Hoteliers voice concerns over room-letting websites

Hoteliers are responding to the growing popularity of Airbnb and other room-letting websites by warning that the government's embrace of their disruptive business models will produce instability and jeopardise safety. According to a government-commissioned report by PwC, the so-called sharing economy will be worth around £9bn in a decade's time. But the British Hospitality Association is worried the government is biased towards digital marketplace businesses and that, swayed by the marketing power of big operators, ministers are planning to deregulate the industry. Jackie Grech of the BHA said the review and the government's support for it 'neglect the fundamentals' to support mainstream hospitality growth.
