  • Keeping Duvets and Pillows Clean for Your Guests

    For the hospitality industry, it has always been that reputations are painstakingly won – and often easily lost – by things as seemingly simple as basic cleanliness. But in the midst of a world in crisis from the spread of COVID-19, cleanliness has become far from simple.

     

    In 2020, and as businesses reopen for bookings, the commitment to scrupulous hygiene has to be front and centre in the minds of hosts and guests alike. We know that the virus is passed by droplets, and the particles within are more resistant than many forms of bacteria to washing and cleaning. Even maintaining social distancing, it’s possible for someone to pass, and contract, COVID-19 by just brushing against a contaminated surface. And that’s especially bad for hotels and guest houses.

  • What We Have Been Up To During Covid-19

    It's been a crazy few weeks. We have been badly affected like all in the hospitality industry because of COVID-19, with one of the largest remaining manufacturing facilities in the UK, we haven't been producing our normal amount of work due to lack of demand.

  • How to enjoy the restaurant experience at home

    We're over two weeks into 'lockdown life' here in the UK, and it's still unclear whether daily life will be back to normal in weeks or even months. COVID-19 is wreaking havoc on businesses and individuals around the world, and yet we Brits can't even pop to the pub or head out for a meal to take our minds off the stress and worry of the daily news. Here are five top tips for enjoying a posh dinner out (at home) without breaking quarantine. Warning: you will have to cook it yourself.

  • The war on plastic: How hotels can help the recycling cause

    The hospitality industry produces a whopping 2.87 million tonnes of plastic each year and most of it may have been unnecessarily sent to landfill.

  • 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.
