Snoozebox offers transportable and temporary hotel rooms made out of shipping containers, which can be constructed or taken down in just three days, stacked in tight spaces, and are ideal for events and festivals. Available in flexible configurations from 40 to 400 rooms, they are self-contained with no need for flat terrain or to be a near a gas/electricity source as Snoozebox provides power, water and waste extraction.

The containers are furnished to a high standard and include a double bed with a memory foam mattress, air conditioning and heating, flat screen digital TV, power sockets, free wi-fi, and spacious storage units. There is also an ensuite wet room featuring quality fittings, with towels and premium toiletries supplied and serviced by staff.

A 40-room hotel was first trialled at the Silverstone motor racing course for the British Grand Prix last year and Snoozebox will be providing portable rooms in Windsor Park during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Pageant in May for the performers to stay in. In the future, there are plans for an Olympics-related Snoozebox event and they also hope to get involved with the Glastonbury music festival.
