Pros: Using this software is a real pleasure when you use it, you understand immediately that the person who has done it, knows very well what the work to manage a hotel is.
When you need some information or help, you understand that you are directly speaking with the developer, so you don't lost your time with technical service level 1, level 2 !!!
With this software, you can manage all your hotel (camping, apartment for rent, in fact, everything that can be rented ).
you can manage your hotel from the reservation of the client until his departure. Of course, you can put every day in his room when he takes some extra (drinks, ...
you manage your hotel directly on internet from everywhere in the world, the internet booking engine is very complete. You can connect your planning and import reservations from booking portal.
The first two years I was not very sure of the quality and seriousness of this company, so I took a dedicated server to put my site and the software on. But after, I understood that it was better for me to use my time doing my job and not playing with a dedicated server. So, I took their hosting service all included; update, booking engine,
After comparing several similar software, I chose this one for 2 reasons

1 °) It is software that adapts to your way of working and not you who you adapt to it.
2 °) The price is about 14 times cheaper than a software with the same function and same service.
It is easy to use and intuitive.

Sometimes it is hard to learn. Absolute priceworthy.

Pros: OpenSource so you can host it on your own server, this gives flexibility. Hosting with interface to booking.com is absolutely top, other products are much expensive. The monthly fee for another product is as high as the yearly fee for Digitaldruid-hosting.

Cons: Lack of documentation, no accounting available, only print invoices. Many good features can not be used because there is no documentation.

For our mid sized hotel its perfect

Pros: Anyone can use it even people with basic computer knowledge. It has many functions but you can choose to use the ones you really need. You can keep it very simple (basic reservation manager) or you can do more complex things depending on your need (statistics, stock rooms, POS).
If you are an advanced user you can even create your own reports, automated emails, invoices etc.
It works also as channel manager with Booking.com, Expedia, Octorate and sites with "ical".
HotelDruid also provides a booking engine to your website, customised to your need without any comition.
Totaly recommended and you can have it in 5 languages, depending on each user.
I am using this software many years now, I am very satisfied, it never crashes, and every year are new functions and updates.

Cons: Graphics could be improved but the way it now makes it very light and fast to any devices without using much internet traffic.

Overall: I have full control of reservations of my hotel (client, history, statistics), no double bookings, and I have saved money from the booking engine to my website.

I manage to everything, but sometimes it takes a lot of time, is geeky. OK for me, but usability co

Pros: price/performance is top. i evaluate the PMS market 3 to 4 times every year and haven't com across another product which offers so much at so little price. We totally depend on this as a small sized property and hope we can carry on as it is for long time.

Cons: Entry level is high, probably for someone without technical background too high. Once your over it, it's rock solid and stable, but you have to run after the capabilities and still after month of use still get surprised of what HotelDruid is capable of => Lack of documentation and training.

Overall: everything. We worked manually with shared spreadsheets before and this as a total mess. Besides that, HotelDruids gives a commune form to the work flows, no mater whom ever is partially treating the reservations.
