The jam-packed August edition of Boutique Hotelier magazine is now available to view online, and is full of exclusive interviews, industry insights and top tips to help you maximise your business growth.
This month’s issue features the man at the helm of operations at Raymond Blanc’s Oxfordshire spectacular, Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons. General manager, Philip Newman-Hall explains why the Independent Hotel Show in October is a firm date in his diary.
Boutique Hotelier takes a trip to the seaside to visit the picturesque Dorset town of Lyme Regis to chat to world-renowned hotelier Kathryn Haskins, who has recently taken over the family business, The Alexandra Hotel. She explains what inspiration she took from the London boutique scene and luxury lodges in Africa to build her successful business in the south west.
Six pages in the August issue are dedicated to education, and give an insight into some of the best international hotel schools that are proving popular across the globe. We highlight how each one is harnessing some fantastic new talent in the sector.
We also delve a little deeper into the Edinburgh hotel market to discover exactly how establishments in the area will profit from this summer’s sporting events and corporate bookings.
Eco-friendly practises are still a hot topic in the industry and keeping things green in the kitchen is becoming more important to guests. With food and catering representing a huge revenue opportunity for boutique hoteliers, we notice how few hotels are still reluctant to take on energy efficient changes, but highlight ways to make the switchover cost-effective and beneficial to both hotelier and guest.
This month’s issue also looks at the debate surrounding pay-per-click advertising and shows readers how to create the perfect campaign to conquer Google Adwords. Continuing on the topic of optimising the use of online tools, we focus on technology and round-up some of the best products currently on the market.
