“Contain yourself” or “You can cater for yourself tonight Sunny Jim”
As of late, given the easing of restrictions we have (understandably) been getting a lot of questions surrounding whether we can take leisure booking from Monday 12th April 2021.
We have carried out a risk assessment and in short, yes, we can.
But for those who are interested as to why this is the case, we have pulled together a few short answers to help guide you.
Let us do some jargon busting…
What is meant by self-contained accommodation?
To break it down, if something is self-contained it is ‘complete’ or deemed as having everything which is needed ‘in itself’.
When applying this to accommodation, this is deemed as a house, apartment, penthouse, villa, etc. space that guests can hire without needing to rely on a third party to eat, drink, stay at the accommodation.
All our short term lets in Bristol can be defined as self-contained.
Is this different from self-catering accommodation?
The term self-catering is used in travel to recognise that the experience in which a guest is taking up requires them to cater for themselves. This usually refers to cooking their own meals, making their own drinks, etc.
So to answer the questions as simply as possible – no, they do not mean the same thing. But in the context of accommodation, yes they are.
All our serviced apartments in Bristol are deemed as self-catering.
