Granny Mouse embraces social mediaNovember 29th, 2011 by Susan Reynard | Categories: environmental, hotels, industry, technology, tourism
Granny Mouse Country and Spa in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands has launched a series of live, integrated technology platforms for the benefit of its guests. Visitors to Granny Mouse Country House and Spa can now keep up to date by visiting its Facebook page, following news updates on Twitter and checking in on TripAdvisor.
“We have taken full advantage of the fact that social media has become the number one place for giving and sharing opinions, and we enjoy the opportunity to build an online community where people can experience Granny Mouse Country House and discuss those experiences with like-minded travellers,” says owner Gill Bowmaker.
The venue has its own dedicated mobisite, accessed via a QR Code. In addition, those who are considering Granny Mouse Country House and Spa for a wedding, conference or holiday can preview the venue by watching its YouTube clips.
Bowmaker explains that one of the chief reasons for adopting technology to this extent is because it is in keeping with Granny Mouse Country House’s eco-friendly outlook, enabling the venue to communicate with guests without the use of paper. A comprehensive range of i-brochures have been developed for this purpose, which double as a source of important information as well as a visual catalogue of its offering.
