Robin Hutson - CEO of The PIG Hotels

I think nothing typifies modern-English lifestyle-luxury hospitality more than the quirky The PIG hotels. Every property is a unique gem, converted from a really-old private house or pub and made into quintessential luxury for 2021. Expect a great bed and shower, and public areas that offer upcycled furnishings, living potplants on your dining table and the best local-produce food – plus a working garden to die for.  My guest this week on MARY GOSTELOW GIRLAHEAD PODCAST is the conductor of all this, Robin Hutson.

#100 Robin Hutson - CEO Limewood and Home Grown Hotels

For my 100th episode I really wanted to get a bit of an industry super star in my eyes.  Robin Hutson has been on my list of people I’ve wanted to chat to since day one of launch.  

I live within a pretty easy cycle of two of Robin’s PIG hotels - Pig on the Beach in Studland and Pig in the Forest in Brockenhurst.  I LOVE what Robin has created.  

I’ve seen Robin talk at a couple of hotel events and in essence he just knows his stuff.  He oozes common sense and his attention to detail is exemplary.  His venues have plenty of open grounds, an awesome kitchen garden supplying the kitchen with exceptional seasonal produce, relaxed ambience and surroundings, good food and wonderfully designed venues, but not pretentious.  It really is just a great business and his occupancy figures and margins are the envy of many a competitor.

They say never meet your heroes, and I was worried having finally organised a meeting I’d be disappointed.  But Robin was generous with his time, enthusiastic with his stories and I felt privileged to get to poke and prod at one of our hospitality greats in his own venue.  

So there could not really be a more fitting person for my 100th show.  A genuine human of hospitality.

Dubbed 'Britain's most influential hotelier', Robin Hutson, founder of the iconic PIG hotels, left school with 3 O-levels and few prospects. It was a sideways step into catering college which saw passion, vision and excitement alight for the first time - and would set the scene for Robin’s story to truly begin into becoming one of the most famous hoteliers in the UK.

This episode charts Robin’s career within hospitality, from courting famous faces at The Savoy in his early days to starting his first groundbreaking hotel chain ‘Hotel Du Vin’, before launching ‘The Pig’.
Holly & Robin discuss how to create a distinctive experience at each hotel whilst maintaining the golden thread of ‘brand’ throughout, as well as his philosophy of recruiting staff and the all-important attention to detail. 

In his letter to self, Robin aged 63 ¾ speaks to his 15 ¾ self and shares all the things he might need to know in a very special shared moment. Whether you're building a business in hospitality, or just appreciate a brilliant brand with acute attention to detail, Robin’s story is a must-listen!
