Ingo Wiangke, general manager, said: “Malcolm has seen a great number of changes and people come and go.

“He is a valued member of our team and some of our regular guests know him by name.”

Malcolm, who, lives in Lavenham with his wife Valerie, said: “The responsibility for the entire hotel and all the guest is quite good.

I have to think on my feet if there is a problem.

“I go to bed at breakfast and get up to dinner. Not everybody can do it, you have to be a little different I think.”
