C Me Online, a leading web design, web development and e-commerce agency for Laois businesses (Portlaoise, Stradbally, Portarlington etc.), proposed to provide a full online booking and online reservation system for the client, offering multiple tariffs, seamless integration with availability calendar on Booking.com, (as well as many other online booking engines) online payment integration with both PayPal and Stripe. The system developed for the hotel has all of the functionality included with the most popular online hotel/property booking and reservation systems.
As any hotelier knows, online booking engines (eg Booking.com) charge approx 15% per booking. Implementing the C Me Online system allows hotels to take bookings online, via their own website, ensuring 100% of room revenue is retained.
Furthermore, the system has a full front desk/reception management system, allowing guest check in / check out, manual room charges and guest management, for sales and marketing purposes. The system is inexpensive and guarantees 100% of online booking revenue to be paid directly to the hotel, thus eliminating the requirement to be listed on multiple hotel booking websites.
Full organic SEO, website administration and ongoing support services are provided, as well as website hosting.
In March 2020, the hotel closed down, owing the Covid-19 pandemic. New owners are currently preparing the hotel to re-open later in the month, under its new name, The Town Hotel. C Me Online Ltd. designed the logo and are currently redeveloping a new website for the hotel incorporating online bookings with availability calender integration with Booking.com. www.thetownhotel.ie
