Hotel Reputation Management Service
Olive & Lake
The world we live in today, and especially so in the hospitality industry, is all about looking your best online. There are multiple websites where people will leave reviews about your business and for hotels, these are some of the biggest websites in the world. They include Booking.com, TripAdvisor, Google and more.
It’s never been so important to ensure that your online reputation is as good as it can be and is a true reflection of your hotel.
Your reputation will affect bookings, room rates, direct bookings and your overall property performance. When done well, having a good online reputation will help you to get more bookings, higher room rates and increased revenue.
It’s not just about the reviews you get, it’s about the service you provide to guests during their stay and how you deal with guest reviews after they stay. Get this right and you can expect your hotel to perform much better with online bookings.

Negative Review Management
Oh No, I got a bad review!
Bad reviews are not the end of the world. In some cases, they are a fair reflection of the service a guest received. It gives you the opportunity to make amends.
Explain what went wrong and how you fixed it as other people will be reading these too.
Sometimes, however, the review is unfair or it’s a fake review left by a competitor. We’ll investigate it and try to get it removed. We can’t remove all bad reviews, but we do have a good success rate.
Not all reviews are good reviews. Sometimes you get a bad review and it’s a good opportunity for you to address the issue and show potential guests that you care about their experience.
Replying to Reviews
Guest Interaction is Important
You should be replying to every review you receive on every platform you’re listed on including OTAs, review sites like TripAdvisor and even search engines like Google.
People read reviews and they read the review replies. It’s proven that replying to reviews will increase engagement, help you get more reviews and also increase bookings.
However, we know that replying to reviews takes considerable time and effort. So, we can help you speed up the process of writing professional, unique and personal replies using artificial intelligence to take the hard work out of it.
Increase the number of review replies you write, but without cutting out the quality.
Replying to reviews on all platforms will help to increase engagement, conversions, bookings and occupancy.
If you respond to at least 50% of your reviews, you can grow the number of booking enquiries you get by 24%. More enquiries means more bookings.
The more you reply to reviews, the more potential customers will engage with your business. If you’re engaging with your customers, you can sell more!
TripAdvisor found that you can increase your occupancy rates by as much as 7% if you reply to all your online reviews. People like to see that you care about customer services.
If you’re active on review sites, it encourages your guests to leave reviews about your business. If you’re doing a good job, then you want the world to know about it!
I Want Fake 5-Star Reviews Too!
My Competitors All Have Fake Reviews!
Of course, it’s known that some businesses have fake reviews. They might create the reviews themselves or even pay an unscrupulous agency to create great reviews for them.
However, both the platform and potential guests often easily detect these reviews.
Writing fake reviews is the best strategy to trigger false expectations, create guest deception and collect bad reviews.
Don’t fall into the trap of wanting fake reviews. It can be costly, risky and have a negative effect on your business.
We never recommend that you start getting fake reviews, and we will not do fake reviews for you.
