Updates from Avondata and the hospitality technology sector

New year brings new clients

It’s been an exciting start to the year here at Avon Data where we’ve welcomed a flurry of fantastic new clients as well as expanding our team.

We’ve recruited two new staff who will be joining us over the new couple of weeks – a developer to help drive forward the creation of our new browser-based property management system (PMS) system and an account manager to ensure we continue to offer the highest levels of customer service.

To celebrate, here is a round-up of the new clients who have chosen to move over to our market-leading PMS Hotel Executive already this year:

Butcombe Brewing Co

We have been working with Butcombe for a while and Hotel Executive is already installed at four of their pubs. Thanks to the success of our system at these sites, the Bristol based brewery is now installing Hotel Executive in two more of its pubs – the Bowl Inn in Bristol and the Bower Inn in Bridgwater, Somerset.

Liberation Group

This is the parent company to Butcombe, so based on our successful work with the brewery, Liberation Group has decided to install our PMS at the Old Court House in Jersey.

Sparth House Hotel

This family run hotel, located in a beautiful Georgian manor house sitting in three acres of grounds in Clayton le Moors, Lancashire. With just 16 bedrooms, Sparth House Hotel prides itself on offering a truly personal service for each guest. Their team is thrilled with their new Avon Data PMS. In fact, one member of the team at Sparth House quoted: “It’s like you took everything out of our old system that made our lives hard, and made them better”

The Cloud Hotel

This three-star AA rated hotel in Brockenhurst in the New Forest National Park was originally a set of four cottages before being knocked into one large house. Converted into a hotel in the 1920s, the Cloud has passed through several owners with Chris Legg and Stewart Willis taking over in December 2017. We had worked with them at their previous hotel, The Northfield in Minehead, so they were keen to bring our PMS to the Cloud as soon as possible.

The Bath Hotel

This family run hotel in the picturesque fishing village of Lynmouth, Devon, takes its name from the origins of the building as a Victorian Bath House, which attracted people from far and wide to bathe in the salt water that was pumped in from the sea. Currently undergoing a major refurbishment, the Bath Hotel now offers 20 elegant bedrooms as well as two bars – one for cocktails and one offering a fine selection of real ales and local ciders. We’re proud to be working with this great hotel.

Stanton Manor

Owned and run by Tudor Hopkins, this 23-bedroom Cotswold manor house hotel, three miles from Chippenham in Wiltshire, offers guests the ultimate rural escape. We have worked with Tudor for a number of years at his other properties – the Moonraker Hotel in Trowbridge and The White Hart in Wells – and are thrilled to have installed Hotel Executive at his latest venture, which we’re sure will be a huge success.

The Lion

This beautiful gastro-pub with 13 bedrooms in Wendlebury, Bicester, was bought by Brakspear late last year, taking the pub company’s portfolio up to 11 sites. Brakspear use Hotel Executive at their other pubs with accommodation, so when they added The Lion at Wendlebury to their collection, we were automatically tasked with implementing our system there too.

Dolphin Hotel

This family owned hotel in the pretty fishing village of Beer, Devon, has a rich history. Believed to have been a public house for more than two centuries, The Dolphin was a refuge for local smugglers in the early 17th century. Now a 23-bedroom hotel, we’re thrilled to be working with this historic property.
