Guest ready popcorn and some great movie themed hotels

When it comes to crowd pleasers, movies have long been a serious money-spinner for a wide range of industries the world over.

Hotels play a big part in the industry too.

Whether it’s hosting guests attending premieres, providing accommodation for people heading to London for a special movie showcase, or just providing an up-to-the-minute movie selection for hotel guests on the in-room hotel entertainment system.

Hotels around the globe have adapted their interior styling, developed themes inspired by films. They host movie-based events to support film releases, or to make the most of their movie location roots.

At Hotel Supplies Ltd, we like to keep an eye on current hotel trends and quirky hotel ideas.

We’ve been having a look at some of the inspirational movie themed hotels around the world.

Even if you’re not planning movie themed redecoration for your hotel any time soon, they’re lots of fun.

The Eden motel in Taiwan boasts an incredible Batcave. Inspired by the caped crusader and featuring bats a plenty, film memorabilia and plenty of mat black and craggy grey. A hotel guest bedroom with the perfect accessories for Batman fans.

Even if movie-inspired theming is not on the cards for your hotel, but you’d like to encourage your hotel guests to curl up with an in-room movie, we can provide the popcorn (and our popcorn is something rather special).

Popcorn for Hotels

We’re delighted to now be supplying Joe & Seph’s gourmet popcorn. In a variety of formats and sizes, perfect for guest snacking, hotel minibars and hotel welcome packs, this delicious popcorn is a great movie accompaniment too. It’s available with caramel and sea salt via our website but we can also supply other varieties – and arrange for co-branded packs too. Find out more here.

Beat the chill with our guest friendly hotel supplies…

When there’s a nip in the air, the nights are drawing in and Autumn comes knocking, it’s the perfect time to review your customer offer. In particular it’s a good moment to consider the bathrobes, slippers and bedding which you provide in your hotel guest bedrooms and bathrooms, so that your guest will stay cosy and comfortable in your hotel, whatever the weather may throw at you.

At Hotel Supplies Ltd, we offer a great range of bathrobes, slippers and bedding for hotels.

As well as the classic cotton terry towelling bathrobe that is pretty much expected as standard by the contemporary traveller, we have plenty of other luxurious hotel bathrobes to choose from. Our cotton waffle bathrobe is ideal for hotel spa use, our microfibre bathrobe is perfect if drying is a challenge and if you have lots of junior guests visiting then perhaps offering one of our child-sized, bathrobes for kids (just like mummy’s) would be a nice touch?

If you’d like to provide hotel bathrobes with a personal touch (and reduce the likelihood of them going walkabout) we can provide embroidered bathrobes with hotel logos or bespoke messaging. Branded hotel bathrobes can be an excellent addition for your hotel shop too – and a great momento for hotel guests to remember their stay with you.

Providing your guests with slippers to wear own their hotel bedroom is not only a nice welcome gift for them, but also potentially beneficial for your overall hotel cleanliness. If you have a hotel spa, a quality selection of hotel slippers is essential. For poolside use our non-slip slippers are ideal and our thong style slippers are perfect for your guests to wear if they’ve just had a pedicure. We have a luxurious black towelling slipper which is great if you’d like a more practical slipper which you can encourage guests to wear throughout their stay.

Hotel guests regularly include complimentary dressing gowns and slippers as expected ‘must-haves’ on review forums.

If you want to encourage your hotel guests to use the in-room facilities, truly relax and enjoy their stay, providing additional guest friendly accessories is definitely worth considering. If you’d like some advice about which kind of hotel bathrobe or hotel slipper might suit your particular hotel style – just give us a call.

When the nights get cooler, it could be a good time to consider your hotel bedding too.

Hotel guests are looking for a restful nights sleep and that tends to come with a cosy duvet or a soft mattress topper. We’ve created a collection of bedding for hotel bedrooms which incorporates plenty of items for the grown – ups, but also a comprehensive collection of children’s bedding for hotels, including cots for hotel bedrooms.

If you’re looking for economical hollow fibre duvets and pillows then we can help.

We also have fabulous quality, luxurious goose feather duvets and pillows too. For really cold nights, why not offer your hotel guests a cosy hot water bottle with a quilted cover before they hit the hay? For the little ones, why not keep a stock of our snuggly cellular blankets, cot duvets an duvets covers. Happy children make for happy parents after all.

       

At Hotel Supplies Ltd, we’ve got loads of ideas for extra guest friendly touches to help beat the chill and bring a warm glow to your hotel.

Why not add some of our gorgeous coloured tea lights for example? Head over to www.hotelsuppliesltd.co.uk for more ideas.

Hotel Supplies talks towels…

In the late, great Douglas Adam’s cult book, The HItchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, the towel was identified as ‘About the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have’.  This noteworthy quote prompted the introduction of a National Towel day when to mark the importance of the towel, everyone is encouraged to carry one (it’s the 25th May if you’re interested).

