<p>Ordinarily, the minimum booking period with Flying Butler Apartments is three nights but this is dependent on availability and does not apply for all apartments. We specialise in medium-longer term stays and offer our best rates for longer stay periods. It is also worth noting that in the UK, VAT is only levied at 20% for the first 28 nights (or 5% until 12th Jan 2020) and it reduces significantly after that period. That said, we will always remain extremely competitive for any length of stay and do welcome guests looking for short-stay solutions, whether for business or leisure!</p>

<p>Opting for serviced apartments when travelling, whether for business or leisure, is a hugely growing trend for good reason. Well several in fact. Here's what our guests are telling us...</p><p><br></p><h2>Space</h2><p>There is no question that serviced apartments win out over average hotel rooms in dimensions – guests can spread out and take advantage of the ‘zoned areas’ or separate rooms with defined spaces to work, cook, relax and sleep. This is especially appreciated in longer stays.</p><h2><br></h2><h2>Cost-effective</h2><p>The average daily rate per room tends to be more cost effective than with hotels, especially for longer stays. With welcome hampers on arrival as well as the availability of shopping services available from many operators, guests can benefit from the staffed support, yet also save money that would have been spent on mini-bars and room-service. Also a cost-saving: serviced apartments normally offer free Wi-Fi unlike some hotels (we certainly do). </p><p><br></p><h2>Self-contained and safe</h2><p>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. All our apartments are accredited for the <a href="http://www.cs-compliance.co.uk/covid-19-accreditation/" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">CSC Covid-19 Safe scheme</a>.</p><p><br></p><h2>Home comforts</h2><p>Many people underestimate the importance of home-comforts when staying away from home. With serviced apartments, guests enjoy a 'home-away-from-home'. With comfortable sofas, dining spaces and even home-office desks in some , guests can spread out and enjoy the amenities. And with fully-fitted kitchens, guests can eat what they like, when they like, with no meal-time restrictions. Serviced apartments also offer guests privacy and autonomy - they can relax in their own private space, with more freedom and convenience than a standard hotel room.</p><p><br></p><h2>Service</h2><p>No need to miss out on top-notch service during your stay! Most serviced apartments come with an impressive range of services as standard and guests can usually opt for more. We fully appreciate that every guest is unique and every stay requires bespoke care and consideration and we offer a heap of<a href="https://www.flyingbutler.com/what-to-expect" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank"> extra services and facilities</a> for guests should they wish them.</p><p><br></p><p>As one of the largest serviced apartment providers in the UK, Flying Butler offers guests a choice of over <a href="https://www.flyingbutler.com/our-apartments" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">400 apartments</a> in more than 50 locations throughout the UK.</p><p><br></p>

<p>The short answer is – anyone can! Serviced accommodation is frequently used by corporate travellers – such as someone working on a project far from home or someone working from a different office for a period of time. It is also common for people to stay in serviced apartments temporarily after relocating, while searching for a more permanent residence. People also stay in serviced apartments for leisure as there are many benefits to a serviced apartment over a holiday villa or hotel; they provide self-contained 'home-from-home' environments a bit like a villa but with support and services a bit like a hotel - the best of both worlds!</p>

<p>Why choose serviced accommodation? There are many benefits of choosing a serviced apartment over alternative accommodation solutions: </p><ul><li>Space. Serviced apartments typically offer lots of space for guests – with areas to work, cook, relax and sleep. </li><li>Amenities. They are a ‘home away from home’ with private cooking facilities and, usually, laundry facilities. Guests will normally get a proper area to work such as a desk or table – rather than resorting to a laptop in bed. </li><li>Flexibility. Serviced apartments also offer guests flexibility and freedom – guests are free to come and go as they wish and have their entirely own schedule. </li><li>Staffed support. A stay in a serviced apartment will provide guests with hotel-like amenities such as cleaning, maintenance and staffed service. Operators often offer added extras such as: bespoke welcome hampers for a guest’s arrival; the availability of shopping services where guests can pre-select goods for delivery; ironing and dry-cleaning services; meet and greets and chauffeur driven arrival. </li><li>Cost-effective. Serviced apartments also tend to be more cost effective than alternative accommodation, especially for longer stays. </li><li>Self-contained. From a safety / social distancing point of view, serviced apartments are self-contained environments, with less communal areas, and many offer contact free check-ins. </li><li>Interior design. Most serviced accommodation operators pride themselves on their attention to interior design so guests can enjoy lifestyle enhancing designs during their stay.</li></ul>
