The Leathes Head celebrates new award winning website with GuestCentric3 min read
NEW YORK, 25 July 2016 – The award-winning Leathes Head Hotel, in the Borrowdale Valley near Keswick, is celebrating the launch of their brand new website after teaming up with GuestCentric to update their online presence. Since its launch in April the website has been recognised at the 2016 International Hermes Creative Awards, receiving a platinum award – the highest accolade to be awarded.
Manager of The Leathes Head Hotel, Jamie Adamson, said,
“We wanted a new website with leading technology and different from all the other hotel websites in the surrounding area. We are in a very competitive location, with some of the best hotels in the UK and we needed our website to stand out and increase direct bookings through our website. It was also important that the website created an authentic experience and reflected the true beauty of the hotel to encourage people to book directly and cut out third party websites as much as possible.”
Working closely with the team at The Leathes Head, GuestCentric designed and developed a technology driven website, following the latest trends. It was crucial to create a unique user experience that simplified the booking journey for guests and ultimately increase direct bookings.
Pedro Colaco, CEO at GuestCentric said,
“Great Hotels like the Leathes Head have great stories to tell. And this is what we do best; tell great hotel stories through great websites.”, said Pedro Colaço, CEO of GuestCentric. “Winning awards with this kind of work is the recognition of a story well told but to see the level of direct bookings doubling is the result of a job well done. This is where Guestcentric’s platform comes to play a very important role, leading customer through the booking process.”
Commenting on the success Manager of The Leathes Head Hotel, Jamie Adamson, added:
“Right from the start, we noticed that our direct reservations through the new website doubled. GuestCentric’s website design came through just fantastic, really conveying the look-and feel of the hotel.”
