The scope of Housekeeping responsibility in an accommodation venue extends further than just cleaning guest rooms. The aim is to give every guest a special service, making sure they feel comfortable, that all wants and needs are met and to assist them in whatever way possible during their stay. This course will assist you in being an effective service provider in the hospitality and accommodation industry.
