Marketing report on the 'Orchard Country Hotel' Marketing problems The marketing problems that the 'Orchard Country Hotel' have are; it is 3 miles away from Lyme Regis; families are not going to want to stay so far away from the main tourist place, they want to be in the main hustle and bustle of it all; its not a typical 'sea side' hotel and it attracts an older clientele. Strengths The strengths are; Rachel is very keen and enthusiastic and also, luckily for Rachel, the hotel had a good reputation before she took over management. It was only due to the death of the previous owner that it was no longer in business when she bought it. Weaknesses The weaknesses are; Rachel has no experience in the hotelier business and is over spending; the hotel is out of date and needs modernising and the customer list is not very big so she needs to start an advertising campaign to build on the list. ...read more.

The local radio people listen to the radio at home, in the car and at work. Advertise in November as another way of getting Christmas custom. There isn't much of a budget if any for advertising but I am recommending that �2600 is put aside for it. This is much needed advertising to help build on the existing customer list. Controlling and evaluating expenditure To find out if the advertising put in place is working and which ones are working the best and worth their money Rachel needs to find out from the customer where they heard about the 'Orchard Country Hotel'.
