Little Hotelier overview

What is Little Hotelier?

Little Hotelier is a cloud-based property and reservation management solution designed primarily for B&Bs (bed & breakfasts), guesthouses and small hotels. The solution helps accommodation providers manage their front desk operations, accept online reservations and manage property visibility across multiple listing channels.

Little Hotelier updates booking rates and room availability across various channels once a reservation is confirmed and automatically shares booking details with both the guests and property managers via email and text messages. The solution offers pre-built templates to help property managers design customised websites that can accept reservations online or via the property’s Facebook page. Hotel managers can also add images, videos, banners and property descriptions to the website page. The inbuilt reservation calendar gives visibility on room availability and the number of bookings. The activity dashboard tracks the performance of property listing across various channels and helps in managing other front desk activities from a single point. Little Hotelier lets hotel managers choose from a variety of templates to send guests pre-arrival and post-departure emails along with the invoice copy.

The solution currently supports more than 80 local currencies and languages and automatically adjusts booking dates across multiple time zones for managing international bookings. Property managers can also run ad-hoc reports, analyze their channel performance, monitor occupancy rate and track payments. Currently, Little Hotelier serves small and midsized property owners across North America, Asia and Europe. Sunlover Retreat, U.K. Plymouth House and Noosa Valley manor are some of its customers.

Helps on a daily basis to update and keep track of the rooms I have booked on my property without the need to invest in expensive software that gets outdated easily.

Pros
Easy of use, almost no training needed. Perfecto customer support. Always up to date with new settings for the users.

Cons
There is nothing negative about it. It was the perfect solution for the property i manage, helped on the daily processes.

Good reliable booking solution

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

Pros
- 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.

Cons
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.

Tech help is not available on weekends? I haven't been able to log in for a few weeks. That's bad!

Used daily for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

The only reason I wouldn't recco it now is because of the lack of tech support on the weekends. There's no excuse for the NO HELP on weekends. That's when we are the busiest and it's frustrating being hung out to dry with no help. What do you mean...your answering service says we are closed for the weekend....that's horrible to do to your customers who count on you to keep their balls in the air...I need to charge cards and get information and check for availability...Right now I can't stand this program.

Pros
I'm not saying anything above the software. I've read other peoples' comments and I am agreeing with them that it could be better. For me having 4 rooms and a private suite of 2 rooms...which means 5 total...and being the first online reservation program that I've ever used I was pleased...but no help on weekends? What's that about. That's nonsense. We in the wine country mostly have weekend visitors and that's when I might have a problem. I cannot sign in. I type in the name...then the password and enter and it acts like it's going to load and then reverts back to sign in again...I need to use my computer for this because the app doesn't provide the same capabilities. Changes cannot be made using the phone app. It's too small on my phone. It doesn't print out the same either. I can't get the cc# using the phone app. Can you? If anybody can provide help please let me know because I'm getting mad!

Cons
I haven't been able to access the program from my computer for three or so weeks. They've taken away the person who used to manage my account and she was a Gem. Return call right after her morning meetings...never let me hang. Even called me one time on a weekend. I thought can you imagine that....but not even a tech available on a weekend..my gosh...I can't use a program without assistance when I need it...could me once in a year but when you need help with running your business that is when you need it. Frustrated here in Plymouth, CA.

Why I switched to Little Hotelier for my small holiday stay business

Used daily for less than 6 months
Reviewed 2020-02-26
Review Source: Capterra

Superb training and help in understanding the system, developing it, using it. I would otherwise be using a set of spreadsheets, manually, to organize and record information crucial to running a small holiday stay business.

Pros
1) ease of use of Front Desk for bookings on my own website 2) excellent Channel Manager software, and Payment software, integrated with booking calendar in Front Desk 3) unbelievably friendly and helpful customer support and training video resources 4) modern mobile phone and tablet friendly software for users 5) innovative tie-in with Google maps and search

Cons
Inability to easily customize forms and templates for reports for self use as well as for customers . It can be done if one is comfortable using java script style code. But I'm only an HTML/css trained guy. I'd like to see something friendly like Wordpress uses - our own website is run through self-hosted Wordpress and its "templates" and customizability is excellent for someone with my skill set.

Little Hotelier could not have arrived at a better time.

Used daily for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

After spending one month with front office manager we added OTAs. Two days before our second month ended I had to get surgery on my foot. I am now in the 5th week of having to spend 7 weeks with my foot elevated 23 1/2 hours a day. Because of little hotelier I have been able to run the office and manage the OTAs from my bed and the couch. July is traditionally one of our 3 slowest months. Despite my Recuperation restrictions we closed July with 87.6 % occupancy. How many times do you get to lay in bed for a month and earn a bonus.

Pros
I like to be able to view the calendar wherever I am, in order to check availability . My wife and I also give it a quick look in the morning and plan for the day. Second I love the reports key. I can check income, statistics and break them down in so many ways in seconds. It is great to be able to rattle off numbers to my boss at the drop of a hat. Third I have been very successful filling up rooms by running last minute specials on the OTAs. It only takes a few seconds to advertise world wide . I can also cancel them just as fast.

Cons
I would like to be able to remove any reservation or payment in cause of last minute change. Once you check someone in you can't reverse it. I would like to have a master code to check credit card information instead of having to go to my e-mail for a new code each time. One other very small item that is just a pet peeve but I wish it would auto format the phone numbers.
