404. support nicht gefunden

3.0 vor 11 Monaten

Kommentare: Am Anfang hatten wir ein gutes Gefühl, denn die Mitarbeiter sind freundlich und professionell.Beim Onboarding sagte uns ein Mitarbeiter freundlich aber relativ lieblos, dass die meisten von uns erkennbaren Funktionen nicht genutzt werden können. Scheinbar war er auch etwas planlos.Der Support antwortet seit Wochen nicht auf Emails. Wir sind bereits auf der Suche nach einem anderem System.

Vorteile:

Cloudbasiert, intuitiv, freundliches Onboarding

Nachteile:

- Zahlungen können nicht rückwirkend aufgezeichnet werden- man kann den Kunden keine Angebote schicken sondern nur Reservierungen- Saisonpreise sehr umständlich einzutragen- viele Funktionen, die sich nicht nutzen lassen- Suche von Buchungen nur möglich bei Angabe des Zeitraumes- super viele Bugs- grauenhafter Support (20 Min. Warteschleife am Telefon und meine Probleme waren doch nicht gelöst)- Email werden nicht vom Support beantwortet- Backoffice total unstrukturiert und lieblos

Awesome software for a micro operation.

5.0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: It's been great since the outset. Excellent customer service/support. It's clearly a company that cares about what it does. I think they would fare even better if they were to promote some of the features/apps they offer.

Vorteile:

Ease of use. Integration with the other apps available. Flexibility of the view in the calendar. The reports and analytics. And there are tons of features I would love to explore but don't have the time.

Nachteile:

Not much. I'm really pleased with the recent upgrades to the mobile app. The only feature I'd like to see is the ability for me to colour code my calendar based on the incoming channel. That way I would have a quick visual confirmation that tells me at a glance where the reservations are coming from and would quickly indicate to me how any specific promotion is doing depending on the channel. If the reservation also could have an indicator of what promotion was used, that would be even better!

Simple and easy to use

4.0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: After using the software for just over 2 years now I am still very happy with Little Hotelier - we are a basic room only 2* hotel and the software is perfect for us. I have researched other companies and had demonstrations but Little Hotelier although not the cheapest, is good value for money and has helped streamline our business and saves time. It is so simple to use. During Covid we have struggled with our with having the finances to pay the fees. The company have really helped and bent over backwards to help us.

Vorteile:

Very easy to use with clear uncluttered screen layout. It was the first time we used a CMS as the hotel had not really got into the 21st Century. The integration and change was so simple and the support from Little Hotelier was amazing. The Reports section is so helpful with the day to day accounting Very rarely have any glitches or problems with the software. I am pleased that we now have a choice of 14 and 28 day calendar view

Nachteile:

The invoices are unnecessarily complicated and take up too much paper. Guests do not want a copy of their invoice that is 3 pages long if they have stayed for a month. Obviously we email invoices if requested but guests do comment and say it is too complicated. If a guest cancels through our OTA, and they fall within the free period they are not charged, but Little Hotelier does not remove the cost so it comes up as an outstanding amount. It would be good to have a button that marks a guest as a no show so we can track how often this happens through the reporting (also we still take payment for the room)

Hi Catherine, We loved getting your detailed review and amazing feedback! You've really encapsulated everything Little Hotelier tries to be for small busy customers like yourself and we are so glad to hear it's really helped you streamline your business and save you time. Thank you for your suggestion regarding simplifying the invoices, they are currently designed to show a very detailed breakdown of nightly cost and extras added to the booking, so long stays can stretch out the invoice format, however this feedback has been added to our product team's development board for consideration. Thank you again for your partnership over the past 2 years, we hope to continue supporting you for many more. Warmest, Jessica

Cancelled free trial and still charged

1.0 vor 2 Monaten Neu

Vorteile:

Nothing about it. I decided that other options were a better choice and cancelled during the free trial using the web contact form.

Nachteile:

The little hoteliers free trial is a scam. We didn't like the software and requested to cancel free trial via the online form. I have been invoiced and payment illegally charged from my account. I just called them and explained that the online form was completed in the trial period, I once again confirmed that I wanted to cancel, and asked for funds to be refunded. I am yet to receive a confirmation by email and no refund. They even followed up with a phone call in the trial period to which I confirmed that I had already cancelled and this customer service rep did nothing to confirm the cancellation had taken effect. I have a second invoice that has been sent to me that is now also in dispute. Customer service was terrible and asking for reference numbers when their online cancellation form did not give one. I have read previous warnings about this company and you need to believe them. DO NOT DO THEIR FREE TRIAL AS YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CANCEL! [sensitive content hidden] STAY AWAY

Kommentare: I am extremely happy with Little Hotelier. Their customer service is excellent and they are very helpful in helping when I have an issue and extremely patient and polite.

Vorteile:

It has everything I need, reports, customisable emails, guest registration forms and invoices. An app that at a quick glance I can easily see what I need to as well as do bookings. Integration with my website and OTAs.

