This quick build-up is in part a result of the fact that each of the units require no mains service – no provision for electricity, water or sewerage is necessary.

Each room is climate controlled and features a wet room, double bed, flat screen TV, power sockets, free wi-fi and a safe.Upon arriving at a location, the Snoozebox team can get a hotel up and running in about 48 hours. A 320 room Snoozebox hotel is currently in place in Essex, UK to house staff for the London Olympics.


The bespoke trailers carry six expandable rooms measuring 3.6m x 2m x 2m, delivering 50% more rooms per lorry. Rooms transform externally and internally to suit a range of guests, providing a day room and seven different en-suite sleeping configurations within the same space.

The bespoke trailers deliver a substantial improvement in deployment efficiency and speed of hotel set-up.With the benefit of being stackable, the accommodation takes up considerably less space than traditional ‘cabins’ or large motorhomes.
