Here at the Whitehart Hotel, we care deeply about our guests and are always ready with the best offers and extras to ensure your stay is a luxurious, care-free experience.
That’s why we wanted to talk about direct bookings. We understand that whatever the reasons for your stay, you’re always going to want to secure the best deal and that’s why third-party sites can be appealing but there are many reasons why you should always book direct.
To help you understand the benefits of booking direct, we have compiled a list of the top-six reasons why booking a hotel room directly with a hotel is always the best option.
By booking direct you should guarantee an easy and secure booking because there are only two parties involved. When a third party (such as a booking site) gets involved, things can get messy and this is most commonly in the form of reservations not being processed. This will need to be rectified by the hotel on your arrival and can leave you with the wrong room or without any room at all.
More Rooms Available
A little tip when it comes to booking through a third party is that ‘sold out’ does not always mean a hotel is full. Often hotels will keep their best rooms free for their guests who book direct. Hotels also sometimes stop selling rooms to third-party sites on particular dates. So, don’t always believe a third-party and check the Whitehart Hotel’s website or call us on 01522 526 222 to book.
When booking direct, hotels are often more willing to help should you need to change dates or cancel. This is because the hotel is not bound by third-party agreements, while reserving a room through a third-party usually creates and locks in a contract for the stay which can restrict your and the hotel staff should you need to amend anything.
Best Rate Guaranteed
We often hear the biggest draw for booking through third-party sites is the price, as they’re usually represented as the cheapest available rates. Alas, this isn’t the case. Hotels will always price match any offer you’ve received elsewhere. Not only that, booking direct will also ensure we can offer you the best deal, with the best add-ons and extras at the lowest possible prices.
Best Packages Through Direct Booking
That brings us neatly onto our next point, which is that the best packages are only available when you book direct. If you’re looking for dinner, bed & breakfast or some other extras to make your stay at the Whitehart Hotel extra special, then booking direct is the only option. Not only we will know your exact requirements but we’ll also be able to provide the best possible price.
