Hello and Welcome to Hospitality Property School.

If you are the owner or manager of an independent hotel, resort, inn or bed & breakfast and have asked yourself any of these questions:

  • “How can I get more guests?”
  •  “How can I organize my business so I don’t have to be onsite 24/7?”
  • “How can I find and keep the right employees?”
  •  “How does my hospitality property compare to my competition?

Then the Hospitality Property School is the right place for you.

Have you ever thought of opening your own bed & breakfast?

Do you know what is required to operate a bed & breakfast?

In this edition, I am going to look what you should do to start your own bed and breakfast.

  

Welcome to another edition of Hospitality Property School.

I am your instructor, Gerry MacPherson.

 

Does this sound like you?

“I have a nice house, live in a lovely location and I am interested in making extra money. I should open the Bed & Breakfast.”

 

If so, you’re not alone. It is possible to find bed and breakfasts in almost every corner of the world.

 

But where do you start?

Before you start you should ask yourself a few questions.

 

Is my home really in a suitable location?

 

What makes my home unique or captivating?

 

Is my family ready to have strangers stay in our house?

 

To do this, you have to be objective and look at it from the travellers or tourist’s perspective. Ask friends and family for their opinions.

 

Do I have the money needed?

Will there be renovations required in your home to make sure the operation works well for you, your family and your guests?

Are the rooms going to be theme designed or with a certain furniture style?

You might need new or more furnishings?

 

Do I have the time and skills needed?

A good idea to talk with other bed and breakfast owners or experts in the hospitality industry to get a feel of what is undertaking might entail.