At Hotel Supplies, we sell tons of guest friendly towels.

We recognise the fact that to hoteliers, towel supply, towel collection, towel folding and towel laundering is a big part of the hotel’s day-to-day operation. The value of a towel is definitely generally underestimated as they are often the most used items in the hotel bathroom or cloakroom.

The majority of hotel guest towels are 100% cotton or a cotton, polyester blend.

          

At Hotel Supplies, all our towels and face cloths are 100% cotton because they’re more absorbent and much softer than blended fabrics – perfect for the most exacting or sensitive skinned. Every towel has a listed fabric weight which is generally measured in grams per square metre or gsm. The gsm measure refers to how dense and thick the towel is and consequently indicates how quickly it dries off. Lighter, lower gsm towels are often used in hotel spa or leisure facilities and the thicker towels make luxurious bathroom towels.

The hotel towels in the Hotel Supplies collection range from 400gsm Leisure and Spa towels to our luxurious 600gsm Madison Hotel Towels.

Our great quality, standard Chelsea towels are a cosy 500gsm  – perfect for your hotel use as they are economical, easy to wash and come in a range of sizes.

          

As sorting towels out can be a bit of a headache for hoteliers, some of our towels have handy details to help with this.  For example, our Chelsea Towels have a different number of chevron bands, depending on their size so a hotel housekeeping team can quickly spot which towel type it is. Our leisure hotel towels have blue stripes – partly as a design detail but also because it makes it much easier to quickly separate them from the general hotel bathroom towels.

It’s a well known fact that light fingered hotel guests have been known to squirrel away the odd hotel towel or two. (A washable electronic tag has even been launched to sew into towels to combat theft). If towel pilfering is a problem for you, why not make those towels a bit more promotional and add your hotel branding? Low cost, it can be a good way of re-iterating that the towels are hotel property but they’ll also remind your hotel guests about your hotel if they do take the towels away. It might even turn your hotel towels into desirable enough momentos for you to sell in your hotel shop.

We offer a special personalisation service on our Madison Hotel Towel Range. Just get in touch to find out more.

Here are some other things you might not know about the humble towel…

  1. Charles Dickens was the first to use the word ’towel’ as a verb. Shakespeare never mentioned a towel in any of his plays.
  2. The term ’throw in the towel’, was first coined in 1915 in relation to boxing. Before that, the phrase ‘throw in the sponge was used’.
  3. Bath towels were invented in the city of Bursa in Turkey in the 14th Century.
  4. Hand towels (the paper variety) were invented in 1907 by Arthur Scott of Philadelphia.
  5. In her 1897 book, ‘Travels in West Africa, Mary Henrietta Kingsly famously questions : “What is life without a towel?”

Whether you’re looking for thick, snuggly premium bath towels, lighter weight leisure towels for spas or poolside, or you just want a simple, practical and economical white Egyptian cotton towel for your hotel bathrooms, just head to the Hotel Supplies website and check out our cosy towel collection. If you can’t spot exactly what you’re after – just get in touch and we’ll do our very best to help you out.

Teddy Bears for Hotels – a cuddly, must-have addition.

held-teddy

A staple part of every child’s toy collection for as long as anyone can remember, the Teddy Bear is still very much a favourite children’s toy.

The first Teddy Bear is believed to have been made in Germany in 1902 but they take their name from US president Theodore Roosevelt who was a keen bear hunter and had the nickname ‘Teddy’. The story goes that he went on a bear hunt but was not successful, so one of the guides who wanted to please him tied a wounded bear cub to a tree for him to shoot (yikes). Luckily Teddy declined, saying it would not be sportsmanlike to kill the cub – and this is the story which appeared in the papers along with a cartoon of him cuddling a little bear. The term Teddy Bear stuck.

Teddy bears have long been a favourite with hoteliers around the world.

There are a number of Teddy bear themed hotels in existence, as well as hotels with Teddy Bear themed rooms. Teddy Bear’s picnics and charity events are also popular in the hotel industry. Synonymous with home comforts, cosiness, family and romance – they make a brilliant guest giveaway, gift or addition to the Hotel Shop.

For Valentine’s Day, a teddy bear makes a gorgeous addition (particularly for last-minute purchase). For school holidays, it makes sense to provide Teddy Bears to keep your younger hotel guests (and the young-at-heart) happy. Teddy Bears make excellent momentos to remind guests how much they enjoyed their stay with you too – and this is why considering offering branded Teddy Bears with the name or logo of your hotel – or a quirky message is such a great idea.

A recent hotel chain study reported that a third of adults go to bed with some kind of stuffed animal.

