Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge stay at The Westleton Crown

Last Saturday Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge stayed at The Westleton Crown after attending the wedding of one of Catherine’s best friends.  The wedding party had booked the entire 34 bedroom hotel in Westleton, near Southwold.

General Manager Gareth Clarke said: ‘We were delighted that the groom’s family had chosen The Westleton Crown for a house party and base for the weekend. It was a lovely family occasion with a relaxed atmosphere and they both seemed really happy to be in a comfortable environment with friends.’

The Westleton Crown

‘They stayed in a room named Swan which has a contemporary four poster bed and stylish roll top bath big enough for two.’

‘It was certainly a surprise to all the team when they arrived; it’s not every day you get to serve the 2nd in line to the throne. The atmosphere was very relaxed though and everyone seemed to have a great time’ Gareth reported.

Alacer are very proud of their ongoing relationship with The Westleton Crown in providing them with a complete hospitality software solution.

Hotelympia is a must-attend event for anyone involved in the hospitality and foodservice industry, with opportunities to touch, test and compare the latest new products in the marketplace. As ever, there will be numerous demonstrations, awards and speakers on the stage, providing you with a whole host of new ideas to take back to your business.

Packed with great new functionality the suite comprises software modules to cater for hotels, spas, restaurants, bars and beyond, all using a single central database. Compared with traditional solutions comprised of multiple-interfaced systems, the Alacer suite offers consistency and inherent reliability. Guest profile and reservation information, tasks, charges, accounts (and much more) is available and analysed across your business as soon as it is entered, streamlining your operation, as well as your system costs.

This year we are also launching a new flexible pricing option at the show. As our comprehensive suite of modules can be combined to suit any requirement and fit any budget, it is now easier than ever to join the growing number of Alacer customers across the UK, and beyond, who are reaping the benefits every day.

Of course, all software providers will tell you that they have a great product, so why not come and see us and hear what our existing customers have to say about us- including Ellenborough Park Hotel and Spa (winner of ‘UK Leading Country House Hotel’ and the ‘UK’s Leading Spa’ at the World Travel Awards 2011).

The Alacer Hospitality Suite offers a comprehensive range of modules, including but not limited to Hotel Manager, Restaurant Manager, EPOS, Leisure Manager, Channel Manager, Rates Manager and a fully integrated, commission free Web Booking Engine.

To find out what Alacer can do for your business and see the benefits of the system for yourself, join us on our stand S1716 or check out our website.

We are also excited to announce that 6 of our team will be participating in the Hotelympia 10K run on Sunday 26th February in aid of The Springboard Charity.

Jay Rayners review on Tuddenham Mill

“Chef Paul Foster has created a smart menu that puts his corner of Suffolk on the culinary map!”

The Observer, Sunday 5 June 2011

Click here to read Jay Rayners Restaurant review of Tuddenham Mill!


 Head Chef Paul Foster commented:

“I was blown away by the review from Jay Rayner; it was a compliment that he came to Tuddenham Mill let alone give such a great review. I was most pleased that he seemed to really get my style of cuisine. His comments on how it fitted the surroundings, and how I don’t use modern equipment as a toy or gimmick were very gratifying as my main focus with the food is purity of flavour and limited manipulation of ingredients.”


This is a fantastic review from such a well respected and critically acclaimed journalist and food critic, Alacer are proud of their ongoing relationship with Tuddenham Mill in providing a complete software solution.

Oundle Mill, wins Northamptonshire Restaurant of the Year 2010/11

Local restaurant, Oundle Mill, beat off stiff competition to be named Restaurant of the Year 2010/11 in the prestigious Northamptonshire Food Awards!

Alacer is thrilled to have worked alongside Jeremy and the team at Oundle Mill with their Restaurant and Hotel reservation systems over the last couple of years

The Carlsberg UK Northamptonshire Food and Drink Awards celebrate all that is great about the county’s food and drink, recognise excellence within the county’s dining venues and give a public pat on the back to all those who strive to offer exceptional food and drink experiences whilst maintaining strong connections with the community.

Michelin-starred Jason Atherton presented the award at a packed awards dinner in Holdenby House. There were over 50 entrants in the ‘Best Restaurant’ category and the judging was rigorous including: in depth reviews of the menus and wine lists, investigation into the sourcing of local produce, endorsement from diners at Oundle Mill and finally secretive visits from expert  ‘mystery shoppers’.

Oundle Mill was described as;

“Offering a variety of dining options in stylish and sophisticated surroundings”

“Great ingredients are ethically sourced, locally where possible, and blended with classic techniques and modern technology.”

“Oundle Mill exceeds expectations in every way”

“Sublime value for money”

Head Chef and Manager Jeremy Medley commented;

“We are delighted to receive such a prestigious award, especially against such strong competition. Oundle Mill is a fabulous building in a beautiful setting with a passionate and dedicated team and we are all excited about the future.”

Speaking from someone who has dined at Oundle Mill on a number of occasions I can say they are fully deserving of this award and from everyone at Alacer, a massive congratulations to Jeremy and the team for this fantastic achievement!!
