22nd June 2018

Tags: Southampton news

Combining the best bits of a traditional hotel and the comforts, convenience and routine of living at home, new brand room2 is offering the Hometel concept which is set to change the face of the hospitality industry. The next room2 is already slated to be opening in Manchester in 2020.


“We’re looking to fill a huge gap in the market where people – whether they’re working or on holiday - want a much more flexible approach to staying away, allowing them to maintain the routine they enjoy at home.”


“Our ambition is to be the brand that creates and leads the hometel category in the UK and we’re perfectly positioned to do that. We’re young, independent and dynamic, which means we can move fast to fill this void in the market.”


Robert Godwin, founder and managing director of room2
