Why would someone choose a serviced apartment over a hotel?

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...


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.


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).

Self-contained and safe

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 have been awarded accreditation by the CSC Covid-19 Safe scheme, ISAAP Compliance Accreditation and ISAAP Quality & Comfort Certification. Our guests can book and stay with confidence, with extensive measures and protocols in place to provide a safe environment.

Home comforts

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.


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 extra services and facilities for guests should they wish them.
