For immediate release
Hosted Accommodation Australia, the national peak organisation representing owner operated, quality hosted accommodation today announces the launch of new corporate and consumer websites.
Corporate Website: www.hostedaccommodationaustralia.com.au
Consumer Website: www.australianbedandbreakfast.com.au
The organisation’s key role is to encourage and support small to medium accommodation businesses to provide an exceptional accommodation experience.
The new corporate website is packed with useful information for newcomers who are developing a business, online marketing initiatives for experienced operators, advice on selling or purchasing a business, links to the latest tourism research data and the ability for comment on current issues. Membership of Hosted Accommodation Australia enables secure access to numerous other resources including an active members’ blog, exclusive discounts and management fact sheets.
The new consumer website is unique in Australia as it is the only national website specific to this industry to exclusively list quality assured accommodation. Only business owners whose accommodation and service meet the quality standards required by Hosted Accommodation Australia are admitted to membership.
Listings on the consumer website include bed and breakfasts, farmstays, guesthouses, self catering cottages, houses and apartments. As distinct from holiday houses and serviced apartments, member properties are required to provide exceptional service and hosting commensurate with the type of accommodation the clients have selected.
Website visitors can view in depth information for each member property including multiple images, guest reviews and a map, as well as relevant regional and state/territory information.
Both websites utilise the latest technology and an increasing number of members offer a ‘Book and Pay Online’ facility.
Hosted Accommodation Australia’s Chairman, Ciaran Cryan is confident that the new websites showcase this important sector of the tourism industry. “They will provide both domestic and international consumers with choices in superb accommodation and give our members the effective support they need to manage and promote their businesses.
