Getting to Know... Assistant Bar Manager, Rachel Billington

Our secret swimmer and all-round lovely lady…

Name: Rachel Billington

Position at Langstone Cliff: Assistant Bar Manager

Length of service: 10 years

Here at Langstone Cliff Hotel, we have some really great people. Many have been with us for a number of years and without them the hotel would not run as smoothly, and we’d like you to get to know them before, during and after your stay. 

Rachel Billington has the important job of helping to manage the buzz of Langstone Cliff’s popular Dawlish bar. and wonderful bar staff. Having been at the hotel on and off for a decade, she’s seen her fair share of the action here at Langstone Cliff, so we thought we’d ask a few questions about what makes Langstone Cliff so special to her…

What is your favourite memory from working at the hotel?

I have lots of incredible memories from working at Langstone Cliff. From the late-night after shift swims in the pool with other members of staff (occasionally 1 or 2 of the more regular guests would join us too!) to partying the night away at special functions and events with our lovely team and guests.

What makes Langstone Cliff so special to you?

The people who I work with really are my second family and all the lovely guests that say with us, whether it’s a holiday or a special event, I feel very privileged to be part of their time with us, helping to make those special memories which can be cherished for years and years. 

What’s your favourite time of year at the hotel?

Christmas! Isn’t it everyone’s favourite time? I love the festive period, the smell of mulled wine, the children’s excited faces when Santa has been and families gathering together. It’s just the best!

When not at the hotel, what is your favourite thing to do?

I have five-year-old twins, Rory and Isla who I devote all my extra time to – oh and my husband Martin! So family time is very special to me. Days out, weekends away, trips to the park to feed the ducks, they’re all my favourite things to do. Anything with them!

Arriving at Langstone Cliff Hotel soon for your special break? Stop by and say hello Rachel in the Lincoln Bar.
