Katie Featherbe

I have been working here for a number of years and am now part of the furniture!

I have previously worked as a leisure assistant and over the years have progressed in my job role. I am now the Spa and Membership Supervisor.

Since working in the spa I have been on various training to become a fully qualified NVQ level 3 beauty therapist, I am very passionate about massage therapy!

After taking a year away from work to start a family I am now back part time (you cant keep me away!)

My spare time is all about spending time with my Husband and our little girl!

Darren Stewart

Personal Trainer & Leisure supervisor

My name is Darren and I am a personal trainer here at the Hythe Imperial Hotel, I’ve worked here on and off for the past 5 years and have a world record for the amount of sweat produced in a half hour.

I’ve struggled personally with my own weight and at one point I was well over 145 kilos, so I can empathise with anyone who is trying to lose weight. I love the challenge of helping others and enjoy putting together programs and instructing classes. Boxercise is a favourite of mine and I once successfully boxed my way out of a paper bag!

 In my spare time I am an avid hard-core Knitting fan and also love turnip carving, of which I am now gaining popularity. I would love to combine the two and maybe carve some knitting needles out of turnips on a 12k run! I’ll keep you posted.
