How to ensure your guests get the best night's sleep

When you’re hosting guests, you want them to get the best night's sleep possible and wake up on the right side of the bed, bright eyed and bushy tailed, right? After all, not getting enough sleep can have a huge impact on your mood and general wellbeing.

We’ve created a helpful guide outlining a number of ways that you can ensure that your guests get a great night’s sleep when they stay with you, and most importantly leave you a 5-star review!

1) The perfect pillow

There are so many pillows on the market to choose from and finding one to suit a number of different people can be difficult. Giving your guests a choice of pillow is the best way to ensure each individual will sleep well.

2) White sheets

White hotel bedding will put your guests at ease and calm their mood. A crisp set of white sheets look clean and fresh and make for an inviting place to relax. Everyone likes to slumber in different temperatures so providing a thin sheet underneath the quilt will give more control to the guest.

3) The Mattress

Your guests are going to spend most of their time sleeping during their stay with you, so it’s important to get the mattress right. Some people have trouble sleeping in a bed that’s not their own, so make sure to choose a super-comfy mattress and a quilted mattress protector to prolong its life.

4) Blackout Blinds

Some guests may need to sleep during daylight hours and blackout blinds or curtains are essential so your guest can sleep peacefully without the natural light disturbing them.

5) Bedside lighting

Bright, overhead lighting can stimulate the brain and prevent us from getting to sleep. In the evening, we need a softer light to wind down so choosing the right bedside lighting is essential. It’s best to go for a dim, warm light that is just bright enough to read a book.

6) Temperature

By offering adjustable thermostats in the room, your guest can create their ideal sleeping environment whether they prefer to be warm or cool.

7) Cater for electrical needs

Your guest will more than likely have mobile phones, tablets and other devices that will need charging. Many people will use their mobile device as an alarm so make sure to provide multiple charging points throughout the room and next to the bed.

Your guest wants to feel as comfortable as they do at home and a room that puts them at ease for a peaceful night's sleep. Following the tips above should guarantee your guests a relaxing stay and if the service matches the quality of the room, they’re sure to come back again
