Complaints of visitors
As a visitor of you usually make a reservation request at a B&B, after which the owner informs you of their availability. Many owners find this system very convenient and familiar. Lately however, we have been noticing that visitors no longer think this is the perfect way. They are disappointed when they find out that a bed & breakfast has no rooms available. We are receiving complaints about this every day.

Not waiting for a definite answer
Today’s internet user proceeds efficiently. As soon as they’ve made a choice, they immediately want a definite answer. This is how it works in web shops, and on many booking websites and it’s become a standard. Having to wait for an answer is out of date. The impatient internet user rather clicks further, to a B&B that does provide up-to-date availability information. This is today’s reality: a trend should not ignore.

Many reservation requests
As always, our purpose is: to get as many visitors on as possible, so you- the B&B owner – will receive many reservation requests. The website is popular, and of course we would like to keep it that way. We can do so by providing reliable, up-to-date availability information. For that purpose we’ve designed the reservation system with the availability calendar. Especially for everyone with a mention on

Every request is a hit
The reservation system provides a clear overview of all your received requests. You can easily respond to these requests, in six languages. The visitor can see on which days they can or cannot stay in your B&B, and thus make an aimed reservation request. You no longer have to turn down requests: every request through is a hit.
