Introduction To Serviced Accommodation in 2017

In Conversation With Paul Winder From Residential Estates, Chester

A Serviced Apartment In The Centre Of Manchester

We’re at a recent serviced accommodation project.

I just wanted to give you a bit of a walk around and show you what’s involved in a serviced apartment, what type of things to consider in terms of furniture packs as well.

This is a one bedroom apartment. It’s in Manchester City Centre, so it’s a fantastic location.

I’ll try and give you a bit of an idea and Josh, the camera man, will give you a bit of feel for what the room is currently.

The Bedroom

It’s only a one bedroom property, so it doesn’t need to be anything too crazy in terms of sizes.

You don’t have to go to three bedrooms, things like that.

One bedroom’s perfect, two bedroom’s very good as well.

You can see here, in terms of furniture packs, what’s included.

You’ve got, not just a bed, but it’s fully furnished, in the respect that someone can just turn up with a bag and then they’re ready to go.

Blinds have just recently been installed.

There’s still some soft furnishings and stuff that need to be added. These are pictures, mirrors, things like that.

But otherwise, it’s pretty good, it’s pretty ready to go, really.

So it just gives you a bit of a feel for what’s involved in serviced accommodation.

The Bathroom

Next room – we’re going to show you the views as well.

But first, the bathroom.

So, it’s quite nice, standard, good quality in terms of the fixtures and fittings, styling the tiling and stuff as well.

Here, our serviced apartment is trying to compete with four-star hotels.

The Lounge

And then, into the main communal area, the main lounge area.

It’s a nice looking decent kind of space.

You’ve got very simple kitchen, dining room area. Everything that the client is going to need from the serviced accommodation point of view.

So, as we said before, you can literally turn up with your suitcase and it’s ready to go. So, it’s a very effective model for companies wishing to rent the property out.

The Location

We’ve done some other videos talking about service accommodation and what’s involved in these types of projects.

On this particular kind of site, location is very important.

What I’ll try and show is show you outside as well to give you a bit of an idea as to where it is in Manchester.

Not all the properties need to be like this, but the location is fantastic on this one.

So where we currently are now is overlooking Manchester City Centre.

You can just see the level of development that’s currently happening.

It’s already happened as well, so you’ve got lots of new-build developments happened over the last couple of years.

Even now, most of the buildings most of the vacant plots of land still have cranes on them.

There are lots of new developments happening. Everything from residential units to commercial office space, retail, restaurants. It’s a fantastic spot.

For service accommodation or corporate let, you need to be in the heart of the town.

It’s very important to be … It doesn’t have to have this fantastic view, but it’s very important to have a property that’s in close proximity to all of these elements.
