HOST achieves one million room nights milestone

HOST, the accommodation and facilities provider to the workers on EDF Energy’s Hinkley Point C (HPC) build, has reached a major milestone, selling one million room nights across both the Hinkley and Sedgemoor Campuses.

Since opening in June 2018, the campuses have welcomed over 19,000 guests, which offer a combined bedroom capacity of 1,496 and provide a number of high-quality amenities including restaurants, bars, gyms, sports pitches, meeting rooms and event spaces.

Over the years the HOST team have worked hard to ensure that their core values and behaviours of ambition, inclusivity, collaboration, a caring nature and outstanding service are embedded in all that they do. This dedication is reflected in the fact that they’ve been able to achieve this major milestone, alongside many other successes including achieving full occupancy throughout the pandemic.

The achievements are a testament to HOST and how they work to ensure the health and safety of their guests and team is a priority and how they collaborate with the local community and extensive local supply chain to bring the best of Somerset to the HPC Project.

Mark Flinton, Campus Operations Director, said: “Achieving this milestone is a source of immense pride for our team. Thank you to all our guests who have made this possible and a huge well-done to our hardworking team who continue to offer an outstanding level of service. We look forward to continuing to grow the brand and welcoming new and existing guests though our doors.”
