We have owned and operated a 14 unit Motel. Together we were fully hands-on and involved in all aspects of the Motel operation from guest services, reservations, payments, etc. to property management: from cleaning and servicing units to laundry, gardening, lawn mowing and pool & spa maintenance. Working closely with the housekeeping staff we ensured that presentation for guests was kept at the highest quality.

Since late 2018 we have undertaken various Motel minding/temporary management contracts completing all tasks of running the business. Our recent assignments have included an 23 unit Motel in Auckland and a 14 unit Motel in the Waikato and 18 unit Motel in New Plymouth.

We are active, computer literate and quick to learn: willing to take on any work required and pride ourselves on a high standard of guest service and Unit cleanliness.

Available for additional opportunities and challenges to assist you where possible.

My husband and I have just competed 2 years upgrading a Motel business which was run down with low occupancy. We have successfully increased occupancy by 63% and tariff for the summer season by 100%. We have great reviews from our guests and both my husband and I have been working with people for over 25 years in sales, real estate agents who were very successful for our clients with negotiations and with the public one on one. My /our personal aim is to provide all customers/clients with a high level of service and satisfaction. We managed a motel which catered for over a 100 guests at any one time and we successfully had time for all our guests.
