Camelot Castle, United Kingdom: a Victorian treasure since 1899

For our customer Camelot Castle, their property goes far beyond a place of accommodation, providing a unique, historic offering.

Built in 1889, Camelot Castle is rich with Victorian & Edwardian history

The castle was built as a place of relaxation and elegance – traditionally enjoyed by the United Kingdom’s upper class. Today, Camelot Castle is enjoyed by customers across the globe – and not only this, it is also used as a private home to the Mappin family. “Camelot Castle is a very poise, Victorian castle with a restaurant, tea room and bar. We have 47 rooms of varying room types – from classic to luxurious.”

Sought after for years to come: even during times of limited travel & uncertainty

Because of its historical positioning and unique architectural design, people from all around the world have travelled to stay at Camelot Castle. Though of course, 2020 has been different. Cornwall’s usual large number of international travellers were replaced by domestic visitors that could not go abroad for holidays. Though, when interviewing Camelot Castle, we were pleased to hear that they have stayed very busy despite all the difficulties. “Because of our historic positioning, we usually focus a lot on domestic travel, so despite covid-19, we’ve been very fortunate. We are fully open now and we look forward to a very busy Christmas and New Years period.”

Integrating the traditional with the modern: how Preno fits seamlessly with Camelot Castle

As a well sought after property, the need for a streamlined property management system is a given for Camelot Castle. The General Manager tells Preno that they like to remain up to date with current technology. So not only do they provide a traditional, historic accommodation offering, they do so with modern operations that ensure efficiency and effectiveness. “We’ve been with Preno for almost two years. We learned about Preno when we researched connectivity with XERO. We found it to have a seamless connection to Xero and not only this, a triple system feature with Kounta, Xero and Preno together. This type of step up was very important to us.”

“Lightyears ahead of other software systems” – Mark tells Preno it was seamless from the start

Before Preno, Camelot Castle were using an out of date UK system that they found to be clunky, confusing and overpriced for what it was. “Preno is extremely reasonable in price and high value for money for what it is. Many other systems are clunky and it has become quite apparent that they are behind in design. Preno is lightyears ahead of other software systems. It is cloud-based, runs easily and is simple to use. It is the best system we have ever had.”

An elegant property paired with an elegant system

With the rich history & architectural brilliance of Camelot Castle, it isn’t a wonder that they’re thriving in the middle of a pandemic. And we couldn’t be happier to play a part in relieving some of the stress of covid-19 by simplifying their daily operations. At Preno, our mission is to guide hoteliers’ days with smart software, so they can continue doing what they do best – providing incredible guest experiences. While we can offer some refuge from admin and screen time, the team at Camelot can continue sharing unique stories, and shining a light on the art that is Camelot Castle.
