For those looking to get started with an Airbnb property Coventry is a great place to do so. Formerly part of the county of Warwickshire, the city offers great access to the county even today, and great transport links that can get visitors to Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Leicester – in fact almost any town or city in the midlands within an hour. Whether families on holiday or single travellers on a business trip, Coventry is a great place for guests to visit because of these transport links alone – but the city has much more to offer an enterprising host and the guests they take in. Our dedicated page on hosting in Coventry does a great job of explaining why this is, and the SevenStays team investigate the plus points of hosting in Coventry in more detail in this blog.
Coventry has a rich history as one of the seats of the UK motor industry, in fact, it was once known as the UK’s ‘motor city’. While the height of those days are behind us now the city nevertheless retains a strong automotive presence. Jaguar Land Rover were founded in the city and are still headquartered there, while you’ll also find that Indian automotive giant TATA, Unipart, and LEVC – the company responsible for the manufacture of modern ‘hackney carriage’ taxis commonly seen in London – also maintain a presence in the area.
This is great news for hosts as it means that people visiting these companies on business may well choose the Airbnb property Coventry has to offer to provide a bed and a roof over their head for the evening or a long term stay – but lets not forget that carmakers also have an appeal for tourists. Jaguar Land Rover hosts driving experiences in nearby Kenilworth, and people attending these experiences from further afield may also choose an Airbnb property in Coventry to provide accommodation either side of their experience.
Don’t forget that thanks to Coventry University, hosts essentially have a ready-made year round rental market for any living space that they have available – it doesn’t matter whether it’s just a spare room and access to the kitchen, studio flats or apartments, or a multi bedroom house – any time that the Airbnb property Coventry has to offer is sitting empty and without guests from the tourist or business markets, the landlord has the option of turning to the local student community to generate some income.
If guests are staying in Coventry for business or perhaps to visit the world renowned Coventry Catherdal there are certain things that guests will expect from the Airbnb property Coventry has to offer. No matter the location or the style of property they’re staying in, guests will expect it to be clean and comfortable, with a certain array of living spaces. A kitchen, bathroom and bedroom should go without saying (and they should be stocked with the essentials) as well as a living room – somewhere they can relax and watch TV or read a book, for example. If you can provide all of these basics then you’re off to a good start, and can look at offering some extra touches of luxury – access to a garden, touches of extra stylish décor, or a local information pack perhaps – to take your guests’ stays to the next level.

Our team of experienced experts hail from across the hospitality and marketing sectors, so no matter whether it’s more practical help like cleaning and re-stocking your property to a hotel-level standard, or assistance with the marketing side of things – like taking some great images of your property and pairing them with the perfect advertising copy to appeal to your audience of choice – we can help you.
