WordPress Hotel Booking Website
Formerly known as the Grand Bar & Brasserie, the Grand Hotel Bowral is a heritage pub located in the Southern Highlands. The Grand Hotel Bowral comprises of a large front bar with outdoor dining, an upstairs bar [Grand Loft Bar] for special events and private functions and an award winning restaurant [Grand Winehouse Restaurant].
At the beginning of 2013 the facility was taken over by new management and hence I was approached to build a website presence based on a new marketing direction and brand. The client also wanted to have the site mobile enabled and to prominently feature the bars upcoming events and promotions.
I designed the graphic user interface and then converted it to a cross browser HTML/CSS responsive website. A feature of the design was the inclusion of a jQuery plugin called Royal Slider. Royal Slider is a powerful image gallery and content slider. This plugin which is swipe enabled for touch screen mobile devices, was used for the large rotating images on each page.
