Goldstone Hall is a rurally located hotel and restaurant in a Georgian manor house, parts of which date back to medieval times. It is located south of Market Drayton.
Goldstone has already built up a reputation for quality dining and comfortable bedrooms, all set in beautiful gardens which overlook the Shropshire and Staffordshire countryside. It has won many awards including “The small hotel of the year for the Heart of England West Midland region” which confirms its position as one of the finest small hotels in Great Britain.
The Hall has an immediately welcoming atmosphere with open fires and a mix of fine antiques and modern fabrics. They specialise in parties and private dining, and have hosted many exclusive weddings. The Goldstone Hall website introduces all aspects of what’s on offer, providing its guests with a great stay and/or a wonderful meal.
For an already successful hotel and restaurant, the 3D virtual tours embedded onto their website has only furthered the popularity of Goldstone Hall.
John Cushing, Owner of Goldstone Hall, says;-
“The 360 view tour of our boutique hotel and restaurant is extraordinary and allows guests a full guided tour from the comfort of their own computer. This builds confidence and we have measured a significant increase in bookings since the tour has been online with our website. We also notice that we can discuss many organisational issues such as lay out, which private dining room is preferred etc. over the phone so saving both our customers and our events coordinator substantial amounts of time.
The execution of the filming was efficient and did not inconvenience our guests or the smooth running of the hotel.”
With Goldstone Hall priding itself on its extraordinary attention to detail, the virtual tour has really helped to accentuate this in every part of the building. The fact that John has received evidence of this appreciation by its guests through an increase in online bookings just goes to show how much virtual tours can further confidence in potential guests.
“This is another string to our bow in the marketing of our award winning hotel”
If successful businesses like Goldstone Hall, who also feature in the 2017 Good Hotel Guide, can further boost their online marketing through the help of a virtual tour, just imagine how much it could benefit those that are struggling within the hospitality sector. As an easy to explore tool, with an exceptional level of transparency, a 360 virtual tour is the single most effective way to win more customers.
