Product Description

Twenty-two years ago, author Peter Venison's Hotel Management became a best seller in the hotel and tourism industry, labeled a "must read" on the curriculum of every hotel school, and landed on the bookshelf of every hotel manager. Despite many requests for a follow-up volume, Venison declined, on the basis that he had nothing new to say. Now he does.Holed up for several weeks in five star hotels while concluding a complicated business deal, Venison realized that the standards offered by the industry still fall short of perfection. As a result, he has put pen to paper to produce this handy catalogue of suggestions to hoteliers, based upon his considerable personal experience as a hotelier and perpetual hotel guest.100 Tips for Hoteliers guides you from the inception of a hotel to its opening and operation, offering practical tips for each stage of the journey. It should prove equally useful to hotel school students as a checklist of what they can expect, and also to practicing hotel managers as a reminder of their responsibilities.Proceeds from the sale of 100 Tips for Hoteliers will be donated to the Duke of Edinburgh Cup charity.

5Worth reading several times
By Martin Frank
Peter Venison knows what he is writing about, and knows how to write well. His "100 Tips for Hoteliers" is easy to read and every page gives you ideas about what to do better in your own business, hospitality or not.

This is one of the few books on hotel or resort management which acknowledges that things can go wrong too. Peter Venison shows how to deal with endless rain or falling off bed legs and many more of the daily troubles reality puts in our plate. "101 Tips for Hoteliers" is far more to the point than the hospitality management classics written from the viewpoint of managers who avoid leaving their A/C offices. I recommend it to every new and every old hotel or resort manager.
