I owned my own very successful motel business in Christchurch for 6 years. I have been minding for various businesses around the city for the last 3 years. I am happy to consider minding on a regular basis for a few hours a week or for a week or more as required so that hard working moteliers can take a break and know their precious business is in good hands.

We are losing our current excellent Motel Managers due to unforeseen health reasons.

Ideally, we are seeking experienced Motel Owners/Managers who can achieve goals, go above and beyond to assist guests, have an eye for detail, can lead staff and can treat this business like their own.

This position is a live-in role, and you will be taken on as Contractor(s).

Remuneration to be discussed, the package includes comfortable two-bedroom, manager's apartment (with lake views!) and includes all outgoings (sky, gas, power & telephone)

As the owners do not live locally, we entrust our business to a couple to take the reins. We will have regular meetings to discuss the business and plan ahead as a team.

Our current Managers have worked hard to achieve an increase in occupancy and revenue, but there is still plenty of work to be done, we are seeking a couple who can continue to provide a top-class service to guests and owners.

We will require new Managers asap.

Interested applicants can be supplied with a full job description.
If you feel you are who we are looking for, please send us your CV and a cover letter to Mark Johnson at stay@chevron-motel.co.nz

Are looking for a short break? Or just a few days here and there?

Based in Palmerston North I have over 18 years of experience in the Hospitality and Tourism industry.

Graduating back in 2002 from the Pacific International Hotel Management School in New Plymouth, I have spent numerous years in the hospitality sector from Rooms Division to being a Chef.

I relocated back to Palmerston North from the Bay of Plenty where my husband and I were managing motels to take over as the Rooms Division Manager for Distinction Hotels, however since Covid-19 I was been made redundant.

For Palmerston North and near by I am happy to offer half day rates and daily rates.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch for your minding needs. I'm also happy to meet with you.

Julia and Murray are experienced Motel Minders / Temporary Managers.

Having owned and operated a 14 unit Motel ourselves for many years we are now keen & available to provide minding or temporary management services to other motels.

Together we were fully hands-on and involved in all aspects of the Motel operation from guest services, reservations, payments, etc. to property management: from cleaning and servicing units to laundry, gardening, lawn mowing and pool & spa maintenance. Working closely with the housekeeping staff we ensure that presentation for guests is kept at the highest quality.

Since late 2018 we have undertaken various Motel minding/temporary management contracts completing all tasks of running the business. Our recent assignments have included a 23 unit Motel in Auckland, a 14 unit Motel in the Waikato and an 18 unit Motel in New Plymouth.

We are active, computer literate and quick to learn. Our experience includes use of MotelMate, Callista, Aurelian and Starfleet together with various channel management systems. Willing to take on any work required we pride ourselves on a high standard of guest service and Unit cleanliness.

Available for additional opportunities and challenges to assist you where possible (sorry, but due to the risk of lockdowns, we will only travel to North Island locations).

Please contact us anytime via email murrayfurness@outlook.co.nz
or phone: Julia 021 172 4605 or Murray 027 291 0222 for a friendly discussion.

Our names are Shelagh and Ross Laird, we are based in the Central North Island. We have had over 12 years working in the Motel, Holiday Park and Tourism industry between us. It is a lifestyle and a job that we enjoy very much, we also enjoy travelling around New Zealand so we decided to combine the two by minding Motels and Holiday Parks while the owners go on much deserved breaks.

So far we have used Seekom, Callista, Aurelian, Strait Reservation, Reservation Master, Motel Mate and Park Mate booking systems and are very familiar with Kiwi card and Kiwi Parks, we are also very able to learn any other systems.

If required we have our own accommodation being a bus or a caravan depending on the motel /park and location. We are willing to assist staff with cleaning, maintenance, lawn mowing and many other tasks while you are away, Ross has his HT and Passenger licence, he has also worked with a lot of heavy machinery. We like to get stuck in and help around the accommodation as much as possible. We normally arrive the day before you leave - first day we arrive and set up, we go over the running of the motel/park with you, day two we are ready to work on our own. When you arrive back, we carry out hand over and discuss anything with you that we need to.

We have a facebook page Rollin Holiday Park Minders NZ. We are both computer literate and we learn systems very quickly. We pride ourselves with good customer service and we also take great pride in the work we do.

If you would like to discuss anything further with us you can contact us via the email above or by phoning 0275581771. As references you can phone Paul and Mandy at King’s Court Motel at Wanganui pH 06 345 8586 or Shelly and Julian at Opunake Beach Kiwi Holiday Park pH 06 761 7525.
