    Online bookings

    its people continuing to shop around - book something then see something cheaper What is also becoming a phenomenon is people book somewhere with say 48 hours free cancellation - then wait till 60 hours to go, look online to see if places with rooms have dropped their prices then cancel and...

    "What's the password?"

    try to leave it open? drives me full time nuts - we have a closer on front and back but it doesn't quite pull it onto the yale as otherwise the door slams -I mean seriously who in a decent sized town or above leaves their doors open?

    Where To Find A Great Business Plan and Timeline?

    Also depends a lot on your area ie in a large city you could probably buy a bed same say - very much out in the country you get it when they deliver there.

    Some people just don't read their emails

    we get this all the time - we have a ton of restaurants here so lulls them into a false sense of security no matter what I do - so they don't book, not realising they are competing with a local community which eats out A LOT as well as the other 3,000 people coming for the conference, event, new...

    Stealing or guests to take?

    PO's used to fill one from another - I personally see that as complete false economy ie paying the chamber maid to do so costs more money than buying more. I also agree its not hygienic - we use a refill hand wash and moisturiser which are refilled from a large bottle size ie 5 litre but the...

    "We love your website!"

    Or what one of the B&B coaches recommendes is write a guide to "your town" best places to see, eat etc and do it as a subscribe to our mailing list to receive it - is a 241 as people subscribe to get it and then are sold on the area by it.

    Chutzpah!

    my policy is the same - except if they want to add an extra night - I will do that like a flash as it means I don't have to pay commission on it!

    Bad TA review as no discount was given

    its always parts - no matter what breaks, they never have it in stock or if it is more than 2 minutes old they have stopped making it, or its imperil only and they only have metric and so on. Nightmare - I have total respect for those of you who have hot tubs, jet tubs and pools - I know how...

    The stupid GPS maps idea of how to get to my home

    We have this - put in our postcode and often it brings up the street which is the way into the car park, but because they don't know that they then fight the GPS to make it pull them up at the front. Now we are trying to message every guest the night before they come saying the best postcode to...

    More Air bn b news from meeting planners

    I have no objection to using Air - they as customers seem to have more idea about what they are booking and are strongly encouraged by air to communicate with the hosts about arrivals and ask sensible questions before booking - that's the kind of guests I want.

    Three reviews for the same room

    We had this with book - got them to change it to Private external bathroom - didn't have a problem after that. People translate private to ensuite - its an industry term not one the public uses.

    Love my new surveillance camera

    I'm in the UK - you have to put signs up saying please be aware that you are on recorded camera - you don't have to put signs up if you are not recording. For example if a guest wasn't happy they could legitimately leave without paying. However in the UK especially over parking areas especially...

    Someone Wrote A Response For Me

    we are literally the width of a street from a particular attraction if I had a pound for every person who says "I didn't realise you were this close" or "we read on your web site you were 8 meters away but we didn't believe it" - so even the ones that read aren't immune!

    Thank you Hilbilly

    if you are ever going anywhere (sounds a bit convoluted) you can always post here and people in that area will get in touch.
