Hotel guest supplies for a good night’s sleep…

If you can give your hotel guests a comfortable bed, a sound night’s sleep and the opportunity to enjoy a lie-in in the morning, there’s a pretty good chance that they’ll check out of your hotel feeling happy.


Provide a hotel Do Not Disturb sign for your guest bedrooms.

Screen Shot 2017-05-08 at 11.51.05   Screen Shot 2017-05-08 at 11.51.25

Not only does the provision of guest ‘Do Not Disturb’ signs ensure that your hotel guests get to make the most of a undisturbed morning lie-in, they also reduce the likelihood of any staff embarrassment if they need to service the guest rooms. Our range of reversible ‘Do Not Disturb’ signs includes our stylish leather room signs which are available in a range of finishes and can be personalised with your hotel branding for a particularly impressive touch. We can also supply economical faux leather signs which are reversible too, allowing your hotel guests to either request a room service, or request that they’re left in peace for a little bit longer.

Keep hotel rooms calm and quiet for sleep deprived hotel guests.

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.

Screen Shot 2017-05-08 at 11.58.54  Screen Shot 2017-05-08 at 11.59.14  Screen Shot 2017-05-08 at 11.59.57

If you can give your hotel guests a ‘home from home, but better’ experience then they’re much more likely to book a return visit. A comfortable, freshly laundered bed with crisp cotton bedsheets and a super snuggly duvet will ensure bedtime bliss and you can find everything you need on the Hotel Supplies Ltd website. We have a fantastic range of specially selected bedding including pillows, duvets, mattress toppers, pillowcases, sheets and duvet covers. We’ve even got children’s cot bedding and cots so you can make sure the little ones get a good night’s sleep too.

Add some thoughtful extras from our Hotel Amenities collection.

Did your hotel guests get a loving feeling this Valentine’s Day?

Almost the end of February now and we’re well over the rush of Valentine’s Day excitement. It does however seem to be a good time to reflect on whether the most was made of all the hearts and flowers – or whether Valentine’s Day was a financial and slightly heartbreaking flop. Most importantly it’s a good moment to make a note of anything you might do differently at your hotel or B&B, or what you might add into your hotel’s Valentine offering to make sure that next year’s February 14th is a day to remember.


What can you offer your hotel guests above and beyond the norm?

We’ve had a look into what some of the hottest hotels of the moment did this year to ensure they were fully booked up through the valentine’s period – and we’ve also had a think about some added extras to offer your hotel guests to ensure they’ll feel thoroughly loved up.

Extra special additions for the hotel bedroom


The Escape in Llandudno is a funky and fabulous retreat which offers Conran love seats, sleigh beds and clawfoot baths but the simple fact that children under ten aren’t allowed to stay helps to make this romantic boutique b&b even more attractive as a love nest. This year the innovative team at the Welsh hotel spread the love with an auction for a romantic stay and a sprinkling of rose petals and love heart sweets in the hotel bedrooms. It’s the little things that can make all the difference after all. (Photo from The Escape’s website: www.escapebandb.co.uk)

Serve your hotel guests something romantic to make their stay special


The Crazy Bear in Beaconsfield is the ultimate sexy retreat but it’s not just the fabulous hotel bathrooms and sumptuous hotel bedrooms that get the senses stirring. As well as hosting an exotic masquerade party the hotel ensured guests were well refreshed with sultry cocktails and the tastiest nibbles. (Photo from The Crazy Bear’s website: www.crazybeargroup.co.uk)

Provide special toiletries and a luxurious bathroom experience


The Velvet in Manchester offers a wide range of beautifully themed rooms from pretty and feminine to dark and decadent. Particularly suited to a romantic getaway are their heated balconies, four poster beds and crystal chandeliers but we especially like the idea of their ‘bath butler’ who will run your bath just to your liking and add floating candles and rose petals. (Photo from the Velvet Hotel website: www.velvetmanchester.com)

Supply some simple, helpful and enjoyable treats for your hotel guests

The special touches which can make all the difference to your hotel guests don’t have to be ultra extravagant and they don’t have to be expensive. Just offering a later-than-usual checkout that allows for an extra lie-in can be the ultimate treat. Or how about offering your hotel guests a guide to the most romantic spots in your town so they have the perfect itinerary for their Valentine’s treat.

Soft bedding and luxury bathrobes can make all the difference

As well as ensuring you have your fluffiest pillows and crispest bed linen on offer, plenty of ‘his and hers’ matching bath robes and slippers and a fabulous dinner menu on offer in the hotel restaurant, how about a glass of something sparkly for couples on arrival?  Adding candles, rose petals or special toiletries can be a nice surprise and adding fresh flowers can ready any room for romance.

Screen Shot 2017-02-27 at 14.05.38     Screen Shot 2017-02-27 at 14.06.50

If your hotel is a popular venue for weddings then why not consider offering intimate vow renewals for Valentine’s day? Provide dinner but accompany proceedings with some live music and perhaps some dancing.

