Eliminating plastic bags is an important step if you want to Go Green.
Within our boxed and sachet amenities, we have changed our sanitary bags from plastic to paper. They’ll do the same job but will have far less impact on the environment.

Our goal is to cut out cello wrap wherever possible, so you can now find our Bamboo Dental and Vanity Kits sealed in paper within their recycled cardboard boxes.

Making it easier to go green

We hope our new ‘Go Green’ badges have made it easier to find our more environmentally friendly products.

Take a look on our website and you will find these popping up frequently amongst many of our ranges.

You’ll also see new ‘Vegan’ badges appear on lots of our toiletries, making it clearer to see which ranges may be more suitable for your guests.

 


Geneva Green Hotel Toiletries

Geneva Green is the most recent addition to the Hotel Supplies family. We love this for its light, bright fragrance as well as the ideal packaging.

The brand uses recycled materials which can then be recycled again after use which means nothing needs to go to waste.

 


Anyah Guest Toiletries

The very popular ANYAH has continued to ‘make the environment smile’. Kinder to our oceans, Anyah has the lowest CDV TOX calculation. This means that the volume of water needed to dissolve one gram of product is very low, therefore is not toxic to our aquatic systems.  Anyah toiletries can be purchased in handy Doypacks or recyclable bottles.

 

 


Osme Organic Hotel Toiletries

Power from renewable green energy has helped to make Osme Organic products. Reflecting a love of nature and avoiding waste, each 38ml bottle has a simple leaf shaped seal which acts as an easy way for housekeeping to see if the bottles have been opened and need replacing.

 

 


The Rerum Natura Hotel Toiletries Collection

Translating into ‘‘The nature of things”, The Rerum Natura uses eco-friendly caps on the 40ml bottles. They have been cleverly made from bio-based recyclable plastic and FSC wood from sugar cane.

 

 


Pump Dispensers are an excellent eco-friendly solution

Pump dispensers enable you to offer guests amazing toiletries without using and throwing away as much plastic.

Generously sized bottles can be refilled time after time and can also be a cost effective solution for your business.

Preventing loss, our pump dispensers can be safely secured using their recommended wall brackets.

How to help your guests prepare for a night out

As part of the travel experience, be it a holiday or business trip, hotel guests will often be heading out for the evening. Whether for a wedding evening do, romantic date or wild night on the town, guests will want to look their best. Any quality hotel establishment should make the getting ready process as easy and stress-free as possible.

Inevitably, there will always be the ultra prepared guest who brings a wheelbarrow of tools for getting ready – hair tongs, ironing board, enough cosmetics to make over the entire hotel – but there will also be the wildly unprepared guests. Cater for all scenarios and ensure your guests have everything they need to brush up and head out dressed in their glad rags. Here are a selection of our top tips for providing a seamless getting ready experience:

Hotel Toiletries

Anyah hotel toiletriesWe often mention the importance of quality hotel toiletries and we cannot stress enough the significance of the small details. Provide luxurious brands that will make your guest feel valued and pampered. Opt for sleek packaging to reinforce a sense of opulence and choose invigorating scents that will leave your guests feeling boosted and refreshed.

With a growing awareness of environmental issues, consumers are more tuned in to the source of the products they use. We would recommend an eco-friendly collection, such as the Anyah range, which is approved by the EU eco-label mark of quality for its packaging. Furthermore, avoid any products that utilise preserving ingredients like parabens and formaldehyde or even animal based ingredients. Guests will appreciate the natural feel and their skin will thank them for it.

Hairdryer

Generally expected in hotel rooms nowadays, hairdryers are an essential hotel accessory to provide. Go a step further and opt for a high powered hairdryer, such as the Valera Swiss Turbo. It will mean that your guests can style their hair in half the usual time and will appreciate the extra time they reap for putting some finishing touches to their evening look.Hotel hairdryers

Here at Hotel Supplies we offer a range of hairdryers. From budget, compact options to luxurious, high-end alternatives, there is something to suit all establishments. Choose between our Northmace & Hendon hairdryers or the Valera range and decide between a simplistic white colour or more extravagant steel gold.

