What is what3words?


The Resident is now using what3words as a new way for guests to discover us and our neighbourhoods.

what3words is the easiest way to find and share exact locations anywhere on the planet. It divides the whole world into 3-metre squares and gives each square a unique combination of three words. It’s far more accurate than a postcode or trying to remember complicated directions. We now have a what3words address for each of our hotels and HQ, so it will be easier than ever to find us.

We will be working with local businesses and destinations in our neighbourhoods so you can find it even easier to unlock great experiences and find elusive hidden gems.

what3words origins were to help find people in distress and bring them to safety, with The Resident we will use what3words to build special experiences for guests enjoyment.
