Kirsty Speller

Kirsty is a local girl who grew up in the pretty Hampshire market town of Ringwood, just a few miles down the road from Bournemouth. Having graduated with a BA in Leisure and Marketing from Bournemouth University in 1999 Kirsty moved to a small village on the outskirts of Brighton, where she learnt her trade working in a country house hotel with views over the South Downs. It was here she met her husband Mark who was the head chef and they married at the hotel in 2003. A few years later they were tempted back to Bournemouth and Kirsty quickly became the manager of the Arlington Hotel in the Lower Gardens. Kirsty also became manager of Bowlaway and has ran it successfully for over 15 years.

Kirsty has a wealth of experience in hotels and tourism, accrued over more than 20 years.

Kirsty has a flair for organisation and customer service and is absolutely committed to ensuring all Bowlaway visitors have a wonderful time on tour. Her attention to detail and the ability to go the extra mile means that our guests are always assured of a personal service.
