Website Design Service Testimonials

Hotels Online have created a wide variety of refreshing, guest-friendly and informative hotel, guest house and bed & breakfast websites across the UK. Each of these hotel web sites benefit from the seamless integration of the HOL booking system.

Since the launch of each of these news sites, HOL have been widely credited with directly influencing increased numbers of guest reservations and positive feedback toward each accommodation provider.

Please review our small selection of customer feedback below and then get in touch if you'd like to know how we can help refresh your website and increase your bookings!

The Best Western Brook Hotel Norwich

The Best Western Brook Hotel Norwich are a recent addition to the Hotels Online integrated reservation system and web marketing customer portfolio.

HOL re-launched a new modern and appealing website in June 2011. At the same time as the new site we also included an integrated quick book/availability checking tool and already this has had a dramatic impact on their bookings and we anticipate this upward trend in online reservations will continue.

"Since day one HOL has been a phenomenal company to work with. I was amazed at the power and control we got with our OWN WEB SITE when we first signed up, and I'm even more impressed now with the traffic and reservations we are getting.

I'm constantly impressed with HOL's customer service and their rapid response to any support requests and for the way they manage the site.

This is the first thing I say whenever I'm asked about my web design.

George Hotel at Easingwold

George Hotel at Easingwold have been customers of Hotels Online sine our very earliest days way back in 2000.

Although the new website is still in its 'early days'; since HOL launched a modern and appealing new hotel website for this classic York hotel already it's had a dramatic impact on bookings and the upward trend in online reservations continues. Thus helping reduce this hotel's reliance on high-commission booking sources and helping secure and bolster their online brand at the same time!

"Following the Hotels Online's upgrade of our website in December 2010, I am pleased to tell you that comparable reservations through the system are up by over 300% in January 2011.

Well done, and long may it continue!

Inglenook Guest House

Inglenook Guest House have been happily the Hotels Online Booking System since 2001.

Our customers were only too happy to let Hotels Online construct and launch an entirely new homepage for this charming Yorkshire Guest House in January 2010; safe in the knowledge that their valuable resource was in safe hands. Sporting a 'quick book' completely integrated into the new web site design.

"We are delighted with our new website which has a modern and professional look about it.

The staff at HOL have been very helpful, nothing is too much trouble. All changes requested have been made very quickly and accurately.

The new site has been live for 6 months now and we are really seeing the benefits. On line bookings have more than doubled compared to the same period last year and many of our visitors have commented positively about the new site compared to our competitors.

We have found the 'pay a little extra for each booking' to be a very cost effective way of upgrading our website."

The Feversham Lodge site is sporting an entirely bespoke design along with matching design on their secure hotel reservation page.

"During 2009, and with a view to countering the economic downturn, we decided to redesign our website.

We commissioned Hotels Online and worked closely with their designers in developing a website in keeping with the ambiance of our Guest House.

Since going live we have received countless very favourable comments. More importantly however, we have noticed increased website traffic and bookings, many of which have been through the HOL online booking facility." Feversham Lodge, Yorkshire

Osborne Hotel, Acton, London

"I was searching for a way to allow our clients to be able to search room availability and book rooms online via our website. I also needed to be able to accept online payment via PayPal.

Hotels Online Booking System has provided our customers the means to carry out these tasks and improved our ranking in search engines leading to a higher number of bookings.

I have found the system to be user-friendly and the booking charges to be reasonable.

I have just signed a contract for Hotels Online to manage our website (which includes re-designing of website, free hosting and further search engine optimisation) and am confident this will generate higher sales. I have found the team at Hotels Online to be very supportive and well informed.

I have no hesitation in recommending their services to other Hoteliers."

Crown Lodge Guest House, Reading

"Crown Lodge Guest House is a newly refurbished and renovated business; we took over this business in March this year, though already running as a guest house/hotel it needed a complete overhaul of the facilities. We had an advisory visit from the "Visit Britain" inspectors to set guide line for our renovation to attain a minimum of 4 star standard facilities. While this was continue it was imperative that our website design and functionality mirrored efforts made on site.

Hotels Online contact was searched and established over the Internet, as it happens it was the first and only one call we had to make in effort to find suitable website developers. A HOL partner has been personally involved in this project. These guys offer a complete support package for small business like ours from designing of a website to put in place online booking system at incredibly competitive cost. HOL team designed concepts are imaginative and show flexibility to adapt to each business's individuality and requirements. These guys are professional, approachable and helpful. The software has been designed in house and is user friendly and very easy to update.

I am extremely satisfied with the entire service and strongly feel it represent our business successfully and reflect on our standards. I would recommend Hotels on line to small/medium B&B's just like ours to give it a try as the new online booking software which is easily accessible and extremely user friendly. The team at Hotels Online comes highly recommended.

Thanks guys for all your help, keep up the good work and we wish you the very best and look forward to long and successful business relationship."
