The skill set you have is customer service based. Receptionists positions want good communication skills. You are more than qualified to be a Receptionist. I don't know about your administrative skills, but you can learn those as a Receptionist. I would hire you based on your previous employment. I recommend playing up those people skills as well as leadership as a Manager. You got this! Just play it up.
