Top internet accommodation resource site, English Inns, celebrates ten years of being in business.
Online PR News – 07-July-2009 – – Historic-UK.com, The History and Heritage Accommodation Guide, recently celebrated the 10th birthday of its very first internet accommodation directory, English Country Inns. The website was launched 10 years ago featuring only five country inns, and over the years has grown to include close to 1,000 traditional inns and country house hotels, offering bespoke accommodation for late availability, seasonal and weekend breaks.
Deborah Johnson, Managing Director of Historic UK Ltd and founder of English Country Inns states "It’s hard to believe that ten years have passed so quickly. Not only have we survived the dot com bust, the Foot and Mouth epidemic and Mad Cow disease, but we have almost doubled in size year on year." The website has found that many of the original customers are still using their services 10 years on!
Deborah also reflects on the lighter side of the business. “We’ve had some funny moments to look back on, such as the e-mail we received from an American tourist who had booked a holiday during the Mad Cow epidemic, wanting to know whether he should bring his own meat with him from the USA!”
After ten years on the Internet, English Country Inns is going from strength to strength. So what is their secret? What sets this website apart is its ability to provide special seasonal and weekly promotions/features. Unique information and pure dedication to providing the best service to both member inns and the public has enabled them to be at the top of their game. Features include seasonal breaks away, weekend breaks, romantic breaks, and offers on late availability breaks in some of the most beautiful parts of England, the theme being quality heritage accommodations that encapsulate the true historical value of England's hidden beauties and breathtaking sites.
