People are more than satisfied with the Relief Management Services we provide:

Your hosts

Your Hosts - Graeme & Lucille

When you first look for relief managers who, let's face it, you are going to put into a position of trust, you don't always have the luxury of using someone whom you already know or have already had previous satisfactory dealings with.

We are able to offer a range of services and we would be pleased to talk to you more about your requirements and how we can help.

Experienced Onsite Management Property Managers can give you the peace of mind you need to properly enjoy your breaks away.

Castle Motor Lodge

Testimonials from our very satisfied customers:

Castle Motor Lodge Motel:


We are the joint leasehold owners of a busy 32 room motel with a bar and restaurant in Bowen Queensland. It is quite difficult to take a break from this business as the workload is significant given the Restaurant opens at 6 pm, 6 nights per week, and we provide cooked breakfasts [ by the Managers ] for our guests 7 days per week. The work load is demanding, as there is also the day to day running of the motel and the hours are long. It is difficult to find relievers who are willing to take this on and importantly are capable of doing it.

In the aftermath of cyclone Debbie we needed a break and were lucky enough to find Graeme and Lucille. They agreed to take it on for 3 weeks, at a time when our occupancy was high and the early cooked breakfasts were many. We cannot speak more highly of them. They ran the office professionally, feedback from our regular guests was very positive and our staff were highly complimentary. In addition they were prepared to personally cook early morning breakfasts for our guests at 5 am.

The ultimate question every owner asks themselves is "would we have our relieving Managers back". In the case of Graeme and Lucille the answer is a very definite yes.

The accommodation industry can be very demanding and it is not everybody that can just step into your shoes and offer a service comparable with your own.

Our goals are to deliver hospitality relief services in a professional and courteous manner, giving you the confidence that your business is in capable hands and thus allowing you to fully relax whilst away on holiday without worrying about a thing.

This is why we have listed here some of our original and more recent appointments - you are most welcome to contact any or all of them.

Aynsley Bed & Breakfast:


Graeme and Lucille Simpson were recommended by a colleague, and came to us from their Queenstown Bed and Breakfast in New Zealand to look after our "Aynsley" Bed and Breakfast in Paddington, Brisbane Australia ...... in Sept / Oct 2006, whist we were in Europe. They were here 5 weeks, during a particularly busy season with high occupancy, and coped well.
From our guests we had many compliments of Lucille's welcome, friendliness and lovely breakfasts ............. and Graeme kept the computer bookings up to date. A good team! ............. and we hope they will have time to come back.

The Eyrie Escape:


We are delighted to recommend Graeme and Lucille as outstanding locum's for the hosted accommodation industry. They have run our 5 star B&B for short and long periods, whilst looking after our Labrador and 32 acre property with personal care and attention to detail. We returned each time to happy guests, a spotless house, a well kept garden and even all the kitchen utensils were in their usual place.
This couple are a great complement to each other with their skills, go out of their way to provide service, and where asked, give useful tips for improvements to be made.
