Multiple space management within Mews


Domaine de Ravenoville is nestled in the countryside near the Normandy coast, making it a perfect location for weddings. Previously, managing wedding parties had to be done separately, outside the PMS.


With Mews, Pierres d’Histoire can manage their event space in the same platform as their rooms and other spaces. As well as saving their team time, this also makes it much easier to manage reservations and finances in the same place and using unified guest profiles.

A secure, time-saving payment solution


Taking and making payments can be a time-consuming part of guest interaction, and one that adds no real value to their experience.


Mews Payments champions payment automation that makes transactions fast and seamless. Once the guest provides their payment details (such as during online check-in), Pierres d’Histoire can action payments at any step in their journey with just a couple of clicks. The information is tokenized and handled with the highest security protocols, meaning that as well as time saved, it reduced the risk of fraud.


• Payment automation for credit card transactions through Mews Payments
• Zero chargebacks
