Why stay in a Serviced Apartment over the Festive Season

Whether you are planning a trip to Northampton or Milton Keynes to visit friends or family, or just fancy a trip away from home, choosing to stay in a serviced apartment offers many benefits. You can enjoy your own space to cook a Christmas roast, put up a Christmas tree and lounge around catching-up on reading mater, movies or that jigsaw puzzle you have been itching to build. You will also be perfectly placed to enjoy the many festivities on offer at these locations.

Christmas in a serviced apartment has the offerings to make your stay a wonderful experience and here we discuss the reasons why this is possible versus booking into a Hotel for a few nights.


Space – bedrooms separate from the living area offers space to move about particularly if travelling with children. While there isn’t a chimney for Santa to come down to deliver gifts, many serviced apartments have the added luxury of a balcony – an ideal substitute. While children are fast asleep in their own bedroom you have that quiet moment to unpack all their gifts hidden on the top shelf of the wardrobe provided in all main bedrooms and display them as you would if spending Christmas in your own home.

Christmas in a Cotels serviced apartment Flexibility – if you so choose, you can taken advantage of the fully equipped kitchen with all the utensils and appliances needed to cook a hearty roast dinner. However, if you don’t fancy cooking, all our serviced apartment locations are within an easy walking distance to awarding winning pubs and restaurants – although we do suggest you make a booking soon due to their popularity at this time of the year.

Facilities – There are a host of facilities all inclusive in the apartment rates so there is no need to ring room service and wait for an iron plus ironing board to be delivered – it is all there ready for use should you need to catch-up on a bit of laundry ready for that big night out.  Apartments have free, continuous Wi-Fi so you can take along your laptop or tablet and connect at anytime to SKYPE an overseas relative or send eChristmas cards to loved ones. Christmas and New Year in a serviced apartment at any one of our locations is a great experience for a few nights and is certainly worth it. It will be a Christmas to remember.
