With a year under our belt as Bed & Breakfast owners, there are several things we learned in 2015 that we want to improve for our guests in 2016. As we approach the spring season, guests will notice some changes to the house and to our online presence.
At the house, we are almost done adding a shower in the Bright Star bathroom. Last year, the room only offered a soaking tub. The Arabia room is being connected to the adjacent bathroom. These two projects are scheduled to be completed by March 18th.
Online, as we announced earlier, we have partnered with ThinkReservations to drive our reservation system. With this, we now have the ability to offer gift certificates specifically for DeBourge Guesthouse. We are now also promoting gift certificates from Bed & Breakfast Inns of Missouri (BBIM) more prominently. These gift certificates can be used at over 65 bed & breakfasts across the state of Missouri. We have also partnered with bedandbreakfast.com as another portal for guests to find DeBourge Guesthouse.
In bedding changes, we have changed the bedding in the Bright Star Room. No longer do we have bedding with birds on it, and instead we have a more contemporary pattern. We also added an antique wardrobe to the room. In the Lewis & Clark room, we can now combine the two twin beds into a king bed upon request.
We are excited to share these changes and others with our guests this spring and throughout 2016. We are always looking for ways to improve our guest experience, and we would love to hear your feedback. Some of these ideas were first provided by our guests, and we are happy to bring them to life.
