Your latest instalment of articles and opinions from across the Hospitality sector.
In our last edition, we dared to hope that we were nearing the end of the beginning of the Coronavirus lockdown as a small number of countries started to ease restrictions. Now we see that Poland and Austria have gone one step further and permitted the re-opening of hotels to paying guests from 4 May in the case of Poland and 29 May in Austria. This is a great step in the right direction and we look forward to other countries hopefully following suit before our next newsletter. Of course, being allowed to open a Hotel is one thing. The challenge of operating a post-covid Hotel in practice whilst providing hospitality is another thing altogether. But we are sure hoteliers will rise to the occasion.
