What Are Serviced Apartments

Gordon Moon Suites provides serviced accommodation in the heart of Bolton town centre.

Serviced accommodation is part of a growing trend of travel, with guests looking to stay at places that are more a home away from home rather than just a place to sleep.

But what does that mean in reality, what exactly is it about serviced apartments that offers guests so much more?

What is the difference between a rented apartment and a serviced apartment?

Serviced apartments are based on a short term rental period, more similar to a hotel than a standard rental apartment.

We offer stays from as little as two nights, but we also have guests who stay with us for many months for both business and leisure.

Our serviced apartments include all bills, such as electricity, within the nightly rate, in a similar way to a hotel.

What is the difference between service apartments and hotels?

The main difference between serviced apartments and a hotel is the extra facilities provided.

All our apartments include your own living area, dining area, fitted bathrooms and kitchen, complete with washing machine, dishwasher and a dining table.

Utensils, cooking pots and pans, towels and linen are all provided. The apartments are spacious and there’s plenty of cupboard and drawer storage, ideal for longer-term stays.

That allows you to cook your own food and treat the apartment largely like your own home rather than the ‘living from a suitcase’ feel of a hotel room, providing only a place to sleep and wash.

Benefits of serviced apartments

Serviced apartments have many benefits over a traditional hotel.

Kitchen facilities

Serviced apartments provide full kitchen facilities, complete with an oven, hobs, a fridge and freezer.

Utensils, pots and pans are all provided, allowing you to settle straight in and treat it as your own kitchen.

Our apartments are also centrally located, within walking distance of supermarkets allowing you to easily stock up and cook your own food throughout your stay.

Comfortable living area

Serviced apartments provide much larger living spaces than hotel equivalents.

All our apartments provide a sitting area with large sofas and Smart TV with complimentary Netflix.

They offer you a spacious area to enjoy your spare time, rather than the small armchairs often provided in similarly priced hotel rooms.


With a private kitchen, bathroom and living area serviced apartments offer a large amount of privacy.

Much like in their own home, guests are able to reside in their own apartments in total privacy.

Cost effectiveness

Serviced apartments are able to offer fantastic value for the facilities guests receive.

Nightly rates tend to be very competitive with hotel alternatives, especially for the larger two-bedroom apartment, where the alternative may be two separate hotel rooms.

Added to that, there are usually fewer ‘added’ costs for serviced apartments. Utilities such as Wi-Fi are fully included in the nightly rate of our serviced apartments, whereas many hotels charge extra for full Wi-Fi access.

The ability to cook your own meals also creates a large price reduction, especially for any longer stay guests.

Space to relax

Serviced apartments generally offer a lot more space than similar hotel rooms.

Our apartments provide plenty of space throughout the bedrooms, kitchen, living room and bathrooms. The apartments even have their own corridor, ideal spots to hang coats or leave shoes when you get in.

They offer a space that genuinely allows guests to relax, rather than the often cramped feeling of hotel rooms.

Where are Gordon Moon Suites Serviced Apartments

Our apartments are located right in the heart of Bolton town centre, on the main shopping street of Bolton, just outside the entrance to The Market Place.

That means they are within walking distance to plenty of amenities such as the railway station, shops, cafes,  bars and restaurants.

Their pedestrianised zone location also means they are quiet in the night, allowing guests to have a peaceful night’s sleep.
