Lauren Nygren has been named as the winner of The Winchester Royal Employee of Month Award for July.

Since joining the team earlier in the year as a Food and Beverage Assistant, Lauren has provided exceptionally high levels of customer service and has consistently satisfied guests along the way. This was apparent even more so during July as Lauren received positive feedback on numerous occasions with special mentions for her positive and friendly service.

General Manager at The Winchester Royal Hotel, Louis Rigney, explained the reasons for naming Lauren as this month’s winner. He said: “When someone receives such positive feedback from guests, it’s hard to overlook them for praise. Plus, Lauren is not only very well-liked by guests but is held is very high regarded by her colleagues too.

“I receive many positive comments about the F&B team, but Lauren was the standout recipient of recognition during July and that’s why she received this award.”

There is certainly a feel-good factor around the Garden Restaurant at the moment. Recently named as the best restaurant in Winchester and third best in Hampshire, a new summer menu has also just been launched.

Louis added: “There’s been a positive feeling around our food and beverage offering for a while now. The new menu has been a success and it seems that we’re consistently handing the Employee of the Month awards to members of the F&B team.

“I, and the rest of the senior team at the hotel, would like to thank Lauren and the rest of the F&B department for their efforts and look forward to receiving more positive feedback about them in the months to come.”

The winner of the employee of the month award receives a £30 Love2Shop voucher, which Lauren is pictured collecting from Operations Manager, Tom Pyke.
