Introducing the LimeHouse team
I thought it was the right time to introduce you to the team who are looking after LimeHouse for us this year – Rasa and Oliver. We knew Rasa from before as she had worked for us previously and when we were looking for someone to help us run the business, her name was top of the list. So we got in contact with her and, coincidentally, she and her boyfriend, Oliver, were looking for somewhere to live together and also a new challenge. After a number of meetings, coffees and Skype calls we were delighted when they accepted our offer to run the business for us this year.
And it has worked out really well. They act as hosts and welcome guests as well as cleaning the rooms and so far they have received great feedback on TripAdvisor and other sites – far better than we would have got! Unfortunately we keep all the exciting stuff, such as paying the bills and doing the pricing etc.
So who are they? Rasa is from Lithuania and has had a number of jobs from managing a branch of Subway to more recently being a receptionist at Hotel du Vin. She is excellent at customer service and makes everyone feel welcome. She enjoys exercise and is a regular visitor to the Eco gym on St James’s Street where she punishes herself doing circuit training. Another of her hobbies is dancing, including Zumba and Contemporary Jazz.
Oliver is from the Czech Republic and really enjoying his first opportunity to run a business. He takes a real pride in making sure all the rooms are clean and tidy which all guests recognise – and he keeps Rasa on her toes! His other great passion is motorbikes and he has recently bought one and passed his test to get a licence. So expect to see him chatting with biker mates outside LimeHouse from time to time.
Cooking and, in Rasa’s case, nutrition is also a passion they both enjoy which we can vouch for from the wonderful smells coming from the kitchen when we visit.
And of course both being young people, they enjoy Brighton for what it offers – the bars, restaurants and making new friends. So keep an eye out for them roller blading along the seafront – and give them a wave!
