  • How hotels can get more direct bookings – and rely on travel agencies less

    Hotel booking websites, including the likes of Expedia, Hotels.com, Trivago and others, have been in the news recently regarding misleading advertising claims, hidden costs and their sales techniques. In total, six websites have been given until September to change how they operate, thanks to action from the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA).

     

    At the same time, there’s a sense in the industry that the balance of power has tilted in recent months away from online travel agencies, and in favour of direct bookings for hotels, B&Bs and self-catering holiday accommodation.

  • Outlook for the UK's hotel sector in 2019

    While last year showed strong trading, in 2018 slower economic growth has held things back, while up to five thousand new hotel rooms are potentially being launched in London alone, with another 4,300 set to open in the new year.

  • Should you install a spa in your hotel?

    Hotels of any size would do well to consider the benefits of adding a spa, for greater customer enjoyment and satisfaction. It's increasingly the case that hotel guests expect a variety of leisure facilities when they book a room, even if they're only staying the one night.
