Out Of Eden – Toiletry Offerings

Out Of Eden – Toiletry Offerings

Following the uncertainty surrounding Brexit last Summer, more and more Brits are keeping a tighter grip on their wallets when booking their holidays this year. Savvy stay-cationers are expecting more bang for their buck and guest expectations of the nation’s B&B’s are forever on the increase. 


Fuelled by online review sites such as TripAdvisor it is now easier than ever for unhappy guests to tell their friends at home about the tacky tea set or terrible toiletries they’ve been welcomed by after check-in. Although not the be all and end all of a happy stay, customers are increasingly putting more and more emphasis on the quality of the freebies thrown at them by their chosen B&B.


The quality of a B&B’s toiletry offerings can speak volumes about the approach the establishment has to the rest of its operations. Although it may save on vital operating costs, providing punters with a bargain bin body-wash will only have your customers considering what other corners are also being cut. Similarly a lather of a luxurious and well presented shampoo in their post arrival shower can instantly put your guests in a great mood and have them smiling until the end of their stay.


As well as the millions of British families choosing to forgo former family hotspots such as the Canary and Greek islands in favour of a break in Britain, the fall in the pound has also encouraged hoards of international tourists to our own little island. There’s nothing that foreign tourists crave more whilst visiting Britain, than quintessentially British products. Embracing these will really drive home the quirky and homely atmosphere that the Great British B&B is famous for across the world. 


In addition, choosing an exclusive range of luxurious toiletries such as those by British brand, Cole and Lewis of London to your amenities, helps to impose a high end appeal to your guest bathroom. Cole and Lewis is exclusively stocked in handy 30ml silver collection bottles, 50ml and 300ml bottles by Cumbria based national hospitality supply company Out of Eden.


Mike Gannon, Managing Director Out of Eden, said: 

“We are increasingly seeing our customers coming to us and requesting our premium products…Today’s guests are more shrewd than ever about who they spend their money with and this is being reflected in accommodation providers, who are looking to get a leg-up on the competition through the quality of the toiletries they’re providing.”


Although a guest bathroom well stocked with luxurious toiletries and amenities may seem a trivial place to start, for many a guest it is an exciting introduction to the accommodation experience and one of the very first parts of the room inspected upon arrival. An upgrade from basic to boutique toiletries can go a long way to reinforcing and positioning the image of your B&B to one of a luxe British bolthole.
