Research Bed and Breakfasts
Research bed and breakfasts - Industry Information
Research is vital to any planning process. In order to research bed and breakfasts, a number of research institutions have studied this sector of the accommodation industry, but we still lack a complete overview of its scope in Australia and the impact of societal trends on its future. Hosted Accommodation Australia will work with researchers to build an accurate profile of the industry and provide comprehensive data as a resource. In the meantime, we will list research studies of intereste as they become available.
If you are looking to research bed and breakfasts and are seeking information about setting up an accommodation business, Hosted Accommodation Australia publishes a Guide for new operators. This has information about the tourism industry at the federal and state levels; mandatory licensing information and a section on equipping accommodation, marketing and managing the business including setting tariffs, writing a marketing plan and wording a cancellation policy. You can purchase the Guide here
If you wish to research occupany levels in your locality your regional or local tourism organisation or accredited Visitor Information Centre may be able to assist.
