Legally, if you have employees assisting you, you’ll  need Employers Liability, but you’ll also need Public Liability Insurance so if your guests are injured or their property is damaged and hold you responsible you have cover. You should also consider your buildings and contents, potentially your stock. You also need to consider insuring your income as this will evaporate overnight in the event your building has a total loss. If you have bookings, having alternative accommodation cover can assist when your building is not inhabitable due to an insured incident.
