web design for Dunmuir Hotel, East Lothian

Dunmuir Hotel, East Lothian

The Dunmuir Hotel is a multi award winning family run hotel in my home town of Dunbar in East Lothian. The hotel has 20 rooms, a spacious event venue for weddings, business meetings and conference. It also has a very popular restaurant and bar.

The owners were struggling with a poorly performing and difficult to manage website which also had very poor search engine rankings.

I worked with them on a new website design and built their new website on a professional content management system (Craft CMS) which enables the owners to easily manage all of the website content themselves. I also integrated their existing room booking system into the new site for a seamless user experience.

I helped the clients to research their key search terms for SEO purposes and assisted in tweaking the website copy for better SEO. The content management system includes a comprehensive suite of SEO tools which we use to ensure the site performs well on search engines.


"We contacted Darrell to design & build our website for the hotel, he came highly recommended and had just finished the 3 Chimneys site. He was brilliant, listened to what we were looking for, came in and met us and straight away understood our business and suggested the best way forward. It was all in all a very painless experience and we worried about
moving away from our old provider. But we had no need to be, as Darrell did it all seamlessly

The after-sales support has been second to none and I cannot recommend Make Digital more highly for anyone looking for help either with the existing website or to design and build an all signing and dancing version."
