The Client & The Solution
The owners of Tasman Bay Backpackers in Nelson (long term clients of HotHouse) like to think their Hostel might be like your favorite café - a place where you are totally relaxed and comfortable, there is good music playing (100% Kiwi music), the people are friendly and the atmosphere is just right. A place which feels good to be in, a place where you might have a coffee, a glass of wine, play a game, share stories, have a few laughs - a place which you remember and want to come back to again and again.
Hothouse revamped the old website into a single page responsive website using the Silverstripe CMS platform. We wanted to ensure the friendly atmosphere of the hostel translated over to the website, while at the same time making it easy for travelers on mobile devices to view and book with ease.
We added rooms and rates, video and "see and do" section with a fully integrated booking system.
