#086 – Hospitality Meets Stephen Carter OBE – The Hospitality Legend

I love who I get introduced to as part of the Podcast. Todays guest represents that.

I chat to Stephen Carter OBE, one of Scotland’s most legendary hoteliers. For someone whose career has spanned over 40 years, you can imagine we get through a lot including:-

  • East Neuk
  • Untrue reputations
  • Scottish seafood
  • Humble beginnings
  • Picking up accents
  • Rejecting the Seychelles
  • Holiday Inn
  • Moving to Scotland
  • The Motivated Team
  • The Tobacco Patch
  • Buying the rights to Le Man
  • Cars
  • Setting aside time to dream
  • Integrating locally
  • The East coast path
  • New opening foibles
  • State of the art fire alarm systems
  • Making the best of a bad situation
  • Entertaining the King of Jordan
  • The OBE

And so much more. Stephen is an absolutely legend and is very open with some cracking stories throughout.
