"DoubleTree by Hilton is regarded by many as being one of the premier brands

across the hotel sector, with Cadbury House being a flagship venue in the UK.

"It has already gained a considerable

reputation within the hotel and leisure sector and it's a very exciting time to

join. With Cadbury House being part of a privately owned business I'm delighted

to be part of a group that has total autonomy in what it does which will

provide endless opportunities to improve the offer.

"Cadbury House is totally unique and is the

only venue of its kind that can offer four-star accommodation, premier

conference facilities, a Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill and

health club and spa all within the same grounds.

"In addition there is no other venue that

can offer parking for up to 350 cars making it the ideal venue for many

corporate conferences and meetings.

"It's this offer we'll be looking to

consolidate by working closely with those that have already made it the success

it is."

Nick Taplin, co-owner of DoubleTree by

House. He has an excellent track record and his ambition and drive will ensure

it maintains the high standards our customers now expect."
