Hotel and Leisure Management

Picture this: your hotel climbing the industry ladder, drawing in more revenue, heightening its reputation. Hotel and Leisure Management Consulting is an integral part of the services we offer at ESA Risk and, believe us when we say, you will see results.

Opting for management consulting can be the determining factor in the success of your business. Whether you are new to the industry or already own a hotel, ESA Risk’s expert hospitality operations consultants can advise on profitability and provide auditing services for a range of product categories.

Our consultants have a proven track record in recovering distressed hotels and increasing their profit margins, as well as advising new investors on location strategy and management according to size and budget.

We work with a variety of clients and can offer tangible benefits:

For existing hotels

Current hotel owners or managers may require an operational overview followed by implementation of new strategies to increase revenue. We make improvements to your hotel that both improve your services and ensure effective cost saving. We also monitor distribution and pricing strategies.

For acquisition

We can assist you with acquiring properties and identify how to turn those assets into profit. Our consultants will help you spot opportunities for growth, whether that be by location, room pricing margins, or in relation to local competition. We work with asset managers and management companies, as well as service departments, to ensure successful acquisition and implementation.

For new hotels

Whether you are an investor or a prospective owner, we can do the work for you. Our consultants provide reports containing market research and feasibility on prospective properties, as well as operational plans to get you up and running. If needed, we can provide contractual management services, too.

For hotels in urgent need

Our consultants have worked with insolvency practitioners and lenders in matters of hotels in distress. If your hotel is struggling with cashflow or business has become stagnant, we can implement business recovery strategies to restructure operations and identify any problems in current management. Our aim is to recover your hotel and maximise profitability through improvement and effective budgeting.

Our expert consultants

Our team includes hospitality operations consultants, revenue management specialists and experts from related fields including security and risk management.
