About Us

Question: When was Simplicity Websites' website creation service established?

Answer: Simplicity Websites is part of the Bed and Breakfasts UK group of websites which has been promoting hotels, guest houses and B&Bs through its online directory since 2000. The Simplicity Websites website creation tool was developed in 2008 in order to increase the range of services that we provide to B&Bs, guest houses, gites and other accommodation providers and to take care of all their online promotion needs.

Question: How can you offer such a cheap website design and creation service?

Answer: By providing you with a choice of pre-designed website templates for the creation of your site we save on development time and pass the savings on to you, allowing you to build a website extremely easily, quickly and at a price that other web design companies find hard to match.

Getting Started with Building My Website

Question: Do I need to find a web hosting company to host my website online?

Answer: No leave that to us, hosting your website with a top provider is included as part of your subscription. Your web hosting is free and is set-up automatically for you.

Question: I don't offer bed and breakfast, hotel, gite or self catering accommodation. Can I use Simplicity Websites to build a different type of website?

Answer: This is not recommended. Whilst it is possible to use our service to create any type of website you are likely to find that the standard page titles on our templates are not suited to the requirements of a non-guest accommodation website. We also offer website creation service for restaurants, called Websites for Restaurants.

Question: Can I use my own site design instead of one of your website templates?

Answer: Sorry, no. The website templates are specially configured for use with our service.

Question: Why are links to external websites not allowed during my trial period?

Answer: This to prevent abuse of our service by persons attempting to create multiple links to other websites.

Question: Will I require an Internet connection and an email address to use your website creation service?

Answer: Yes, you will require both of these.

Question: Do I need to register an internet domain name myself?

Answer: No. As a subscriber you will be entitled to a free domain name registration for 12 months. We will help you to select a suitable domain name and register and configure the domain for you.

Question: Will you build a website for me?

Answer: It's easy to build a website yourself using our content management facility, however you may ask us to build your website for you as we offer a very competitively priced Website Building Service.

Features Included as Part of the Service

Question: Will I be able to track visitors to my website?

Answer: Yes, we provide referral stats through the Google Analytics service.

Subscription and Payments

Question: How much notice do I need to give if I wish to terminate my website subscription?

Answer: There is no need to give notice. If you do not renew at the end of your subscription period you website will be automatically taken off-line. The minimum subscription period is one year.

Adding and Updating Site Content

Question: How much will I be charged to update my website?

Answer: Nothing! Updates to your website are free and unlimited using our Content Management Tool. Simply log-in and update your website online, as often as you want. You can even change to a different website template to change the look of your site at the click of a button.

Question: How long will it take for my site updates to appear online?

Answer: Updates to your website will appear immediately online.


Question: Tell me more about your online room reservation facility?

Answer: We have teamed up with the UK B&B, guest house and hotel reservation provider, Eviivo, to facilitate online reservations directly from your website. This requires that you first subscribe to Eviivo's service.

Question: Will my website appear in search engine listings?

Answer: Yes. We work very hard to make our pages achieve high rankings in search engines such a Google, Yahoo and MSN. As your website's address will share the domain, you will benefit from this. We also provide subscribers with advice on how to optimise their website's content to perform well in search engines. Also, see our article How to Set-Up a Website for Your Guest or Rental Accommodation.

Question: How else can you help me to promote my bed and breakfast or hotel online?

Answer: We run the bed and breakfast directory Bed and Breakfasts UK. Subscribers to Simplicity Websites can request a 12 month free listing in Bed and Breakfasts UK.

Question: I have a gite in France, can I build a website with Simplicity Websites?

Answer: Yes, so long as you create a website in English for your gite. Our templates do not support other languages.
