How to Stop "Bookings Leakage" - Easily & Instantly

It's increasingly vital that your 5-star reputation helps you stand out, and that your reviews actively generate more calls and bookings for you.

That's even true if you've got a great B&B with plenty of 5-star reviews. But the truth is, most B&Bs are missing out, due to 7 known problems with how their reviews are being displayed and ineffectively leveraged. (These problems are due to recent changes in the online environment.)

In a nutshell, 98% of B&B's, even those with great 5-star reviews, aren't getting nearly as many enquiries and bookings as they should - because their reviews are inadvertently falling prey to some or all of these 7 types of "bookings leakage". Here's what they are and why they matter...

1. Reviews Are Rarely Seen

Most B&B websites do not have their 5-star reviews displayed where they're conveniently, prominently showing - on every page of your site. Your potential guests are too busy and too easily distracted to look for and visit your Testimonials page.

2. No Verification of Reviews

We've all heard of fake reviews. That's why having verified Google reviews matters. It boosts trust that the review is from a real person. But far too few B&B reviews are independently verified.

" Wow, this is great! I love how it looks! And I actually got two new guest calls within the first two days of my reviews being displayed in this new way."

6. Reviews Aren't Showing Trusted Site Icons

It's a simple thing, but even a verified Google review doesn't look or feel like one until we have reassurance that it is. Displaying a Google Verified icon does this.

7. Reviews Don't Have an Inviting Call to Action

When you're focused on providing a great experience for your guests, it's easy to forget to invite them to stay in the first place! (Let's face it, how many B&B owners are comfortable with "selling" themselves?) But it does make sense to make it easy for guests to book, right?

3. Reviews Displays Not Mobile Friendly

Even if your guests book with you via their laptop or over the phone, they often use their mobile to start checking out your B&B. But most B&B reviews are just too hard to read on mobiles and tablets.

4. Reviews Often Out of Date

This type of "bookings leakage" often comes down to a lack of time, and knowledge of how to keep reviews up to date without a lot of manual work. But it's still costing lost enquiries and bookings.

5. Reviews Not Eye-Catching or Appealing

Letting your reviews speak for themselves is nice and non-boastful, but most B&B websites don't show their reviews in a way that is genuinely eye-catching and visually appealing. That reduces engagement, resulting in fewer bookings for you.

About Yvonne Halling

World-Leading Bed & Breakfast Coach & Lifestyle Business Architect

Hello, I’m Yvonne Halling and I ran a Bed and Breakfast business for 17 years in the Champagne region of France, where we welcomed people from all over the world, helping them to discover and delight in the hidden gems of Champagne.

For the past eight years, I have coached, trained and mentored fellow Bed and Breakfast owners worldwide to have a thriving B&B business and a happy lifestyle, using proven online strategies, templates and technology.

I opened my B&B in 2001, before the internet! How life has changed since then. If you’ve been in this business for any length of time, you’re sure to be able to relate to that. And if you’re new to the business, welcome to our friendly B&B growth family.

I believe we are lucky to have witnessed the explosion of communication channels, which we can use to grow great businesses that delight our guests, provide for our families and give us the lifestyles we desire. And I'm here to help you do just that!

What Makes My Products & Coaching Different

As a business owner, you have either been bombarded with advice and pitches, or heard from others who have. The thing is, the vast majority of people dong the pitching have never been in your shoes, actually running a B&B.

I have. Successfully. For 17 years (through ups and downs). Nor do they keep their eye on what matters: high-profit solutions that you can actually fit into your already-busy working week... and make money from using. 

I'm all about productive action that brings you more revenue, higher profits and the lifestyle you desire - because I know just how much all that has meant to me, my clients and students of the years. So this is what you will experience with this package and everything else I offer.


My training and coaching is always based on my direct experience of owning and running a successful B&B for 17 years in France, and applying what works for other B&B owners worldwide.

creating great guest experiences

We all know that delighting our guests is the only way to sustainable success in the B&B and hospitality industry. That's why all my training and coaching is founded on this time-tested truth, leveraging it for win-win outcomes.

simple, quick & high-profit solutions

As a busy B&B owner, I know you don't have the time and energy to take on another big job in your working week. Nor do you want to risk strategies, tools and platforms that won't work. So I keep things simple, easy and high-profit.

What My Clients & Students Say

It really matters and means so much to me to see my clients and students get great results. Not only is this such a relief for their business, it's also a huge breath of air for their peace of mind and life in general. Here's a selection of what they say. You can see for yourself that my methods work.

Of course, I practice what I preach, so in addition to the video and image testimonials you see below on this page, you can see my own 5-Star Reviews Website Badge in the lower lefthand corner of this page. Those reviews you see come directly from my verified Google reviews, 24/7.

Your Questions Answered

Will this work for me and my B&B?

Absolutely! This simple strategy provides your guests what they want: quick and easy access to the great reviews you're receiving from other guests. And right now is a terrific time to do this. After all, so many people really, really want a break - including your previous guests! In fact, they're way past ready for a break. However, they want to make sure they choose a B&B they'll love. So let's give them a great reason to stay with you!

How quickly will this work?

This will of course depend on a few key factors, like how many people are visiting your website, the number and quality of your 5-star reviews and the look and feel of your B&B, as brought to life on your website. What we can say is that we've seen other B&B owners getting calls within hours and during the first two days. While we can't promise specific times for you, this will only boost the calls and bookings you get. So, let's get going!

Does this approach require spending on ads?

Not one bit! That's one of the beauties of this strategy. What's more, what' creates more natural trust - an ad or a great testimonial (that's verified)? So, let's get going, shall we?

Does this involve using booking agencies?

No, no and no again. (I have really strong feelings about those booking sites. They take so much money and control it makes me shake my head and get cross what they do to B&B owners.) So no, you'll be getting in fresh bookings without those agencies getting their mitts on your money, your profits and your guests. Feels good, eh? So... let's do this!

What if I'm not very technical?

You don't need to be. There is just one simple thing you'll need to do to get this set up and running, so you get those 5-star reviews showing up on every page of your website and attracting fresh calls and guest bookings. Installation typically takes about 2 minutes. Either you can do it, or your webmaster can. So let's make it happen!

How many 5-star reviews do I need?

Honestly, even a few is enough to start with. And that should provide the incentive for you to get cracking with collecting some more, from your current and past guests. (We can help you with that - just ask us and we'll walk you through our suggestions.) So with that said, the sooner you get started, the sooner you and your visitors will get that delight!

Will this work in the current environment?

Yes, it will. So many people are desperate for a getaway right now that there is a LOT of pent-up demand out there. Of course, people also want something special that feels like more just a night somewhere different. That's why your 5-star reviews are so key to letting them know they'll have wonderful stay with you. (It's also a big part of our special sauce: creating a mouth-watering experience that your guests love - while adding extra profit for you, with no extra work. We're also happy to talk to you about how we do that.)
