Accredited Serviced Apartments - Travel with Safety and Confidence
Accredited Serviced Apartments - Travel with Safety and Confidence4th May 2021
In the new travel landscape, ensuring accommodation is as safe as possible for guests is of paramount importance. In 2019 we began our compliance and accreditation programme, aimed at encouraging our property partners to optimise their health and safety levels in line with our policies and gain accreditation from our recommended accreditation bodies, Common Sense Compliance and Quality in Tourism, as well as recognised body ISAAP. When the COVID pandemic struck in 2020, we modified our guidelines accordingly, resulting in an upsurge in properties gaining COVID specific health and safety accreditation. The very nature of serviced apartments makes them safer than hotels – providing more space and better distancing as standard – but SilverDoor serviced apartments bearing the accreditation certification logo are unparalleled in terms of their health and safety processes. Below are just a few examples of standout properties which have received such accreditations to ensure complete guest safety.
Panorama Apartments, Ashford
Located in Ashford, Kent, Panorama Apartments are well positioned for business in the South East. These stylish apartments are lovingly maintained and presented, and, most importantly, have earned the prestigious Quality in Tourism Safe, Clean and Legal accreditation. In addition to complying with various compliance, health and safety and insurance requirements, the apartments have also demonstrated the additional standards set by Quality in Tourism for the post-COVID landscape. This means corporate travellers can enjoy their stay with peace of mind, knowing that all necessary precautions have been taken to minimise the risk of infection amongst guests and staff.
With each unit featuring two bedrooms and either king size or twin size beds, Panorama Apartments are suitable for business trips away with family or colleagues. Simple, homely rooms provide plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the designated cooking, dining and leisure areas, while chargeable on-site parking means you can commute to and from your apartment with ease.
Premier Suites Manchester
Based in the hugely popular Norther Quarter of Manchester, Premier Suites Manchester boasts pristine one and two bedroom apartments ideal for business travellers to the city. Particularly appealing it the property’s range of accreditations, including the Common Sense Compliance Safe to Visit+ certification.
Another of our recommended accreditations, the Safe to Visit scheme was launched specifically to enhance a property’s COVID safety optimisation – making it a safe place for guests and employees alike. The Safe to Visit+ accreditation goes one step further, indicating that Premier Suites Manchester demonstrates full health and safety and fire safety compliance.
Well positioned for access to the city proper, the apartments are also just a short walk away from Manchester Arndale and countless shopping and restaurant options. Nearby is also the Shudehill Interchange and Manchester Victoria Station, meaning trips to your business meetings around Manchester and beyond can be easily facilitated.
ISAAP Accredited Partners

This means that even when travelling abroad clients can stay in serviced apartments with confidence, knowing that their accommodation providers are actively ensuring guest safety.
