Accommodation Business Monitor

At key times of the year, VisitEngland asks a sample of c. 500 accommodation providers and c. 300 visitor attractions in England to report their performance in the most recent period and their expectations for the coming months, as part of our Tourism Business Monitor. We also include a number of different “hot topic” questions in the survey to collect information about topical issues and any other areas that may affect performance.

All types of accommodation are included in the survey (hotels, guest houses, B&Bs, self-catering, and caravan and campsites), as are a mix of establishment sizes and the region located.

A seperate Accommodation report is produced each wave, and these can be found at our Tourism Business Monitor page.

Prior to 2012

Prior to the start of the current survey, a seperate 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.
