Eusbett Hotel builds three storey conference centre

The

management of Eusbett Hotel is constructing a one-stop conference centre, the

first of its kind in any hotel in the nation.

The

three storey facility has seven meeting rooms with capacities ranging from 20

to 1,800. The centre also has syndicate rooms, board rooms for corporate board

meetings, a large restaurant, a larger laundry and a water processing and bottling

plant.

This

was announced by the Managing Director of the hotel, Mr Sam Bennet during the hotel’s

staff dinner and awards night in Sunyani

Mr

Bennet noted that the hotel is also putting up a new accommodation facility for

its employees. This structure would be commissioned in February, 2013. He also

said he has started a special scheme dubbed “The MD’s Special Award”. Under

this scheme, the MD gives plots of land to hard working, loyal and dedicated

staffs. In 2012, two employees, Kwame Ansu and Newell

Azumah, benefited from the scheme.

He

therefore urged all staff to redouble their efforts and be in a position for

this award. Apart from the MD special award, the hotel has the quarterly

“Employee of the Quarter” awards introduced in 2012. The MD said all these

efforts are geared towards building a very loyal, dedicated and motivated team

capable of lifting Eusbett Hotel to the very top in the hospitality industry in

Ghana.

General Manager of the hotel, Mr Robert Mensah, pointed out that the Hotel has

gradually been positioned as one of the leading hotels for workshops, seminars

and conferences.

He

said in the past year, the hotel hosted a great number of high profile meetings

including some international conferences.

In

so doing, the hotel has helped open the Brong-Ahafo region to people outside

the region who may have never visited the region but for a meeting at Eusbett

hotel.

Mr

Mensah noted that because of Eusbett Hotel, the peaceful and beautiful city of

Sunyani is now being referred to by many as the “conference destination of

Ghana”.

Over

the years, it has been the vision of the management of Eusbett Hotel to

transform the Hotel into a well-integrated corporate establishment.

A

couple of years ago, it established a water processing and bottling plant to

produce Eusbett branded bottled water for in-house use.

In

2012, this vision was carried a step further with the addition of a poultry

farm to the existing cattle ranch.

This

year, management plans to add a vegetable farm to its existing sources of

supply.

This

way, the hotel is able to control the standards and quality of the sources of

our inputs and supply, making use of professional and expert agriculturalist.

This

also helps to reduce the cost of operations and subsequently offer competitive

prices to our clients.

Mr.

Mensah gave assurance that in 2013, Eusbett Hotel is well positioned to

continue its leadership in the hospitality in the Brong-Ahafo and be highly

competitive amongst the leading hotels in the nation.
