Running and managing a small property is no walk in the park. It involves an abundance of hard work, dedication and passion for delighting guests.
Small property owners often find themselves not being able to leave their front desk as there is always plenty to do.
Then comes the moment of ‘I need a vacation!’ or what if a family or friend is getting married? What will you do? How will you leave your small property even for a few days?
Simple – you will need to start the search for the perfect innkeepers to look after your property.
A vacation won’t be a vacation if you are answering phone calls and emails. An innkeeper can answer all the calls and respond to guest emails, without you even having to lift a finger.
It’s important to find the right innkeeper who is on the same wavelength as you and shares a similar work ethic.
We have put together a checklist to make the selection process easy for you. Here are all the things to look out for when picking innkeepers for your small property.
If you feel like your innkeeper candidate has passed the selection criteria the next step would be to get them in for a day or two and take them through all processes and operations to make sure they are capable.
Sometimes it’s useful to have the innkeeper to stay at your property as a guest so they can experience your unique offering and see for themselves exactly how you run your property.
It also never hurts to have an easy to use reservation system that innkeepers can learn how to use in a flash. This way you can avoid errors and double bookings from occurring and the system can handle most of the admin tasks.
