A nice relaxing to the eye website. And I too, love the rich colors you have chosen in your rooms. The Pic of the front is lovely!
As others have stated, the 1st thing that I saw when looking at the room pictures were the beds. Bed skirts would do the trick on most. We are not trying to be harsh, it is the simple fact that room pictures are THE first selling point to your B&B.
Some of the stock pics look grainy in comparison to your professional shots. If it were my site, I would focus on MY place and maybe views (if there are any) from MY place. IMMHO people can go to a lot of sites to see pics of Boulder, but at least make sure the tags have your B&B name and other keywords. (did not check this, was just a thought)
The Tea page pic (at bottom) is too busy compared to the others. I agree with the post that suggested cropping the pic to just show the shelves full of tea.
I mostly was reviewing the site for the pictures but I noticed as I skimmed the wording, that you sometimes refer to your B&B as The Rose intead of using its full name. This is confusing and is not good SEO.
At least one other poster stated that some pictures were slow to come up and that a header was not clear. Others such as myself had no problems BUT, you do not want any viewers to have a less than perfect visit to your site so I would suggest asking for more clarification from these posters and addressing those matters. If they had a problem you can bet that there are thousands of others that would as well..
It is more of a branding confusion issue. It can actually be good for SEO if there are people looking for it as "the Rose". However if nobody would refer to it by that phrase, it is probably better to tighten up the use of the actual name. You wouldn't want guests saying to friends "Oh we stayed at the Rose and it was lovely..." if the B&B can't be found by that name.Copperhead said:The Rose intead of using its full name.
