Guests Come First
It was critical not to disrupt guests in any way
What client needed
The Old Bell Hotel & Restaurant is a family owned hotel, and one of the oldest in England. They had refurbished the dining room, and wanted to promote all of their facilities and "hidden" gardens.
Encouraging direct bookings was a key factor in getting a Google Street View Tour, as well as atmospheric stills.
What we provided
Shortwork proposed a Google tour to include the main communal areas, as well as sample bedrooms - rather than all of them - and to cover their gardens.
It was imperative not to disturb their guests, so Shortwork shot their tour at quiet service times, and rooms when available.
We also came back to include the Wysteria on the front of the hotel when it flowered, for the maximum impact.
