General Manager of Wedmore Place Passionate About Treating Guests to a First Class Experience
Your stay has to be perfect at Wedmore Place for Angela Smith to be satisfied.
As General Manager of the European-style boutique inn where no two rooms are alike, she oversees every detail big and small. Each room or suite is named and patterned for a province of Europe and decorated with period pieces and artwork from that place.
Guests often visit to celebrate a milestone. If so, Smith adds one of her signature touches to make the occasion even more memorable.
“I like giving celebratory bubbles or even a nice dessert from the Gabriel Archer Tavern,” said Smith, who joined the winery last fall.
Smith grew up on the Outer Banks and originally moved to Williamsburg to lessen her commute as a flight attendant. In that position, she discovered the rewards of not overlooking anything to ensure first class customer service.
Smith would regularly see the same faces on many flights, knowing which coffee they preferred and whether they liked ice, light ice or no ice in their orange juice. She applies that same philosophy to making sure guests are comfortable at Wedmore Place.
“The staff here is amazing, and we try to go above and beyond,” she said. “I really like being part of what people love about Wessex Hundred. I like giving them that extra experience, the wow factor, the awe of coming out here.” Beyond work, Smith is devoted to her dog, a black Lab of British descent, Sir Winston Wales. She loves to travel, especially to London.
