Would love your feedback!

Recommended Posts

Hi there. 

We’ve just made our first website! 🙂

It’s been a real journey but we think we now have something really special that reflects our brand and quality of our business:


www.theoldgeorgebroadwindsor.co.uk

We’d love some feedback and idea from the experts on how we could make it better!

Thanks

Iain and Karen

Well done on your first site. I would suggest four things for your site design.

1. I see your logo is at the bottom of the page; it should also be at the top too. I would suggest the logo at the top is just the typography part of the logo (crop off the tree) so it will fit. You could try positing the tree (smaller) to the left of the logo text. 
2. The first section needs more space, perhaps 150px or more above and below the headline. The headline could be slightly rewritten to read as follows. Line 1: "Luxury Broadwindsor accommodation". Then line 2 below, "Where history meets comfort and elegance". So you are setting up the headline to match a Google search term, and then adding the second line as a tag line to describe the visitor experience. I would try using a lighter sans font for this, and making the first line larger.
3. Images. Give these a consistent margin and/or padding space around them, away from the all the text. This gives them more focus and definition (and also helps with the text content focus too). Be consistent about image shape, either use rounded corners or don't for all images (apart from image sliders). 
4. Section divider boarders are a nice feature in Squarespace, but use them consistently or not at all. When using them, think about how they help communicate your brand and guest experience. If it does not enhance any of that, leave the boarder effect out. Allow space between sections for the content to breath. 

You might want to look at font pairings too. Perhaps headlines in a serif and text in a sans would be more elegant.
