  • (1888PressRelease) July 17, 2009 - Newedge Media Group Ltd, owners of, a local Northamptonshire web design, development, seo and hosting company, today successfully launched and following an investment of almost £150,000.00.

    Pete Halsey, Director of Newedge Media Group Ltd, said:
    "We have been looking into the possibility of redesigning since the end of 2008. We took the decision to make the investment following the growing success of Roomguide and its sister site Both sites provide hotels, guest houses and bed & breakfasts throughout the world and were originally launched in summer of 2007. Towards the end of last year we had managed to secure more than 60,000 hotel partners onto The original site did not have the capability or the functionality to cope with this number of hotels.

    Budgetrooms was launched to filter accommodation by price, only identifying rooms on a daily basis available for £50 or less. Since the tightening of the recession on the market we have seen a significant increase in the number of customers using Budgetrooms.

    The new sites have taken us over six months to develop. We decided that the time and the market were right to offer a fully integrated ‘one stop shop’ for customers looking for great hotels at great locations for a great price. We have worked tirelessly to develop the sites to provide our customers with everything that they need to make an informed decision without having to jump through hoops to secure their rooms. In today’s market customers expect more from their suppliers and we believe that the new sites will give our customers what they need. The new Roomguide & Budgetrooms web sites are made up of more than 100,000 pages of content but still only require our customers to complete three simple steps to make their bookings. All Hotels, Guest Houses and B&B’s listed on both sites can be booked and secured directly through us with a guarantee of best available rate.”

    The new sites have additional functionality to help customers in their decision making process, these include:
    Search filters by

    tar rating
    oom styles
    Accommodation types
    Travel news
    Over 80 Country Guides
    Over 200 City Guides

    Pete Halsey continued:
    "We are delighted to get both sites up and running. We have made a significant investment and are absolutely committed to making these sites work. We realise now that our work has just begun! It is early days but we are on track to generate a payback with our first twelve months. We will not stop at these two sites; we will be looking to add to the portfolio in the coming months.”
