Legislation for Tourist Accommodation - the rules & laws you need to follow
Are you a Hotel or Guest Accommodation?
Oxford English Dictionary
A hotel (a noun). ‘An establishment providing accommodation and meals for travellers and tourists.
General definition – ‘An establishment that provides paid lodging on a short term basis.’
Her Majesties Revenue and Customs
HMRC use the following as a guideline -
The Hotel Proprietors Act 1956 defines ‘a hotel as an establishment held out by the proprietor as offering food and drink and, if required, sleeping accommodation’.
Most holiday makers have their own understanding and expectations of a ‘hotel’. And this is based firmly in the traditional values of Comfort, Cleanliness and Friendliness.
So why settle for odd, ill-defined terms like ‘Guest Accommodation?’ when you are, to all intents and purposes and, most importantly, seen by your potential guests as really a HOTEL?
