These forces are the one that will determine the level of competition we are likely to face and the profitability of our strategy. High Competitive rivalry The competitive rivalry for Gravie and Co Hotel is high. On Bondi beach, there are more than ten mid-sized companies like ours; this is likely to be a challenge regarding our pricing and returns (J. Turner, 2013). According to Porter, when buyers have control over the prices in the industry, the business has no choice but to consider it (Önören, Arar & Yurdakul, 2017). Gravie and Co hotel strategy is to include customer return discounts and affordable prices for multiple services. Low Bargaining Power of Suppliers Most suppliers tend to have a higher bargain on their products because they control the stock and performance of an industry, which is the case for hotels in Bondi, Sydney (Mansour Ghazi, 2016; Manjunath, 2014).

We have made it our policy to create and maintain healthy relationships with the existing suppliers including providing them with stakeholder tariffs. With this package, a supplier will be accorded the same package but at a subsidized cost. According to Archdale (2014), tourism is about media presence and advertising. Recommendations • A revision of the current accommodation rates from $150 to $130. This change will attract more customers and increase room occupation to our target of 99% daily. • A comprehensive training program including customer relations management (CRM) should be mandatory. Members of staff will gain useful insight on how to deal with customers thus increasing our customer retention capacity Kryukova, E.
