Hotel Butler Training | The Butler is more than just an extra pair of arms

Posted on: August 27th, 2014 by Butler Academy No Comments

 The Butler commits himself/herself to the guest and cares to exceed their expectations and create extra- special moments. Exceptional service is only the starting point; we organise the guest’s stay in the most perfect way. We want them to spend their time in the resort as comfortable and as pleasurable as possible. A professional Butler pays great attention to detail. The Butler is an excellent organiser and knows, and follows, the accepted manners and customs, adhering to the right Etiquette and Protocol. The butler is always in the background, smoothing things over and is firm about the amount and quality of work done by those assisting him/her to provide a first class service to the guest. At the end of the day, a good butler must have the energy and humility to ask, “Was there anything else I could have improved on with my service today?”
