RUNNING AND MANAGING A BED AND BREAKFAST

Do you want to run and Manage a Bed and Breakfast? Then our B and B course is ideal for you.

Fed up with your job?
Looking for a career change?
Taking early retirement or redundancy?
Longing to work for yourself?

You need our B and B course!

Let us help you achieve your dream.

You are possibly thinking; “Why do I need to do a course? Anyone can run a B&B”.  That is not the case.  What ever your job you would have received some form of training.  That applies to running your B&B.  Banks offering mortgages look for commitment and upfront investment in your time and money.  By attending one of our courses show the money men that you have commitment.

We want you to excel at running your B&B, being mediocre or leaning on the job should not be an option.  Dealing with the public and handling complaints about you or your business can be difficult to deal with.  Cleaning your B&B is not the same as cleaning your house.  Cooking an evening meal for friends is not the same as cooking a breakfast for numerous people wanting different things at different times. W can help you with all these things and more. Giving you the ability and confidence to run your B&B like a well oiled machine.

Based in Carmarthenshire, South West Wales, Coedllys is very accessible from the M4. We are less than 3 miles from the A40 at St. Clears.  Our course is residential and vocational.  Arrive at 3.30pm on a Monday, departing after breakfast the following Friday morning.

The cost includes accommodation and full board.  Being a vocational course, you are not just sitting in a classroom, which is important,   you will also learn how to clean a room thoroughly to very high standards with hands on training and how to juggle breakfast times, preparation and cooking too if you wish.

We have been running our very successful 5 Star GOLD Bed and Breakfast for 20 years. We also run a Self Catering Holiday Cottage.  Many of our guests return time after time, year after year. 78% are by recommendation or repeat bookings and many, I am pleased to say, have become good friends.

If you are looking to run a B&B from home or buying elsewhere we can help you.

Running a B&B can be an excellent business opportunity, even in hard times; IF you know what you are doing.  There are many pitfalls.  Competition is fierce.  Mistakes costly, in both money and time. Especially when you are at your most vulnerable, as a new B&B owner.  More and more discerning people are turning away from hotels to use quality B&B accommodation.

We are able to offer an excellent tried and tested B and B courses in luxury surroundings at affordable prices.

I also act as an inspector for a popular B&B Guest Accommodation Brochure and am therefore able to give advice from an Inspectors prospective.

All our courses are tailored to individual needs.

If you had any question or would like further information, please call Val for a chat on 01994 231455 or e mail  coedllys@btinternet.co.uk
