How to Drive More Direct Bookings?

Maximise Direct Bookings

The key to increase direct bookings on your website is to understand the guest journey from finding your hotel online to checking out after their stay.

Once you understand this, you can start optimising each step of the process. This includes getting more visibility on search engines, increasing customer loyalty, meeting guest expectations and more.

Our holistic approach to digital marketing, allows our clients to ensure that their whole sales funnel is optimised so whatever path visitors take to find your website, we encourage them to become direct bookings.

Using all the tools and automation available on the market can be daunting to understand. Let us take care of it for you and use technology to optimise your revenue.

Responsive Web Design

Designed for People

More than 50% of your website visits and sales will come from mobile devices, so it’s important that your site looks good on all devices, whether it’s an iPhone, Android or the latest 55-inch smart TV.

It goes without saying that without a responsive website you are losing out on sales. Every website we provide will look good on all devices.

A mobile-first approach to website design will increase visibility, user experience and bookings.

Responsive Website Design
Unique & Bespoke Website Design

Unique & Bespoke Design

Designed for People

Your hotel deserves better than a template which looks like everybody else’s website. Competition is strong in the hospitality industry, so you need to stand out from the crowd.

When guests visit your website, they should fall in love with your property. As they scroll through the pages, their excitement will drive them to make a reservation.

You don’t want visitors to come to your website and leave uninspired, you want them to check out your packages, see the experience you have to offer and book your hotel.

Anyone can buy a template or get a free website, but not everyone can make a website which inspires dreams and excitement. A great design is the basis for a great experience.

Professionally Written & Translated

Designed for People

Olive & Lake provides original, optimised and well-written content designed to sell rooms. We only use professional writers and translators to ensure that your website is perfect in every language.

Automatic translations might be free and easy, but it won’t convert your visitors into guests.

Having a language written for people in English or in French requires more than just a simple translation. It’s about knowing about how to write for your audience.

That’s why we only work with content writers and translators who can inspire people to want to come and stay with you.

As the saying goes, content is king. A well designed website needs content which encourages guests to keep reading, clicking and dreaming.

Safe & Secure

Nobody will book a room on an insecure website. Good security is essential to protect you and your customers. That’s why Olive & Lake doesn’t charge extra for what we feel is essential. There are no hidden costs.

Best Practices

All websites are protected with SSL certificates, Two-Factor Authentication, a secure server and a strong firewall. This is included in every website we handover. You shouldn't need to pay extra for good security.

Peace of Mind

Our website maintenance service includes offsite backups which we keep for 90 days. That means that we can restore a working backup of your website from any point in the last 90 days!

SEO for Hotels

Search Engine Optimisation

Built for Search Engines

SEO has evolved to be more than just ranking for your keywords by placing random keywords across your site in the hope of ranking in Google.

Instead, we focus on understanding the customer journey to ensure that your website is visible when it needs to be. We don’t make promises we can’t keep, instead, we ensure that the people who are looking for a place to stay, can find your hotel.

You’re going to be competing with some of the biggest businesses in the world. Understanding how to compete and what results you can expect are key to an effective SEO strategy.

All our websites are optimised for local SEO, technical SEO, on-page SEO, social media sharing and more. This is the foundation to drive organic traffic to your website.

Fast Loading Times!

Built for Search Engines

Page speed and loading times are a critical aspect of your website. Nobody likes a slow loading site and people have little patience.

Search engines also have little patience. Page speed is part of Google’s core web vitals, which are used in their ranking algorithm.

It’s important for both visitors and search engines that your website loads quickly.

We don’t only make beautiful looking websites, but we also ensure that they load as quickly as possible.

Olive & Lake uses a combination of good page structure, fast servers, a global content delivery network and other optimisations to ensure that your website loads quickly for all visitors – whether they are Google’s crawlers, a potential guest in Europe or somebody using their phone in Asia.

Website loading times will help your website to rank higher in Google, improve the user experience, reduce the number of people who leave and increase conversion rates.

Fast Website


Built For People

An accessible website means that anybody, anywhere can still access your information, products and make bookings. 

