Looking for the best WordPress hotel booking themes with a reservation system? I found out that lots of the themes advertised as “hotel booking” ones, actually come with a simple booking form by email, when each reservation request should be processed manually. No good for hotel managers, all the more so for guests!
Using such a “book-via-email” system you might lose direct websites bookings (and money), because guest prefer going to OTAs like Booking.com to make a quick and secure reservation that will 99 percent guarantee they won’t sleep under the bridge.
To create more demand for direct website reservations, your hotel website should be competitive with OTAs in terms of navigation, ease of use and security. That’s why a theme with the automatic room booking submissions (with a payment or without) is a smart investment in your business.
In this collection you’ll find WordPress themes with a room booking plugin built in. The chosen themes have a special emphasis on elegance in design and are powered by different third-party property booking plugins.
Don’t focus on design toys too much – though your hotel website should look really polished and professional to build credibility with your audience, its main function is to serve the needs of travelers. And they want to book the property safely and easily, resting assured that no more actions are required.
The WordPress hotel themes in this collection can suite all types of hotel establishments: hotels, hostels, apartments, luxury resorts, inns, vacation rentals, etc.
The description of each theme is supplied with a detailed overview of the theme and its property reservation system, so it’s easier for your to pick up the benefits.
Hopefully, you’ll find your lucky starting point!
Overview: The Sailing theme is bunched with a good dose of animation and trendy content modules like video and slider, so if you are looking for a pretty dynamic theme, take a look at this one.
Despite quite a heavy “luxury” look, its designers were creative enough to keep it elegant and balanced, partly thanks to a white background and eye-catching Parallax effects.
Each of 5 available demos are pretty rich visually: you can choose from ready-made layouts for BnB, hotels, etc. The search availability form, icons and some other parts are styled differently in different demos, so you can choose any to your liking.
There are lots of tools the theme is supplied with to enrich your customization work: a Revolutions slider (a premium tool included for free), a user-friendly drag-and-drop Page Builder, editable colors and fonts, etc.

The plugin supports coupons to provide your guests with discounts.
However, the reservation payments should be handled via WooCommerce plugin (I’d rather see a shorter chain of supportive products), so you’ll sell reservations as WooCommerce products.
