With almost 200 apartments in our portfolio across 12 locations in the Thames Valley region and this year celebrating 20 years in the business, House of Fisher have developed a wealth of knowledge regarding our industry and our guest requirements.
For long term and corporate stays, Serviced Apartments are becoming an increasingly popular choice. Demand within the industry is greater than ever, as guests select this choice over traditional hotel alternatives. With at least 30% more room, fully fitted kitchens, unlimited WiFi, Full Sky TV package (including Sky Sports and Movies), weekly housekeeping service, 24/7 Guest Services support and parking*, it is little wonder that House of Fisher serviced apartments are so popular; offering a true home from home experience.
When dealing with corporate requirements, such as group bookings, projects and special assignments for numerous employees, we find that companies are constantly looking for the best accommodation solution with added benefits. These are often restricted to tight budgets for a particular project, a specific timeline or the logistics of having all their employees in one site for transport purposes.
We have seen an increase in requirements for guests sharing serviced apartments; this could be two individuals of same sex sharing a two-bedroom or 3 individuals sharing a three-bedroom. In addition, we also have the option of supplying zip and link twin beds, converting a two double bed apartment into an apartment for 4 sharers. The same principle works for families travelling with children or nanny/grandparents.
By interacting with our corporates and guests directly, we understand their priorities and key requirements. The fundamental concern for guests sharing a serviced apartment is sharing a bathroom. This personal space is crucial for those considering a two-bedroom serviced apartment and should not be overlooked when booking on behalf of employees. House of Fisher are proud that as a standard, all of our two-bedroom serviced apartments include two bathrooms, making it ideal for sharers.
As an owner operator we are able to work with our parent company T A Fisher to ensure the apartments meet the criteria House of Fisher’s guests expect and love. Implementing standards such as the second bathroom in our two-bedroom apartments is a prime example of the benefit this relationship brings.
House of Fisher provide an excellent solution for multiple guests staying within one of our Serviced Apartments. Each bedroom contains generous wardrobe storage, two TVs in each of the two- and three-bedroom apartments – giving each guests their own space and freedom to relax individually. The lounge and kitchen area are spacious for entertaining, and come with all amenities needed to cater for 4-6 persons, launder and to relax. The entire apartment is thoroughly cleaned weekly to the exacting standards of our housekeeping team, including fresh linen and additional towels for the sharers.
