Hotel Rescue is on a mission… improve the preformance of accommodation businesses.

From increasing occupancy and revenue, to driving online visibility and conversions, to implementing profitable pricing, we work with Hotels, Motels, B&B’s and Serviced Apartments to make this happen. Hotel Rescue follows a unique nine step framework to help operators maximise the potential of their business. In a rapidly changing environment that often leaves owners and managers perplexed and wondering how to get the most out of their opportunity. We achieve amazing results through education and training without technology overwhelm or interfering in the day to day running of their property.

The Hotel Rescue Story

Hotel Rescue was born out of a shared passion for Hotel performance between Michael Harper & Andreas Palmqvist.

Following a highly successful engagement together with a large Australian Hotel chain, then a continued friendship for some years, before both recognising the needs of the small to medium hotelier, to understand and implement more strategic and up to date concepts into their hotel business plan.

So, we set to work and began documenting all our thoughts and ideas. All the tools we had developed, the many spreadsheets, concepts and templates. We mapped our guest experience standards, our sales strategies, our growth mechanisms, our revenue management plans and we pooled our knowledge in the rapidly changing digital marketing space. We then took this to market and on boarded our first coaching clients.It was with these clients that we were able to implement, test, measure and adjust our theories and models as needed. Twelve months later, after much development and polish and achieving some really solid result of over 50% growth, we arrived at a point where we knew we had something to take to market, and here we are.

Occupancy ElevatorWhat we came up with, is what we now call the 80%+ Occupancy Elevator. A nine module framework providing the foundation for all our online education and face to face consulting. A virtual hotel business coach to give accommodation operators the ‘smarts’ to market their property, sell more rooms, grow their profits and connect with their guests in the modern hospitality domain.

It is our hope that you learn how to maximise the potential of your business and enjoy the rewards for the hardwork you no doubt deliver in this demanding industry.

“We help independent Hoteliers, grow their revenue by up to 50% in 63 days increasing stress or workload”