Bathroom Mirror

Of course most hotel bathrooms will be equipped with a sizeable bathroom mirror. However, for an important finishing touch, ensure you are also supplying a smaller vanity mirror for shaving or applying makeup. No one can achieve that perfect eyeliner flick from a distance in a large mirror!Hotel bathroom mirrors

Whether free-standing or wall-mounted, your vanity mirror should not only be practical but look good, seamlessly blending in with the rest of the bathroom. Ensure there is a magnifying side so your guests can complete any of the finer details of their grooming with precision and ease.

Irons and Ironing Boards

There is nothing worse than unpacking your shirt or dress only to find your packing skills weren’t quite up to standard when you see a noticeable set of creases adorning your outfit. As your only outfit option, you need an iron and fast. Imagine the relief when you see one hiding away in your hotel room, ready for you to use and just waiting to save the day.

Hotel ironing board and ironA functioning iron and ironing board can mean the difference between a relaxing, enjoyable getting ready experience and a frenzied one. Ironing centres can be bulky products so ensure you opt for a space saving solution but never compromise on safety. Functionality and practicality are key here.

Emergency Kits

Toothpaste, nail trimmers and cottons pads: all notoriously easy to forget when travelling but nevertheless important, especially when preparing for an evening out. Be sure to have a backup for your guests so you can save the day. Cover the essentials with a vanity kit, dental kit, shaving kit, nail kit and sewing kit.Hotel Supplies black box amenities

Here at Hotel Supplies, we provide a range of hotel guest amenities, featuring all the necessary emergency kits. These include our Black Box range, Luxury Boxed range and White Box range. Packaged in contemporary boxes, these guest amenities are both highly practical and uniquely stylish.  

 

Ultimately you need to be putting yourself in the shoes of your hotel guests and thinking about how you can make their life as easy as possible. Getting ready for an event or night out should be fun and relaxing. Provide the necessary tools and your guests will enjoy a seamless evening and they’ll have you to thank for it.

7 things every luxury hotel should have

‘Luxury’ is a word that gets banded around quite a bit nowadays. Whether it’s a luxury burger or a luxury saucepan, the boundaries of grandeur have become a little blurred. When it comes to hotels, there is no set criteria to meet before it can be categorised as luxury. The result is a number of self-proclaimed ‘luxury’ hotels who may not be offering all the special finishing touches that they should be.

We have had experience working with many different hotels and we believe that if a hotel markets itself as ‘luxury’ then it needs to offer a luxurious experience. From the obvious features to the small but meaningful details, we have compiled a selection of things that every luxury hotel should have. Although our list is not exhaustive, we reckon these hotel amenities and features are at least the minimum requirements for a touch of hotel room opulence.

  1. Impressive interiors

Generating that ‘wow’ feeling when your guest walks into their hotel room is crucial in kickstarting the luxury experience. Never underestimate this first impression as it will inevitably have a bearing on how they feel towards the rest of their stay. There’s no need for chandeliers or baby grand pianos but ensure that the rooms are thoughtfully designed, have plenty of natural light and that they appeal to a wide range of tastes.

  1. Room with a view

Room with a view5

Imagine walking into a luxury hotel room, feeling wowed by the interior design and furnishings, walking over to the window and seeing a grey carpark, or worse, the hotel bins. Any feelings of grandeur will be snuffed out right in that moment. Luxury rooms need a luxury view – whether it’s a view across the ocean or vast green countryside, a room with a view can make all the difference.

  1. Comfortable hotel bedding

A good night’s sleep is very important to the weary traveller and guests will arguably spend about half of their time at the hotel in bed. Needless to say, beds are important; you should be ensuring maximum comfort by investing in high quality bedding. At Hotel Supplies we offer a variety of soft duvets and sumptuously snug goose down and cotton combinations, as well as a luxury goose feather pillow. The right hotel bedding should provide so much comfort that after they have left, your guests will be popping back for naps!

  1. Hotel robes and hotel slippers

Bath robeSpa or no spa, guests should always have the option of slipping on a comfy bathrobe and slippers while lounging in their hotel room. For a premium feel, opt for velour and treat your guests to the ultimate comfy luxury. Practical, comfortable and as stylish as a bathrobe can be! Plus, don’t forget the kids – let them join in the luxury experience with children’s robes. For more information on providing a luxury hotel bathroom for your guests, read our post on sprucing up your hotel bathroom.

