Pros: We have been working with the AbodeBooking's team since desktop days in 2003. We cannot say enough great things. This software works and if it's not going to work or be a solid system then Abode doesn't do it. It integrates perfectly with Vend and Xero and paths are clean, secure and fool proof. When we have had problems with things such as channel management STAAH! Customer support representative has been very helpful in helping us sort out problems and make the right decision for the business. All in all a great system. Would highly recommend for

Cons: This is not all singing and dancing. This is actually a really great thing. A steady flow of improvements are made to the system that are thoroughly tried and tested. This software will do everything you NEED in a PMS and not everything that everyone else does.

Absolutely great, easy to use!

Pros: So easy and simple! Works well with Vend

Cons: none

Overall: Our previous system was too slow, there were a strict number of details we had to enter and we just spent too much time putting them all in, when most customers at holiday parks are walk ins we needed a fast Pos integrated system so that we could check people in and out without any fuss. Abode booking was the best solution we could have found, was very fast moving between bookings and the main calendar, very efficient and easy to use calendar, we love to see all our bookings all a month ahead, it gives you a perfect overall view of whats coming up. Setting up our system was incredible it was just before christmas and Gavin and the team were so helpful, it couldn't have been a more smooth transition.

Pros: Easy to understand and works for all our needs.

Cons: None

Overall: Just a phone call and all assistance is provided for all needs, we were using another programme
which caused us no end of trouble with no back up.

Recommendations to other buyers: If anyone is looking for a easy to use booking programme go for it.

Pros: Simple to use/ learn, web based and secure. ties into existing channel manager.

Cons: limimted marketing functions

Overall: We considered many platforms on which to run our Holiday Park (100+ sites/ cabins etc). Abodebooking came through as a clear leader in the market, their overall value proposition and passion won us over from our more established/ traditional system. After 18months of use we highly recommend both their product and their team.

Recommendations to other buyers: The support team are excellent

Very User Friendly

Pros: Beautiful stylish interface which is easy to use. It's really customisable too which is great.

Cons: There are still a few features that we need that are not available, but we have been able to find work-arounds. Particularly split folios on a booking, as often the room charge is being billed back to an agent or run on a virtual card, but the guest needs to pay for incidentals. In order to present the guest with an invoice that does not reveal the agents nett rate we need to make the room rate zero and add it back in after.

Overall: It's a great product and suits our 20 room boutique hotel very well. Easy to learn and easy to use. We swapped from Clarity and the simplicity of Abode was a huge sigh of relief. We quickly found we could produce all the same reporting and statistics we needed for our daily systems. The staff are friendly and helpful.
