    HOUT BAY MANOR SERVICE

    Four of us were out with Mr West at the Hout Bay Manor. The function was a surprise 70th birthday. We walked into this beautiful hotel that looked like an old building yet had a strong youthful feeling and vibe both inside and out. The art deco decor of the lounge area was spectacular and gave the lounge an amazingly pleasant ambiance. The serenity of the hotel gives the guests a feeling of being at home. The Hout Bay Manor is a home away from home. The hotel is also very child friendly.
    The guests for the function started arriving around 17:30, and our service immediately began with a formal greeting, welcoming, walking to the venue and serving.
    2 ½ weeks into butler training at the academy has definitely changed my life. I realise my whole personality of service has changed. The way I walk, the way I stand, my posture, the way I speak to the guest and staff of the hotel. Everything I do says, “I love service”. My service now speaks grace and announces pride to be a butler. The smile that lightens up my face is now absolutely genuine, as I provide service. The feeling of doing what I love and improving on it makes me feel good about myself. I wanted to provide the best service possible to the guests.
    Turn down time was at around 20:00. I went with the housekeeper for the turn down. Definitely the eye for attention to detail played a huge role here. I utilised what I’ve learnt at the academy. The hotel speaks so much of the South African culture. There type of rooms are called Zulu, Sotho, Xhosa, Sangoma, the wellness suite (spa) is called Inzolo. Bed time pamphlets are provided for the guest and a box of chocolate at turn down with a free minibar. That is what I call a delightful touch.
    I enjoyed every bit of the time spent at the Hout Bay Manor, not only for the wonderful place it is, the service we were able to provide, but mostly because I realise how much the SABA is teaching me and helping me discover so many new things about myself.
    Thank you Mr West.
