Behind the scenes exposed for Boutique Lodge near Hobart

Running a Luxury Hotel is not a walk in the park.

I have been, and continue to be, an avid fan of The Duchess of Duke Street  and  Upstairs,Downstairs  and Pride & Prejudice  and  Country House Party  and  now, of course, Downton Abbey.  Yes, I am a 'tragic'!

But I am also a realist, and so Fawlty Towers is Hospitality Training 101 for all staff.

I often say that running Woodbridge is a bit of a mix of all of the above, hopefully less of the later, although we do have our moments!

Our Blog is a glimpse behind the scenes of the day to day runnng of Woodbridge.
