A Quantitative Analysis of Serviced Accommodation Providers in Scotland over the period 2003 to 2007

Research output: Working paper

Abstract

The aim of this report is to provide a profile of the serviced accommodation subsector
in Scotland for the period 2003 to 2007, paying particular attention to the
period 2005. It presents a quantitative insight into the composition and dynamics of
this sub-sector, using a spreadsheet database compiled for all identifiable serviced
accommodation providers in Scotland. The purpose of the database is to provide
material to support research into the online practices of serviced accommodation
providers. The data was gathered from four main sources or directories. This was used
to calculate the population of serviced accommodation providers. This provides a
benchmark to evaluate other findings, including the significance of the different
directory channels. An analysis of the database allowed the compilation of 73 tables
on a variety of issues, which are presented here. This provides an insight into the
heterogeneity of serviced accommodation providers, the geographical distribution of
this heterogeneous group and the manner they have engaged with VisitScotland and
associated organisations, e.g. visitscotland.com.
