It is very hard to find a suitable place to stay overnight if the travel group has more than four people. Typically, this is the case for families with children. Based on different searches on multiple booking sites online, the usual case is that the number of all available listings drops between 40-80 percent when searching a suitable accommodation for groups with more than four persons. Therefore, it is not rare that the accommodation is booked based on the possibility of accommodating larger groups instead of where the group would like to stay.
Tiina, the entrepreneur of Tamminiemi Cottages, tells: “The dining table is a must in the cottages because our guests cook their food themselves. As an entrepreneur, I am used to having a client base that varies greatly from the group size point of view. Without space-saving and functional furniture, we would have had to consider building more square meters one way or another. Tablebed solved the problem instantly.”
In many cases, the different extra beds have some problems, for example, they can easily break up in use, or they are not as comfortable as the normal beds. All these problems can be seen on the profit and loss statement of the business. In addition to that, many functional furniture – e.g. sofa beds – are rarely designed to look beautiful and easy to use. “Tablebed combines longevity, comfortable sleeping experience, beautiful design and ease of use”, Tiina describes.
What has been the best part of using Tablebed? “The travelers from Finland and abroad have been so excited when they see a beautiful and innovative product that is totally new for them. Tablebed has become an independent show when accommodating our guests”, Tiina laughs.
