Why we believe serviced accommodation is better than a hotel room
Spacious & Fully Equipped
Home from Home living! Kitchen facilities mean staff can save money by cooking and storing their own food.
Highly Cost Effective for Employers
versus booking multiple hotel rooms.
Free high-speed Wi-Fi
versus paying at hotels for a similar level of service.
You deal direct with the WAFH team (a real person!) in contrast to online booking platforms. This means enquires can be dealt with effectively and efficiently.
Hotels have daily cleans which when staying away long-term can become inconvenient. Apartments are you own space and disruption is minimised.
We remove all the headaches of searching for and booking accommodation.
Easier for companies to manage if all staff are in one location versus multiple hotel rooms/hotels.
