Who we are

When they told GuestRevu’s founder it was impossible to run an international software company from a small seaside town in South Africa, he said “watch this”. Today, GuestRevu is an international market leader in guest feedback technology, and rated No.1 in the world for three years. We are the passionate and driven underdog of hospitality tech software that knocks the big boys out of the park. 

Our reputation management software collects reviews of the client’s hotel from multiple review sites (Tripadvisor, Booking.com, Google, and many more) and consolidates them into one dashboard so that hoteliers can easily spot trends in feedback, reply to reviews, and keep on top of their online reputation. Our survey software collects guest feedback about their stays, and brings this information into the same dashboard to improve their guest experience, and highlight problem areas.
