Product Description

From the Author

Over 30 years continuous relevant experience in any profession ought to provide a wealth of knowledge and information not easily available elsewhere or by other means.
Since 1970 I've worked in the tourism industry, with various posts of responsibility, including that of Marketing Manager of the Northern Ireland Tourist Board. Throughout this entire period the B&B sector has been a significant part of my responsibilities and therefore a major interest and specialism. Hence my
involvement in this particular publication.

For many years there has been no fully comprehensive, single item of literature addressing all the facets and requirements of a B&B 'businesss'. Until now.

Starting & Running a B&B covers all the many and varied aspects you need to know about if you are planning to run a B&B. Whether it is setting up a business plan, using the internet, getting to grips with finanical issues and taxation, or understanding the legal structure and implications - it's all explained in straightforward, realistic terms. We have also covered such important issues like renovating and decorating a building to make it suitable for guest keeping; bookings and advance bookings; payment, including vouchers; record-keeping and banking; fire safety and First Aid, catering and liquour licences and even some new recipes. All the suggestions in Starting & Running a B&B have come from someone's own, first-hand experience 'in the field'. I hope this book will help you to enjoy your new, exciting and immensely rewarding venture. - Nigel Jess

In short, everything you need to know to make your B&B a truly special place to stay!
