Encouraging direct booking to your hotel

The Old Bell Hotel & Restaurant is the oldest hotel in England, right next to Malmesbury Abbey, in the heart of the Cotswolds, and is well known for it's gardens, dining and superb customer service.

The hotel approached Shortwork for a refresh of their photography and wanted a Google Street View Tour, with a view to encouraging direct bookings, rather than via Online Travel Agents(OTA's).

We agreed that the best time for the shoot would be in May when the Wisteria is in full bloom - and it was worth the wait!


"It was a pleasure to work with Justin he was professional, efficient and friendly, even being flexible to ensure we had the best weather on the day! The tour is just what we were after, thank you Justin."

The Virtual Tour

This is a Google Street View Tour, without an overlay. You can embed the tour on your website, from any "view" you choose.

The tour was shot in a single day, minimising disruption for customers and staff, and we arranged shooting specific bedrooms to give a taste of the different rooms available

We included the gardens, terrace and front of the building. Have a wander around!
