Why Use a Virtual Reception Service
Well, why not! If the big corporate hotels, with a reception team of 10+ need a Central Virtual Operation to support them in delivering exceptional service standards, then what about the smaller operations, the Boutique Hotels and B&Bs, after all you will have a smaller reception team but the same level of service to provide, right?
How many times have you found yourself halfway up the stairs with a guest’s heavy suitcase and you hear the phone ring? You know by the time you’ve reached the phone, the caller will have hung up (‘Basil Fawlty’ moment awaits!), but its ok, they’ll call back. Or will they?
Whatever the size of the hotel, we know our clients care very deeply about their guests, and so do we! That heavy suitcase you’re carrying could feel much lighter, knowing that the call was answered by a friendly, knowledgeable, professional receptionist who will answer your caller’s query, book their room, process the deposit, arrange for dinner reservations, organise a Champagne arrival and confirm all reservation details, on your behalf with the guest thinking they are actually speaking with your receptionist…
Can your hotel afford to miss one phone call, or more? In the day and age we live and operate in, if a guest cannot reach you the first time then there are many other hotels to choose from, modern technology means they can see a list of all hotels in the area with direct contact details, they don’t need to search very hard! Don’t give your guest’s to your competitors…
How do we work?
It’s simple, you will be able to forward ALL or Some (your choice) of your calls to us, seamlessly, to our team of trained, experienced hoteliers, who will provide a 5* service as if they were situated right in your very own hotel reception. We can handle all enquiries, take messages, make reservations plus so much more… the only thing we can’t do is pour your guest a drink at the bar or provide waitress service, BUT you can, knowing that your next booking is being handled with the utmost professionalism.
We customise our service to mirror yours; you decide when you need us and you decide what you would like us to deliver, we have 3 main packages to choose from but talk to us if you would like a more bespoke service, we will happily meet your requirements.
