Join the VisitEngland Serviced Accommodation Scheme


Full membership

Serviced apartments are often in purpose-built blocks owned or partly owned by the serviced apartment operator. They will be situated in an urban location and the primary market is the corporate/business traveller. Apartments may be available for short stays but will often be open to long stays too. The apartments will offer home-from-home accommodation with an extended range of services, such as concierge and secretarial services, laundry and dry cleaning.

To be assessed under this scheme, you must have at least six serviced apartments.

As well as your establishment having a page on, you'll have access to logos and a range of signage, and marketing benefits.

Accreditation-only membership

This level of membership has been designed to provide accommodation businesses with a robust and dependable method to demonstrate that they are operating in a compliant, safe and clean way. Initially launched in 2010, the scheme has been regularly revisited to ensure it covers the latest legislation.

VisitEngland works with destinations and local assessment organisations to offer this accreditation scheme on a local level. However, if a business is in an area without a local scheme, they can apply to VisitEngland directly.

Entry Level Accreditation offers reassurance that the accommodation is compliant, safe and clean, but does not include a star rating or quality accreditation, which are  available through one of VisitEngland’s range of quality assessment schemes.
