The Hideaway Hotel sees a 130% increase in website visitors, thanks to Pixel8

A year after Pixel8 designed and developed The Hideaway’s website it's going from strength to strength achieving a record breaking occupancy rate of 79%.

Nestled near the popular tourist destination of lake Windermere, The Hideaway Hotel really is a boutique hotel. We set about focussing on the hotel’s core strengths, creating a website that clearly sets the hotel apart. Known locally as a restaurant with rooms, thanks to the culinary skills of Richard, one half of the husband and wife team, together with the fantastic location and quirky rooms, we set about developing a website that enabled these strength’s to shine.

Once developed, we set about creating a digital marketing strategy to drive new and existing visitors back to the website. Social Media Marketing has helped raise awareness of the brand, whilst Search Engine Optimisation has helped to drive new visitors to the website. This coupled with new e-mail marketing templates and an easy to use email campaign manager has created the winning mixed media formula.

Owner Lisa Gornall said, ‘The new site has made a huge difference; guests particularly love being able to see all room details before they make a booking, and the targeted SEO & social media work means that we are reaching more ‘Hideaway’ people all the time!’

We are now building on this initial success by harnessing all the great reviews and customer experiences to reach new potential customers. Here’s a taste of the fantastic feedback, shared through the likes of Facebook:

“Amazing weekend. Great setting, amazing room, outstanding food and awesome service.”

The Pixel8 team have loved working with Lisa and Richard over the past year; just goes to show that we really are Building Brands Together.
