    Just wondering what people thought of a Bed & Breakfast site I did for a friend a while back? Check it out at Waterville Guest Accommodation

    It's a mediocre site...

    My major gripe? It doesn't put out the Bed & Breakfast appeal.
    What do people look for when they go to a Bed & Breakfast? Old Fashioned, Romantic, Extravagant, Countryside, Elegance, Rleaxation.

    Your site doens't fit into that, you've boxed everything in.. it's all flat and sans-serif. I'd go more for grandure pictures of countryside, elenance, romantic pictures of couples. I wouldn't box things in, rather try and break boxes and work with curves and put in some nice Script font in the header and around various places in the site.

    That's my 0.02

    Get rid of the image rollovers of the text. They're horrible.

    I had just writtena nice long reply and then Firefox crashes

    In summary:
    • Links page - get rid of the awards, they are just silly, they hand them out to everyone nearly.
    • Booking page - move the designed by comment down, and capitalise it properly on all pages. Also, make the first sentence more polite.
    • You have chosen a rather odd colour scheme, perhaps change the black logo to white text instead?
    • Pictures page - first image isn't clickable.
    • ON the home page, put the list of features/services as images, and put alternative text on them, or else use the <acronym title="blah"> tag .


    Overall, I like your favicon :P and the site is okay, just a few things out of place.

    I don't like the color scheme, the layout seems a bit too plain, the animation looks very unprofesionall.

    Thanks for the feed back guys, really appreciated!

    Yeah the animation will be going soon. And I'll redesign the site soon with more curves etc. Brak your right it's very "boxed" and plain at the moment. The BandB isn't anywhere near the country, but I see what your saying about the "Elegance, Rleaxation..." etc. Will take this on board in redesign.

    Justlivyalife what do you mean about the images and acronym tags? Is this to help with SEO or what?

    The only thing I have to say is:

    426,560 bytes for an animated gif ?!?!??!

    I think you should seriously consider a javascript jpg rotator or a swf animation.
