The Freedom of serviced accommodation when you’re working away
When you’re away from home on business in Milton Keynes, St Albans or Watford – whether for a few days or an extended few months, there are many benefits to choosing serviced accommodation over a hotel.
The home-away-from-home environment of serviced accommodation is conducive to increased productivity and less stress, as guests enjoy a more relaxed and homely stay.
There are many more reasons to book an apartment when working away from home, let’s take a look at a few of the highlights and benefits to serviced accommodation.
Space and flexibility
Statistics show that on average, serviced accommodation offers 30% or more space compared to a hotel suite.
This is ideal for extended contractor and relocation stays, as you have room to bring more than just a couple of items of suits and your pyjamas!
You can spread out and enjoy the space as if it were your own home, bring more personal items and store your suitcases away for the duration of your stay.
All Heliodoor apartments offer comfortable living rooms with smart TVs and Netflix, cosy bedrooms with hotel quality mattresses, and fully equipped kitchens.
So, when you arrive back after a day at work, in meetings or a training course, you can enjoy your downtime as if you were at home.
Each property also comes with a washing machine or washer/dryer, so you can pack lighter if you wish and wash your clothes when you need. Just like at home!
All of our properties feature laptop-friendly spaces and high speed internet, so when you need to catch up with the office, have a remote meeting or work from home you can do so in comfort and without the issue of slow internet sharing with 100s of hotel guests.
Your family can come and stay without additional costs
If you’re travelling on business with family, a serviced accommodation means you can spread out and enjoy a space for everyone.
However, if you are travelling alone on an extended stay and missing your family, a serviced apartment means you’ll have the space for them to come and join you during the weekends, without additional guest fees as you would have with a hotel stay.
If you are travelling with babies or toddlers some of our accommodation comes with cots and high chairs.
When you book a hotel, the cost doesn’t stop at the room booking. Breakfast might be included but you’ll end up paying for elevated lunch and dinner rates, or eating out all the time.
All Heliodoor apartments come with fully equipped modern kitchens, so you can save on hefty hotel restaurant fees and simply prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner at home, or order in from a wide choice of local restaurants if you prefer.
And the biggest cost saving of service accommodation for corporate stays, is unlike a hotel stay, the longer you stay with us, the lower the nightly rate. Your rental rate reduces for extended stays.
Premium cleaning & housekeeping
At Heliodoor Apartments, serviced accommodation means just that. We provide all of the services you might expect from a hotel stay in a more comfortable and private environment.
This includes a regular housekeeping service with fresh linen provided at each clean.

Peace & Quiet
Serviced accommodation is ideal if you appreciate peace and quiet after a hard day’s work.
Unlike hotel stays, where you’re constantly surrounded by guests and staff, our apartments are all located in premium locations within closed apartment blocks, so you can come home, shut the door to the world and just relax.

If you do bring a car, you’ll find some of our service accommodation locations provide allocated parking, so no extra costs for parking or parking tickets! For those that don’t come with parking, they are located close to public car parks for convenience.
