Private Household training – testimonials

“The housekeeper course was a thorough introduction to the basic and essential skills of a housekeeper and butler. The domestic staff training course delivery was relaxed and friendly and no prior knowledge was needed. This made the learning process easier and less scary. There was plenty of time to ask questions. I always got a useful response even to trivial questions. The most valuable parts of the course were the opportunity to learn from domestic staff experts. They had worked to the highest standard and in V VIP households. We got to learn the secrets of the trade that would not be found in a book.  We would recommend this course to anyone wanting to go into domestic service for the first time. It is also suitable for experienced staff. “

There is no other domestic staff/butler and housekeeper training program quite like The Bespoke Bureau’s.  I was so happy to find one company that could organize all the training I needed:

  • Service.
  • Management.
  • Housekeeping.
  • Etiquette.
  • Wine Knowledge.

Having opted for bespoke training I found the one-on-one attention invaluable for me as I had the tutors’ full attention at all times. I could focus on the subjects I needed to work on. I was very satisfied with the way the training was carried out. I left The Bespoke Bureau Butler Training with a boost to my confidence and great motivation.

Thank you

After my training I have the knowledge, tools and confidence to run the interior of a large yacht or a VIP household.  I also have a new understanding of how to carry myself at interviews and in social situations. This I believe is something I will benefit from for the rest of my life. The tutors were so welcoming and helpful. It was a great privilege for me to get to spend time with them and take advantage of their vast experience and knowledge.I would like to extend a big thank you to everyone at The Bespoke Bureau Butler Training and I would be more than happy to recommend them to anyone looking to improve their skills as a housekeeper or Butler.VIP Private Household Client trainee, 2014


We have long been of the view that the success of any yacht– charter or private – ultimately depends on the quality of the crew. We have identified a need for advanced training of our service staff that is of an unusually high standard. We needed a variety of training resources ranging from:

  • finishing schools.
  • consultancy.
  • silver service training.
  • yacht training.
  • interior training.
  • wine and champagne service.
  • Russian service.
  • VIP housekeeping.

Bespoke Bureau carried out a range of domestic staff training courses for us. They were ranging from advanced laundry and interior cleaning / fabric care, to etiquette and service tuition for all yacht staff. We found the services offered by Bespoke Bureau to be a complete success with our clients. In some cases immediately appreciated by our private owners. We now offer Bespoke’s training to all our clients as a matter of course. We wholeheartedly endorse The bespoke Bureau.
