  • 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.

  • Outlook for the UK's hotel sector in 2019

    The PwC Hotels Forecast 2019 doesn’t make for comfortable reading, with growth set to be adversely affected by economic uncertainty, depressed business demand and the sector being flooded with new rooms.

     

    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.

     

    Over the last five years, the sector has already been expanded to the tune of approaching 40,000 rooms. Outside London, a similar number is set to launch over the remainder of this year and in 2019.

  • Could your hotel be performing better?

    Hotel room hairdryers may be coated in more bacteria than the room’s toilet seats, a survey of nine locations has shown.

     

    Kettles and light switches were also found to be unexpected offenders in the poor cleanliness league, the research showed. If these results can be generalised across the industry then there is an unacceptable risk of spreading colds or viruses that cause diarrhoea, one leading microbiologist explained.

     

    With this in mind, visitors are advised to look for tell-tale signs of poor maintenance, such as clogged shower drains and dirty drinking glasses, and ask for extra cleaning or a room change as they prefer. Continue reading
