A positive accommodation experience is all about creating a welcoming and comfortable environment that leaves a lasting impression on your guests. To ensure their satisfaction, it’s important to provide a thoughtful selection of amenities. In this blog post, we’ll explore the top 5 must-have amenities that can elevate your guests’ experience to new heights. From luxurious bathrobes to eco-friendly toiletries, a variety of breakfast options, premium coffee, and cozy electric blankets, these products go a long way to ensuring your guests become returning guests.
Prioritise comfort and add a touch of elegance
Wrap your guests in luxury with plush bathrobes. After a long day of traveling or exploring, there’s nothing quite like slipping into a soft and cozy robe. Provide bathrobes made of high-quality materials, ensuring that your guests feel pampered and relaxed during their stay. Bathrobes like the plush bathrobe, made from white coral fleece polyester, offering a cosy and warm texture that guests appear to love. The shawl collar adds a touch of elegance, while the pockets and tie belt provide practicality and convenience. There’s a variety of styles and materials to consider depending on budget and style of your offering, but we find it hard to go passed the plush bathrobe. The bathrobe is certainly high up on our list of ‘must-have amenities’.
Caring for the environment
Incorporate eco-friendly practices into your accommodation by offering environmentally friendly soaps and toiletries. Choose products that are free from harmful chemicals and are packaged using sustainable materials. These conscious choices not only benefit the environment but also show your guests that you care about their well-being. There’s no shortage of environmentally sensitive products such as Basic Earth, Eco.Fresh, Eartharapy and more. Most guest amenity manufcaturers are becoming more thoughtful about this as the consciousness of environmental sustainabilty increases.
Give your guests a delicious and healthy breakfast option by offering a variety of mixed cereals. Providing an assortment of cereals and including options for different dietary preferences and needs, ensures that every guest can start their day with a satisfying and nutritious meal. There are a huge range of breakfast options that will appeal to various guests so it’s important to consider offering the simple portion control cereal such as, Kellogg’s range including the popular Corn Flakes and Sultana Bran or Coco Pops for those with a sweeter tooth. We know that Muesli is a favourite particularly with more boutique accommodations; and there are multiple options here too, but here is one we suggest called “Valley Hills” that is exclusive to Yarra Valley Trading and Australian Accommodation Supplies.
Satisfy the senses
There’s nothing quite like a cup of freshly brewed coffee to kickstart the day and many people won’t be surprised to see coffee on the list of ‘top 5 amenities’. Impress your guests with premium coffee beans or grounded coffee. Many guests have probably considered whether or not to bring along their coffee machine and usually come to there senses and leave it home – a good idea but a little impractical. Offering a coffee machine can be well worth the investment. Make sure to provide clear instructions and consider additional amenities such as creamers, sweeteners, and stirrers, allowing your guests to enjoy a café-like experience from the comfort of their accommodation. Considering the more premium coffee isn’t everyone’s “Cup of Tea” it is good to also offer the instant coffee sticks for coffee’s on the run. Here is our favourite coffee, locally roasted in the Yarra Valley
Ensure a cosy night’s sleep
During colder months or in regions with chilly evenings, electric blankets can be a cozy and comforting addition to your accommodation. To be honest, when I’m travelling in the cooler months, the electric blanket is one of the first things I notice when walking into a bedroom – and it’s a bit of a relief to see it there. The ability to offer guests the option to snuggle up under warm blankets and adjust the temperature to their liking goes a long way to a positive accommodation experience. Electric blankets provide a touch of luxury and ensure comfort during their night’s sleep.
Incorporating these top 5 must-have amenities into your accommodation will undoubtedly contribute to a positive guest experience. The plush bathrobes, environmentally friendly soaps, variety of mixed cereals, premium coffee, and electric blankets mentioned in this blog post are carefully chosen to enhance comfort, convenience, and overall satisfaction. By providing these thoughtful amenities, you demonstrate your commitment to creating a memorable stay for your guests. Remember, it’s the small touches that make a big difference and set your accommodation apart from the rest.
