Whilst many of us would prefer to be at home when celebrating Christmas, there are times when you might want to escape for Christmas or need to travel to be with friends and family.

Visiting friends and family can bring with it the added pressure of space and finding somewhere to sleep. Which leaves open other possibilities for accommodation.

You might consider a hotel stay, but will this give you the homely Christmas feel you want around Christmas, and the freedom you need for seeing family? Instead it might be worth considering a serviced apartment over the festive period.

A serviced apartment is a type of self-catering accommodation which is found in cities and large towns. Serviced apartments offer accommodation for a few nights, to a longer duration of even a few months.

These apartments offer all of the comforts you’d find in a hotel, with the added benefit of being more like home with lots of space and a fully functioning kitchen for cooking up delicious dinners for the whole family.

Why choose a serviced apartment for the festive period?

A serviced apartment offers you the freedom and space to put up a tree, hide the gifts and begin the celebrations with family and friends the way you would at home.

A serviced apartment can also act as the perfect Christmas get-away for you and your family. The central location of serviced accommodation means you are in the perfect location for watching a pantomime, heading out to a Christmas market, or finishing off some shopping!  

You can cook your own Christmas feast just the way you like it in the fully equipped, modern kitchen. You will find everything you need to cook a delicious roast with all the trimmings.

Luxury self-catering apartments will come in a range of sizes, from 1-bedroom apartments to larger apartments with separate living spaces and multiple bedrooms. These apartments can offer 3-5 times more space than a hotel room, so sit back and relax!

You also get all of the conveniences of being at home such as broadband, Wi-Fi, parking and a fully equipped kitchen, as well as extra services such as cleaning.  

Overall, a serviced apartment provides that extra space which is perfect for entertainment that may be needed to have all the family together at Christmas.
