What do you look for in a Bed and Breakfast or Holiday Accommodation?

Anders my husband and I have been running Yarra Ranges Country Apartment in Mount Evelyn Victoria as a  Holiday Accommodation for two years now.  Over this time we have continually  improved the facilities, the latest being adding a new gas log fire to enhance our cosy atmosphere.  We are always trying to guess what our guests need to make them feel at home.  The feed back is very positive and we certainly seem to be meeting their needs, but I thought that writing this blog might provide us with more information to help us understand what a variety of people are looking for.  Or what they look for when searching for holiday accommodation.  We would be very appreciative if you would join us in this discussion so, please add your comments to our website.

Cheers  Mary

About yarra

I run a self contained holiday accommodation set in the beautiful region of Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges, Victoria, Australia. The Yarra Valley is famous for its fabulous wines and Moet and Chandon has a subsidiary called Domain Chandon where they make a great sparking wine by method champenoise. A must try. The Dandenong Ranges are host to the most beautiful lush forests offering many beautiful walks. There are a number of villages with a variety of shops, cafes and restaurnts. The popular steam train Puffing Billy runs through these hills. Dutch settlers have successfully grown tulips in this region for decades and Tesselaar Tulip Festival attracts visitors from all over the world. Our apartment offers guests a cosy and modern home away from home base which accommodates 4 people.

  8. Hi There,
    I developed the first website for Yarra Ranges Country Apartment with Xara and cost $45. It worked quite well at first and lasted for 2 years. Then we were approached by Business Interactive who develops websites, it was certainly much more expensive but well worth the cost. We checked that we would still have good control over the content, photos and also provide the Blog facility. They put the website together as we were concerned our old website was not working well with Google and I don’t understand the inside workings of Google. They designed the pages but I wrote the content, and instructed what the pages should have on them and what we wanted. The photos were taken by myself. We are very happy with the website, it has already paid for itself and we can certinly recommend Business Interactive.
    Cheers Yarra
