It is always cheaper to book your hotel stay direct!
Booking a hotel room used to be a strenuous task, however with the use of modern day technology these can be booked from your phone, laptop or tablet with a few clicks. The online agents and booking sites have made information easily accessible, and allows you to find new hotel properties. They may save you time and effort, but you will end up paying more.
Online booking agents an third party websites make money by making a reservation on behalf of the hotel. The commissions that these intermediaries charge, end up on the customer’s bill. The rates offered are higher that booking directly from the hotel. Meaning, if you book direct you can save money.
On occasions, we give guests complimentary upgrades and priority of these are given to those who have booked directly. Also, if any rooms do have to be out booked (moved to another hotel) it is those who have booked through agents that are usually selected. Plus by booking direct you can ask the team for any special requests you may have. Even though they are not guaranteed, a note will be made.
The biggest benefit for booking directly is the opportunity for greater flexibility. In case of unforeseen circumstance, emergencies, cancellation and refunds then it can be much more complicated with an online agent. Either with refunds not being an option or a deposit being retained.
Special offers and packages again can only be booked directly with us, with the majority of the booking agents being bed and breakfast only. Booking directly with us you can enjoy an festive break, a golf break, a spa break, a cycling break or even larger bookings for coach companies and tour groups. The team can also help you book a 24 hour delegate package for conferences and events.
