing director Mark Godfrey credits his team for the success of the establishment, with staff retention at an average of around six years per employee.
The AA said: “Staff are fully trained in all areas, making them invaluable assets to the hotel; and friendship and camaraderie are heavily promoted across all levels.
Social events are a regular occurrence, with monthly outings organised by management, including a visit to Cheltenham Races, go-karting and a summer party for staff and their family.
Later this year, part of the team is being taken to New York for four days, as both a reward and a team building exercise.”
