B & B Know-How: How to make money from your spare room
No one knows more about starting and running a bed and breakfast business than successful cook, author and hotel owner Amy Willcock. The hotel that she runs with her husband and their business partner, The George on the Isle of Wight, was described in the Daily Mail as being run 'in the way in which you imagine the hotel of your dreams to be run'. In this attractively packaged paperback, Amy reveals the secrets you need to know to make running your B&B fun and profitable. Her lively narrative takes you through all stages of the process: preparing your home, advertising, creating welcoming bedrooms and luxury bathrooms on a budget, laundering the sheets, preparing the ultimate breakfast (for even the most demanding guest) and managing bookings - all this, while keeping your profit margin healthy. Also featured are the best stockists for any products that you will need and the definitive answers to frequently asked questions. This book is the perfect guide for all aspiring B&B landlords and ladies.
