Hello again everyone!
Our family have just celebrated 24 years of owning and operating Queenstown Motel Apartments. It is hard to believe we have been here so long. We have seen many changes over the years but the internet and smart phones have been the biggest difference in our business. I didn't know how to even send an email when we first bought the property and now just about everything is done on line (which we find is awesome because there is less room for human error).
Over the years we have built 18 lovely new rooms and upgraded our original alpha wing to provide great accommodation for people while they visit our beautiful town.
We have made many friends from all over the world and some of our guests have been staying with us since we first started Moteling here in Queenstown in 1979 when we were newly weds.
Our two children Vanessa and Hartley have been actively involved in our various accommodation businesses literally for all their lives and I am proud and pleased to say are now in the process of taking over the day to day operation of Queenstown Motel Apartments.
Pete and I will be around and about and helping where we can since we think we are too young to retire completely and wouldn't know what to do with all the spare time!
We all love our "work" and enjoy our motel life so I expect our family will continue to be here for many years.
Thank you for being part of our life journey, we wouldn't have lasted this long without you, our wonderful guests. We promise you our team will keep up the good work and we look forward to welcoming you when you are next visiting Queenstown.
My hint for this post :
Take a photo on your smartphone of the local area maps instead of using the paper copy, its very environmentally friendly.
