The idea of refurbishing hotels isn’t new. Many chains and small operations do it on a regular basis. But what are the real benefits of giving your hotel a facelift and is it worth that big investment?
We take a closer look at the benefits of hotel renovations:
- Improving Your Hotel Appearance
Of course, the major reason for undertaking a refurbishment is to improve the appearance of the hotel. This can include a variety of cosmetic features including the outer façade as well as the layout of the rooms. You might want to install better technology for your customers or add something like a spa to attract a different type of clientele.
You may have space around the hotel that can be used to add an extension or perhaps you want to create a large suite for wedding parties that has a magnificent view of the surrounding countryside.
Most hotels are in direct competition with others in the local area and a refurbishment can really help you stand out from the crowd. People are a lot choosier than they used to be when picking a hotel or other accommodation and they really want value for money. Undertaking a refurbishment can help your hotel business achieve that.
- Cutting the Future Cost of Maintenance
A refurbishment is a bit like creating a new building out of an old one. That means the infrastructure is improved which could well lead to lower maintenance costs in the long term. Older properties are less cost effective to run especially if you have a large hotel with plenty of rooms.
- Boosting Energy Efficiency
Another effect of undertaking a refurbishment is that it gives you the chance to improve energy efficiency which can also improve that bottom line. You can sort out the insulation, put in energy saving boilers and even opt for solar panels to give your property a modern edge and lower fuel costs.