Nachteile:

I found the set up a bit confusing , but I am not good at technology and am new to the industry, so it could be me and not the system.

Not a suitable product for small hostels

3.0 vor 9 Monaten

Kommentare: everything EVERYTHING is an $$$ add on. and thats aside from the fact that it doesnt handle the channels like expedia and booking.com well. we got no end of double bookings,bizzare price changes.. and they have split the software into so many different parts to increase revenue. for example, you cant even send your own email to a guest, only a template, sms is ANOTHER package and more money. Their so call 'self check in' extra package called Guestjoy is nothing more tha a glorified mailchimp front end, and cant even do a simple task such as check in a guest, they excpected us to use a guest check in form and then MANUALLY mark guests as checked in on arrival. Sirvoy is a much better package. Dont wast your time and money with Siteminder, Little Hotelier and Guestjoy.

Vorteile:

fairly nice gui and layout. easy to move rooms in calendar

Nachteile:

everything is a paid add on, every feature requires another package and more money. its madness how they have done this. they could have one really decent product, instead its split into so many parts its unusable.

Good reliable booking solution

5.0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: We wish that LH doesn't make the software too sophisticated because it wouldn't help.

Vorteile:

- The service for setting up this software was outstanding. We came from an other nonfunctional very expensive software solution and there was no problem for the customer service to take the database over to the LH system. It is very easy to handle.

Nachteile:

There are still some little software improvements to do. Invoicing to travel agents, direct email from the system to guest about the booking and changes they make along the way. Mapping could be easier. Too many nonsense emails from the support.

Difficult set-up-Good value after that

4.0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Initially it was horrible and we began looking for alternatives. Over the past 18 months we have come to rely on it as a foundational part of our success.

Vorteile:

LH covers 90% of the tasks we need to complete in an effort to run the hotel. It is stable and reliable. It is very affordable.

Nachteile:

Set-up was not intuitive and initially customer service support ineffective. Subsequent to launch we found the development team does not talk to the sales/customer support team so developers roll out beta versions of enhancements before the bugs are worked out and without telling customers of the changes. Initially I found the customer support team poorly trained with limited communication skills. I sensed they were also frustrated with their inability to satisfy customer needs. in the past 18 months I have not had to lean on customer service as frequently and when I do, the service is good.

It tends to ask for the password every other day

Antwort von SiteMinder

Hi Christine, Thank you very much for your feedback. We are so glad to hear our support team is doing their best to assist you. For your security and that of your guest's data, we have a multi-factor authentication process that ensures your password is updated every 90 days. This is common best practice in any online system. If you haven't updated your password at the 90 day point, it will prompt you to reset, which is easily done yourself in seconds. This may be why it's asking for a password. Once you reset it, there should be no issues moving forward. If this isn't the case, please do reach out to our helpful support team who will help figure out this issue quickly. Thank you again for working with us, Christine. Warmest, Jessica

You asked for my opinion

2.0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: barley enough to do the job, and for context, we are a seasonal 19 room golf lodge, and it barley gets the job done.

Vorteile:

The customer service team is extremely helpful

Nachteile:

As the manager and sole operator of the system with the phone app I do not have the ability to make a reservation, change the length of a stay, build out a quote. or any of the most basic operations of the job. the phone app is only a window to view what is happening with the system and does not let me alter anything in the system. A broken tool. The reporting functions are EXTREMELY limited, we only have 19 rooms and i have to compile multiple reports just to compare year to date revenue. A broken tool. As the sole operate during the winter season i built the Lodge Email to receive the customer notifications and my business email to receive the management notifications. the customer notifications are full of vital information that the management notifications do not have, like the actual date the guest is going to be staying with us. Again, a broken tool.

Cancelled free trial, charged and won’t refund

1.0 vor 6 Monaten

Kommentare: No trial without credit card.
Cancellation ignored. Card charged and agree to refund but don’t… and then they charge you again.

Vorteile:

Beware of little hoteliers free trial. I wanted to trial software, but even requesting via chat to do so without credit card they refused. Eventually I folded and gave my card. Was not suitable for our purpose and requested to cancel free trial. I have been invoiced and payment debited from my account. I called them and explained, confirmed I wanted to cancel, and asked for funds to be refunded and confirmation in writing via email, which they agreed. I recieved no confirmation by email and no refund. Now disputing charges with bank to force a refund. And to my shock, I can’t believe I just received another invoice and they are trying to withdraw funds again. Surely they can see there is no activity on the platform. I have been lied to and now I’m riding a scam roller coaster where they will not stop debiting my account. This is a warning to all, having tried many pms systems, this is the only one that won’t give you a demo without a credit card. Expect a fight before it’s over because they are taking your money regardless.

Nachteile:

Setup was a disaster. Setup page contralto froslze and would not move forward. Support team would not reset account and I had to totally start again. And it’s a good basic system, but lacking the features we require.

Review of LH software

2.0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: I do not see any benefit from this software, I'm sorry but that is my honest opinion.

