COST

Serviced accommodation is generally cheaper than hotels. Not only do you get more square metres for the price, but you also gain many other perks from opting to stay in Serviced Accommodation.

Many hosts provide discounts for longer stays too. It’s always worth checking with the provider before you book to see what rates they can offer. As most properties are privately owned, this gives hosts much more flexibility and freedom to offer versatile stay rates.

AMENITIES

The convenience of having cooking and cleaning facilities at a place you are staying, whether due to working in the area or staying in a holiday home, is not a benefit to be overlooked.

Having the facilities to prepare, cook, and store food is a great benefit of staying in serviced accommodation. Most properties also have laundry facilities such as washers/dryers, which can also be hugely helpful when staying away from home. Coffee Lover?

FAMILY / GROUP FRIENDLY

Many serviced accommodation providers like to add additional quirks to make them ‘stand out’ from the crowd. This means that adding things like books and board games at the property or hot tubs, foosball table and games consoles means there is something for everyone.

Got kids? Do they get bored easily? Chances are there will be boredom busters dotted around your Serviced Accommodation property.

 

PET-FRIENDLY

Many people struggle to find quality accommodation for themselves and their pets! That’s why so many more serviced accommodation providers are becoming pet-friendly.

Some serviced accommodation properties (like ours) even have pet facilities such as food and water bowls, treat jars and poop bags. We know that pets are part of the family, and we encourage our guests to bring your fur babies on holiday with you.

AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCE

LIVING ROOM BLUE PUFFIN - serviced accommodation properties

Many hosts will know the area their properties are located in like the back of their hand. They either live or have lived or frequented the area in the past.

This is an excellent benefit to consider when looking for the right property as hosts can provide you with local knowledge, personal recommendations and hidden gems that you may not have found had you chosen to stay in a hotel!

An experienced host is generally a great host, which is invaluable when booking a place to stay!

REVIEWS

Unlike hotel reviews where guests might comment on the standard or cleanliness of the overall experience, guests who have stayed in serviced accommodation have a much more personal relationship with the owner or host and, in most cases, will have gotten to communicate with them directly. So, the reviews you are reading about will combine their experience with the property and location and their view of the host’s service. That is a benefit well worth taking into consideration.
