New Place Hotel appoints new GM

Legacy Hotels and Resorts has appointed Nathan Chart as general manager at New Place Hotel in Southampton.

Chart joins New Place ahead of the phased reopening of hospitality following the pandemic and is looking forward to a busy summer ahead.

He moves to New Place from Chilworth Manor Hotel in Southampton, also managed by Legacy Hotels and Resorts, where he was GM for five years and is also the current chair of the Southampton and Region Hoteliers Association.

Legacy said Chart brings a “wealth of local market knowledge to New Place as well as a great deal of industry experience”. His 27 year career in hospitality has seen him work for international brands such as Marriott and Hilton as well as a number of quality four and five red star independent hotels across the South.

New Place Hotel is situated 12 miles from Portsmouth, 11 miles from Southampton city centre, and five miles from Fareham. Following new ownership in early 2017 and management from Legacy Hotels and Resorts, phase one of a £1.3m three-phase refurbishment programme to update the hotel’s bedrooms has recently been completed.

Chart said: “I am incredibly proud to be joining the outstanding team at New Place Hotel on the back of what has been an exceptionally challenging year. We are looking forward to welcoming leisure guests back to New Place from 17th May for short breaks or staycations and to hosting many weddings and events throughout the Summer and beyond.”
