Meet Our Revenue Manager, Oceane Mechain

Born in the south of France, get to know more about our wonderful Revenue Manager and her favourite parts of living in Cornwall.



Born in France, Oceane was raised in a small village in the south next to Perpignan. After studying for a degree in maths and a master's degree in hospitality management in France, Oceane decided she wanted to work in revenue management.

A keen traveller, Oceane graduated before working briefly in Spain and Belgium. Finally, she decided to move to UK 10 years ago to improve her English, and hasn't looked back since! Starting off for several years in the hospitality industry in Birmingham and London, she heard of a vacancy to work for The Alverton and our sister hotel, The Greenbank, as the Revenue Manager. Oceane got the job and has been a member of the team for five years. The move to Cornwall meant Oceane could enjoy one of her favourite past-times with some of the best surfing spots right on her doorstep. 


What is your favourite part about the job?

I love the challenge presented at the beginning of each month to fill up all the bedrooms in the hotel, and the strategy side of my work.


Can you describe The Alverton in five words?

A small Eden in town.


What's the best thing about living in Cornwall?

Out of all the areas in the UK I have lived, Cornwall feels the most like my home town in the south of France. I love Cornwall for the surfing scene as well.


What one attraction or place would you recommend to guests as a 'must-see'?

I’m a big fan of Godrevy. It's the perfect destination for a walk on the beach, a surf session or seal spotting.


Finally, what's your favourite Cornish delicacy?

Rattler! Nothing beats a good Cornish cider.
