I know that the definition of a “hotel” is (very roughly) a place that rents rooms on a daily basis, so if rooms in a HMO were rented out on a daily basis could the HMO then be legally defined as a hotel? If not, what is the difference?
Some hotels rent rooms on a long-term basis, so although they may officially be for holiday lets, there are cases where people actually live in hotel rooms, sometimes for many years, but the hotel remains a hotel, it does not turn into a HMO or hostel.
Apart from the massive advantage of not being subject to the Protection from Eviction Act, would there be any other advantages or disadvantages to getting a HMO recognised as a hotel? Perhaps by renting rooms on a day to day basis, rather than a weekly or fixed term basis?
Looking forward to reading your thoughts.
