An episode of the new RTE show ‘At Your Service’ will see presenters Francis and John Brennan examining the business ins and outs of Tramore B&B owners Avery and Niamh Coryell.
The Brennans, hoteliers from the famed five-star Park Hotel in Kenmare, arrived in Tramore in advance of the June Bank Holiday weekend this year to film the third instalment of the new eight-part series.
The Coryells, who run the Beach Haven House and Hostel (an eight room B&B and 31-bed hostel) were also in the middle of building six studio apartments during the period.
With the bank holiday looming, could the Coryells complete their building work before the busy summer season kicks in?
And could Francis and John help them upgrade every aspect of the business and find ways to improve their out-of-season trade? Well, you’ll just have to tune into RTE One on Thursday, September 18th at 8.30 pm to find out!
The Brennans will be giving ‘business makeovers’ to a selection of B&Bs, guesthouses and small hotels across the country that require urgent expert help.
During the series, both Francis and John draw on their experience of running a successful hotel and hope that they in turn can inspire others to “up their game and bring in new business”.
Their advice covers all areas – including staffing, catering arrangements and new menu ideas. They also conduct room inspections, advise about redecoration (both inside and out) and look for new ways to exploit the less obvious assets of each property.
Francis Brennan conducts the main inspection and devises an overall strategy, while brother John looks at money issues, explores new marketing opportunities and suggests ways to develop business in the future.
‘At Your Service’ features the Beach Haven on Thursday, September 18th at 8.30pm on RTE One.