It also discovered that 25% of men take teddies on business trips with them. A cuddly friend from home helps people feel comfortable in a strange place so just in case people forget to bring their teddy along when they stay at your hotel – providing a substitute could certainly cheer them up a bit.

Travelling Teddy Bears are a growing phenomenon on Instagram and Facebook, with travel Blogs featuring intrepid Hotel guest Teddy Bears and their trips around the world popping up on a regular basis. The teddy-tastic photo below for example is part of a huge, fabulous portfolio of images of Teddy on holiday, taken all around the world by amateur photographer Christian Kneidinger.

It’s not always easy in a hotel to ensure that noise is kept to a minimum and that traffic, events and other guests do not cause a disturbance. If your hotel is city based or regularly hosts large scale celebrations then ear plugs might be a useful addition to your guest friendly amenities selection. Even if your hotel is a haven of peace and tranquility, you still might find they’re useful for offering to light-sleeping guests. We have some beautifully packaged boxed ear plugs in a choice of colours to suit contemporary or traditional hotel styles.

Provide the comfiest bedding for your hotel guests.

Our black cotton twill hotel bags are both stylish and practical…

If you’re looking for a smart, hardworking solution for holding guest laundry, for delivering newspapers or for keeping guest shoes in pairs, look no further than our black cotton drawstring hotel bags. From £2.25 per unit, the fabric is great quality and they all feature embroidered messaging and sturdy cord ties. Whether you want to hang them from a clothes hook inside your hotel guest bedrooms or slip them into a drawer, these hotel bags will co-ordinate with your hotel decor and protect their contents perfectly. There is also potential to have your own hotel branding added, or bespoke messaging (dependent on quantity required).

Our linen hotel bags are robust and have a fabulous natural look…

If black hotel bags are a little bit heavy for you, then perhaps our creamy linen drawstring hotel bags might be more suitable? All made from great quality fabric with strong cotton rope ties and subtle embroidery, prices start from £2.25 each. These linen hotel bags are carefully designed for specific end use – the shoe bags for example feature two separate sections which prevent shoes from scuffing each other and they are roomy enough to hold large mens’ shoes as well as high heels.

Alternatively, opt for our simple white hotel bags…

For the budget conscious, Hotel Supplies Ltd’s non-woven hotel bags are an economical choice…

Our lighter weight, non woven hotel bags are still roomy and robust but the material they’re made from is a man-made, non woven fabric which is a lot cheaper than cotton or linen.

Providing your hotel guests with guest accessories and room amenities which actually make life easier can really make all the difference.

Allowing your guests to be able to get ready in the morning without being faced with a tangle of hairdryer cable, providing them with a newspaper that’s tidily folded and crease free or clearly communicating that you’re offering a simple guest laundry or shoe shine service will all benefit your hotel guests – and by investing in a range of co-ordinating guest bags for your hotel, you can easily up the ante when it comes to  hotel guest services.

For more information, just get in touch or pop along to the Hotels Supplies Ltd website.

Make things easier for hotel staff behind the scenes in your hotel…

Your hotel staff and their ability to engage, impress and go beyond the call of duty can be the key differentiator which secures return guest visits.

They are the engine room – responsible for the smooth running and maintenance of the hotel, but they’re also the face of the hotel – and their interaction with guests combined with their efficiency and ability is integral to overall hotel guest satisfaction.

When you’ve found a fabulous collection of excellent staff members, keeping hold of them can be a challenge but there are plenty of things which you can do to help make their job more enjoyable and rewarding – but also which can help them be more efficient at the tasks in hand – preventing them feeling too stressed or too busy to engage with guests.

There are plenty of things which your company can offer hotel staff as an an incentive, perk or opportunity to build staff relationships.

From low level acknowledgements and gifts to more elaborate rewards, sometimes the recognition you give a staff member is just as important then the value of the gift.

Gifting an excellent employee a voucher for a spa treatment or overnight stay or giving them a bottle of wine, some luxurious toiletries or a gourmet food gift could really make them feel appreciated. Being in the hotel business means it’s relatively simple to come up with some nice ideas for hospitality related rewards – the trick is to make sure your hotel staff don’t feel that they’ve been given a busman’s holiday!

A great way to incentivise the whole hotel team is to arrange a team outing or break. It may be a challenge to find a time that suits everybody, even an hour out can be a hugely valuable way to get everyone working towards the same end, and feeling valued at the same time.

It’s a good idea to review hotel processes too – just to see if there are small changes which can make big differences to your hotel staff’s everyday efficiencies.

At Hotel Supplies, we aim to supply boutique hotels, spas and hotel chains with a few useful amenities which can truly help out.

Simple solutions, like providing hotel housekeeping staff with our light but hardwearing cleaning caddies could really speed things up. Likewise, our maid bags are a smart but practical solution for staff to carry their cleaning kit around.