Vorteile:

I really don't have anything positive except costumer service is fairly easy to get a hold of but then most of the time they don't know answers to my questions.

Nachteile:

I am very disappointed with LH. I was trying to input previous guests into the system and customize emails for marketing. There was no way to do this without creating a reservation, then cancelling it. This caused issues with guests calling because they got a confirmation email and then a cancellation email shortly after then there is no way to customize emails to guests. I had to copy and paste into gmail to do what I wanted. Very time consuming and counter-productive. This system is only good for creating reservations and cancelling them.

Beware: Track your payments

3.0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Unsatisfactory. Still waiting for accounts payable that are due over 90 days.

Vorteile:

Looks good and easy to use. The software is much better than some of the hack channel managers available.

Nachteile:

The problem is the service behind the software. After the initial period of on-boarding, there is no responsive account representative, it is very difficult to get technical support and impossible on the financial end. We experienced double bookings due to glitching of the channel manager and booking engine. Technical support failed to take responsibility, simply blaming the OTAs . On the financial side, Siteminder (the company behind Little Hotelier) has taken deposit payments from customers on our behalf and failed to on-ward transfer them. Accounts are due over 90 days. Advice: monitor all your set up and financial integration very closely.

Hi Angela, Firstly, I am so sorry that we had not suitably resolved your outstanding issue with payments and that you felt you have not received the highest level of support to resolve the issues promptly. I have personally escalated this to our senior payment specialist, who has been in touch. Unfortunately this issue involves Stripe, therefore we had to work with them to resolve the issue that occurred. I am pleased to let you know the issue is resolved on our end, and the funds should have been promptly returned. We thank you for your continued patience as we worked with Stripe to get this resolved. If there's anything else I can do, please let me know, Angela. Sincerely, Misha Stemper

Kommentare: I acquired this account through the previous owner of the business and the transfer of ownership and setting up the payment portal took weeks to get done and tons of follow up calls on my part. All the tech support people have been very nice, but it's been an exhausting process getting set up. I hope that now that things are up and running, I won't have as many issues.

Vorteile:

I like that it maps to lots of booking options, and keeps a comprehensive calendar of all bookings.

Nachteile:

It's not very user friendly. I've built websites before and this tool is not for technical novices. It's very involved with multiple apps and platforms that take a lot of time and navigating and help desk support to figure out.

Hi Dana, Thank you so much for sharing your feedback. It's great to hear that you're finding our breadth of booking channels deep enough for you, and also that the calendar is helping you easily keep track of all your bookings. With regards the website feature, we're sorry to hear that you're finding it a little hard to navigate. With the ready-made property-specific templates, it really helps hoteliers get a site up and running quickly. Once you have your server information, domain details and content assets available - our team are there to help you set everything up rapidly. The results are worth it, and as always, our team are always there to help with your complete set up. Your feedback is really appreciated though - as we continue to find ways to make it even easier on customers like you to get it up and running. Thank you very much for the feedback, Dana. We loved hearing your thoughts and our team are reading this as we speak for insight! Warmest, Jessica

Whispering Pines review

5.0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: I like using Little Hotelier

Vorteile:

It is very user friendly and easy to use

Nachteile:

I find it hard to make a reservation on the mobile phone when I am out. I usually use a desktop which is very easy to use. I don't really like using the mobile phone anyway. It is much easier on a desktop .When you are making a booking and you put in a discount or a percentage. It doesn't take it off the extra people amount.

Vorteile:

Easy to use, great customer service. When hiring Channel Manager and Booking Engine everything slows comfortably and easy.

Nachteile:

It's limited options for housekeeping control and reports. And it doest not has the ability to connect to a restaurant POS which forces hoteliers to acquire a second system .

Dear Sofia, Thank you for your review of Little Hotelier! Our team work hard to deliver a great product and customer service experience to you every time so we really appreciate your positive feedback. Little Hotelier does include Housekeeping and a suite of reports, however if there are specific things you are looking for which we don't have I encourage you to let our customer support team know, they are available 24/7. On your suggestion to connect a restaurant POS this has been flagged with the product development team and they will certainly take it into consideration for future development. Thank you again for your partnership and feedback. Warmest, Jessi

Program in development, loads of bugs, no service

2.0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: Thouh I started out being very happy with the software, it's ease of use and interface, soon more and more bugs popped up. For months it automatically closed our channels as an example. Though the type of room was not sold out yet. This is the last thing you want, because it means you are literally missing out on bookings, revenue! More and more problem like these popped up and, since I am a great fan of start-ups, we were patient. Lately no more replies to our bugs are given, I am still awaiting reply to 2 e-mails of more than 14 days ago. In my opinion this is ridiculous. You can be a just starting up company and experiencing problems, but not talking to your existing customers for weeks as they are haveing trouble using your system is NOT DONE. We're making a switch to another program soon, everyone here knows what an hassle that is. Save yourself the effort and don't start with Little Hotelier.

Vorteile:

Interface

Nachteile:

Service, price
