Burgh Island

What We Did We worked closely with the graphic designers that created the brand to implement their styling into the existing website.

See what we did

We were delighted when Inntelligence, the hotel management company that supports Burgh Island, contacted us to discuss rebranding the website. Unlike a rebuild, a re-brand or reskinning necessitates that the graphics are worked to suit the existing website wireframe.

There is no challenge too great for our team and we got to work, each page was carefully coded, the booking system was moved into the header and fresh imagery was included through-out. We think you’ll agree the new website looks awesome; Burgh Island certainly do!

We’ve been working with Burgh Island to drive more bookings, with the main focus to:

• Increase the brand awareness of Burgh Island Hotel by increasing visibility through paid ads.

• Increase bookings by driving high-quality traffic to the website via a promotional offer. 

• Reduce the Cost Per Acquisition of online advertising by using an alternative to booking websites. 

In order to tap into this unique British holiday niche, we suggested running a promotion using Facebook Advertising. The first campaign would run for 4 weeks, giving potential guests the opportunity to book a stay at Burgh Island Hotel between 1st Aug - 31st October at a reduced rate and it was a great success! 

Such a success that we were awarded an opportunity to provide ongoing Facebook advertising to the hotel, and we’ve been doing it ever since.

What Burgh Island said...

"We're really pleased with what you have done with the guest journey and the commercial work for our hotel! Looking at how we can convert more guests to make direct bookings, not just for bedrooms but for our F&B outlets and the pub as well. One of the things we love about Ascensor is the way that you build our websites with the commercial aspect in mind. If we could describe Ascensor in one word it would be - results."


In 2022, the marketing manager of Inntelligence stated, "After a difficult few years for the hospitality industry during the pandemic, working alongside Ascensor has meant that we have been able to emerge stronger than ever. Our social media platforms are continuing to see consistent results which are better than ever, both in engagement and coverage. 

The ongoing SEO campaign, combined with our commercially focused website, has enhanced our online visibility dramatically.

The Ascensor team are always on hand, professional and friendly which really makes for the perfect partnership!"
