East Kent College's Yarrow Hotel chooses Guestline for operational and training purposes
The latest addition to the Guestline portfolio is The Yarrow Hotel in Broadstairs, Kent. The newly refurbished Grade II Listed hotel offers a bar, restaurant, conference and banqueting facilities as well as 28 rooms, which includes five luxury suites. The Yarrow is a unique concept, as it is owned and operated by East Kent College which provides a range of hospitality courses to students.
The Guestline systems installed in the fully operational four star property will be used for commercial and training purposes, giving hospitality students unprecedented access to a live commercial system, and the best possible training experience using the market leading property management software, Rezlynx PMS.
We have opted to use the property management system supplied by Guestline to launch our next phase. The Guestline solution covers every aspect the hotel needs while also being the best system for students to use while learning. That ensures the students will have the required skills to meet the needs of any future employer.
The purpose of the new luxury hotel is to provide a dedicated base for training in the Travel, Tourism and Hospitality industries, providing skills that will be vital to support the economic prosperity of Thanet and East Kent.
Shane Godwin - Director of Commercial Operation
Guestline was selected during the construction phase following extensive market research. After talking to a range of Guestline clients which use the Rezlynx system and have strong professional knowledge of the software, Guestline was the ideal choice.
I am very pleased and excited that Yarrow Hotel, East Kent College has joined the portfolio. With more and more hotels selecting Guestline, it is great to see students learning and using Rezlynx PMS on a daily basis which will prove valuable experience within the hospitality industry. Hands on experience with an innovative PMS solution will ensure they have a great starting advantage when it comes to finding employment within the industry. This is a unique offering and one I am looking forward to watching succeed.
