With limited space and expensive hotel bills piling up, is there an option?

The answer is yes!

Serviced apartments in Manchester offer many of the same services you can enjoy in a hotel, but for a longer period and –this is the important part- with more space. When travelling as part of a group and particularly when travelling with family, space can quickly become an issue as room becomes cramped and tempers become frayed as a result. Serviced apartments offer more room to spread out, with separate bedrooms and a living area allowing for more peace and quiet should you need it. Other services offered by luxury serviced apartments Manchester include state of the art entertainment systems, onsite concierge, security and much more.
