  • Hotel Booking - Excellent Product and Support

    We are very impressed with the Motopress Hotel plugin /Oceania theme, having reviewed /tried and been disappointed with other booking plugins.

    A good hotel booking function is pretty tricky to get right – it must work for different settings from a single unit B&B to a multi property hotel. This plugin is very well designed and covers a majority of the possible situations with lots of options for tailoring. Includes the necessary components like taxes, services, amenities and cancellations. Flexible options for payment gateways. Auto emails to guests and the admin is also a great feature. The plugin is clean and simple, not loaded down with extraneous marginal components that slow response time and invite programming conflicts.

    On the all important support side of the equation, these guys have been great both before and after purchase, with clear, helpful, correct and prompt responses to questions. One thing which really helped our purchase decision was the live preview which lets you see exactly how everything works to determine if the product meets your requirements. A live preview is a sign of a product in which the creator has confidence.

    This plugin gives your property visitors a booking experience comparable to what they get with a large hotel chain – this is SO important for a hotel or B&B.

    Great job!

  • Helpful customer support, great set of features

    We bought the oceanica theme to showcase our property in southern Brazil.

    We, however, rent property areas rather than hotel rooms, so a fair bit of customisation had to be conducted. Whilst in that process, MotoPress were very responsive and helpful in helping change CSS styles to adjust the reservation plugin for our needs.

    Our site is in Brazilian Portuguese and they were equally helpful in giving us directions on how to adapt wording and URLs.

    Lastly, the price was very favourable for the features and design provided.

    I’d recommend their services without hesitation.

    1. Hello, I would like to know how can i change my header image size on front page that is width of the screen? No matter which image or resizes i do, it still is same size or smaller than the Front Page lower bar column. I could not find any documentation on the size, nor did i manage to find size edit option on php header.
      Appreciate your help.

    2. Does this theme enable presentation and booking of a single property only? e.g. I have two apartments in a house, rented separately incl. different pricing etc. Can I list them both using this theme?

      1. Hi Al,
        Yes, sure. You can rent any other property type instead of default rooms. Thus you will create 2 accommodation types naming them as your 2 apartments with different rates, description etc. And each accommodation type would have 1 accommodation so once it is booked the apartment becomes unavailable. Feel free to test it at live demo and contact us if you have any additional question.

      1. Yes, there is used our Hotel Booking plugin in this theme where Stripe payment gateway is available by default.

    3. Hi, does this theme has already included Motopress booking plugin? or I have to buy this plugin apart? thank you

      1. Hi Natalia,
        Hotel Booking plugin is integrated in Oceanica theme by default. It is suggested for installation after you activate theme on your WordPress.

      1. Hi Todd,
        Thank you for the question. The only difference between the single site license and the unlimited one is that with the unlimited license you can install the theme on more than one domain. So if you are planning to use the Oceanica theme for managing only one rental website, then the single site license will be enough in your case.

    4. Would you please include Bulgarian language into the translations of the theme/Hotel reservations plugin/? Thank you in advance!!!

    5. If you are considering Oceanica, I get this when trying to install WooCommerce :
      Your theme is not compatible with WooCommerce. We recommend you switch to Storefront, a free WordPress theme built and maintained by the makers of WooCommerce. If toggled on, Storefront will be installed and activated for you.
      I wasn’t expecting this, and would have installed in multisite mode, if I had known….switching now.

      WooCommerce is fairly popular. Does it not seem reasonable that lodging facilities might want to sell items that don’t necessarily tie to bookings. That’s what my client wants.

    6. I am noting some annoyances with this Theme, and perhaps the Motopress Framework.

      These are small things, but it seems that they shouldn’t exist in 2017/2018, because we have computers to handle this stuff:
      1) Number of Child Pages on Front Page doesn’t recalculate automatically. The CSS is hardcoded to assume 3 child pages at 33.33% each. Isn’t there a way to calculate this dynamically at run time?
      2) The items in the Activities menu don’t adjust automatically when the corresponding posts are set to Draft. I had Joomla templates ten years ago which built menus of posts on the fly. It’s possible in WordPress, right?

      Not sure what the issue is here, but this is two more really basic things that considerate developers should handle for their customers, IMHO.

      1. Hi ken,
        Thank you for your feedback. We’ll keep your suggestion in mind.
        As for another question so links does not hide at menu if page is set to draft in WordPress. You can try to search for some third party plugin that allows to hide unpublished menu items automatically.

    7. Be aware that the demo data file is 40+ MB for some reason, and can’t be installed from within the Admin, but has to be downloaded. If you happen to be on a slow link, good luck – my download has failed twice. It would be MUCH more sensible if Motopress would create a decent Demo installer like other theme companies, one that would move the largeish file from server to server, and not server to client to server. Oh, and further, you have to hack the SQL file, and install it manually using PHPMyAdmin – not very friendly.

      1. Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you faced difficulties downloading and importing sample data. The size of sample data mostly depends on images media files that should be imported for ccommodation types. We appreciated your thoughts you shared and we ‘ll do our best to provide a solution further. I’ve added your request to our features list. Our developers will review it and will look for solution. However if you have problems with Internet connection you might have difficulties even with ‘server-to-server’ direction.
        Our support agents just assisted you with sample data import. Thank you!

      1. Hi Bob,
        The MotoPress Hotel Booking plugin that is included in the theme is the same that you can purchase separately, but it is accessible only after the theme is activated.

    8. It says that the theme comes with the hotel booking plugin. Is the plugin still independent of this theme or is it locked to this theme? If i decide to change themes, will the plugin still work? If I purchase the unlimited license, can i still use the themes and the plugin seperately?

      1. Hi Bob,
        You have access to the MotoPress Hotel Booking plugin only after the theme is activated, so we would recommend purchasing the plugin separately if you are not planing to use it with the theme.
