Roomspace is the longest established corporate housing (¹) brand in the UK, founded in 1995 by Charlie McCrow.
Roomspace currently provides more than 450 high quality, fully furnished serviced apartments for corporate or extended business stays, relocation and project work. Roomspace prides itself on being able to offer their clients a full in-house experience, including weekly cleaning, guest services and coordinating property maintenance.
Apartments are situated in over 25 locations across the UK, Spain and Portugal. The brand continues to develop and grow with continual investment in both product and people and our key focus is on providing exceptional guest service. In 2018 Roomspace added 45 new units to their portfolio in 4 newly completed blocks and is actively looking to expand by working closely together with estate agents, property developers and investors.
Property landlords who plan to rent out their buildings as long-term investments see the advantages of working with serviced apartment operators like ourselves.
Once our relationship has been established, it really is a perfect partnership with the shared aim of keeping the apartments and investment looking as good as possible and rented for the long term without any voids knowing they will be well cared for. Our tenants (guests) are almost all business personnel and their comfort and experience is our first and foremost concern. We know that the quality and state of their rental apartment has a big impact on how they rate their experience with us as our landlords do.
With the emerging build to rent sector the opportunity is there for Roomspace to make further connections in the industry and expand into new locations with an enhanced service offering made possible by the tenant focussed design of these new developments.
Three years ago we started the rolling project Pantone 21 (named after the colour of our logo) to upgrade and improve our ageing inventory (some of which we have had in our portfolio for more than 20 years) to bring it in line with our newer locations and this has only been possible with the co-operation between our loyal landlords and our dedicated operations team who have been busy upgrading furniture, redecorating, replacing floors, kitchens and bathrooms.
Roomspace is getting ready for the next decade, with plans for further expansion throughout London and the South East of England and also in our other major hubs like we have in Madrid and Lisbon.
