How are your bathrooms holding up?
Life can be pretty hectic when you’re running a self-catering accommodation business.
It’s sometimes surprising how quickly people’s expectations progress. Around a year ago, regular readers of the Out of Eden blog may recall our article talking about how luxurious bath robes and slippers were steadily becoming more of a common feature in hotel and B&B bathrooms, along with higher quality towels, as a reliable way of delivering a more luxurious guest experience and in turn helping to attract better reviews.
As an Out of Eden customer, we’d love to know what you think of our NEW company video. One customer recently said it was “refreshing to be reminded that there are businesses out there who do still put customer service first”. Have you seen the video? What do YOU think?
Over 6 million people in the UK plan to enjoy at least one night away from home this Easter. For those of us that’ll be welcoming guests over Easter, it’s quite a different story – the start of the UK tourism season! The big question is – are you stocked up?
So this is our timely reminder to make sure you’ve got all those little consumables ordered and in place to ensure your business operates like a well-oiled machine over the Easter break.
If you run a B&B, guest house or small hotel, or own a holiday cottage or self-catering accommodation then read our 5 top marketing tips for growing your profile and attracting new bookings.
In 2009 Out of Eden acquired the manufacturing line from Buckingham Soap Ltd, our UK soap manufacturer for many years, because we wanted to maintain a UK made product.
In 2010, the UKs leading soap manufacturing facility was re-located and re-launched by Out of Eden as The Cumbria Soap Company and as most hotel soaps are now made in China, we are proud to offer you UK made soap. We have been making all our own soaps here on our site in Cumbria ever since.
We continue to provide an unrivalled service to the hospitality industry and wholesalers with our fast production turnaround capability and exquisite soap quality. Our specialist production line is capable of manufacturing 60,000 tablets of soap per day, and a wide range of stylish wrappings are available. For a more exclusive product, our graphic designers can create bespoke packaging and even stamp your name and logo on the soap itself.
Fairtrade Fortnight runs from 27th February to 12th March 2017, and all of us here at Out of Eden would love as many of our customers as possible to join us in getting involved and helping to promote the benefits of this important cause.
What’s the first thing you do when you get in from a hard day’s work?
Put the kettle on? Flick through the post? Trip over the cat?
Attracting a good level of low season and shoulder season bookings is a major factor in achieving success in the hospitality industry. The ability to keep your accommodation occupied during these periods is key to achieving a healthy profit; and the answer is to apply some research, some creativity, and some legwork.
