Should I put a pool table in my hotel?

A good hotel gives patrons somewhere comfortable to stay the night, but a great hotel gives them somewhere to stay in the daytime too, and this is where entertainment like coin-op pool tables, fruit machines and quiz machines can play a part.

Most good-sized hotels have a dedicated bar area, or at least a bar-restaurant, yet these can go largely unused throughout the day, with the exception of the main mealtimes and a late rush on drinks by patrons returning from other establishments.

By introducing familiar forms of entertainment, such as pub fruit machines and quiz machines, as well as coin-op pool tables that can be used by guests of all ages, you introduce new revenue streams, while also making sure that your customers see your premises as somewhere they can spend more of the evening.


Profit-share pool tables

Our profit-share pool tables are a low to no-risk way to add some extra entertainment to your hotel bar or lounge and mean that all you need to provide upfront is the space where the pool table can go.

By operating on a profit-share arrangement, instead of paying a monthly fee to hire a pool table from us, instead you pay us a percentage of the money it takes – and keep the rest for yourself.

This gives you a direct income stream from the pool table itself, but the total financial benefit of profit-share pool tables can be higher than that, thanks to the indirect revenue streams like food, drink and other on-premises spend by guests who might otherwise go elsewhere.


Hotel pool tables help your popularity

Hotel pool tables don’t have to just be for overnight guests – if your bar area offers a more traditional and familiar pub-style environment, you’re more likely to get walk-in customers just looking for a drink or something to eat.

Again the entertainment you offer is crucial to engaging with passing trade, and each option has its own benefits. Fruit machines and quiz machines can make sound, but generally it is their bright lights and animated graphics that appeal.

Hotel pool tables are unique in the noise they make – the satisfying thud of balls dropping into pockets, which can help your hotel to sound busier and generally more alive.

If you have a space or can clear one just by moving a few tables around, a hotel pool table is well worth considering as an addition to any entertainment or leisure area – call us today on 0161 870 7777 to find out more about our work with hotels and the best pool table for your premises.
