What is a serviced apartment?

Being a superior form of accommodation, serviced apartments offer the ultimate corporate stay experience: blending the convenience and luxury of hotel style services, and the freedom and flexibility of a private rented space. With apartments providing all the features and amenities one could wish for when travelling on business, the benefits they provide are numerous, including:

·         Unbeatable value. Compared with hotel suites offering like-for-like services, a serviced apartment is extremely competitive on nightly rates, almost always offering better value. Furthermore, with long-stay bookings benefitting from tax cuts further reducing nightly costs, serviced apartments are especially cost effective for relocating colleagues in need of long-stay accommodation whilst awaiting a permanent residence.

·         Space and luxury. Away from busy hotel corridors, restrictive rooms and limiting meal time schedules, a serviced apartment in Christchurch offers the optimum level of luxury and freedom. Although complemented by convenient tie saving factors, such as housekeeping, you can otherwise live exactly as you wish. A fully furnished kitchen means you can cook and eat whenever you need to – meaning you can also save money on expensive meals out or in hotel restaurants. Similarly, the additional services, including fitness centres and swimming pools, which often feature with serviced apartments, mean you can maintain fitness regimes while travelling on business. All of these factors make a serviced apartment the ultimate home from home.

What do I need to know about staying in Christchurch?

Located in Bournemouth, Christchurch is the fourth most populous town in Dorset with a population of around 50,000. It is a popular British tourist destination, having many historical buildings, such as Christchurch Priory (the longest Parish Church in the UK) and beautiful beaches attracting many to enjoy its picturesque views.  

Transport

Connected to Devon and Southampton via the A35 road, Christchurch is easy to reach via car. Around the borough itself, bus services run throughout and out of the town. With Bournemouth Airport – around 4 miles away – offering European and internal flights, arriving by air is also possible.

Weather

Its south coast position affords Christchurch with comfortably warm summers, reaching 70F at times – however winters are particularly cold and can plummet to 26F. Year round it is windy and partly cloudy so waterproofs are always recommended.

What else is Christchurch known for?

Founded in 650 by missionaries, Christchurch has a fragmented history, with the threat of Danish invasion causing it become a defensive position in 890AD. Its castle was destroyed by Cromwell in 1652 when the town became a point of control in the Civil War.

Economy

In the early 2000s Christchurch saw considerable economic growth prompted by investment in transport and communication and metals and engineering. There are also multiple industrial businesses operating on the site of the former BAC works at Bournemouth airport. As mentioned, tourism plays a key role in bolstering the local economy and continues to attract multiple visitors via the airport. Agriculture continues to be a key economic earner also, with the area being mostly arable land.