If you have a Spa hotel then Valentine’s Day can be an ideal opportunity to offer tailored treatments for couples and if you specialise in health and fitness, a fruit plate with strawberries could make a good alternative to chocolates.

Personalised amenities and luxurious toiletries can be a lovely touch

Screen Shot 2017-02-27 at 14.08.43     Screen Shot 2017-02-27 at 14.08.04

Adding specially tailored pamper packs for guests with spicy and sensual toiletries and lotions and a satin eye mask would make a great hotel bedroom addition  and there are plenty of opportunities for personalisation that would add an extra ‘wow’ – from bespoke cuddly teddy bears to monogrammed pillows, slippers or bathrobes.

‘After the event’ is always the best time to review, reflect and come up with bigger and better ideas. Don’t leave it til next February to start thinking about the best ways to bring the guests flocking for Valentine’s Day and also to ensure that they leave feeling thoroughly loved up. Why not drop us a line if you need some extra special hotel supplies?

How to provide a child-friendly hotel experience

Holidaying with children can be both a joy and a struggle. Striking the balance between keeping the children sufficiently entertained and allowing the adults to enjoy a heavy dose of relaxation can be tricky. If you market yourself as a child-friendly establishment then you need to be adequately living up to those expectations. If the experience you are providing does not impress the kids then it will inevitably have a knock-on effect for the adults.

Given that it is the adults who are paying out the money to enjoy the holiday, it is of paramount importance that they are more than satisfied. When it comes to families, the way to do this is simple: keep the kids happy and the rest will follow. Here at Hotel Supplies Ltd, we are experts in all the little details that can make a holiday great. Appealing to children is no exception, evident in our extensive child-friendly amenities range. Here we share our advice on providing the perfect family-friendly hotel experience.

Children’s Activity Packs

Screen Shot 2016-08-09 at 09.13.53To counter any short attention spans, ensure the little ones have the tools they need to keep themselves entertained while mum and dad settle in. Push the boat out further than simple crayons and colouring books. Provide a fully stocked activity pack that will keep their boredom radar in check. We offer a variety of activity packs, each with a different theme, which feature a host of fun and educational activities. From jigsaw puzzles to card games, they will provide hours of play.

Children’s Entertainment

Activity packs will go so far but soon enough the great outdoors will come calling and the kids will want to get stuck into some lively recreation. Ensure that your hotel provides ample activities tailored specifically for children. Whether it involves a bit of sporty fun or an evening entertainment show, there should be a range of options to satisfy all young personalities.

Hotel Toiletries

Screen Shot 2016-08-09 at 09.14.12All hotels provide toiletries for the adult guests but not many offer child-friendly hotel toiletries. Too often overlooked, children should not be expected to use the same products as their parents. With far more delicate skin and different needs, little ones should be using child-friendly products.

Our Childs Farm range of toiletries are made from all natural ingredients, free from any nasties and thoroughly dermatologically tested. Complete with adorable farm-themed packaging and a delicious scent, your little ones will be both delighted and squeaky clean. The range includes shampoo, conditioner, hair & body wash and bubble bath.

Mini Hotel Bathrobes & Slippers

Continuing with the theme of pampering, ensure that the children are not left out when mum and dad relax in their bathrobes and comfy slippers. Supply a mini hotel bathrobe for the little ones to cosy up in and some accompanying hotel slippers so they can feel just as grown up as their adult counterparts. Have a look at our super snuggly bathrobe, available in ages 1-12, and children’s slippers available in 4-5 years and 7-8 years.

Babysitting/Child-Minding Services

Let mum and dad loosen the reigns by taking over responsibility for their dearly beloveds for a little time. Babysitting and child-minding services should be freely available in any hotel that markets itself as child-friendly. Ultimately, the adults have come on holiday to relax and a temporary break away from their lively little ones will help them to achieve this.

Hotel Cots

For the really tiny tots, a stylish and sturdy cot is a must-have in any family-friendly hotel room. Add a set of child-friendly bedding into the mix and a peaceful sleep for all members of the family should be easily achievable. We offer a wooden cot made from smooth beech that has the added advantage of being foldaway, for some added practicality points.

Teddy Bear

Screen Shot 2016-08-09 at 09.14.34For an extra special finishing touch, throw in an adorable cuddly toy to guarantee a seal of approval from the little ones (or for the adults who are young at heart!). Promotional teddy bears add an extra touch of uniqueness in line with your hotel’s own brand and identity. Our little teddy bears have a versatile wardrobe, from white bathrobes to hooded fleeces, all with the option for personalised embroidery or print.


Of course this list is not exhaustive and there are a myriad of ways to entertain the little ones at your hotel. Just ensure that if you market yourself as a child-friendly hotel that you are providing the necessary services. Keep the kids smiling and the adults will follow.

Festive finishing touches for your Hotel’s Christmas period…

As we fast approach the beginning of December and the official start of Christmas,  as well as the fabulous tree, seasonal menu and spiced pot pourri, there are plenty of extra touches and additional amenities which can help make the festive period at your hotel even more special (and smooth running).

