Hotelier welcomes permit change

Put yourself in our shoes, says hotelier

A move to ease staffing shortages in the Manx hospitality sector has been welcomed by an experienced hotelier.

A union head later claimed it could lead to lower wages.

However, Michael George, who runs the Welbeck Hotel in Douglas, says those comments are ill-informed and the move will help small hoteliers.
