Are you leaving your guests in the dark…literally?

Are you leaving your guests in the dark…literally? Last week I had a ‘proud mummy moment’ when I watched my son graduate at Bristol University with a degree in Astro-Physics – don’t ask me what that means exactly but lets put it like this… he won’t be following his mum into hospitality 🙂 The reason […]

Stop with the ‘curtain twitching’ rate strategy…

Stop with the ‘curtain twitching’ rate strategy… So we have all seen them… you know… the curtain twitching neighbours who are more interested in what is happening in their neighbours living rooms than they are about how their own life is shaping up. But are some of us hoteliers just as bad?  Aren’t some of […]

Rinse & Repeat… Why you should have a Book Direct Strategy

Rinse & Repeat… Why you should have a Book Direct Strategy I feel that I often repeat myself when I speak to hotels about the why they should have not only a Book Direct strategy but a STRONG Book Direct strategy, but what often surprises me is that even with a mountain of enthusiasm during […]

Using Metrics that actually work

Using Metrics that actually work As a Revenue Manager I love, love, love metrics. Sad I know, but give me a spreadsheet with lots of wonderful formula and I am happy… However, in this fast-paced industry that we all know and love, we are currently inundated with all kinds of facts and figures.  But leaving […]

Before you look forward to 2017, look back…

Before you look forward to 2017, look back… Some new revenue systems are moving away from considering historical information at all… They look only at future internal and external influences but as I have mentioned in past blogs, I absolutely don’t agree with that thinking.  I believe that like all things in life, we have […]

AirBnB – the threat goes on…

AirBnB – the threat goes on… As hoteliers we might have been accused of being caught napping 8 years ag0 when AirBnB launched.  I can still hear the voices in our trade (mine included) who said, ‘this will never take on’ or ‘who wants to stay in someone else’s home when on a trip’… well […]
