How important is the internet?

Well, we opened the doors to ’61 on Folly’ on 5th December,  although only got going in earnest at the start of 2016 as we figured out how to start using the internet as an advertising tool!  Since then we have been blessed with visitors from as far a field as Spain and the USA as well as the length and breadth of the UK.

We have wondered how guests found a bed and breakfast establishment years ago before the birth of Google, Trip Advisor and the like.  Even we can’t remember how we did it but we did it (Directory Enquiries? phoning the local tourist board?)  It is hard to imagine running a business or indeed even being a customer these days without this most powerful technological tool.  We have also learned very quickly that sites like Trip Advisor make you strive for excellence as nothing advertises better than word of mouth.  Ultimately it’s more meaningful to potential customers (an indeed us) if our guests take the time to write a complimentary review rather than here from us how good we think we are.

Many thanks to all our guests who have helped us along in our first few months in business through their custom and the reviews they have left us, both on Trip Advisor and in our Guest Comments book.

Erna and Dave.
