Carla Robinson - General Manager
Carla has been part of the furniture here at Langley for 28 years (she did leave briefly - but couldn't keep away)!!
Carla was born and bred in Haltwhistle which is a small market town only 8 miles from Langley.
Her passion with Langley started at the young age of 13 years old, although Carla had a much more mature head on her young shoulders. Following in her mums footsteps, her Saturday job soon escalated to a full time role within Josephine's Restaurant. Carla relished the day to day running of this busy Restaurant.
The itchy feet syndrome hit Carla, who decided to further her career by moving to Otterburn to work at the Percy Arms Hotel. She gained vast experience while there, learning all departments from Housekeeping through to Reception.
Carla then took a well earned break from the Hotel Industry to concentrate on bringing up her Daughter, (who has also followed Carla and her mum to Langley.)
Carla then decided to follow her heart and return to Langley, this time as junior receptionist, which was a role she relished. Within two years she was promoted to Reception Manager.
From there Carla started to take on roles other than Reception, when business dictated, she took on the role of duty Manager and it was soon realised, she had enormous potential within the Management team. Carla helped with the day to day running of Langley as well as running the many Wedding Receptions hosted here at the Castle. But, as always Carla kept pushing forward and also became Langley's Financial Controller, keeping all the accounts up to date, she even took a further course to enable her to be classed as an official 'accountant'.
After another short spell away to further improve her managerial skills, she returned to Langley Castle to take on the postion of General Manager.
We all feel sure Carla will be at the helm for many years to come, and continue to give her all to Langley.
