  • Wild Winds Little Haven
    Wild Winds Logo

    Andrea Vaughan, Owner, Wild Winds

    “I knew I needed a new website which could link into SuperControl booking software and display new images of Wild Winds. Beyond that my instructions to XLR8 Marketing were vague. The variety of website templates offered together with their detailed knowledge of holiday rental marketing clarified my thoughts. XLR8 Marketing was also able to suggest and implement other changes to my use of email and social media enabling consistency in branding. I love the logo, simple and effective. The website was delivered on time and on budget. Communications always friendly and timely. I had felt overwhelmed by the thought of a new website, but XLR8 Marketing made it a straightforward and calm process. The continuing support has been excellent. I feel it was value for money and I have recommended them to friends.”

  • Downs Barn Farm by XLR8 Marketing

    Carolyn Care, Owner, Downs Barn Farm

    “Realising that our website was outdated we were delighted to find XLR8 Marketing. We were reassured that they really understood our business and what we were looking for in a new website. We found working with them a really easy and pleasant process. The project plan was clearly presented and delivered on time with a very smooth migration. They have provided us with a fresh, modern, appealing design that is responsive, mobile friendly and very visual. We were also pleased to be able to consolidate our two different booking systems to standardise on SuperControl. We are extremely happy with the result, have had some very good feedback from guests and would highly recommend them.”

    Higher Carthew Farm Cottages

    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.”

    Grovewood Cottages XLR8 Marketing Testimonial

    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!”

  • Arbor Holiday & Knightcote Cottages Testimonial
    Farm Cottages Testimonial

    Arbor Holiday & Knightcote Farm Cottages

    “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.”

  • 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.”

    “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.”

  • West Woolley Farm Website by XLR8 Marketing

    John Keeble, Owner, West Woolley Farm

    “XLR8’s analysis of our website convinced us that we needed to make some significant improvements, and they have more than delivered on everything we were looking to achieve. They understood our business and what we were looking for, came up with great suggestions and responded flexibly to our ideas, gave us regular feedback during the development process, and delivered a great result on time and in budget. We would heartily recommend them.”

  • Alan Biggs, Director, Broomhill Manor

    “We recently tasked XLR8 Marketing to redesign our website to give it a more modern feel and to make sure that it was maximising its SEO potential. 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 are also using them for on-going marketing and social media work to ensure that we interact with our customers on a regular and targeted basis and whilst it is too early to assess the effectiveness of this work, initial feedback appears to suggest we are on the right track. We would not hesitate to recommend XLR8 Marketing to business that was looking to potentially improve its performance in web driven marketing.”

  • Devon Country Barns Website by XLR8 Marketing
    Orchard Barn at Devon Country Barns

    Richard McHowat, Owner, Devon Country Barns

    “We have been delighted with the feedback received from our guests on our new website. They love the look and feel and report that it is easy to navigate and quickly find what they are looking for. XLR8 did a very good job not just in the technical design but also forcing us to re-think what it was that we were offering rather than simply lifting our old content and using that. The plug-ins that allow Facebook updates to stream into the website and the booking system to appear on most pages in different forms are very good and give the site a dynamic feel. The header and various sliders make the best of the images too. The site is also dual language – fantastic for our target market. Linda and Phil are structured in their approach, had regular formal meetings with us during the build and produced what we wanted. We are also staying with them for hosting and support because they’re just a phone call away when we need them and have been very responsive.”
