As the systems are fully integrated there is no manual intervention, the bookings are automatically uploaded to the PMS in real-time and availability is adjusted accordingly across the channels.
The on-site training was excellent and the training schedule was executed with precision and professionalism. With ongoing support the team found it easy to implement and use the systems straight away to maximum effect. .

As a relatively new company to Asia, the hotel have found Guestline’s service and software first class. Even though they looked at similar products from other system suppliers, the team had no hesitation to recommend Guestline.
"Guestline’s solutions have allowed us to automate procedures and streamline operations, saving us time and money. We can control and optimise our rates effectively with the seamless two-way connection, essential for maximising revenue. As a result, we are already benefitting from the system by way of bookings and revenue in a relatively short period of time.

Even though they are a relative newcomer to the market, I would certainly recommend Guestline to other hoteliers without a doubt!"