For gifts for your younger guests, treats for your special guests and useful hotel extras which may well be worth stocking up on, look no further than Hotel Supplies. We’ve got some great ideas for gifts you can sell in your hotel shop or Spa area too.

Screen Shot 2015-11-25 at 10.22.11  Screen Shot 2015-11-25 at 10.22.53

For the young and the young at heart, why not offer some gorgeous cuddly teddies? Available in a choice of outfits they make an excellent spontaneous gift or lovely welcome for guests if you pop one in your hotel guest bedroom ready for their arrival.

To keep the kids occupied during extended festive meals it’s nice to be able to offer them a fun activity pack. Full of puzzles and games, these kids activity packs, available in Pirate or Princess designs, make a great little gift and they’ll help to ensure Mum and Dad get a moment to relax too.

Screen Shot 2015-11-25 at 10.26.41  Screen Shot 2015-11-25 at 10.27.01

If you’re thinking of ways to improve the festive ambience around your hotel, why not consider adding some seasonal touches like pretty candles or decorative displays? Our chunky glass tealight holders in a range of vibrant colours create a gorgeous glow and our glass display jars are ideal for holding candy canes, sweets or Christmassy biscuits – the ideal combination of practical and pretty.

With all the celebrating, Christmas can be a time of much needed sleep, whenever you can snatch it. To help ensure your guests get plenty of shut-eye, Hotel Supplies have a good selection of calming and relaxing hotel guest toiletries and also some very handy guest amenities. Our luxury Sleep Kit contains a mask and earplugs, beautifully boxed and we also have a sleek and satiny, individually wrapped eye mask.

Screen Shot 2015-11-25 at 10.24.34  Screen Shot 2015-11-25 at 10.29.39

To increase Christmas sales in your hotel gift shop, adding a couple of extra lines like this scrumptious Prija gift pack could be well worthwhile. They also make lovely gifts for your really special guests.

If your Spa and beauty therapy zones are expecting to carry out a lot of pre-party pedicures, it may be worth having plenty of cosy towelling thong slippers at the ready, to avoid your guests suffering from smears and smudges.

Screen Shot 2015-11-25 at 10.25.07  Screen Shot 2015-11-25 at 10.49.37

The temperature’s set to plummet and odds are on that it could well be a white Christmas so adding in the option of a cosy hot water bottle in a soft waffle cover might be a real guest-pleaser.  Whilst on the subject of bedrooms, as Christmas often brings romance it could also be a nice touch to have the option of a scattering of rose petals if it looks like love is in the air…

Great tips for creating winning hotels, courtesy of the Independent Hotel Show…

We had a great time at the Independent hotel Show last month. We met and mingled with lots of excellent boutique hotel managers, spa owners and directors of hotel chains and showed them what Hotel Supplies Ltd has to offer hotels like theirs. Our stand was a veritable treasure trove of luxurious hotel toiletry samples, cosy bathrobes and essential and stylish hotel accessories. We definitely felt we offered solutions to plenty of hotel challenges, from finding something suitable to entertain  younger guests to supplying maid bags to make hotel staff’s lives easier.

Since the show it’s been business as usual for Hotel Supplies, but we did notice that the Independent Hotel Show website is still worth a squizz. It’s got links to some thoroughly interesting mini-films on useful subjects, featuring really relevant people.

The clip which caught our eye in particular is a vlog called ‘independent thoughts’ featuring the trailblazers behind a boutique hotel in Cheltenham. The Independent Hotel show team asked them what they thought were the key points which made a hotel stand out and how including special and original touches could add to a hotel guest’s experience.

Screen Shot 2015-11-16 at 17.45.28

Accompanied by gorgeous and inspiring footage, the tips are well worth keeping in mind. Incorporating a sense of fun into the decor and the running of the hotel seemed hugely important to the pair – a point often missed and easy to address. The personal touch – so the hotel lingers in the guest’s mind well after they check out – is a way to add your own mark and inject some personality into a hotel space.

Focussing on the quality of the product seemed vital too. Be it the interior, food or drink – making sure it’s the best it can possibly be means guests are more likely to go home happy. Attention to detail like adding little surprise treats and luxuries (like scrumptious hotel toiletries), special messaging or a particular design element can really create a luxurious touch  too.

The featured duo summarised that a ultimately a hotel doesn’t need to have spectacularly designed guest bedrooms and bathrooms, serve Cordon Bleu cuisine in the restaurant or be five star to provide hotel guests with a fabulous and memorable stay. Greeting guests with a smile, making them feel at home , providing hospitality and generosity of spirit is the most important thing. It really is the simple things that can make all the difference.

We couldn’t agree more, and that’s why we make sure we have a wide range of special little touches that you can offer your guests (along with the smile). For everything from hotel toiletries to ambience-giving tea lights, cuddly teddies to kid’s activity packs, if you’re thinking of upping your game a little, or just ensuring your guests definitely do go home with a smile then take a look at our hotel supplies collection – we’ve got plenty to choose from.

There are some other videos which are well worth a quick look too, so next time you’re having a moment’s respite and fancy something educational to tune into, pop on over to the Independent Hotel Show website.
