Planning a post-lockdown city break? Here’s why you rent a serviced apartment!

Posted on January 31, 2021

It’s safe to say that the travel plans of the past year or so have been well and truly scuppered. But with the nation’s Covid-19 vaccine roll-out going strong and infection rates dropping daily, now is the perfect time to think ahead to how you’ll make up for lost time during 2021 and beyond.

The great British staycation has been extremely popular for a number of reasons, with the city break reigning supreme amongst solo adventurers, couples and corporate travellers in particular. Sunderland is a great destination for those looking for the best of the city, country and coast, and those planning a post-lockdown trip to the city could experience so much more thanks to their accommodation choice.

In this blog post, we take a closer look at why serviced apartments are the best choice for post-lockdown city breakers…

More space for work and play

Serviced apartments may already be a popular choice with corporate travellers, but those travelling for leisure can gain even more from their city break.

On average, a serviced apartment offers 30% more space that a standard hotel room. This means you’ll have more room to work, play, cook, unwind, and rest up after a long day of sightseeing.

A home away from home

We crave home comforts more now than ever, and as serviced apartments offer the perks of self-catering accommodation and a luxury hotel, you’ll be able to enjoy the very best of both worlds.

Our serviced apartments are your home away from home. Guests have the freedom and flexibility to do their city break their way as well as enjoy the advantages of linen changing and cleaning. Serviced apartment stays are great choices for all, particularly families who need the comfort and facilities of home to hand.

You’ll find everything you need to make your trip a comfortable one with our 4* serviced apartments fully equipped with their own kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms.

An affordable alternative

Whether you’re staying for a weekend or a little longer, serviced accommodation offers excellent and unrivalled value for money. As a result, you’ll have extra cash to spend on the things you love doing during your city break, whether that’s indulging in some retail therapy at The Bridges or heading to Roker and Seaburn Beaches for a slap-up fish supper and an ice cream.

The very best location

Any staycation or holiday is made better by the location of the accommodation. One of the many perks of going serviced is its fantastic, central location. At Hawksley House, you’re at the centre of the action, just a stone’s throw away from bars, restaurants, shops and local travel links.
