ASAP Quality Accreditation Programme

In any fast-growing sector there is a need to set industry targets and agree standards.

The Association of Serviced Apartment Providers – ASAP want anyone booking business travel, leisure trips or household relocations to think first of serviced apartments, because they know they can find a certain level of accommodation, of customer service, of comfort, of privacy, of value for money; and to be confident in that choice in terms of safety and standards.

ASAP aims to define the term ‘serviced apartment’, to embed it in the traveller’s psyche, and to promote a standard of accommodation they can expect to find every time.

To that end, the Association of Serviced Apartment Providers (ASAP) as a not for profit trade body, offers membership and different levels of accreditation to owners, operators and agents of serviced apartments to ensure the customer’s confidence is well-founded.

When you book an ASAP accredited Serviced Apartment provider you know that you can stay with Confidence

No room in the Inn this Christmas?

The Festive Season will soon be upon us and you are planning to spend it with your loved ones. That is the best part about Christmas but space can often be the limiting factor. When there is no ‘room in the Inn’, you are left making alternative plans (or no plans at all!). There is also the responsibility of the host to ensure guests abide by the rules of the road and don’t drink and drive. Options are, of course available to ensure you can all be together at Christmas. One obvious choice available is to book into a Hotel. Fine if just for a night and you are travelling alone. But, if you are making a booking for you, your partner and children a Hotel stay can suddenly make Christmas an even more expensive time. Besides, how festive would a cramped room be for you all?

There is an alternative! Book you and your family into a spacious serviced apartment. You pay per apartment rather than per person sharing. Fussy little eaters are easily catered for in any one of our one, two or three bedroom serviced apartments. But, most importantly you can move the furniture about, get comfortable in the spacious living-area and add a few Christmas decorations and strings of tinsel. Roast dinner cooked for Christmas in a serviced apartment

Being away from home for Christmas doesn’t mean you have to forego time with loved ones or all your festive treats. A serviced apartment stay offers guests more space, flexibility and privacy than booking into a Hotel room or Guest House. If you are travelling to Milton Keynes, Northampton or Luton then come with us to see what Cotels Serviced Apartments have to offer at each location.

Serviced apartment provides the perfect alternative

Furnished accommodation with all the basic requirements of home. You can cook, get the dish-washer to clean-up after you, keep up to date with your laundry, soak in a hot bath at the end of a day filled with exciting activities and relax in front of a flat screen TV with Sky movies at no extra cost. A weekly maid service will come in to take care of the cleaning and change of bed linen and towels.

If you fancy treating yourselves, Milton Keynes Theatre District serviced apartments neighbour the MK:Theatre and the many restaurants, pubs and coffee shops within the facility. The Tale of Dick Whittington takes to the stage for this years Festive Pantomime season – a magical delight for families of all ages – and some fun to be had for those big kids who never grew up!

There is also the Christmas display and Santa Grotto at the Centre:MK shopping mall. Or if you prefer to be outdoors, there are the famous red ways for traffic-free running, cycling or walking.

A visit to our Northampton or Luton locations offer a very similar line-up of activities from our stylishly furnished serviced apartments.
