Many small hotels are now trying to stand out from their competitors, with so many choices on the market; you need to make hotel guests pick your hotel over others in the area. Many people have to travel out of necessity, but choosing where to stay is often driven by preference. You need to get the edge by giving your guests a reason to choose you; a reason to come back again and again.
One of many ways to make a guest choose your hotel and keep coming back to you is by having the most up to date and quality food machines that will impress your guests and make your stand out from your competitors. There are a lot of food-related machines that can produce tasty food, whilst making your job easier and impressing your guests at the same time.

Your hotel needs to offer guests a quality coffee machine. Many B&B’s and hotels in the UK offer some form of hospitality tray that varies to a degree. These trays could include a kettle, tea bags, milk cartons, instant coffee sachets, sugar sachets and sweetener sachets. This morning survival kit may be what we have now come to expect, but if you are able to offer your guests a quality coffee machine that can give them a tasty morning cup of coffee that isn’t instant coffee, you will be pleasing your guests and standing out from your competitors.
Ice cream machine
Having an ice cream machine that gives your guests the option of having a sweet treat, especially on a hot summers day, will help you to stand out from the rest of your competitors. You will be able to offer a variety of flavours, and homemade ice cream containing fresh fruit is tastier than commercial fruit ice cream, simply because you can achieve that ‘just picked flavour’ by using really fresh fruit in your recipe.
A slush machine, similar to an ice cream machine, is another nice way to treat your guests to something cold and sweet when it’s hot. Quirky and cheap food machines like this not only provide your guests with tasty beverages to consume, but they also make you stand out for your competitors and earn you a bit of extra pocket money if there is a lot of demand! Always keep an eye out for cool ways to impress your guests and make them want to come back to your hotel whenever they are in town.
Vending machines are becoming increasingly attractive to hotels around the country as they are a cheap way to earn some extra money whilst allowing your guests to purchase a quick snack instead of having to trek to the local corner shop or supermarket. You will be able to provide a wide variety of snacks and drinks including chocolate bars, crisps, nuts and fizzy drinks for the convenience of your guests.
