Narrabri Club Motor Inn

Congratulations to our Motel Management Company, MAS Country Pty Ltd. On achieving a staggering 91.1% average occupancy rate for the entire first quarter of the 2017-2018 financial year.

In comparison, 2016 averaged 75.5% so this is an increase of 15.6% in the percentage of available rooms sold. However, when one compares the rooms sold in 2016 of 2084 with the number sold in 2017 of 2513, the difference of 429 actually means that they sold 20.58% more rooms than we did in 2016.

To further illustrate how good the 2017 percentage is, in the good trading years of 2015 and 2014 it was 83.2% and 83.6% respectively.

Very well done.

Over 7 months have passed and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Occupancies have increased by 22% , with a $30,000 increase in revenue per month. We have also equalled the highest revenue month in 8 years – all within 3 months of taking over the management of the property!

I do pay MAS Country Management Fees, however the fees are 50% less than the fees I have paid to Choice Hotels per month. The most important thing I feel, is they are extremely aggressive in increasing sales to the property. They are also very active in gaining new business via the tendering process and they manage the room rates on a minute by minute, hour by hour basis, thus gaining advantage over our competitors.

I would like to take this opportunity to highly recommend any property thinking of having their property managed by a third party to consider MAS Country.

The Owner Group

Blackwater Central Motel

As we approach a two and a half year association with MAS Country we are very pleased to confirm they have proved to be true to their commitment to professional administration, regular consultation/feedback and proactive marketing, resulting in increased occupancy and reduced costs. Occupancy rates are well up over the last 12 months and we are frequently achieving 80-100%.

MAS Country has introduced our motel to a completely new client base, as well as competently catering to our existing clients. In addition to day to day efficiencies, they have expanded and introduced internal revenue opportunities. Any problems or issues which arise are dealt with and resolved, amicably and immediately.

Now, with a clear and steady growth pattern and the security of knowing MAS Country is at the helm on a daily basis and constantly seeking to deliver every sales opportunity available to us, we look forward to continuing our association.

We have no hesitation in recommending the MAS Country team and their processes to any hotel or motel.

(Previously with Golden Chain)

We contracted to be the exclusive MAS Country partner in Cowra from July 2017 because we were interested in remaining within a group environment but with one that actually were out there trying to assist us grow our little business. We took a leap of faith!

MAS Country over the next six weeks completely changed our online presence with our fantastic new look website but more importantly connected our property management system (GuestPoint) to all available booking channels and the MAS Country cloud, including the GDS for the first time.

I can see that for the same period 1st August 2017 to 10th October 2017 (the period when all MAS Country systems / IT connections we know were fully in place) the motel took $17,316 more in revenue than the exact same period in 2016.

That’s a huge increase for a small 19 room motel in a 9 weeks period.

Forward bookings already look far more than last year, cannot be happier with our decision to go with MAS Country and their team.
