Often found in many of our larger cities, Serviced Apartments offer hotel services such as a maid service and concierge, in addition to a self-contained unit with a kitchen. There may also be a formal process for handling bookings, arrivals and departures.

New Owner/Selling your business? Please note, if and when an establishment is sold, participation in the scheme does not automatically continue. Please contact our helpline on 0845 300 6996 if you are selling your business or if you are a new owner who wishes to find out the rules regarding change of ownership.

There are no separate designators in Serviced Apartments, however in most cases they are not exclusively urban, with accommodation rated in a similar standard to the Self-Catering scheme.
