Prioritizing bold image galleries, properties, news & events, you’ll create outstanding pre-vacation experiences of your hotel or vacation rental. You can use a video, slider, or image in the front page header.
Feature your best rooms, focus on the social proof with testimonials, and provide visitors with structured information in clean header and footer sections.
Property Page Design Variations
This free Hotel Booking Elementor WordPress theme makes it easy to showcase properties in a compact list view with a sidebar or put single/multiple properties in the spotlight (without a sidebar).
With a single accommodation layout, you are free to focus on individual properties – display an image gallery, room capacity, pricing, availability calendars, virtual tours, and more.
Tweak Theme Design with Elementor
The Albatross free WordPress hotel theme is crafted with the most popular and loved WordPress site builder – Elementor. It guarantees smooth and flexible edit times for you, even if you don’t have any tech skills.
All those stunning visuals you see in a demo – galleries, tabs, sliders, testimonials, and more are pre-built and styled with Elementor. And you can edit them in visual mode!
Lottie Animation, Image Hotspots & More with Stratum
Stratum is our hand-crafted collection of extra widgets that brings many more customization opportunities to Elementor and Albatross.
We didn’t just pack this addon with the theme, we added many pre-designed content widgets created with Stratum: lightweight Lottie animations, maps, image galleries, and more!
Change Theme Accent Colors in WordPress Hotel Template
The Albatross Free WordPress Hotel Theme allows you to change the color scheme via WordPress Customizer for the entire site globally.
For individual content elements, there are always Elementor widgets to help you choose complementary colors for buttons, backgrounds, texts, and any needed content element.

Property Management & Bookings with MotoPress
The MotoPress Hotel Booking plugin is sharpened for lodging business needs. It enables you to have control over the full cycle of property and bookings management! The plugin is available in free and PRO versions. The Albatross Elementor hotel template is powered by the free version, but we also highlight premium features so you can see all plugin opportunities.
Seasonal Pricing & Custom Rates
Set different rates for the same accommodation type based on different conditions. For example:
- Accommodation facilities.
- Calendar period (holidays, weekends, seasons).
- Discount coupons.
- The length of stay and number of guests (available with Hotel Booking Pro only).
PayPal, Pay on Arrival, Direct Bank Transfer
The free version of the Hotel Booking plugin integrated with Albatross allows for secure payment processing via the built-in PayPal payment gateway, direct bank transfer, or cash on arrival.
You can unlock even more gateways, such as Stripe, Beanstream/Bambora, Braintree, and 2Checkout with Hotel Booking Pro.
Property Search Form with Your Custom Filters
This feature is available with Hotel Booking Pro only.
For multiple accommodations, you can make the property search as quick and convenient as possible for your prospects.
The search form can be easily extended with any sorting filters that are specific to your business realities.
Automated & Manually Approved Bookings
You may opt for accepting all booking submissions automatically, for example, upon payments or when a guest confirms their booking by clicking a link in the email.
Otherwise, entrust this task to your website admin staff so that they can approve or decline booking submissions manually.
Double Your Profit with Bookable Extras
Add and categorize extra services, assign them to specific accommodation types, and set charging rules (e.g. charge once per stay or per each night) for them.
At checkout, guests will be able to view and add the offers they like to their bookings.
Sync Site Bookings with OTAs like Airbnb
This feature is available with Hotel Booking Pro only.
Grow direct bookings with the Albatross Hotel Booking Elementor WordPress Theme but don’t forget about extra channels! Sync availability calendars across different OTAs like Airbnb or Booking.com and your WordPress website.
Admin Calendar for All Bookings
The calendar gives you a visual view of all bookings with all statuses (confirmed, pending confirmation, etc.).
You can quickly filter them by the status, date, or accommodation type to see available/unavailable slots. Additionally, you’ll view all bookings in chronological order via the Payment History menu.
Portable Bookings Data in CSV Documents
Feel free to generate booking reports and export them in a CSV format.
For your spreadsheet document, you can choose individual fields with information about accommodation types, booking statuses, booking IDs, rates, and more filters.
