Having had ideas about improving our rooftop terrace at 100 Kings Road, Reading Aparthotel for a while, coinciding with the Covid lockdown and staff moving in-house, we have taken the opportunity to create a small garden and vegetable patch in the heart of Reading. The roof terrace had previously been given a complete overhaul and decorated to provide a calming and enjoyable outside space for our guests, ready for the fantastic weather this summer. The addition of beautiful plants and crops added an entirely new dimension to the outdoor experience!
Gifts for guests
As crops began to flourish after the care and attention from our ‘green-fingered’ colleagues, we were able to share all the lovely fresh and organic produce with our guests. With our serviced apartments all featuring fully equipped kitchens, our guests love the ability to cook for themselves and what better ingredients than those grown where they are staying!
Guests were also encouraged to help themselves and pick fresh produce directly from our rooftop terrace, whilst gazing across the Reading landscape or enjoying the sun in a peaceful environment.
Flowers flourishing and providing for local insects
As well as creating a tranquil environment for guests, the flowers were a welcome addition to a number of insects. Our #HOFfamily were not the only ones working hard to maintain the garden…we had an abundance of bees join us over the summer as they benefited from the selection of flowers, undertaking pollination and fertilising the flowers for us!
Stay at 100 Kings Road
At House of Fisher, we have an amazing internal culture throughout the team, who are known as the #HOFfamily. This is very apparent at 100 Kings Road, our flagship aparthotel featuring 50 air-conditioned serviced apartments from studio to 3-bedroom apartments, where our 24/7 Guest Services Team is based. The rooftop terrace with free, fresh and organic produce are simply small examples of the way we go the extra mile and look after our wonderful guests during their stays, and why we are the leading aparthotel and serviced apartment provider in the Thames Valley.If you would like to experience this yourself, please call our friendly Reservations team on 01189 514151 to discuss your accommodation requirements further or book directly online for the best rates available anywhere.
