5* Hotel & Restaurant, Devon

Following the successful launch of a 5* hotel & Michelin star restaurant in 2017, we developed a PPC strategy to drive both hotel and restaurant bookings, which has been active and evolving ever since.

Based on initial keyword research, we developed  campaign segmentation strategies that would assist in maximising auction efficiency but also drive the upselling and cross-selling of the different offerings. We then layered targeting parameters based on behavioural and location criteria, adjusting bids based on conversion likelihood models. This approach has been incredibly successful for the hotel, with their paid media investment increasing year on year since launch.

  • Room bookings from PPC up 600% on H1 2020, alongside a conversion rate increase of 200%
  • Achieved account ROAS of over 8,500%, with an average cost per room booking of under £15
  • Across generic campaigns, we generated a ROAS of over 1,400% – that’s over £14 in new customer revenue for every £1 spent

Luxury Manor Hotel, Cotswolds

Based in the heart of the Cotswolds, we work with a luxurious 5* country estate surrounded by stunning countryside. With an award-winning spa, the hotel offers guests the ultimate in relaxation and wellness, something which we’ve been able to use to stand out against strong competition in the area. We worked with the hotel to create an omnichannel campaign message which enabled industry-leading engagement rates at scale and lowered campaign costs.

The primary objective of the activity is increased room bookings, however we’re also co-ordinating campaigns in line with other seasonal activities and offerings, such as outdoor dining or spa promotions. By doing so, we’ve been able to generate conversions around the different facilities and in such  maximise the revenue of the hotel throughout the year.

  • A PPC conversion rate that’s over 2x higher than from other referral traffic
  • An engagement rate that’s 5x higher than average, increasing auction performance
  • 1,500% ROAS across generic prospecting campaigns, that’s £15 in new customer revenue for every £1 spent
