In October 2019 The Sunday Times Travel magazine voted us in their top 56 Hotels of the World, one of only 5 in the UK, alongside the Ritz in Paris, the Mark in New York and the Limewood in the UK.

We achieved this accolade by focusing on developing a truly happy team of engaging, passionate people who agree and constantly deliver our simple truth –  that we are here to make people happy.

We are a growing and ambitious business with more Gallivant’s in the pipeline, news of which will be announced in the coming months.

  • World-class training. And lots of it.
  • Delicious, free food.
  • Free yoga.  In fact all our Experience classes are free.
  • A happy, supportive atmosphere.
  • Free monthly spa treatments.
  • A wage of at least £9.00 hour (whatever your age).
  • Lots of financial rewards and bonuses.
  • Discounted gym membership.

Our people make everything possible with their commitment, happiness and energy.

In exchange we offer a truly holistic environment, industry leading rewards and an incredibly exciting future.
