    Default Any good resources for a friend who would like to rent to a contractor(s)?

    Hi,

    A friend of mine has a large flat (4 bed) to rent and wondered if there were any decent places to advertise other than spareroom.co.uk? She's based in Cheltenham so plenty of commerce, engineering, gchq etc. as sources of potential renters.

    What sites do you use for looking for accommodation?

    TIA

    If its of any benefit, I recently needed to look for a room and the first place I went to was spareroom.com. Worked well for me. I went to see several places before I decided as there are all sorts on there.

    Another alternative to spareroom is Rent a Room Monday to Friday. Started out as a site for people to rent rooms from Monday to Friday, not sure if they do monthly etc now.

    I use the ritz website for accommodation. At a push a Hilton but that’s a real push.
