Careers at Perle Hotels

Our staff give their thoughts on working at Perle Hotels.

Breakfast Supervisor

John Bennett

I Joined Perle Hotels in: February 2017

My Journey so far: Having previously had plenty of experience within the hospitality industry, I chose to join The Bosville as I wanted to take on a role and be part of a company that I could really sink my teeth into and invest my time, energy and passion through every project I take on. The team here are all very like-minded and it creates a great working atmosphere. I hope to continue my journey with Perle Hotels are further my personal career aspirations.

Passions and Past-times: Outside of work I run my own business as a PT (personal trainer) and have gained nutrition qualifications as well as having studied a lot of physiotherapy courses. I love outdoor sports and also spend my free time working part time as an axe-throwing and archery instructor in a local outdoor centre. I also enjoy climbing, kayaking and generally being a nerd with PC’s and technology.

My Best Day Ever: Although I have been fortunate enough to have many memorable days that I could have chosen, the following is one that repeatedly comes to mind. During the three years that I spent in Australia, I trained to become a pro-MMA fighter, and I’d say my first victory in the semi-pro ring at AFC 2015 has been a personal highlight of my life so far, and will be a day that I will never forget.


Hayley Maclennan

I Joined Perle Hotels in:​ April 2016

My Journey so far: ​I started with Perle doing part time hours as a member of front of house staff I was the promoted to supervisor when the hotel was closed for a refurb I was moved to another perle hotel to do reception which I found I really enjoyed meeting new people from across the globe every day.

Passions and Past-times: ​I love walking my dogs with my husband and 3 children we pack up a picnic (on good days!!!) and off we go.

My Best Day Ever: ​My son has non-verbal Autism he is now 10years old and does not speak……I was in the kitchen at home and a little voice behind me said “ MUM “ I turned to find Kyle staring at me and he said it again I could not believe it I burst into tears I was so happy.

Maintenance Manager

​Raymond Coughlin

I Joined Perle Hotels in: July 2015

My Journey so far: Having started in three different hotels with so much needing done, it was more firefighting than maintenance to begin with…but after two renovations we are slowly but surely starting to get there.

Passion and Past-times: I have five children so don’t have much time for past times – but they are my passion.

My Best Day Ever: I cannot pick one ‘best’ day as such – but every time that I fix something deemed as ‘unfixable’ I get a lot of satisfaction!
