The Picton Harbour Inn is a 3-star Prince Edward hotel in the heart of Ontario’s newest wine and culinary destination. The waterfront hotel features 29 rooms and 3 suites, plus a restaurant consistently voted as best breakfast in Picton.
Why it matters: At the time that Scott and the new ownership team took over in 2015, the hotel operated completely on pen and paper. Scott laughs as he recalls the gigantic 3-ring binder that held all their reservations. “It’s a smaller property, but when we’re at full occupancy, we’re almost 1000 room nights a month. We needed a cloud-based solution.”
  • The staff was nervous to switch to software but found Cloudbeds’ platform interface to be very easy-to-use and straightforward. “Cloudbeds is not intimidating. It’s so user-friendly and anyone on our staff can jump in and use it,” says Scott.

Top 3 Core Objectives: Picton Harbour Inn aimed to modernize their reservation system, enhance occupancy through data-driven reporting, and increase revenue with strategic pricing.
  • Digital transition: Switching from a manual, pen-and-paper system to Cloudbeds' digital, cloud-based solution, facilitating efficient management of a high volume of bookings with a user-friendly interface​.

  • Optimized occupancy: Utilizing Cloudbeds' reporting tools, the Picton Inn effectively analyzed booking patterns and guest behaviors, leading to optimized pricing strategies and maximized occupancy rates​.

  • Increased revenue: Implementing Cloudbeds' Pricing Intelligence Engine allowed the Inn to make data-informed pricing decisions, automate tasks, and significantly boost revenue
