Signature Serviced Apartments won Serviced Apartment of the Year!

We are delighted to announce that we won Serviced Apartment of the Year at the 1st ever Hotel Awards Scotland, held at the Glasgow Marriott Hotel on October 1st 2019.

To be the inaugural winner of this award is a special achievement!

Our managing director Sandra Martin had this to say: ‘This is a team award, we are so proud of the work that we do, and it is such an honour to have been chosen in light of the great company in our category!’

As Signature Serviced Apartments continues to grow, we hope this award will show our potential guests and clients, that not only is Signature the largest and most successful property provider in the central belt of Scotland, but that we are a strong figure in the Scottish property management arena as a whole. Especially considering that we have our new Dalkeith Apart Hotel that is opening soon, there are even more ways to stay with Signature!

The whole Signature Team is really proud of this amazing achievement, and a great evening of celebrating was had by all! 💃

Team Night Out at The Ivy Glasgow

We had a great night out with the team last night, celebrating another cracking year at Signature!

The team works so hard to provide the best service they can for both our clients and our guests, so it’s great to have a chance to unwind and celebrate! The dynamics of our team mean we aren’t often all together in the office, so when we do manage to get together it’s a great chance to catch up!

We were still on call with ‘the phones’ (SA never sleeps!), plus we ‘had’ to keep you updated on Facebook and the ‘gram, (check us out at @signature_apart) but we still managed to have an absolutely fantastic evening, we even celebrated a birthday!

If you haven’t tried The Ivy Glasgow, we can all highly recommend it! 😉

Can you guess which 3 team members stayed out till 3am? 🤔😱😉

Top 5 Reasons to Stay in A Serviced Apartment

Serviced apartments are becoming a more popular choice in the travel industry for both the business and the leisure traveller. A serviced apartment is a flat or house that is solely yours for the duration of your stay. You have the freedom to come and go as you please, plenty of space and your even your own kitchen to make your favourite meals!


Here is a list of the 5 top benefits to staying in a serviced apartment, particularly if your trip away from home is on the longer side!



  1. Cost effective


Choosing serviced accommodation over a hotel room can benefit your wallet!  In general terms, serviced accommodation is usually around 30% cheaper than a hotel. This is especially true, when you factor in that with a serviced apartment you have a kitchen and lounge at your disposal, rather than simply a bedroom and en-suite. The cost advantages stack up even more if you are travelling in a large group or having an extended stay away from home.




  1. Comfort


Choosing a serviced apartment means that you have comfort when you need it. There is no need to be stuck in your hotel room, or to sit in a hotel bar evening after evening. If you stay with Signature, you will have your own comfortable living room to relax in, complete with a flat screen TV and complimentary WiFi as standard.




  1. Food


Food is always a big consideration whilst staying away from home. Where to eat and the choice of food on the menu are key things to keep in mind when choosing your place to stay. A hotel menu is usually top of the list, but can be a bit restrictive, especially if you are away from home for a longer time. Eating the same things from the same menu for an extended period of time can bore your taste buds! The beauty of a serviced apartment is that you have a kitchen all to yourself. At Signature we offer a fully equipped kitchen in all of our properties. It will have all the essential utensils you need to allow you to cook up a storm! A more cost effective, and comforting way to eat during your stay!




  1. Space


Space is another great reason to choose serviced accommodation over a hotel room. With a Signature Serviced Apartment, you will not be restricted to only one room. Depending on your property selection, you will have several bedrooms, as well as a bathroom, lounge and kitchen to relax in. With serviced accommodation, you get more space for your money. You will have plenty of room to entertain guests, and if you are staying with us on business then you have a great location to meet with clients.




  1. Privacy


Privacy is a big plus to serviced apartment living. We offer weekly cleans to our long-term guests which means minimal interruptions. You will have your own space to play and relax, without the need to be out of the way for housekeeping on a daily basis.
