Carillion plc have been working with Michels and Taylor over the last 5 years. We have found their extensive in depth knowledge of the hotel industry invaluable in providing the Company with advice ranging from analysis of trading performance, advice on all aspects of operational performance, achieving improved owner returns through to brand selection. We would have no hesitation in using them again.
M&T have always provided a highly professional service with great attention to the fine details. It’s a real pleasure to work with such a well-informed team. Their advice has added real value to our business.
As our hotels all carry an international brand on a contingent lease basis, we needed a specialist hotel team that fully understood revenue and yield management in particular. M&T’s unique structure allowed us to use their extensive Top Line team to add real value to the performance of our hotels and to this day, have never let us down.
Some asset management companies, especially those not run by hoteliers, couldn’t care less about the guests and staff – they are only concerned about the return. They don’t spend money on maintenance and they squeeze the asset. If they truly understood hotels, they would know that the GM – needing to make a financial return – needs to be focused on looking after the guests.
However, there are some asset management companies, such as Michels & Taylor, that do understand how a good hotel should be run.
Having worked with Michels & Taylor for a number of years, I have found them to be both insightful and pragmatic, with an excellent understanding of what levers need to be pulled in order to optimise the profitability of a hotel, and also how to positively add value to owner/operator negotiations in order to reach a mutually beneficial outcome.
M&T has been, and continues to be a great support to the Queensgate team, advising us on both our brand and capital investment strategies. I certainly recognise the value they have created for us and their undoubted expertise in the hotel sector.
