Housekeeping Awards

14 January 2010

Entries are now open for the Federation's new housekeeping award. Housekeeping is a very important role in tourism. Housekeeping staff ensure that guests have a great stay and come away with a positive view of our accommodation products. One of the key objectives of this competition will be to highlight this role, recognising the excellent work that housekeeping staff perform every day.

It is a team competition with two people on each team and is designed to be fun and educational. There are no written tests and no interviews!

The competition has been kindly sponsored by Bunzl, Ecolab and Northern Ireland Tourist Board. Assessment will take place on Tuesday 23rd February in the Wellington Park Hotel, Belfast.

Assessment will include normal housekeeping duties including bed making, tea trays, final inspections, spillages and hazardous substances. There will also be a short presentation from the Northern Ireland Tourist Board.

Forms have been sent out to all NIHF Member hotels and guesthouses. If more are required, please Nicola on
