HOUSEKEEPING SECRETS... Facing the cold hard facts

If you're a person who says yes most of the time, you'll find yourself in the hotel business and the restaurant business. Francis Ford Coppola. 

Having one of those days where it’s about the small stuff? Several guests ringing to reception to request handfuls of hand towels? Well it’s all in day’s work for hoteliers. 

So don't fret if your small towel supplies are dwindling, in fact why not schedule a ‘small towel check’ day to ensure quality and quantity of these little guys with your housekeeping team?

Hotel grade towels might be light and fluffy but this is serious business.

Guests are often heard to say that one of the best parts of their hotel stay are the plush array of luxury towels.

So why are hotel towels so much more absorbent that commercially available towels? Well those in the know will tell us that it’s something to do with how towels are washed in hot water with commercial detergent and no fabric softener, which somehow renders the cotton more absorbent.  

Luxury bath towels are worth a look for their fluffiness and affordability – with replacement far less often.  So if those towels have seen better days it might be timely to take a look at bath, face and hand towels and bath mats.   

 

 

HOUSEKEEPING TIPS... Saving the best till last

Saving the best till last

 

When it comes to hotel luxury, you can’t beat those relaxing soft bath robes. The bath robe is one of the key benchmarks for a quality hotel. And you want your guests to revel in their little oasis of luxury.

Robes are the perfect before-breakfast and nighttime attire to keep your guests warm and comfortable while they sip coffee over their morning newspaper on the balance or lounge beside a fire before turning down the sheets.  

Your guests will feel like royalty in a luxury bath robe. 

Remember to include a ‘bath robe check’ in your housekeeping schedule to ensure your guests are getting the best in bathrobes

HOUSEKEEPING TIPS... Mopping and Mats

Maintaining a high level of luxury and service is a mainstay of all good hotels.

And this means not overlooking the finer details, especially when it comes to the all important bathroom care. Whether bathroom cleaning is the best or worst part of your housekeeping routine, there’s always room for improvement.  

Our experts tell us that you should always sweep before you mop. You do not want wet hair on your floor- it can be difficult to remove. When it's time to mop, start from the far corner of the bathroom and make your way to the door.

Not only do your guests appreciate luxurious clean towels after taking a shower or bath but it’s the little touches of luxury such as stepping onto a fluffy soft bathmat.

Do your bathmat supplies need replenishing?   Quality bathmats and non-slip bath rugs are a dream for the guests.
