We specialise in website design for accommodation types from bed & breakfasts to hotels and self catering properties to campsites and fishing holiday venues.
Do you need a website for your holiday accommodation?
Wether you have an existing website which isn’t maximising its full potential or you require a new website for your holiday accommodation, we can help you build an effective web presence which portrays the essence of your property and expand your online visibility.
We have developed many websites for the holiday accommodation industry, with each and every website having its own unique qualities and from our experience in this field, we are able to share our knowledge with our clients to help them better understand what the market requires and what their customer’s needs are. We help businesses create a memorable story with its own unique qualities that directly appeals to your customers.
Of An Accommodation Website
A picture is worth a thousand words and photographs are the most important part of your holiday or accommodation website. Great photos (and video) will tell a story far better than words, give immediate impact and well taken photographs will attract more visitors to your website. Take time setting up your shots, make sure you have good lighting and that the property is well presented. If you have outside space, be sure to capture its beauty when the sun is shining. Use as many photos as you can, the more you have the better your story!
Make use of all your images and really show the potential of your property.
Create content that is original, creative and that speaks to your users at a personal level. Using genuine and empathic content, try to paint a picture of what a holiday at your property is like. Include any extra facilities you offer which could enhance your guests’ holiday. Recommend local places of interest and if there are special events going on in the vicinity use them as a selling point in your descriptions.
Its important to provide clear directions to your property as holidaymakers may not know the area or how to get there. Embed Google maps into your contact or ‘how to find us’ pages with perhaps a route planner from local ports or airports. Also provide information on local taxi firms, bus services and car hire.
Ensure your telephone number is prominent in either the header or footer of your website. Having a prominent telephone number provides a level of reassurance for the visitor – some people will want to speak to you directly before they book. Have an answering machine so that you don’t miss potential bookings. As well as booking forms, it’s a good idea to have a simple contact form which enables visitors to send enquires and helps build trust and engagement.
An availability calendar for self-catering accommodation, holiday cottages, holiday homes/villas, guest houses and B&Bs puts you in control of all your bookings in a single location, you can display flexible or seasonal rates and prices. Your customers can view availability and book directly on your website.
Having a guestbook on your website is a good way of attracting new custom; they provide reassurance, tips and advice, helping you build important trust and retention. Remember to email guests upon their return, asking them to submit a review.
From a creative and strategic perspective, every website we create, every element and feature we develop for our clients, should be stunning and functional.
