Documents for building a website for hotel and booking
WP Hotel Booking is a plugin available on Deep which has all the features for building a website for a hotel or booking rooms, but you may need even more features. Therefore, we provided some of the most useful add-ons which are listed below:
When you activate this plugin, two items will be added to your WordPress dashboard. “Rooms” for room’s configurations and “WP Hotel Booking” for booking and main settings configurations.
We will explain these Add-ons at the end of this article.
By clicking on “Add New Room” you can create a new room and add name and descriptions to it. Also, You have to pick a featured image for every room. There are some settings for every single room in back-end which you can access in “Room Settings”
In “Regular Price” section you can add a price for a the room for every single day in a week. Above that, there is “Gallery Setting” by which you can add more images from the room.
Add a new item for the gallery and add weekly prices in the boxes.
Room Setting (1) refers to the number of rooms of a suit and it could vary between 0 to any possible number.
You can choose the number of adult residence in number 2, but it won’t be available for the first time, so you have to go to the following path (as is shown in the image) and add the capacity feature to the room. Then adding the number of residences should be available to you.
The Capacity column refers to the number of residence and Ordering refers to the maximum possibilities for booking the room. You have to specify them so that it is shown in the reservation form.
Dashboard > Rooms > Room Capacities
In item number 3, enter the maximum capacity of children (it’s not needed to go to any path, just enter the number here from 0 to any possible number)
In item number (4) there are some more information and features about the room which are shown next to the gallery in front-end.
And in item number (5) there are extra packages for the room which could include the extra price for Wi-Fi, Bath or even a special line. You can add these items from the following path:
Dashboard > WP Hotel booking >Extra Option > Add New Extra Room
Alternate Prices in Pricing Plan
After adding you rooms, you can put specific prices for a specific period of time for them. You can access this feature in the following path:
Dashboard > WP Hotel Booking > Pricing Plan
After selecting the room and range of date for it you can then add different prices for different dates so if a user book a room on those dates, he/she will see different prices.
If you want to make some discount coupons, you have to use WP Hotel Booking Coupon plugin.
If you don’t want to make your rooms available on specific days, you have to install WP Hotel Booking Block room on your website and block the date in the following path:
Dashboard >WP Hotel Booking > Block Special Date
All you need to do is to select the days and rooms on the calendar. (Hold CTRL and select the rooms)
