Accommodation: Business Confidence and Performance Monitor

Helping to build a picture of the tourism landscape in England at key points in the annual cycle, every year we ask around 300 accommodation providers and around 250 visitor attractions* to report their performance, as well as their expectations for the months ahead. This all feeds into our Tourism Business Confidence and Performance Monitor.

*Prior to July 2017, sample sizes were 500 accommodation and 300 visitor attractions.

We also include a number of different 'hot topic' questions to collect information about issues that may affect performance.

We produce detailed reports from this survey for the accommodation sector, with results broken down by accommodation type (hotels, guest houses and B&Bs, self-catering and camping & caravanning) and size. 

For summary reports across both sectors see our Tourism Business Confidence and Performance Monitor.

Previous Accommodation Business Confidence Monitor

Prior to the start of the current survey, a separate Accommodation Business Confidence Monitor had run since 2010. This was also a survey of c. 500 accommodation providers on recent performance and expectations. Reports from this survey can be found below.
