Dorota Banecka from our Housekeeping department is Team Member Of The Month at The Dragon Hotel, Swansea for April 2010.
Dorota has been a member of the Housekeeping team at The Dragon for over a year now and has been committed to her position with us from day one.
She is always happy to come to work and will always greet you with a smile and a “Hello” to all of our guests and colleagues alike.
Her work is top-notch and is classed as one of the best Housekeepers in the hotel, leaving her bedrooms spotless and ready for the next guests. She will go out of her way to assist you in anyway needed and sets a great example for the rest of the Housekeeping Team. Upon receiving her prize Dorota was quite taken aback and says that she is “over the moon” to be the recipient of the award from the management of the hotel.
“Congratulations on winning your prize, Dorota, and keep up the excellent work.” – Gwenno Priestland, Housekeeping Manager

The Dragon Hotel’s Directors, Management and Staff were delighted to receive The Best Hotel award at the eagerly awaited Inaugural ‘Swansea Life’ Awards held at The National Waterfront Museum on December 5th.
In a glitzy affair of 200 nominees the tourism, leisure and hospitality industry of the Swansea Bay region celebrated the best in the trade. With fourteen different awards ranging from Best Event to Overall Winner, each category not only merited an outright winner but also several highly commended entrants from very diverse trade businesses within the area.
The short list for The Best Hotel Award also included Swansea Village Hotel and Morgan’s Hotel.
Tim Priestland, General Manager of The Dragon Hotel says of these accolades: “We were very happy and very surprised to have won and especially happy for all the staff here. We have won awards before, but nothing that was based around the recognition of our clients and customer base so completely”
