Village Hotels enhances remote working offer

Village Hotels partners with remote working app


UK: Swurf, a venue sourcing app for remote workers, will connect its subscribers to an initial 21 Village Hotels across the United Kingdom.

Swurf allows users to locate, book and access discounts from approved host venues. Users subscribe to the app which can be downloaded on iOS and Android devices.

Nikki Gibson, founder and director of Swurf, said: “We believe our innovative app is a real game-changer for the hospitality sector and what better business to partner with than Village Hotels. We know our subscribers will really welcome the vibrant remote working environment and professional facilities the hotel chain has to offer.

“Swurf is still in its infancy but is rapidly expanding across the UK as new subscribers and host venues come on board daily. Welcoming Village Hotels to the app provides a clear blueprint for other hospitality venues across the UK, that struggle to utilise and maximise revenue opportunities within its remote working spaces.”

Village Hotels has recently launched its VWorks programme. It allows members to receive complimentary tea, coffee and water, discounts on food, meeting room hire and accommodation, along with access to IT facilities such as printing.

Jamie Hunter, VWorks business ambassador for Village Hotels, said: “Swurf’s entire ethos and aim to connect a growing community of entrepreneurs, freelancers, home and remote workers with hospitality venues like ourselves, makes them the perfect partner.

“Through our VWORKs initiative, we’ve invested heavily in transforming our venues into a really attractive alternative to home working. With more businesses needing greater workplace flexibility for their employees, our hotels are tailored to provide hot desks and private meeting pods through to collaborative presentation facilities. This is underpinned by the unique business community we’ve been able to create at every location via regular networking events and seminars.”
