MEDIA REVIEWS
"'This excellent 'how to...' book should be a first investment for anyone considering running a self-catering business. It is also essential reading for those already running establishments, with the chapters on 'keeping up standards' and 'maintaining the momentum' being particularly valuable. There will also be a readership for those who simply need to know how self-catering works, like those new to the Trade, and tourism students. David Smythe, Chairman, Association of Scotland's Self-Caterers 'Practical and down-to-earth guidance for prospective holiday cottage owners.... The perfect guide for people looking for a change of lifestyle and hoping to establish their own holiday cottage business.' Catering Manager"
