5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for all Budding Hoteliers
This book is really interesting and goes deep into the detail you need to think about before entering the hospitality business - whether your business is a tiny B & B or a Country House Hotel. Goes through all relevant Regulations, too, which could be necessary to know prior to Architects getting involved. A thoroughly enjoyable and informative read and is highly...

1.0 out of 5 stars A fawlty guide
Apart from its total concentration on the UK (half the book is just references to UK rules and practices) this is a case of the one-eyed man in the land of the blind. The author talks as if potential hoteliers are complete morons. His advice is, for the most part, just common sense and not backed up by any special professional insights. It claims to be updated but, apart...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for all Budding Hoteliers, 21 April 2011
This review is from: Buying and Running a Small Hotel: The Complete Guide to Setting Up and Managing Your Own Hotel, Guest House or B & B (Paperback)
This book is really interesting and goes deep into the detail you need to think about before entering the hospitality business - whether your business is a tiny B & B or a Country House Hotel. Goes through all relevant Regulations, too, which could be necessary to know prior to Architects getting involved. A thoroughly enjoyable and informative read and is highly recommended - otherwise you may just end up like Basil!

Apart from its total concentration on the UK (half the book is just references to UK rules and practices) this is a case of the one-eyed man in the land of the blind. The author talks as if potential hoteliers are complete morons. His advice is, for the most part, just common sense and not backed up by any special professional insights. It claims to be updated but, apart from a few pages on how to construct a basic website, it ignores the internet, the most powerful business vehicle for hotels. Worst is that fact that the business strategy advice is amateur, and dotted throughout the rambling text. Very poor. The author should read 'How to write a "how to" book'.
