Clean, stylish, simple. Perfect.

This classic Kiwi pub actually started life as a New Zealand Railways admin block in Lower Hutt. But after being trucked to the Wairarapa town of Greytown (in pieces) and rebuilt with meticulous care, it is now one of the best known pubs in the lower North Island.

Unfortunately its website didn’t reflect the quality of The White Swan experience and owner Rob Slater asked Right Hand Man to build a new site from scratch.

Visually Rob asked for a clean look, plus he wanted to showcase the unique accommodation options that The White Swan offered. To meet this brief we created a design incorporating a light blue brand coloured masthead on a clean white background, an elegant easy-to-read font and a horizontal navigation bar that made the site super simple to get around.

However, the hero of the site is the changing slideshow which creates maximum visual impact and gives the online audience the chance to imagine themselves being in the comfort of this wonderful pub and its spectacular rooms.


Here's What The white swan hotel has to say about working with us:

“From start to finish Daniel and his team made the redevelopment of our website painless and extremely stress free. Nothing was a problem and they genuinely listened to what we wanted to achieve from our new site giving us great advice and guidance along the way. We would definitely use Dan and his Company again and highly recommend him to anyone looking to upgrade their current site.”
