One important thing that a business plan will do for you is that it can also be used to either access loan facilities or you can use it to apply for grants, it can as well be used to source for fund from investors.
  2. Location Of The Hotel/Guest House, Lodge; Now that you have a business plan and have a little knowledge of the business you are getting into, you need to carefully choose your location, with the urban or rural areas, location is very important, a very busy area won’t be ideal to locate your hotel business.
  3. Decide On The Type Of Hotel You Want; By this I mean are getting a new hotel or you’re buying an already existing hotel, this will be determined by your intended capital
  4. Do a little search on other hotels, lodges or guest houses or motel, learn their method of operation, customer service and general hotel management.
  5. Get A Business Name And Register It; Another Important aspect of setting up a hotel business, usually this should be the first thing you must have included in your list of things to add in your hotel business plan. Get a catchy name, one that is easy to remember, an example is Sheraton Hotel, Barcelona Hotel, Ibro Hotel, Presidential Hotel etc, an easy to remember name will be nice since you also target visitors from other state, it will be easier to describe to people who might not be conversant with the new environment, so that can easily remember for direction. Now you have a good name, proceed with registering the business with Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), an agency in charge of registering new businesses, you can make use of the official CAC website to process the registration. Get permission from both the community especially if you want to build from the scratch, local government and state through relevant bodies, this is to avoid ruining your business when you eventually start operation.
  6. Business Structure; You need a very good business structure to successfully run your hotel business, this entails hiring competent people who will either work for you or hire a recruiting agency to help out with that, however, you will have to make specification as to the type people you wont to work in your hotel, the number of workers, qualification etc.
  7. Advertisement; Use fliers, word of mouth, social media, television and radio jingles to advertise your new business venture.

Some Equipment you must have in your new hotel;

  • CCT cameras
  • intercom telephones
  • Television sets
  • Security alarms
  • Power generators
