The Bannatyne Hotel and Spa Group
Google photographer John Goulding was contacted by The Bannatyne Group to initially shoot only the one hotel, The Hastings Hotel, Sussex. This trial shoot more than met the clients expectations. John was very quickly asked to shoot the rest of the hotels and spas, some samples of which can be seen below. Shot in Google ‘Hotel Mode’ each area has been shot as an ‘island’ removing the need to have needless panoramas along boring hallways that no one wants to see. This also has the added benefit of keeping costs minimal as it takes less panoramas, so less work. The client has done an excellent job of embedding the 360 degree virtual tours into their website. Charlton House looks great throughout their website here, and lots of panoramas can be seen embedded into their other website here.
