Louise, who now lives in Worksop, said: “I’m thrilled to be taking on the role of general manager at the new Hilton Garden Inn Doncaster Racecourse hotel.
“As a new build hotel, in a fantastic location, I’m excited to get to work on building up a strong team and ensuring that when we’re ready to welcome our guests this summer, they get the very best experience possible.”
