Abstract

A time series principal components analysis of midweek-weekend bed occupancy rates in 266 hotels in England in 1984 and 1985 identifies four components of occupancy performance reflecting differences in occupancy levels, seasonal and weekly variations and length of season. Regional patterns of occupancy performance are also identified and these have significance for investment and marketing decision making within the industry. In particular, a clear link is established between occupancy levels and overseas visitor arrivals and the opportunities and dangers for the industry stemming from this relationship are discussed.
