Mitre Linen has stressed the importance of celebrating staff excellence and the crucial role housekeepers play in the success of a boutique hotel, as the company completed its fourth year of sponsorship of the Boutique Hotelier Personal Service Star Awards.
The company, which sponsored the Housekeeping Manager of the Year category won by Praxeda Kassami at The Cavendish, said that awards like this are ‘integral’ to the industry and was keen to recognise and reward individuals within the sector at the awards held on October 17 at London’s Hilton Olympia.
Keith Porter from Mitre Linen said: “Mitre Linen is honoured to sponsor the Housekeeping Manager of the Year award for the fourth consecutive year. As a company at the heart of the hospitality industry, we know how integral awards like this are.
“Housekeepers are an essential part of any successful boutique hotel and we are delighted that Praxeda has won this prestigious award.
“Once again, the standards were extremely high and the five finalists from across the country who made this year’s shortlist were exceptional.”
The Awards, which saw 11 categories won by outstanding employees from the likes of Mullion Cove Hotel, Harbour Hotel Christchurch, Georgian House Hotel and The Devonshire Arms, brought together the crème da le crème of the sector on 17 October, the first evening of the Independent Hotel Show.
“From country house hotels to boutique establishments in the city, it just goes to show the level of staff excellence that we have in this country and how important the role of the Housekeeper is to the success of a hotel,” adds Porter.
