Dont let them get to you
Despite everything, all the moans and groans etc its still one of the best jobs in the world, yes the hours are long and sometimes you could kill some of the guests,
But all in all i don't think i would want to do anything else, its at this time of the year that you can reflect on what kind of season its been and this one has been the best for 10 years.
Talking to a few others in the business its also been very good especially for the smaller hotels/guest houses etc who can always be reactive quickly to any changes and circumstances.
although we will still be open for a few weekends etc its just not worth staying open for the whole stretch we have found that maybe its better to close for a short while recharge the batteries, and then come back to get the whole place ready for next season
We are always trying to upgrade the hotel, constantly refurbishing rooms, painting, buying new furniture and all that kind of stuff so that when guests come back they can see that we care and that we are always trying to improve, maybe that's where some of the larger hotels go wrong everything stays the same for years and years then there is a total refurb and its nothing like it was, change is not always good and some guests will always moan about it.
