Dominance Guardian Services has been affiliated with the Grand Hotel Mornington for the past three years. The Grand has been very please with Dominance and particularly Nick in that period. Nick and his business partners have always been reliable, easy to manage and available at any time, day or night to reach is a problem arose. The guards Nick provides are well trained and have superior knowledge of the hospitality Industry, the guards are also very adaptable to our work environment and are happy to listen and learn. The Grand takes particular pride in its appearance and we need our security guards to follow suit. Nick is always willing to come in for a chat at a moment’s notice and also attends the Mornington’s liquor accord with the hotel management.

I would say that in our short relationship with Dominance Guardian Services there has been an obvious decline in violent incidents in our night club and the general atmosphere in our sports bar is much friendlier, this has a lot to do with the security personnel not just being “bouncers’ but acting as Grand Hotel security staff and being part of the team. Dominance supples anywhere from one to twenty guards at a time to the Grand for normal service and special events at no stage have we had a concern that the required numbers could not be met.

On a personal note, Nick has provided me as assistant manager of The Grand Hotel with much insight into the hotel security field and has always been available for advice on issues such as numbers required, training tips, night club procedures and event ideas. I would not hesitate in recommending Dominance Guardian Services to anyone looking for a professional and well organised security organisation.

I have been using the security services of Dominance Guardian Services for the past 5 years.

In my business security is an integral part of my success. And in an environment which is a volatile and at times a hostile one, Dominance has always managed my security needs in a professional manner.

Their guards have the skills and knowledge to deal with a wide range of situations which are prevalent in the hospitality industry. Dominance guards have a non-aggressive approach, as well as a sound understanding of the liquor licensing laws which all assist in dealing with incidents effectively and efficiently.

I would no hesitation in recommending Dominance in any business which required security, in particular one that deals with large crowds, alcohol and a predominant demographic of 18-24yo.

The Doyle family has owned the Bridge Hotel for some 25 years and in that time we have developed and renovated the site in pursuit of excellence in the supply of food, beverage and gaming.

Dominance Guardian Services has been involved with the Bridge Hotel for more than 12 years. And as such we have built a solid relationship with them during this time.

Dominance has been instrumental in ensuring that ODPC remains compliant with Liquor Licensing Legislation and ensuring our door policies and procedures, particularly in the gaming room and bar are second to none.

Dominance delivers exceptional service and is proactive in understanding the needs of our Hotel. We have no hesitation in recommending them.

I am pleased to provide a reference for Nick Karas and show my approval for his security company Dominance Guardian Services. DGS has and still continues to manage the security contract at Club Kilsyth, now for 8 years as well as our venue at Club Ringwood for 3 years. The two clubs are located in the eastern suburbs with Kilsyth and Mountain District Basketball Association Inc. acting as licensees.

My first meeting with Nick was when we awarded his company the security contract. I expressed that what is important to myself and Club Kilsyth is honest communication and fast action when required. The hospitality industry is so reliant on its employees and we all know that from time to time things do go wrong. Whenever there has been an issue that required attention Nick’s willing ness to rectify issues has been outstanding. Nick’s “old school’ approach is centred around customer service, honesty and hard work.

I am pleased to recommend DGS to all owners and managers of licensed venues that may be considering employing Nick’s company to manage their security contact.

Open Door Pub Co Pty Ltd (ODPC) was established in July 2004 with the acquisition of 22 managed venues and 16 subleased venues from Lion Nathan Ltd. One of its acquisitions was the Mentone Hotel on Beach Rd in Mentone.

The venue is very popular for both food and beverage. Its nightclub operates two nights a week, Wednesday & Saturday.

The EDGY nightclub is a Melbourne Institution on Wednesday nights. The Mentone Hotel has been using Dominance Guardian Services in our venue for the last 8 years for us as the current owners and also the previous owners.

Customer Service, knowledge of legislation, a passive approach when dealing with conflict and confrontation is pivotal in this industry. Dominance delivers all of this.

The Mentone Hotel has adopted a house policy in the interest of harm minimisation to all patrons and staff. Dominance Guardian Services has been instrumental in organising this policy in conjunction with Hotel Management.

I have no hesitation in recommending Dominance Guardian Services.
