Do you have a sense of adventure? Would you like the
opportunity to experience a unique way of life whilst working in
the hospitality industry?
Tranquil Rose is a hotel with a difference; a

small team, be able to multitask, be physically fit and enjoy

opportunity of waking up with a different view outside your bedroom
(cabin) window each morning?
This is a “live on board” position in shared crew accommodation
and all your food, accommodation, laundry and uniform will be
To sum up; if you like the outdoor life, work well in a team, have
some cooking skills, are willing to turn your hand to cleaning,
boat handling, working locks, and are outgoing and sociable, this
could be the job for you.
