Hotels are great. Great if you want a quick overnight sleep fix, a central location or just a place to meet with friends and family. However, they can be very expensive. It’s OK paying for the room but when it comes to the hidden extras in check-out it can hit the wallet hard. That’s where we come in. For the price of just one hotel room you could have a whole apartment. Here are the 7 reasons to choose serviced accommodation over a hotel.
1. Value For Money
For the price of that ‘cheap’ hotel room you could be staying in a luxury property. All come with a fully equipped kitchen so you can cook for yourself or guests, dining tables and chairs are provided and we’ll even offer to fill up the fridge with our food packs so it takes the hassle out of shopping on arrival.
The bedrooms are the height of luxury and fresh linen is provided as well as welcome toiletries and kitchen cleaning materials. Oh, and there is even a washing machine so you can do all the laundry before you head home.
You pay PER property not PER person. We even allow pets in some allocated properties too.
2. No Restrictions
There is nothing worse than getting that knock on the door from the hotel cleaners ousting you out so they can make the bed, change the linen and empty the bins. And you were having such a nice sleep. With Town Or Country it’s YOUR space, YOUR time. After all, one of our values include giving you that ‘home from home’ experience. If you fancy a sleep in tell us, we’ll pop around when it is best for you. Your privacy is guaranteed. (We’ll call you before hand to check the best time for our Maid Service to clean the property).
3. Free STUFF!
Every property comes with fast Broadband and WiFi. FREE. We have modern entertainment systems too that include LCD TV with Freeview/DVD so you can relax on the sofa and watch whatever you want. FREE. All our bedrooms come with modern clock/radio alarms, some that connect with your MP3/Smartphone device. FREE.
There must be a catch when I checkout?
No, the price you get is the price you pay. Any extras that occur you will be notified of. Unlike hotels we won’t charge per hour per megabite either.
All our properties are centrally located and never too far from main connections to motorway or public transport. We try and do our best to make your stay as comfortable as possible and so inform you of the latest events nearest your property via our blog, Facebook or Twitter pages. We offer the best places to socialise, eat or drink via our Discount Card scheme – offering 10-20% off your bill, exclusive to all our guests saving you time and money.
Secure parking is available too taking the hassle out of finding a space either late at night or during rush hour.
We offer regular updates on where to go with family, friends or if you just fancy a walk around the area. Many of our apartments and houses are located in desirable areas – whether you fancy waking up in Ocean Village Marina, surrounded by the history of South Western House or relax in a modern duplex we can cater for all your needs.
5. Always There
We are there 24 hours a day. OK, the hotel reception is just one phone call away yet we will always go the extra mile to help you out whether it be a lost set of keys to an extra z-bed. We’ll do our best to make you happy whatever the situation. Our dedicated maintenance team are always ready and waiting.
But I won’t arrive until late at night?
No problem. Just pop along to one of our secure ‘drop boxes’ at the office and we’ll send you the info of codes, where your property is and issue a Welcome Pack with everything you need.
6. Going The Extra Mile.

7. What You See Is Not What You Always Get.
We often have special offers on all our properties. So the price you see may not be the price you pay! Keep a lookout for exclusive offers via the website and social media.
So, that hotel booking is not looking so attractive after all. We are the hotel alternative.
