Stressful overbookings have become a thing of the past, and our occupancy rates are now constantly above ninety percent.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) January 20, 2016
Less than twelve months after enhancing its online strategy with Little Hotelier's top-of-the-line technology, Villa Orchard, a boutique bed and breakfast in the residential side of Frankfurt, Germany, has today revealed it ended 2015 with an occupancy rate above ninety percent and is already looking to maintain another year of filled rooms.
The seven-room property implemented Little Hotelier – an all-in-one hotel business solution for small accommodation businesses – in early 2015, and says the decision has resulted in both consistent, increased occupancy and efficiency of staff.
“Little Hotelier is an ideal solution for the automation of channel management and direct website bookings,” says Villa Orchard’s Owner-Operator, Joan Weber, who over the past year has synchronized the hotel’s online inventory and expanded its online distribution using Little Hotelier.
Little Hotelier comprises a channel manager, booking engine and front desk system for time-poor hoteliers to manage their small accommodation business using a single piece of technology. The product can be viewed on desktop and mobile.
“Little Hotelier enables us to reallocate quality time for higher-value activities to ultimately improve the level of guest satisfaction which, in turn, lays the foundation for additional business opportunities. Stressful overbookings have become a thing of the past, and our occupancy rates are now constantly above ninety percent,” adds Mrs Weber.
The bed and breakfast, Mrs Weber says, has also seen a sharp increase in the direct bookings it has received and lowered commission fees paid to third-party online travel agencies (OTAs).
“The reduction of our monthly commissions to OTAs is definitely a nice side effect.”
Speaking on her decision to select Little Hotelier for Villa Orchard, Mrs Weber highlights the convenience of having all of the components she needs to run her property from one cloud-based system.
She says: “The seamless channel synchronization offered by Little Hotelier is certainly at the top of our list. Equally helpful is the integrated direct booking technology and the virtual front desk. Managing rates and room inventory has become a piece of cake.”
