Hi All, I would appreciate your feedback on my current website. Having had a very traditional site I pretty much threw this together over Christmas so that I had something that would work on a mobile.

I promised myself I would then complete and refine in the new year. Thank you to anyone prepared to take the time for a quick look and make comments.

Many Thanks
Ian

It looks lovely both on an IPad and IPhone.

Just a couple of minor points, the bookcase looks quite bare and dark; something on the shelves such as a vase other small ornaments would show it off better.

I would add dates to your reviews - they could be years old. Guests donít know that your website is new.

The picture of the beach could do with being in brighter sunlight. Although the sky is blue, the picture is a little dark. You should be able to replace this easily enough later in the year when we have a sunny day.
Iím being very picky, I canít find anything else that is not really good.

Hi Zebedee,
Thanks for taking the time to review. I take you point on review dates and decided not to add dates specifically for the reason you mention. If I add dates I will have to frequently update the reviews to ensure it looks current. Not an easy answer to that one.

What about including just the year the review was written?
