What our customers say
“We found the AA Restaurant Academy to be superb in re-invigorating both our Chefs and Front of House teams, the content is designed to cover an array of topics from tastings to product knowledge and service and hospitality. It has assisted us in improving the industry awareness in our teams and is a fantastic tool to use to promote the drive on standards of service, enabling us to build on our current AA Rosette status. A thoroughly enjoyable, fun and enlightening course.” – Ken Younie, Catering Executive, Warner Leisure Hotels
“The Principal Hayley Group recognises that our housekeepers are the team behind the scenes on whom we rely to keep our fantastic properties in great shape. We enlisted the help of our account manager from the AA to help us energise and re-focus all our housekeepers on standards of service for 2011. I am happy to say that without exception we achieved our aim!
Our account manager showed great insight and quickly established a rapport with the housekeepers, her expertise and knowledge of the subject ensured even the most seasoned housekeeper left with lots of new ideas on how to further improve cleaning and service standards.” - Joyce Webb, Group Training Manager, Principal Hayley Hotels and Conference Venues
