The team at Stay in a Pub, the UK’s leading promoter of pub accommodation, have officially launched their new website with a focus on Great British Stays.
The online platform, www.stayinapub.co.uk, featuring boutique pubs, traditional coaching inns and affordable pub accommodation across the length and breadth of the country, was established in 2013 by Paul Nunny, managing director of cask ale accreditors Cask Marque.
Paul explains, “With a £750K fundraising exercise last year, we have been in a position to invest in a new website, people and marketing whilst establishing valuable partnerships and enhancing our services and support for pubs, particularly at this difficult time. Our ambition is to have 125,000 unique visitors to the site per month and to generate in the region of 37,000 bookings per year for our pubs by 2022”.
The new website is based on cutting edge technology and optimised for user experience and booking conversions. The super-fast elastic search function gives access to listings for more than 1500 pubs across the length and breadth of the UK and with an integrated booking platform the user has access to live availability, prices and special offers. In addition, the site features information about nearby places of interest and inspiration for future breaks away.
Charles Cryer, CEO of Stay in a Pub said ‘Our dynamic new mobile-friendly website reflects our personality, core values and commitment to championing the great British pub. Domestic travel and staycations are, not surprisingly, in great demand and we are appealing to people to consider staying in a pub as an authentic alternative way to stay. The platform makes booking simple and accessible; helping pubs with rooms to increase their room booking revenues and lower their online distribution costs”.