Some of our hotel accessories can improve things for staff as well as guests. In your hotel guest bathrooms, using double walled waste paper bins and sanitary bag dispensers means cleaning the guest bathrooms is a much more hygienic process. Similarly, opting for our pump dispensers for your public washroom areas means hotel staff aren’t forever clearing up soap scum.

Do not disturb signs aren’t just for your hotel guests benefit.

Having hotel door signs available for guests to use means that your staff are much less likely to barge in on a guest and have to face their irritation. Incorporating a luggage rack into your hotel guest bedrooms means guests tend to keep their bags off the floor, without belongings spilling all over the place. This makes it much easier for staff to have a quick tidy round, or vacuum if needed.

a6-notepads-2767-p[ekm]219x220[ekm]    waiter-s-friend-1317-p[ekm]219x219[ekm]    countryman-umbrella-quantity-24-860-p[ekm]219x219[ekm]

Providing your hotel staff with a good supply of branded notepads and pens means they’re always able to jot down guest requests or keep note of what needs doing as and when. Giving your housekeeping staff a pad and branded hotel pen to pop into their pockets can instantly improve their likelihood of staying on top of everything. If you have the kind of hotel which is spread across multiple buildings, something as simple as providing a handful of umbrellas by each door, for both guests and staff to use as they move through different areas in the hotel. Even supplying bar staff with great quality, robust ‘waiters friend’ corkscrews will help to make their life easier.

There are plenty of different ways to ensure your hotel staff feel valued but making their jobs as doable as possible is a great start.

Hotel Public Washrooms – Making the best impression…

bathroom

One of the areas where hotel guests have seriously high expectations is the bathroom facilities.

When it comes to their guest-room bathroom, they’d like somewhere spotlessly clean, spa-like and supplied with a great selection of luxurious toiletries – and this is more than often the case. If those high expectations can’t quite be met, cleanliness is always a must (though of course it’s partly down to the guest in question how long it’s maintained).

But there are also the hotel’s public washroom facilities to consider.

Because they are potentially open to a stream of restaurant, bar or spa guests who could be enticed into booking a future stay, as well as providing facilities for staying guest, they’re potentially even more important to maintain to a top standard than the guest bathrooms. They are in essence, a preview of what a potential guest might find if they were to book a stay with you.

Great lighting and quality mirrors are a good start.

Having lighting which is bright enough for guests to apply make-up, but which is also flattering enough to boost confidence is the holy grail of hotel lighting. Combining this with large mirrors makes the washroom a lighter, brighter place to be. It’s also useful to consider ensuring there’s some space by the sinks to rest a handbag or cosmetics purse without it sitting in a puddle of water. If you’re guest washroom space is very limited, incorporating smaller wall mounted shaving mirrors can be a quirky touch.

Create an ambience which suits the rest of the hotel.

Whether your hotel is classically traditional with wooden beams, antique furniture and rustic charm, or if it’s a more contemporary and chic boutique hotel, it’s important to bring that style into the hotel washroom – whether it’s through pictures on the walls, a focus on clean minimalism or an indulgent luxe feel throughout. Hotel Supplies has a wide range of hotel bathroom accessories which can help smarten up or add a little style to your public washrooms. We have everything from simple, discreet toilet brush holders to luxe gold tissue box decanters.

Plenty of hand towels, regularly replaced and kept tidy.

luxury-airlaid-hand-towels-case-1200-104-p[ekm]220x219[ekm]   plaid-weave-face-cloths-2221-p[ekm]219x219[ekm]   plain-face-cloths-quantity-500-plain-terry-facecloths-2256-p[ekm]219x219[ekm]

It can be  tricky decision whether to opt for paper hand towels for your guests, towelling facecloths or an air dryer. It’s the classic case of style over cost but if you want to opt for simple paper towels, we have some brilliant linen-feel, airlaid hand towels which are surprisingly economical.

Alternatively, if you’d like more of a spa feel, we have a selection of cotton facecloths which will stack up beautifully in a basket by the sink. The key thing is to avoid a huge pile of used towels piling up in your public washroom areas – that’s a definite no-no with hotel guests.

A fresh smell and a great selection of toiletries.

pumps

Ensuring your hotel washroom smells fresh when guests pop in can really make all the difference. Providing an aromatic diffuser or room spray can be a nice touch. The general aroma can be helped by  providing a fragrant selection of lotions and potions – Opt for a hand soap for good hygiene and a hand lotion for an extra little bit of pampering. Hotel Supplies have a wide selection of washroom toiletries which have secure, wall hung dispenser units and there’s the option to buy our economical refill packs.

If you’re looking for more ideas for making your public washroom that little bit more welcoming, why not take a look at the Hotel Supplies website.
