Jonathan Ashley-Cowan
Managing Director

Jonathan studied Hotel Management at Westminster College straight from school, learning the art of hospitality from the ground up. Having held various positions under the trainee management program within Ladbroke Hotels and latterly The Hilton Group. Since joining the family business PHR in 1989 he has gained broad experience across all departments ... Reservations, Conferences, Special Events and even Accounts before becoming a Director and then Managing Director in 2000.
Formed back in 1987, PHR started as an independent corporate hotel booking agency, its services and reach in the last quarter of a century has developed to offer venue & conference finding, event search and booking & full event management.

Jonathan and his young family enjoy anything remotely edgy in outdoor pursuits... snowboarding, canoeing, rock climbing, wakeboarding, motorbike track days – in fact, it’s a nice surprise when he turns up each week, intact!

Best country visited: Japan and India - those that offer complete and utter contrasts to life in the UK.

we love what we do
and so do our clients

} "The hotel tried to charge me VAT on checking out. I was able to show them the booking confirmation from PHR, which stated that the price was inclusive of VAT. They then corrected this. I have allways had excellent service from your helpfull staff. Thankyou again"
