What is a serviced apartment?

Providing the convenient services of a quality hotel and the private living space of a private rented property, serviced apartments offer the best of both worlds for business travellers. The space and flexibility a serviced apartment provides simply makes life easier while conducting business away from home. Luxurious and high quality accommodation can make the difference between a moderate success and a major one in the world of business travel. Below are some of the key advantages our apartments offer:

·         Excellent value: Compared with hotel suites offering similar amenities and fittings, our serviced apartments offer much better value for money. This saving is enhanced for business travellers choosing a long-stay apartment, as beyond a certain threshold a nightly tax reduction is passed onto the client, meaning additional savings can be made. This makes our apartments particularly useful and cost effective for colleagues relocating and in need of temporary long-term accommodation while awaiting a permanent residence.

·         Convenient services. Like a hotel, many of our apartments feature on-site services included in the cost of your stay. These range from standard housekeeping, to fitness centres, swimming pools and conference rooms. In addition, there are often on-site restaurants, bars, cinema rooms and parking areas. All these features can be tailored to you, and are designed to make your stay optimised for convenience.

·         A home from home experience. The provision of a fully fitted kitchen, separate living areas and beautifully decorated spaces all adds to a sense of homeliness, privacy and flexibility. Having the option to stay in and cook is sometimes a comforting notion, particularly after a long journey or a busy day of business appointments. Similarly, knowing you have a peaceful and private space in which to relax, work or even entertain is a real luxury when compared with the experiences most types of accommodation can offer.

What do I need to know about staying in Bendigo?

Situated in Victoria, Australia, approximately 93 miles North West of the larger city of Melbourne, Bendigo has a population of around 95,000. This makes it the fourth-largest inland city in Australia, and although a relatively new city (thanks to the discovery of gold in its soils in the 1850s) Bendigo has a rich culture and economy which attracts many business travellers from across the world.

Transport

Bendigo is served by its own small airport, with flights running between Sydney and the city several times a week. Alternatively, entry to the city can be made via the Calder Freeway which links to Melbourne. The city is also connected via rail, with the Bendigo line running south to Melbourne and north to multiple other lines. The CBD of the city is where the majority of the bus services run from, whereas a few trams still run, but mainly catering to tourists and not to the general population for convenient public transportation.

Weather

Though typically warm as you would expect from an Australian city, Bendigo is cooler than its coastal counterparts, with the average high temperature being in February at just 19 degrees. Lows in July are usually around 9 degrees.

What else is Bendigo known for?

History

Bendigo got its name after the area was transformed into sheep grazing lands by white settlers, and a local river was named after the English bare-knuckle fighter William Abednego “Bendigo” Thompson. When gold was discovered in 1851, the area exploded in population, with 40,000 flocking to the area in less than a year. First a tent city, Bendigo grew into an urban centre throughout the 1850s and 1860s as demand for services and housing grew. By 1862 was connected via rail, which allowed for the dramatic growth which followed.
