Insights and tips on how to protect your inn or bed & breakfast, giving you and your guests peace of mind.
‘Tis the season of romantic getaways and Galentines retreats at your inn. While it’s easy to get wrapped up in the chocolate hearts, dozens of roses and the dim glow of candles, keep in mind that hazards do not take a day off.
Building and construction projects are complicated with no shortage of things that can go wrong. Builders risk insurance, also sometimes referred to as course of construction insurance, is extremely important if your inn is under construction.
Revenge travel has been at the forefront of many travelers’ minds—booking trips far ahead into the future and focusing more on experiences rather than physical items. Being aware of the hospitality business trends for 2023 can help bed and breakfast owners successfully meet their challenges and find growth opportunities.
Imagine booking a guest with manners and characteristics of a gigantic-furred yeti. It’s exactly what claims professionals fear most; the abominable snowman creature aimlessly wandering about with no clear objective and little consideration for the care of your inn.
Keeping outdoor walking surfaces clear of ice in the winter is a crucial practice at many inns. Not only does ice removal offer aesthetic benefits, but it can also help keep you, your coworkers and your guests protected from the risk of slips and trips on-site.
Frozen water pipes can be a major concern for inns during cooler months. Pipes that are exposed to extreme cold can burst when water expands; this includes outdoor hose bibs, water sprinkler lines and water supply pipes in basements, attics and garages. That’s why it’s essential that your bed and breakfast’s pipes are adequately protected when temperatures drop.
Nature is unpredictable, so don’t wait to prepare your inn for the harshest season. Fortunately, simple inspections and improvements to your bed and breakfast property can prevent costly winter-related insurance claims.
To combat the risk of fire or inhalation of dangerous carbon monoxide (CO) gas, it’s important for you to make chimney care part of your inn’s maintenance plan. Performing simple safety practices and maintenance on your fireplace can help keep it in good condition, ensuring your guests and property stay safe.
All feedback, whether positive, constructive or negative, is beneficial. Reviews provide you with a better idea of what guests enjoyed versus what needs improvement. When navigating the world of reviews for your business, keep these tips in mind.
