Hillside Bed & Breakfast – Website Design

Project Description

Requiring a modern website design, Hillside, is a family-owned and run bed & breakfast in the beautiful village of Sandford, Devon. Hillside is a cottage with an important history in the village – it has been the village forge, the shop and now a Bed and Breakfast.

One of the most important factors in generating business for a small bed and breakfast is to have fantastic reviews. Susan, who owns and runs Hillside, previously ran a successful B&B from their farm. But upon retirement, wanted to continue to offer accommodation. Having been meticulous in their search for a new property in Devon, that would offer outstanding rooms, they needed to get the word out! Essentially starting from scratch, we needed to ensure the website had that luxurious quality that would entice prospective guests.

Having used a friend to get some great photographs of the newly refurbished rooms, we looked at the important factors – top of the list from everyone we asked, was the ability to search availability and to book online. As this was essentially a new business, the budget was tight, and Susan hadn’t used a booking system previously. I researched the most commonly used booking engines for small accommodation owners, and we settled on one system that was simple enough for Susan to maintain. I could also use the booking system to integrate and allow search and bookings on travel websites, such as TripAdvisor.
