Visual One Marches on to Lumley Castle
and Coombe Abbey
30th September 2004 - Visual One is pleased to announce the signing of the contract to install the market leading integrated Visual One System at Lumley Castle and Coombe Abbey. Visual One is supplying Front Office (PMS), Sales and Catering, Point of Sale and Web Bookings to both historic properties.

If there was ever a place that lived up to the name
'No Ordinary Hotel' it is Lumley Castle. In the past
it has played host to kings and princes, now with a
unique reputation as a luxury hotel we welcome
guests from across the globe.

This 12th century Cistercian abbey is set in
the heart of 500 acres of Parkland. The
uniqueness of Coombe Abbey ensures
that any conference or event will be a
truly 'no ordinary' experience.
"Introducing a new hotel system is an exciting, yet challenging prospect," said Sylvia Lowes, Business Development Manager. "After an extensive interview process we believe that VisualOne has the expertise to assist No Ordinary Hotels with our ongoing business developments."

"I am delighted to add two more quality establishments to our client list", commented Mike Gadbury, Managing Director of VisualOne Systems (Europe). "Our integrated technology provides the modern tools required to keep our clients ahead of their competition" added Mike.
