Description

Experience Level: Expert
I am a director of a small Country hotel in East Sussex, we have 16 bedrooms, restaurant, bar, lounge and are situated in Rye a beautiful Medieval Town.

Rye attracts International interest for its history, surrounding castles, gardens and houses of interest, also because of its rich history -1066 Country etc.

We've modernised the hotel but kept its Country feel and over the last 3 years and have spent over £250,000 updating the bathrooms, adding digital TV's, WIFI furnishings and carpet etc etc. We a have a great reputation for our service and value for money!

Ok, we have on-line booking engines which give us 80% of our bookings, but we have to pay up to 20% in commission which can add up to £6-£12,000 a year! We have signed up to a fixed monthly chargeable booking engine and now need more bookings made directly through our own web site. So we need to increase the visitors to our web site and also market our hotel effectively to increase our occupancy levels. We are currently on 70% occupancy year round an I'd like to increase this by at least 10% to 80% year round occupancy, our hotel has 16 bedrooms which equates to 11 rooms occupied every night and would like to maintain this and increase it to 12-13 rooms per night. As you can see the bookings aren't bad, but we are paying around £2,000 a month in commission, so I would like to keep the booking levels, but through the hotels website and not through these commission based booking engines. I am looking for someone who can work on the SEO for my website and help us get bookings directly.

Look forward for your bid.

Thanks
