Born in Rhineland I started my hotel career as a bell boy at the Kempinksi Hotel “Vier Jahreszeiten” in Munich. From there I moved on to the world famous 5 star Brenner’s Park Hotel, Baden-Baden where I was trained in service, kitchen and reception. If you should ever get a chance to go to the Black Forest, you have to visit Baden-Baden. and must pop into Brenner's Park Hotel where the English footballers' wives stayed during the World Cup 2006. It is such a wonderful place.
I then decided to come to England professionally for the first time and I went to the University of Surrey, Guildford, reading a Bachelor of Science degree in hotel and catering management. These most enjoyable 3 years were the founding for my love for England.
Between then and the day I moved to Lymington, I worked in various places, among them the fabulous 5star Chewton Glen Hotel & Country Club, New Milton. Other stops were Mövenpick Restaurants, Hanover, the Savoy Hotel, Cologne and Hollington House Hotel in Newbury.
In 2000, I decided to set up my own business and I very happily found Britannia House here in Lymington, historically and architecturally a real gem. Unbelievable, but true, it was the very first house I looked at in my search for the perfect house in a prime location.
Since then I got married to a Swiss from Geneva at Highcliffe Castle, Christchurch, 20 minutes driving distance from here and a must see during your stay at Britannia House and had two great kids whom we are delighted to bring up in such a beautiful part of England.
