Taking on a Pub with Letting Rooms can be very fruitful especially if you are in an area where tourism is a factor. There is something very personal about choosing an Inn for your dwelling opposed to a faceless hotel. Customers want that level of intimacy, the quirky alternatives and the cozy homely rooms. That element of the business is where you will really need to focus your energy, making a pub a place to not only visit but a place you don’t want to leave.
The right operator will understand that service, attention to detail and internal standards (especially cleanliness) applied to this style of operation could make or break the pub. Operators of these sites need to be committed to providing hospitality in sometimes inhospitable hours. Late check ins, early starts will often become part of your day to day, but repeat visitors can quite easily become friends for life.
Price accordingly be full at the right price not empty at the wrong price.
