Bella Vista Motel Franz Josef

The Bella Vista Motel Franz Josef website was outdated and not mobile friendly. Firstly It needed an update to a responsive design layout with integrated booking calendars. Secondly, to engage potential guests basic information and imagery needed to standout in order to convert bookings.

The redesign included restructuring of content, layout and imagery. Pages were consolidated and long paragraphs of text were trimmed down to be quick and informative. The old design had limited content hierarchy and dated styling, fonts and sizing etc. New font styles and heading sizes were introduced and the pages were stretched out to allow room for the audience to easily consume the information.

The build of the wordpress theme works well across a range of devices large and small. This was a crucial part in the redesign as we knew much of the audience was travelling the country and using handheld devices such as smartphones and tablets.


The booking calendar integration was a critical part of the rebuild so guests could book directly with the owner. The calendar functionality had to work differently from large to small devices, simple media queries solved this problem.
