Whittlebury Park is a longtime user of Agilysys Visual One® property management system (PMS) and InfoGenesis® point of sale (POS) systems.
Nestled in hundreds of acres of ancient parkland, Whittlebury Park is an award-winning 254-bedroom four-star hotel, conference and training centre with a 2 AA Rosette restaurant and meetings and events facilities for up to 3,000 delegates.

“Agilysys understands our vision and is a partner we depend upon to grow with us,” said Charles Sargeant, Managing Director at Whittlebury Park. “rGuest Seat allows us to personalise the servers’ engagement with diners to understand important dining preferences such as food allergies, while its ease of use and integration with our other Agilysys solutions has allowed us to improve the guest experience and link guest data across our systems. With rGuest Pay, we can efficiently and securely manage guest payments across our property. We look forward to continuing to expand our Agilysys solution with rGuest Book and rGuest Spa in the future.”
rGuest Seat is a comprehensive reservation, table and wait list management solution that streamlines operations and enables restaurants to provide superior guest service. Built on open industry standards, the flexible solution can reside on a fixed terminal or operate on a mobile tablet. rGuest Seat provides diner details and preferences to the host and serving staff, allowing the restaurant to own guest information from start to finish and provide a customized dining experience. An online reservation widget, which allows guests to book reservations from the hotel website, offers a variety of customized options such as special menus and seating areas.
