How to write a CV for an admin post?

I have very basic experience in admin, but this job didn't say it was specifically looking for experience. I do have retail experience, in which I did do some admin work. I would just really like to know how I would write a covering letter and CV for an admin job. The job is Reservations Agent in a hotel.

A CV is just a list of the qualifications you have (the Grades are ESSENTIAL, no matter how bad some people may think they are) and ALL the jobs you have EVER had. In your covering letter you highlight parts of your current and/or previous jobs that are relevant to the job you are applying for.
