Resources from the web site of Well House Consultants on the subject of Hotel Facilities. We provide
Well House Manor is described as "business
accommodation" and not as a hotel - as it's
specially set up to provide the business visitor
to the town with what he needs - a large room,
en suite, the ability to come and go to his own
schedule, and internet access and soft drinks 24 x7.
And we don't provide those things the business man
does not need - such as a screaming baby in the
room next door, a noisy bar and disco downstairs,
and a strict landlady who imposes a 10 p.m. curfew!

I'm always delighted when a big group tackles a full breakfast buffet and it's almost all gone when they leave - just a little of most things left.
Of course, the better customer picture is the one which shows a nice full plate of freshly cooked pastries, as they were a few minutes earlier - and indeed ...
|4521||Should we get an AA or Visit Wiltshire hotel assessment?|
We chat / work with other accommodation providers around the UK to exchange experiences and best practise - and one of the Facebook groups was discussing the ranking / rating (star) system and whether it's useful to apply. Here's what I posted there - worth sharing:
We are not listed / inspected. We ...

Lisa emailed me a link to a web site listing dog-friendly hotels for our own future use when traveling. Now for Betty and Phil, a hotel that's dog friendly is a blessing, but by contrast Gordon and Sarah wouldn't want to stay somewhere that's overrun with other people's dogs.
So let's see ... where ...

Coffee from the Portland Roasting Company - who supplied coffee for the Oscars - comes to Melksham, Wiltshire, for a limited period. Specially imported, we have Sorano Expresso, and Costa Rican and Papua New Guinean beans ... and a little Panama Geisha, precious, they tell me.

|3924||The bedrooms at Well House Manor|
Last Sunday was... a Sunny day. And looking at the diary for Well House Manor, I noted that it was the last day until almost Christmas when all of our rooms were vacant during the day. So - what better chance to take some updated photographs?
Bedroom 1. A quiet room around the back of the property, ...

A beautiful, sunny morning ... and the first morning in a very long time that most of our bedrooms were unoccupied - so an excellent chance to take (and show you) up to date pictures.
Well House Manor is a small hotel providing ...
|3865||What makes Well House Manor different?|
Are all Bed and Breakfasts and Hotels the same? Far from it! As well as managing Well House Manor (with a very light touch as we have an excellent team!), I stay in many different hotels in my main job role as an IT trainer. I come back with good ideas, with an insight into interesting alternative ...
|3863||Five new fans at Well House Manor|
Late last week, we installed ceiling fans in four out of the five bedrooms at Well House Manor, and in the museum too. A little bit of air circulation can do wonders on a hot summers day, and can equally drive the hot air that's risen on a cold winter's day down to the bottom of the room. ...
|3831||Our Melksham Hotel is not quiet - but we are waiting to give you a quiet welcome. Big difference!|
"Are you quiet at the moment?" asked a couple who were staying with us as they ate their breakfast yesterday morning. A sort of concerned way to say "How's business in the recession". The gentleman commented that their car was the only one in our car park ... and he was staggered to learn that we were ...
|3552||Melksham Training Centre and Hotel internet speed - how does it compare?|
How fast is your broadband connection? I bench marked our connection at our Training Centre and hotel this morning, using theUswitch test site and the results are shown on this graph.
With fast broadband speed tests these days, you're not only looking at the speed of the connection to the premises, ...
Little did we realise in 2006 when we installed light fittings and shades at Well House Manor that took standard 60w fillament bulbs that we would be unable to purchase such bulbs any longer just five years later. And that what's on offer as replacements have different characteristics. All of the following ...
|3373||Another busy Week at Well House Manor ... pictures from the midweek |
Most businesses are seasonal, and have a peak time of day and peak day of the week too when they're rushed too, with other times of the day or week being much quieter.
With the school holidays now started, you might expect that we would have gaps in our training program, and that people would be away ...
|3308||Behind the scenes - setting up a cafe|
All the pieces of the jigsaw are coming together today and Well House Manor opens for coffees and croissants, and strawberry cream teas, in just over an hour. Everything seems to have come together well - the menu was planned several weeks ago and supplies ordered and everything has been taking shape. ...
|3296||Dog, hotel, Melksham, Wiltshire?|
This is Chloe. In the garden at Well House Manor - our hotel in Melksham, Wiltshire. Policy until recently was "no pets" ... but Chloe's owner was booked into another local hotel who accepted more bookings than they had available rooms, and Mr and Mrs Chloe found themselves booked with us ...
|3212||Well House Manor - a home from home for the business and leisure guest in Melksham|
I'm very proud of our team at Well House Manor, and probably don't say "Thank You" enough too them - nor let them know often enough that I notice that the little yet some important jobs that are slightly off the routine get done.
So why am I writing about staff, and showing you pictures of ...

If you're visiting a new part of the country, what better than to have a selection of magazines and newspapers that cover the area available, so that you can browse and see what's going on? So we leave a copy of the current edition of the monthly Wiltshire Life in each of our rooms, and the previous ...
|2559||Moving the product forward - ours, and MySQL, Perl, PHP and Python too|
I have just posted a "steady as she goes" message, welcoming the new decade but reassuring our customers that we're carrying on offering very much the same high quality courses, and the same high quality hotel rooms. But things can't stand totally still - they would stagnate, courses would get out ...

Oliver Says ... "Please sir, I want some more"
Saturday morning ... three rooms, 5 guests, and a much more relaxed breakfast service than the more rushed one during the week. And I do like those mornings where the fresh croissants - cooked just before the guests come in run out and we cook a further ...

I want happy customers ... which is why I turned down a golden booking opportunity a few minutes ago.
"Have you got a single room for tonight". Err - all of our rooms are double / twin, but we routinely let them as singles ... and we have rooms tonight, but we're full tomorrow night so it would be ...
