The majority of my hotel visits are business related either as a guest or when I am meeting clients. When I visit a hotel I am looking for it to be of a certain standard. It has to be clean, the facilities need to be modern and the decor attractive. The beds have to be comfy and the noise levels kept to a minimum. As a consumer I don’t think this is too much to ask whether you prefer the grandeur of a five star or a more basic two star.
When I walk into my room for the first time I evaluate it. Is the bathroom clean? Is there any mould? What are the skirting boards and wallpaper like? Does the TV work? And so on….
Regardless of whether you are buying your first hotel or you are an experienced hotelier it is imperative that you get this right, the customer experience is paramount.
Hotels have the obvious operating costs such as staffing, stock, laundry etc however if new technology is needed such as booking software or new equipment for the exterior or the kitchens it can be a huge cost. If you are looking to refit the whole hotel the cost can run into the hundreds of thousands.
