THE CATFISH BLOG
The Arundel House Hotel is a friendly family owed hotel in a fantastic location next to the river. The hotel prides itself on its friendly service and welcoming staff. It is a beautiful Victorian property with a cosy bar, tranquil and secluded garden and a magnificent Victorian style Conservatory Brasserie. So, it has a lot to recommend it, however the dated website did not reflect this.
We persuaded the hotel to lighten up their deadly dark green logo and change their house colours to provide warmth to the site. This can also be carried over into their printed material and any marketing they undertake. We have also made better use of their photographs and used some interesting graphics to display their downloadable menus.
The website is easy on the eye for the visitor and easy to update for the client who now has access to a content management system.
The only bone of contention is the third party booking system they use which does not tie in with the new colour scheme. We are working on that ... so watch this space.
What the client said:
"Catfish took away all of the hassle of designing a new website, making the whole process easy and efficient. Jane was very easy to work with and came up with a lot of great ideas to help promote the hotel. She has also made it a lot simpler for us to update the content of the website and to post new menus and promotions. I will definitely be going to Catfish when the time comes to make further changes to our website." Charles Correa