Olive & Lake follow accessibility best practices on your website to ensure that all users, including those with disabilities, have a good user experience.

We believe that the internet should be open to everyone, and that includes people who need websites to be accessible.

Web Design For Your Hotel

Made for You

We’ve got you covered! Olive & Lake only hands over 100% completed websites and nothing less. We go through a vigorous process from conceptualisation, drafting, editing and final checks before publishing any website.

Hotel Website Design

1. Conceptualisation

We start the process with an initial meeting to understand your objectives and design preferences. The goal is to understand how you want your website to look. We combine this with our expert knowledge on what makes a good hotel website.

Together, we will look at example designs, discuss your requirements and start to understand the project.

After we have a good vision of the project, we’ll start to conceptualise the new site, build 2 or 3 example pages and send them over for you to check.

2. Initial Feedback

We will meet to discuss the first example pages to get your initial feedback. Our team will then make any design changes based on our discussions.

When you are happy with the outcome of the concept pages we have built, our team will then continue to build out the rest of the website.

3. Final Draft

After the first draft has been completed, we’ll check everything according to our checklist and send it over to you for feedback.

We will take into account any discussion in the previous stages and make all required edits. Again, we will check that the website is fully working and ready for the final stage.

You will have another opportunity to check everything prior to pushing the website live.

4. Ready To Go Live!

After you have checked the final draft, we will make our final technical checks. All things such as speed optimisation, SEO and more will be checked and we will push the website live.

5. Live Website

When the website is live and publicly viewable, our support period begins. We will check again for any bugs and get everything fixed.

By this stage, we’re ready to tell the world that the website is online and ready to take bookings!

6. Ongoing Support

Working with Olive & Lake isn’t just set and forget. We don’t finish your project, forget about you and move on to the next. The key to build a long-term relationship is shared success. If your website is successful, we are successful.

Your website will grow and evolve, just like your business. We’ll be here to help you grow and provide you with the support you need to do it.

You will have a dedicated client success manager, who will get to know you and your business. Our team will guide you through the process of growing your web presence.

Frequently Asked Questions

This all sounds awesome, where do I start?

We like to start with a chat, get to know you and let you get to know us. The key to a long-lasting relationship is trust. This takes time to build, and it works two ways.

We don’t work with everyone who contacts us. Olive & Lake works with businesses where we think we can provide value. If we can’t provide value, we don’t feel that we can establish this relationship.

So, let’s arrange a chat, get to know each other, and see where it goes.

Can you really increase my direct bookings?

Yes, we can. But a website is just one part of the puzzle.

There are a lot of factors involved and we believe that a comprehensive approach to digital marketing is the best way forward. This includes the website and other additional services we provide.

Digital marketing is made up of lots of small things and all these things require an attention to detail which is needed to increase your direct bookings.

We’ve been doing this for a long time. We’ve worked with hotels of all shapes and sizes, we understand the market and how it works. While we don’t make any promises, we are confident that we can work with you to grow your business, increase revenue, and make a long-lasting and professional relationship.

How much does it cost for a hotel website?

There is no one-size-fits-all solution for all properties. You’ll see some other businesses provide you with a fixed price for a fixed website. Olive & Lake make bespoke and unique websites tailored to your needs. As a result, we need to understand about your business before we can provide you with a proposal.

There are other costs to consider which include domain registration, web hosting and maintenance. We provide a transparent and itemised proposal, there are no hidden costs when you work with Olive & Lake.

A website is an investment. The expenses you incur for owning a website should pay for themselves year on year.

When we provide a proposal for your business, we will provide a complete and transparent breakdown of all costs. Everything will be explained in plain English, and we will answer any questions you want us to answer.

Why is a website important for hotels?

Having a web presence is important for any business and especially important for the hospitality industry. More than 80% of hotel bookings are made online. If you don’t have a website, you’re missing out and your sales will suffer.

Your image, reputation and brand will be affected by your website. If you don’t have a website or a poorly designed site, then you will be damaging your business credibility.

Your website is one of the few online sales channels which you own 100%. You can use it to sell rooms, but also provide your guests with essential information, upsell other services and communicate effectively with your target audience.
