For both short and long stays alike, serviced apartments are a great self-catering alternative and offer way more flexibility than a hotel. They offer the confidence and independence that flows from knowing there are fully trained and experienced staff on hand to ensure that you have a relaxing holiday.

Serviced apartments offer considerable cost savings as you can prepare your own meals (or order them to be delivered to you from one of the online dining services such as Deliveroo) and benefit from the freedom and independence that comes from living in your own apartment with its own front door! Our aparthotels offer you a wide variety of options ranging from simple budget studios to lavish penthouse apartments with every touch of luxury you could possibly think of, and more besides!

Some of our luxury residences have their own bars and fine dining restaurants for guests where they can entertain friends, family or visitors “at home”. Gyms are standard in many of our residences so you can keep fit while you’re away. Some even have indoor swimming pools within the property to allow you to take an early morning plunge….. You can enjoy your own home from home with its own front door for your vacation in London!

If you are travelling with younger children you will enjoy the fact that you can prepare and eat meals and snacks in the comfort of your own home without having to go out to a restaurant for every meal. This will save you time, money and the frustration of insisting that your children behave themselves impeccably at all times! And of course children can bring their own iPads and computer games with them and relax in the comfort of your own private living room whilst the adults enjoy a well deserved rest too! Many of our residences also offer in-room dining, using services provided by companies such as Deliveroo, so you don’t even have to do the cooking! And your children can have fun in one of our properties with indoor swimming pools – another superb way to keen them busy and entertained while you put your feet up!.
