Star Castle Hotel’s plan for market and product
development
The Star Castle Hotel has some plans of expanding its
activities and market size in the future. Being a family
run business, the hotel has several restrictions and
limitations in case of expansion of both the market and
services (Pizam, 2021). The hotel is planning to carry out
extensive marketing to attract potential customers from
inside and outside UK so that its operations can be
expanded into more islands of the country. The
marketing plan of the hotel includes broadcast, web,
and direct marketing which are intended to encourage
the tourists to come and enjoy their long-buried, joyful
and lively selves at the Star Castle Hotel.
The hotel is also considering to expand its service line by
partnering with several wineries and dining services
such as the Mermaid Inn and Holyvale vineyard (Pizam,
2021). This will help the hotel to offer more
personalised and unique services to its customers. The
hotel also plans to establish its own vineyards to serve
the guests with its own winery products which are
ought to make the customers feel more satisfied.
The hotel is running extensive marketing campaigns in
Facebook, Instagram and other social media which are
primarily focused on the nature and experience that
people can get by visiting the Star Castle Hotel (Modern
hotel tecnology trends for hospitality industry, 2019).
The hotel is trying to go above and beyond to bring
change in its previous business model. It is not using it’s
above the line marketing strategy to market its future
plans for expanding the hotel, however has been
focusing on inclusion of a diverse range of guests and
staff to promote diversity in the Scilly.
The hotel however does not have any current market
development plans due to the losses incurred during the
pandemic situation. It might consider establishing its
branches in some other islands of the greater United
Kingdom when it finds it feasible and profitable to do so
(Pizam, 2021).
The goals of Star Castle Hotel
Past operations of Star Castle Hotel
The Star Castle Hotel was not like its present version
always. The castle was built in 1593, being the centre
piece of a military garrison, which was built at the
orders of the Elizabeth I to protect defences of England
after the planned invasion of Spanish Armada of 1588
(Rahimi and Gunlu, 2016). After the end of its
tempestuous history, the castle turned into a hotel in
1993. However, the hotel got its life when the Francis
family took over the property in the 2000’s and Robert
Francis along with his wife are still roaming in the helm
(Rahimi and Gunlu, 2016). But most of the day-to-day
operations of the hotel are now overseen by Robert’s
son and his daughter-in-law.
The hotel however had developed a centralised
planning system throughout the years watched over by
Robert Francis and his wife and operated by his son and
daughter-in-law. The centralised planning system of the
hotel was helping it run its operations in the prepandemic world while attracting potential customers at
the same time (Modern hotel tecnology trends for
hospitality industry, 2019). The hotel incorporated
digital reservation systems through the development of
a website that connects it with its customers online.
In the pre-pandemic world, the hotel was seeing
constant growth owing to the stunning customer
experiences that it provides to the customers. Because
of the unique customer services, Star Castle Hotel had
become one of the top choices of hotel destination to
the customers. The hotel offered unique events for the
customers to enjoy such as photography holidays,
autumn gateway, gourmet wine weekend, winter storm
watching and similar events (Villa-Clarke, 2022).
Present Operations of Star Castle Hotel
The Star Castle Hotel has a rich history of its
development and operations. However, its present
operations are more effective and efficient that helps
the company to complete its activities effectively and
efficiently. The hotel has included many new facilities
to effectively serve its customers. One of the unique
facilities of the hotel is the heated indoor swimming
pool. The pool offers the guests to relax and enjoy a
perfect unwinding of busy day island hopping. The
tennis court is also a wonderful facility which is
located at a few strolls away from the hotel and
handled by the staff of the hotel efficiently to satisfy
the customers (Modern hotel tecnology trends for
hospitality industry, 2019).
As guests of Star Castle Hotel, they get the
opportunity to use the golf at most south westerly
course in England to have refreshing views and
experiences of golfing, subject to availability. Boating
is a significant part of the visit of the guests at the
Star Castle Hotel. Thus, the hotel has options of
serving the customers with an excellent sea safari
where the guests can enjoy an exhilarating two-hour
trip with shipwrecks, birds and seals etc.
Other unique operations of the hotel are horse riding
and Scilly cart riding throughout the island. Dogs are
also welcomed at the hotel where they can also have
a pleasant stay in the garden rooms and suites. In the
pandemic situation, when all hotels were closed, the
hotel had to stop its operations to prevent the virus
getting into the Scilly. However, with the ease of
restrictions, the hotel adjusted its operations with the
new normal situation such as adopting virtual
operating systems, booking and reservation systems
and contacting with the staff without physical contact
(Villa-Clarke, 2022).
