We specialise in helping Bed and Breakfast, Guest House, Inns, Small Independent Hotel, Independent Self Catering Owners and Owner Managed Hospitality businesses to either establish their first website, or to improve an existing website that's not performing to its true potential.
Our Service is ideal for those who want to manage their own content and/or use e-commerce, and online booking systems can easily be embedded or integrated.
The action we suggest won't cost much and you'll be set for the future. We don't cut any corners, but we do adhere to some key fundamentals that are designed to ensure your website achieves its initial objectives and fulfils its potential.

Your guests use the Internet. Your competitors use the internet. Your customers only find out how good your establishment is after they have decided to become a "customer" and stay with you. As a result, your website is key to the entire customer confidence building process and first impressions are vital. You have to give your potential guests what they need (and expect), and do so as well (or better) than your main competitors are doing. You wouldn't buy from a website that doesn't do this, and neither will they!
With over half the world's Internet users now browsing via tablets and smartphones, a professional looking responsive, mobile friendly website is essential. It's also essential that you are able to manage your own content using a platform with an easy to use content management system that does everything you need it to do. We host all our sites on the award winning LightCMS cloud hosted web platform which includes e-commerce and UNLIMITED pages, products, users and data storage (and much more!) all as standard.
We can just set your site up, add some initial content and then show you how to continue the process, or we can add ALL your content for you and then show you how to make basic changes when you need to.
We'll train you in bit sized chunks over the phone and by email, and monitor you as you continue the process of developing your website. The web platform includes easy to use tools for text, images, files, blogs, forms and products etc, and can be edited from anywhere using any device connected to the Internet. You don't need any technical knowledge or special software - just a normal web browser.
The website platform is not only very intuitive to use, it's also robust, literally never "goes wrong", and being cloud hosted, all upgrades, new feature integration and platform maintenance are centrally managed for you. You just edit your content. We'll show you how to add more pages, add or edit text, images, products, and blogs so content is neatly presented - and show you how to ensure your pages are properly optimised for search engines.
The platform enables you to set up your own secure booking form and take payments online, or to link to integrate with your existing online booking system. The e-commerce tools in the platform enable you to sell both physical items (to be despatched) and digital items (to be downloaded) too if you want to.
We realise that more and more property owners have different types of accommodation to rent out and want to integrate online booking and availability tools into their own websites.If you already use an online booking system or availability tool, we can embed or link this into your site as part of our setup or restructuring service. If you don't but are looking for guidance as to who to use, here are just a few of the easy to set up, cost effective online booking & availability tools options available.