  1. Storage

Why have a beautifully designed interior if there is no storage? Avoid the clutter and mess that guests will bring by providing ample storage space with sufficient drawers, shelves and wardrobe space. Remember to include a plentiful supply of hotel hangers – this is a common complaint among guests staying in luxury hotels. Being able to hang up your clothes so that they remain crease-free is a pretty basic ask but is so often overlooked by hoteliers.

  1. Tea/coffee making services

Tea trayFor the British public, a good cup of tea or coffee is essentially as important as having a bed. Go above and beyond by ensuring that the tea and coffee offering is presented beautifully on a stylish but practical welcome tray. Our Regal Chrome Welcome Tray is highly practical with compartmentalisation, ease of cleaning and resistance to heat and scratches, while also looking high quality and stylish.

  1. Safe

You’ve accomplished the luxury look, you’ve achieved luxury levels of comfort and you’ve procured your luxury guest amenities. Now you need to spare a thought for security. It is crucial that the guests have somewhere to securely store their valuables and it is now common practice for all hotel rooms to have a safe. It’s no good achieving a high level of luxury if your guests do not feel as though their personal belongings are safe.

At Hotel Supplies, we are big believers in the power of the little details. Providing a luxury experience is not just about the style and service; it is about making certain that the guest has everything they could possibly need (within reason) and ensuring maximum comfort wherever possible.

How to spruce up your hotel bathroom…

A beautiful hotel bathroom complete with the shiniest taps, glossy tiling, flattering lighting and never-ending hot water can truly make a guest’s stay.

A key part of the total hotel experience is that guests can take time to truly relax and pamper themselves (without having to clean out the bath afterwards) so providing an environment which is complete with every single essential plus plenty of extra special touches can make the difference between an ok stay and something truly special. Combining a carefully designed hotel bathroom layout with lots of lovely luxuries will mean that your hotel lives up to the highest expectations and can compete with the best of the rest.

lace-bathroom

Mirror, mirror – Incorporating a mirror that would be worthy of a film star’s bathroom wall is a must. Not only will adding mirrors make your hotel bathrooms feel bigger and brighter, they can also harbour built-in lighting and ensure your hotel guests go out without a hair out of place.

Towels, wrapped up – A constant supply of clean, fluffy towels is a given for a luxurious hotel bathroom. Opt for good quality, 100% cotton towels with double turned hems and stitched detail and they’ll be super absorbent but incredibly soft. The hotel guest’s favourite is always a bright white towel, a little bit more high maintenance but always stacks very smartly on a bathroom shelf.

The cosiest bathrobes – Similarly, having a couple of gorgeously soft and fluffy bathrobes hanging on the back of the bathroom door or folded neatly on the bed will mean your hotel guests can quickly slip into something more comfortable.

Stylish showering – Current trends are still moving towards a general preference for a stylish wet room style shower rather than a bath/shower combination. A contemporary rainforest style shower head will provide a thoroughly reviving experience and you can complete the look with wall mounted toiletries in convenient and stylish dispensers.

A throne fit for a king – Selecting a suitably sleek toilet with a soft-close lid, stylish silhouette and a flush handle that’s hygienic and easy to use will also mean your hotel bathroom experience is seriously slick.

Gorgeous lotions and potions – Choosing a range of toiletries which will not only look visually appealing but which will also smell scrumptious and leave your guests feeling clean and re-vitalised should be a priority. Whether you opt for a collection that is eco-friendly, aromatherapy infused or richly luxurious, having great toiletries displayed beautifully is key.

A relaxing colour scheme – Choosing a colour scheme that will create a relaxing ambience for your guests and enhancing it with mood lighting can make a bathroom a haven.

Practical, helpful amenities – Providing beautifully arranged amenities, such as a pre-threaded sewing kit or vanity kit for your guests, branded up with your hotel logo or otherwise will ensure that a lost button or torn nail won’t become a drama.

Bring the outdoors in – Why not follow the current trend for accessorising with houseplants as part of your hotel scheme? Adding a low maintenance succulent in a beautiful earthenware pot or glass jar could give you a fabulous finishing touch that softens the space brilliantly.
