Can I respond to a guest review?

You have the opportunity to reply to all reviews that contain approved comments*. Any response you make is shown on your page, right below the review.

Replying to a review lets you interact with guests in a positive way and appeal to new customers. The feature helps provide balance, letting you express your viewpoint. This not only benefits you but all visitors to our website.

In the case of a negative review, it’s best to see it as a chance to turn it into something positive. How you respond to a negative review says more about your property than the negative review itself. Look for potential opportunities to improve the experience at your accommodation for future guests.

Here are some helpful tips for responding to reviews:

  • Be personal: Don't just write "Thank you" in response to a positive review. Take the time to draft a personalized message. This shows that you care about each of your guests.
  • Less is more: Keep your responses concise and to the point.
  • Originality is appealing: Make sure every response is unique and specific. A genuine reply is key for maximum customer satisfaction.
  • Change a negative into a positive: Be genuine and look for potential opportunities to improve the experience at your accommodations for future guests.
  • Double-check your work: Take a little extra time to make sure you've written what you intended. We can remove a response if necessary, but it's always better to get it right the first time around.

*Note: You might have noticed that the reply button is missing for some reviews with comments. This is because these comments were removed as they breach our policies for display. These comments are visible on the Extranet but aren't publicly published on your property page.
