In a 2022 report, Samantha Ward, the PwC UK hotels leader said: “After what has been a turbulent few years for the hotel industry, we are now finding a clearer picture of the new normal in the midst of economic uncertainty.
“Hotels need to get back to basics with a clear cut strategy that will allow them to emerge stronger and more resilient for the future. The latest disruption adds a new dimension to running costs but with the right management strategy, hotels can still perform at a consistent rate with many consumers still willing to experience all the sector has to offer.”
