Cottage accommodation booking software

  HighTower 12:17 22 Oct 2008

I'm looking for a third party accommodation management application that allows for web booking. It would need to be a system based on a PC so that telephone bookings can be taken but I also need it to integrate with a website. My customer has around a dozen properties let out on a weekly basis.

I'm also considering writing a php / mySQL based solution but would rather use a proven system from a reputable company who can also provide the support.

Thanks all.

Yup! There's a lot of choice there and they all promise the earth, hence I'm looking for a personal recommendation.

In a previous life I used to manage a hotel, so I'm well aware of the pitfalls of a poorly designed system. Good hotel systems are very expensive, but worth the money. However, I'm looking for something on a far smaller scale and am a bit out of the loop these days as to what's available and who the main players are.

Hi, We have a gite business and we are thinking of using something called 'ResMania' - should return from a Google search... pretty sophisticated and ideal for small quantities (i.e. small numbers of cottages etc).
Any thoughts, love to hear them..
