Benefits of serviced apartments

Serviced Apartments are quickly becoming the preferred choice of accommodation as an alternative to hotels.

Whether travelling for business or leisure, alone, with a group or with family serviced apartments can offer a lot of benefits:

Our Milton Keynes and Northampton locations provide an excellent temporary housing solution if you are re-locating to the area while searching for a more permanent home, if you need a stop-gap when moving home, or as a perfect get-away for leisure travellers.


Staying in a serviced apartment gives guests the room to work, cook, relax and sleep and on average can expect to enjoy 30% more space than an equivalent standard of hotel.  A typical one bedroom serviced apartment is around twice the size of the average hotel room.

Clear Prices, Value & Save on Longer Stays

Serviced apartment prices are typically 20% less than hotel rates of the same standard and because the VAT reduces after 28 nights longer stays can offer further savings.  Also, because a Serviced Apartment includes utilities, council tax and more, they are a better option in comparison with private rental. Business travellers and Corporate Bookers are able to negotiate a fixed rate to fit their budgetary requirements in the knowledge that they will pay the price agreed without unexpected extra costs.


Guests are free to come and go as they wish; enabling guests to live as normal life as possible in their home-from-home.  The fully equipped facilities in the apartment mean that guests can cook whenever they wish, work, entertain guests or hold business meetings all within the privacy and security of their own front door.


Serviced apartments generally offer a greater degree of privacy, allowing guests to bypass the formalities of a hotel.  A weekly apartment service means the apartment can be kept clean but allowing guests to retain privacy without constant interruptions.


Serviced apartments give guests the home-from-home experience that hotels just can’t offer; as we say here at Cotels, “Don’t just stay; Live…”
