After many years of owning, operating, buying, renovating and selling hotels and motels in both the UK and the USA, I thought that in my retirement I might try to help others to benefit from the property maintenance lessons that I have learned over the years, to possibly entertain you with stories of some of the weird and wonderful people that I have met along the way, and also to help relieve the boredom that I am sure will follow my decision to retire.
Owning and operating hotels has been something of a roller coaster ride, I have made lots of money, and lost almost a similar amount, but the ride was generally always enjoyable.
We often had a very limited budget with which to upgrade our facilities so that our customers would stay and be happy, so we learned a lot of short cuts and tricks along the way. We also know which improvements are worth making and which are not.
I hope this blog will bring you enjoyment and information and I will continue to update it on a regular basis. I also look forward to your feedback via the contact form on the site.
