Bantry Retreat - Bantry Bay, Cape Town

I started my boutique guest house in 2018 and after a bumpy start, I found iGEMS and switched to their management system.

What a revolution. The program is super simple to use but don’t let that fool you. The information that you get out of the program assists you in running your guest house in the most sophisticated fashion with documents reports and all the extra trimmings that took me completely by surprise.

And the best part? If you have a problem, reach out to John for personal assistance that is forthcoming with a smile.

We could not offer the service and commitment that we do without iGEMS

Thank you iGEMS
