Last time I worked in the hospitality industry was when I was 18 and I spent a large amount of time each day washing dishes at the Sorento pub for very little money, no tips but lots of fun at the end of the night with my fellow live-in student workers. That’s another job replaced by technology!
My latest hospitality venture has proved more successful than I imagined. I expected a couple of weekends a month to be booked. Weekdays never. I got it so wrong.
My guests have been from all states except for WA and NT so far.
Visiting elderly parents
Elderly parents celebrating 50+ years of marriage
Contract workers in Tallangatta for a job for 3 – 5 days
Tourists taking the scenic routes from Canberra, Gippsland, South Coast NSW and Sydney.
Bike riders on the HCRT desperate for a bed (I lent my RV as my room was booked, as was every other bed in town was, this has happened twice!)
Wedding guests and so on…..
The best part of this whole exercise has been meeting such lovely, friendly people, many of whom go out of their way to say thank you and goodbye This side of the experience I did not expect but am very grateful for.
