The condition of the property and its upkeep are important, as guests immediately form an impression of the business, based on the physical appearance of a venue. If guests were to arrive at a venue with untidy surrounds, they may begin to scrutinise the rest of the operation in more detail. On the other hand, a well-maintained environment will have a positive influence and be instrumental in providing a more enjoyable stay.
