1. Premium Bedding

When guests stay in your hotel, they expect to drift off into a blissful night’s sleep in clean and comfortable bedding. According to a study by The Sleep Council, an uncomfortable bed is the main factor in disturbing sleep.

With this in mind, investing in high-end bed linen should be a top priority. Supportive pillows, seasonal duvets, and the softest linens will all play a role in ensuring that your guests sleep in the optimum comfort.

It also pays to invest high quality bed linen that will stand the test of time, without loosing its quality or softness.


2. The Changing Seasons

Temperature is the key to a great night’s sleep. As night time approaches, melatonin is released into the body to help us lose heat. When we settle down into bed, our temperature starts to fall even more rapidly, which helps us to fall asleep.

Although everyone is different, the ideal temperature for a bedroom is thought to be 16-18 degrees Celsius.

Providing seasonal appropriate duvets will help ensure that your guests are always the right temperature as they sleep. As a general rule of thumb, the higher the tog rating, the warmer the duvet will be. The majority of duvets range from 4.5 – 13.5 togs.


3. The Five Senses

Research has shown that the fives senses play a significant role in sleep experience. So, when it comes to creating a blissful sleeping environment, you must address all five senses – touch, sight, sound, scent, and taste.

From choosing the very best bed linen, through to giving your guests the freedom to control the temperature of the room with the use of the latest technology, there are lots of ways to create a memorable experience that will please all five senses.

Other ways to ignite the senses include spritzing the room with relaxing scents, masking any noises such as traffic outside using the right sound insulation, embracing calming colour ways, and ensuring that your mattresses are perfectly firm. Pillow sprays with hues of lavender and chamomile a great way to help your guests relax.


4. Adjustable Lighting

Exposure to bright lights can make it difficult to fall and stay asleep. This is because, when we see light, our bodies assume it’s time to wake up.

Adjustable lighting is important in any sleeping space, helping the body to wind down and prepare for a restful night’s sleep.

With this in mind, you should invest in lamps and lighting that can be adjusted based on your guest’s bedtime routine.


5. Pillow Menu
