The latest edition of Boutique Hotelier is now live to view online, with industry great Danny Pecorelli gracing the cover for first issue of 2018.
The January issue of the sector bible features Pecorelli, managing director of Exclusive Hotels and Venues, as he chats to BH about the group’s challenges and stresses the importance of training and employee education and progression as we head into the new year.
Also in this edition we focus on kitchen design and give you all the advice and inspiration you need to create a first-class kitchen. With insights into the refurbishment at some of the country’s most exciting boutiques, we look at how to redesign a kitchen to maximise your space and what equipment you really need to be buying.
Douglas Waddell, operations director at iconic country house hotel brand Hand Picked Hotels reveals how business is faring for the 20-strong group in 2018 and what they will be doing to keep up with the changes in demand.
2018 really does seem to be the year of investment, as hoteliers up and down the country speak to BH about expansions, developments and upgrades on the agenda over the next 12 months. The likes of Andrew Stembridge from Iconic Luxury Hotels and Chris Ward from Farncombe Estate are among those featured.
For those hungry for advice, we look at how to create the right tone across all your communication tools, from social media to copywriting and notes left in-room, make sure it’s consistent and sends the right message to all your guests.
