The apartments we own or lease comply with high standards of environmental management regarding energy consumption, waste handling and material sourcing.
On average serviced apartments are more than 30% cheaper than staying in a hotel room of equivalent quality. The international Association of Serviced Apartment Providers rate ESA apartments “Very Good to Excellent”, comparable to a 4-5 star hotel rating. There is scope for further economies if a two bedroom apartment is occupied by two people on the same project. That’s because the price is based per apartment not per person.
When you step into an ESA apartment, you feel at home, not just a guest. With separate bedrooms, living space and kitchen – fully furnished and equipped throughout – you can divide up your time and activities in the natural way you would at home. As a member of the global Association of Serviced Apartment Providers, we adhere to their standards of accommodation, customer service, comfort, privacy, value for money and safety.
Your kitchen is fully fitted and equipped (including dishwasher) to the high standards you would expect at home, so you can cook as you would at home - whether it’s to entertain colleagues or clients, make a quick fresh snack or a favourite breakfast. For convenience, we can arrange meals to make with pre-prepared ingredients.
As a resident with your own front door, you have the freedom to work, relax or have a meeting whenever you please. The longer you stay the more important it is to have your own space instead of having to go out to escape the boredom of living in one room for months. Quietness is a key feature of our apartments, so you can enjoy uninterrupted privacy to the full.
Coming home from a demanding day on site, you can spread yourself across your living room sofa and immerse yourself in all that the latest and best in home entertainment technology can provide - unlimited high speed Wi-Fi, Smart TV and Sky Max, an array which is continually upgraded.
When living in another city, region or country, it’s good to have authentic experiences to remember. As an ESA apartment resident you get more than a taste of local life, you share in it. Elite Apartments are in central, sought-after but secluded spots within real communities. By shopping, eating-out, drinking and relaxing as locals do you get to know them and their culture. Instead of room service, an experience of real life.
Naturally, when people are working away for long periods, what they miss most is family life. ESA apartments have two or more bedrooms plus bathrooms; and they are spacious. Family members have freedom to be themselves when they come to visit for however long, or stay there whilst seeking a permanent home - flexibility no hotel can offer.
It’s good to have you own car to get to and from the project site, do business around the area or get away to the beautiful places nearby. So it’s good to know you have a designated, secure parking space right beside your building. Residents appreciate the fact that ESA apartments are situated strategically for fast access to main road, rail and air links.
Until we get the call, we seldom know how many people a company wants to send, when or for how long. But we do know we have the resources to accommodate whatever is demanded. What’s more, we recognise the advantages of keeping company staff together by providing multiple apartments in same location. Living in a “village”, people work better because they can relax together.
When new residents arrive, we welcome them individually, show them round, demonstrate how everything works and give them inside information about making the most of the locality. Throughout their stay, we take care of the cleaning and change of bedlinen and are on-call 24/7 with help and answers to any questions or requests that come up. With ESA it’s personal.
I have been living in ESA’s serviced apartments for 2 ½ months and it has felt like a second home to me during a very busy work assignment. The furnishings and facilities are excellent and any minor maintenance issues have been resolved promptly and efficiently. The apartments are situated in a secluded mews in central Yarm which is very quiet and yet only a few minutes’ walk to local restaurants, pubs and other services. The very friendly team regularly checks in to ensure that I have everything I need and the weekly cleaning service is excellent and much appreciated given my busy schedule. I couldn’t have wished for a more comfortable stay.

Tarragona is a gorgeous port and resort on the Costa Dorada (Golden Coast) about an hour’s drive or rail journey south of Barcelona. Having a population of 132,000 it has the amenities of a city combined with a village-like intimacy. Once the capital of the Roman Empire in Spain, today Tarragona is a place where history and culture are crowned with blue skies, blessed with beautiful beaches and an abundance of fine wine and cuisine. A beach called “miracle”, beside a Roman amphitheatre viewed from a terrace at the end of a Barcelona style Rambla, that’s the essence of Tarragona.
The business of Sitges may be pleasure, but for those with work assignments in Catalonia it is a commutable 35 mile distance from commercial capital Barcelona, making this old established resort town a relaxing place to be based. The town is full to bursting with classic art deco buildings and the seafront promenade is lined with palm trees. Its comparatively small size (28,000 inhabitants) makes it easy to get to know its quieter bars and classy restaurants – in contrast to clubs and nightlife famous Europe-wide – especially during the off-season. Having resisted mass tourism in the Fifties and Sixties,
Barcelona is the capital and largest city of Catalonia and Spain‘s second largest city, with a population of over one and half million. However, this beautiful city is compact enough for walking almost anywhere – from the beach which rests warmly in the Mediterranean Sea, all the way up Las Ramblas to the Placa De Catalunya which is the hub of the city centre, pausing at outdoor markets, restaurants, shops, museums and churches and losing yourself in medieval alleys of the Gothic Quarter. The longer you stay in your centrally situated ESA apartment, the more you’ll appreciate what an amazing combination of history,

Every apartment has a folder with helpful general facts about doctors, schools, police, tourist attractions, cafes etc., but we plan to upgrade this to information accessed on a tablet and specific to an individual’s profile e.g. For a health and fitness fan – local gym, physio, cycle routes, sports venues, organic eating.

Apartments are self-catering, but residents in Elite apartments get started with a Welcome Hamper, and we can make eating-in easy with “Hello Fresh”, book caterers for special occasions and recommend local eateries and delivery services.
