22 Sleeps til’ Christmas!
Can you believe there are only 22 sleeps til’ Christmas?
While we were getting ourselves ready, we had some ideas on how we can help you prepare your accommodation service for the Christmas break.
Go above and beyond
This time of year is all about spreading Christmas cheer, and giving, so why not go above and beyond to impress your guests. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune, but a simple turn down gift for long stays will really make a difference.
If you are an Airbnb host, stocking your pad with Christmas essentials like fruit mince pies, Christmas crackers, Christmas pudding or sweets is a great idea that will really surprise, and impress your guests. It might even result in another booking for the same time next year!
It’s the silly season – so be prepared
Please keep in mind that freight companies are under a lot of pressure at this time of year, so the rush can cause some delays with deliveries. The last thing you want is to run out of hotel supplies during the holidays, what a nightmare!
Therefore, to ensure you don’t miss out on your delivery, we recommend placing your orders NOW, especially for linen and towelling, which is in super high demand at this time of year. It’s important to be prepared for everything, so check your supplies and stock up on everything from spare toothbrushes to pool towels, to mozzie repellent, and even the not-so-sexy, but very practical feminine hygiene products.
Before your guests arrive double check that your holiday house, resort, hotel/motel room is spic and span and up to the standard you’d expect if you were on holiday. Ensure your glassware and cutlery gets a good soak and clean, and spring-clean your dining areas, kitchen, bathrooms and toilets. There’s nothing worse than arriving at a property that is messy or dirty!
Please remember! Last orders for 2017 will need to be made by Thursday 21 December for delivery between Christmas and New Year.
