  • Higher Carthew Farm Cottages Website by XLR8 Marketing

    Jane Dunstan, Owner, Higher Carthew Farm Cottages

    XLR8 Marketing has provided us with a fresh new website. We found XLR8 easy to communicate with and very organised. They have extensive knowledge of the IT systems required and of the holiday accommodation industry.

    XLR8 were able to guide us to create the best showcase for our business which presented not just the accommodation but the location also, to help guests imagine the holiday they are able to experience when they stay at Higher Carthew Farm. By putting the work in up front to create the experience and set up the online availability, you can reap the rewards and let the online booking system work for you.”

    Sandra Major, Owner, Grove Wood Cottages

    “XLR8 Marketing really understood our business concept from the outset and have created a fantastic showcase with a contemporary and professional website that links with social media and provides access to all the information and photographs necessary in today’s market place. Their patience and help have been invaluable and the support could not be better. They show a real interest in helping make the business succeed and provide help over and above that which is expected. The continued support for marketing and updating the website is also second to none. Highly recommended!”

  • Warrenside Cottge Website Testimonial

    Warrenside Holiday Cottage

    “We had a go at building a website ourselves for Warrenside Cottage, but the finished product was awful and very amateurish. Once we decided to get a site built professionally and Linda was on board from XLR8 we knew things were going to get better.
    From the very first contact to the site going live, XLR8 gave expert help and advice - weekends, evenings all over Christmas & New Year - anytime! They were always available and helpful. Our new website is everything we could hope for.”

    “Linda has been very patient with me, I needed a web site over a year ago but couldn't face the upheaval and the change at that time. But loved other web sites that they had done.
    However once it got started the process was just so smooth and relaxed. I couldn't believe it. The web site was up and running in just over a month which is fabulous.
    I have had training and support from both Phil and Linda, and it all seems to be really easy to make changes and adapt the web site.
    Would definitely recommend and wouldn't leave it so long next time.”

  • Broomhill Manor

    “The work was delivered on time and our initial impressions were favourable. The site has now been live for about three months and web traffic is up over 30%. We have had a really strong year end of bookings, which in the current market is unlikely to be coincidental!”

    “We found that XLR8 Marketing were very helpful and tolerant, responding quickly to our feedback during the website build. They worked closely with us to make sure the migration went smoothly and that we had continuity of our email service. We are delighted with the outcome – it’s fantastic.”

  • Ollerbrook Cottages testiomonial

    Ollerbrook Cottages

    “We asked XLR8 Marketing to redesign our website not really knowing what we wanted as this was a new business for us. They were very helpful and offered us several alternative designs allowing us to decide what it was that we actually needed. They were very helpful and responded quickly to our requests during the build. After going live the support continued with email and WordPress help. Recommended.”
