About the property

Mari and Aubrey offer 6 double rooms all equipped and carefully decorated in a unique style. The Bed and Breakfast is also fully equipped. Olif offers a very varied breakfast with products from the region. Vegan, vegan and gluten-free options are also possible! On site you will find a tapas bar which serves Spanish-inspired "Welsh tapas" made with fresh and local products.

An intuitive site creator adapted to your structure

When we imagined the Amenitiz site creator tool, we wanted technology that was intuitive and easy to use. We're talking to hospitality professionals, not web designers.

"I found Amenitiz to be really intuitive with different resources on each page to help you to include the right content. I spent all day and night setting up the first few pages – but that included creating the content as well. It was really easy to use our own branding and make the posts look exactly the way I wanted them."

Creating an Amenitiz website is accessible to everyone. You can create your site in a few hours or take more time and build it gradually.

"I have a lot of content because we are a restaurant and bar as well as a bed & breakfast, and I wanted to include a lot of content to promote these aspects. It probably took me a week to design everything and put it on Amenitiz, but I think a single page for a bed & breakfast, a hotel, etc. would take less than a day if you already had all of your content and photos ready. In fact, I think you could probably do it in half a day!"

It doesn't matter what type of structure you have, or what kind of offers you make, you can promote them through your Amenitiz website.

"I also added a lot of custom CSS and widgets which let me include things like a table booking system and mailchimp pop-ups to collect people’s data and consent to receive our newsletter. I also added a selling page for vouchers, although I have since uploaded an embedded store from Ecwid that will help me to sell in-room dining options and takeaway food."

We support our daily owner, as their satisfaction is out priority

I like to find my way around new tools, so I created most of the pages myself, and I just needed help with a few things. Fréderic then called me to guide me in the rest and helped me connect with Booking.com. There were a few issues with room mapping on Booking.com, but they were resolved within 24 hours. I love creating pages. It is such a simple tool to use and you are only really limited by your own imagination. I have seen other beautiful sites powered by Amenitiz which are very simple and just as effective!

A tool with you everyday, to make your life easier

I use Amenitiz daily to check reservations and to help me plan my workload and that of my team. He was very helpful during the Covid-19 situation, and allowed me to get in touch with direct reservations and OTA to keep them up to date with what's going on. I am currently working on the development of a space reserved for customers so that we can try to make contactless transactions with our customers during this difficult period, in particular by creating a customer manual and placing more emphasis on promoting our hygiene procedures, and on the upselling of the bar / restaurant for consumption in the room. The beauty of Amenitiz is that you can add custom CSS / HTML to add third-party applications, so you can do just about anything.

It has simplified payment taking, customer management and provided a tool that allows us to manage room and restaurant reservations all at once. It has resulted in a large increase in direct sales, and the more we add to the website in terms of simplifying the process for the customer, the easier it gets. Amenitiz is a great tool - it won't be long before many more people use it!

An all-in-one solution that saves you

“It's simple and it allows you to get behind the wheel. If you have a little imagination, you can create something very high end and very rich in content for a fraction of the price you would pay to a developer. And the best part is that the booking engine is an integral part of the site, so people don't have to leave your site to make a reservation. You also get a channel manager and an asset management system. This represents a much better value for money than other solutions, and I have not found anything that combines all these essential tools in one system. "
