The Best Thing About Hotels


I’ve just come back from a lovely break in Majorca with my family. It was our first holiday alone (all the other times we’ve gone with family or friends, this was just me, my wife and daughter) and was brilliant!!

Of course, we stayed in a lovely hotel. This was a bit of a home from home for me as my day to day work is as an accountant in a hotel. Every day, I see hotels running from the back-office, from orders to cooking, maintenance to payroll, but I never stopped to think about the housekeepers and the work they do. Oh sure, I work with them everyday and get on well with them, but because I don’t go in the rooms I don’t see the fruits of their labour. On holiday, I got reminded of the cracking job they do.

As this brings us to the nub of my post: The Best Thing About Hotels………. Coming back to your room after a tiring day doing whatever and finding the bed made nicely, fresh towels in the bathroom and the room tidy and smelling wonderful! We all hate doing housework, even the clean freaks who do it religiously would like to stop if they knew it would get done, it’s just such a stressful monotonous job! So when you go on holiday, you want to relax and not do those type of jobs.

I can think of nothing more relaxing than a clean room and remembering you don’t have to worry about making a mess because YOU don’t have to clean it! The rest of the holiday is just a bonus πŸ™‚

  1. That hotel looks lovely and it is definitely a pleasure to come back when a room that was left in a bit of a state is sparkling clean when you return! Always nice to have a great family holiday too – glad you guys enjoyed your holiday πŸ˜€

    I’ve worked in bars, restaurants and hotels forever! The cleaners and housekeepers never get the thank you they deserve and all of us front of house people get lots of thank yous’ (and f’ you’s, hehe!), seriously though, the housekeeping dept does a better and harder job than they get credit for. Cheers guys and gals! x

    P.S. Nicely said!
