Hampton Manor Website

Cool in the Country. A CMS Website for Hampton Manor with Character.

How did Lightbox craft a CMS website that perfectly represented this Boutique Hotel? Here’s how…

Delivering quirkiness, charm and character online

Hampton Manor is a luxury Boutique Hotel full of charm and character along with a modern, quirky approach to interior design in places. Lightbox were challenged to deliver a website that reflected this online and would entice visitors to stay or visit their award winning restaurant.

A Brief with a Difference

The brief for the project was create a website that showcased the beautiful features of the hotel and enhanced the brand. The website was to project individualism just like each room does throughout.

Aesthetics aside the website had to enable Hampton Manor to effectively promote their varying products and services and provide a fluent user experience.

The website had to have the WOW factor.

The Perfect Delivery

We loved this project! An opportunity to be expressive with design and working with such a beautiful stylish venue. We created design elements that allows visitors to not only browse the website but ‘explore’ the pages through graphical elements. We fused a hint of retro classic with contemporary styling that reflected Hampton Manor perfectly.

We developed a Content Management System (CMS) that enables Hampton Manor to easily publish new content as part of their content marketing strategy. The website integrates with their social media accounts enabling them to easily connect with their customers and promote their key offers and events whilst always driving visitors back to the website.

“Lightbox were a real relief to us when we found them”

We’d worked with a few other Website Design companies and they’ve all been pretty mediocre – yes, they were able to produce a working website but without the intuition and creative abilities that Lightbox bring.

However, Lightbox are not just strong on the technical side – they are also fantastic Graphic Designers. At last, geeks with great taste!! We didn’t just want a technical web design partner, we wanted a company who would improve our marketing and branding and be better at ideas than us!

Lightbox add the Creative Flourishes

We had quite a strong idea of what we wanted but the brief we laid out needed lots of work to ‘colour it in’. Lightbox were great at adding all those flourishes. We wanted something with a very strong personality and design aesthetic. They spent time with us at our boutique hotel, making sure they understood who we were as a business, our market and the design elements they could take from the hotel interiors.

During the design process, they also added in some great ideas – not just on the design aspect, but also on the marketing aspects of the website. Lightbox worked really hard going back and forth between designs as we asked for tweaks and changes as we kept changing out minds about things! They never got impatient which made the design process really fun and open. On the other hand, the team were strong enough to tell us their professional opinion on what wouldn’t and would work.

We are so proud of our new website www.hamptonmanor.eu and would highly recommend Lightbox
