Debbie Goveia

Debbie started my career in the hospitality industry at an early age, as a Grade 11 high school student working weekends at the legendary Landdrost Hotel, in Johannesburg. After matriculating in 1982, she joined Holiday Inns as an In-House Hotel Management Trainee, graduating 3 years later. She has since then been connected to this marvelous industry in one way or another, with the past eight years as a grading assessor for the TGCSA. Apart from international travel to South America, Mauritius and Europe, her regular travels take her far and wide across the Western and Northern Cape regions. Her core business is assessing properties for a star rating in all the category bands, but the most rewarding aspect of all, would be the wonderful relationships forged over the years with the many property owners and managers, with whom she has had the absolute pleasure to meet and work alongside to achieve the standard of accommodation we would be proud to present to our visitors.
