Living La Tour: Drivers and Talents

Our Journey:

Building a profitable group of unique hotels where hospitable people create fabulous memories in stylish places

Helpful People

Lovely Places

Tremendous Service

From the Managing Director down, we are all working as one team, and our journey is what will help us arrive at our Destination.

Our Destination:

Hotel La Tour inspires and invests in our employees, who create the best possible places for guests to work, stay and play.

Our hospitable and friendly people create great experiences in stylish and comfortable surroundings.

A genuine desire to help others means our guests return again and again and have no hesitation in recommending us to others. Attention to detail in all that we do – from the food and drink we serve, the business environment we provide and the high standard of our guest accommodation – helps us to achieve sustainable business growth.

There are three key drivers which will help us ensure we reach our destination, these are:

Our Drivers:

Being Sociable

Positive Attitude


It’s helpful to think of these Drivers as talents – they are the talents you possess and which will be developed during your career with Hotel La Tour – to ensure we enjoy the journey and reach our destination.
