We’re just finishing our holiday in Luxor Egypt and have been staying at the fabulous Mara House hotel. Mara House Hotel funnily enough is run by the inimitable Mara herself. A fantastic Irish lady with a gift for making people feel welcome in what can be a tricky place to feel welcome.
Mara House is one of the best independent hotels in Luxor, if not the best. I say this because it has all that you could want in a hotel in a foreign and at times strange place. It is relaxing, spacious, comfortable and very inviting. But the best thing of all is Mara. She welcomes you like it’s her own house and treats you like a personal house guest.
So that brings me to this blog post which isn’t really about Mara at all but how a small independent business like Mara House can survive using the web amongst a sea of large international competitors.
More to follow.
