Why serviced apartments could offer the perfect UK staycation.
Britain is set to become a ‘staycation nation’ this year with people opting to take a domestic holiday over the summer months due to restrictions and uncertainty over travel. In the quest to find the best possible accommodation, many holidaymakers are turning to serviced apartments, appreciating the many benefits they have over hotels and holiday homes – especially in the current climate.
Our portfolio of apartments are set in convenient locations across London and South-East UK. Whether you’re looking for a romantic city break for two, accommodation close to friends and family, or a coastal family holiday, we may well have an apartment to fit your requirements.
Serviced apartments offer a private, flexible and self-contained retreat similar to a villa or holiday home and yet also provide guests with hotel-like amenities such as cleaning, maintenance and staffed service in order to make every stay as comfortable and supported as possible. Here at Flying Butler, our team works hard to offer a perfectly curated stay. Guests are invited to choose from a range of standard added extras and are able to request anything we haven’t yet thought of in order to make their stay both enjoyable and easy.
Serviced apartments tend to offer much more space than hotels – guests can spread out and take advantage of the ‘zoned areas’ or separate rooms depending on the configuration. With more privacy, guests can relax in their own private space, with more freedom and convenience than a standard hotel room. Flying Butler apartments all have beautifully appointed kitchens for self-catering; families with children don’t have to be split up across several bedrooms as with hotels and parents can take advantage of a separate, comfortable living area in the evening.
By their very nature, serviced apartments offer a self-contained environment which is safe and secure – there are typically less communal areas than in hotels for instance. We have long had a reputation for rigorous cleaning procedures and, given the latest pandemic, we have significantly stepped-up sanitisation measures, social distancing procedures and infection prevention solutions, partnering with an accredited manufacturer of cleaning and hygiene chemicals and rolling out a programme across all apartment locations so guests can stay in confidence.
On a final note, the average daily rate per room of our serviced apartments tends to be more cost effective than with hotels and we are particularly well known for being price competitive. Prepare to get much more space for your money!
