Zsolt Balogh, the owner, has worked in hospitality for over 30 years and has spent the last few years trialing different PMS software, before joining Hop Software a year ago.

“I’ve worked with several PMS systems over the years; Opera and Welcome Systems. I was paying an incredibly high amount for the system itself and even commission on direct reservations. During our busiest period booking wise, when I received the monthly commission bill, that’s when I decided to look for better value for money”

“With 30 employees, on-boarding, training and support was just as important as cost. Hop visited us at our hotel and also provided online training – it really helped us make the most of the platform features. Knowing support was there for us 24/7, helped me sleep at night!”

“By streamlining all of my hotel systems, I’ve saved between £6,000 – £8,000 with Hop. My monthly cost is sensible and unlike other systems I’ve used, Hop does not charge me commission on my bookings.”

“I’ve spent the savings on improving my hotel!”

Zsolt Balogh, Owner of Atholl Arms Hotel

Zsolt has made the most of the Hop Yield Management feature: “I don’t want to worry about selling our rooms underpriced. This feature has allowed me to forget about setting room rates and focus on refurbishments”.

Being able to trust your hotel software is expected, but this isn’t always the case. This is why Hop Software have built a platform, that no matter where you are in the world or if your wifi or power goes down, you can access the cloud system on any device using 4G. To date, Hop has never had system downtime.

The platform was built by hoteliers, so they know only too well how hard it can be to pick your first, or next hotel software. The team at Hop made it their mission to give you access to all their powerful platform features, with no hidden charges.
