“The Re:locate Awards are a benchmark of excellence in a challenging and important sector. As providers of luxury serviced residences in London, we are at the sharp end of the relocation process – welcoming people to London when they need the best service and support.
“We understand the huge amount of work that HR teams invest in managing the relocation of staff before they even set foot in our properties, and we wanted to sponsor this award in recognition of their incredible work.”
George Westwell, Director, Cheval Residences
Cheval Residences offers a collection of luxury serviced residences in some of London’s most desirable areas, including the City, Chelsea, Knightsbridge and Kensington. Each of the eight residences has its own individual style, yet all share an ethos and levels of service rarely enjoyed outside the world’s finest hotels. Accommodation varies from a one-bedroom open-plan apartment to a three-bedroom family townhouse or apartment, depending on the guest’s requirements.
Providing a cost-effective alternative to the 5* hotel sector, Cheval Residences has met the growing demand for serviced accommodation with the launch of two new multimillion-pound developments this year: Cheval Three Quays – next to the Tower of London, in the heart of the City – and Cheval Harrington Court, in South Kensington.
Guests of Cheval are able to experience the comfort of a home from home, whether staying for a week, months or years at a time. Each of the residences offers a dedicated concierge service, ensuring the everyday needs of the guest are managed efficiently and professionally, from making personal travel arrangements and taking care of laundry to booking front-row theatre seats at the latest West End show. Maid service, with linen and towel changes, is also included.
In addition to the 5* residences in London, Cheval offers an extended network of serviced apartments and residences around the globe through its Partnership Sales team, providing booking services and account management support to customers both in the UK and abroad 24 hours a day. Through its partners, the standard of accommodation ranges from 3* to 5*, available for one night or more, providing a total solution to clients’ accommodation needs.
