The header features a logo and a simple yet stylish drop down navigation menu. When a visitor clicks on the contact link at the top of the page a contact menu drops down with full contact details such as telephone, email address, social media profiles and Google map information.
The default skin has a white background though you can choose from an unlimited number of colours via the admin area. One of the themes biggest selling points is the large featured slider that is displayed prominently underneath the navigation menu. There are over 20 slider effects to choose from and the slider acts as a way to showcase images of your accommodation and as a way for visitors to make reservations.
There is a wide and narrow layout style included with the theme, portfolio templates and a huge number of short codes. There are short codes for columns, boxes, pricing tables, videos, Facebook, Twitter, Google Maps, images and much more.
Both the sidebar and footer are widget ready and the blog template has a simple design that looks great. It has large featured images on the left hand side and a meta information area on the right hand side with information displayed vertically.
A custom type for rooms has been created for creating the room information page. Room features are displayed beautifully in information boxes and when a visitor clicks on the image thumbnail a pop up appears with the full image.
Guesthouse comes with a decent settings area with over 70 admin options. It includes a general setting area, appearance area, admin branding area and a skins area that lets you choose from several pre-defined colour schemes. You can also upload skins and create new ones and there is a backup option for saving all of your customisations too.
Guesthouse is a great design for those of you who are running a hotel, hostel or camp site. The integrated image slider and order form looks great and it’s easy to create your ideal design using the colour picker in the admin area. Alternatively, you can choose from one of the many free skins that are available for the theme.
A regular license for Guesthouse retails for $35 from ThemeForest. It comes with 8 skins, documentation, the original PSD files and video tutorials.
