Summer appears to have arrived, and for many of us, thoughts will be turning to holidays and trips away. Travel experts predict that this year, the cost of living crisis is likely to prompt more people to enjoy a staycation rather than a holiday abroad. It is also expected that people will enjoy shorter breaks as a way to curtail costs [1]. If you are looking to spend some time in Derby this summer but haven’t yet booked your accommodation, why not try a luxury serviced apartment?

Just a short distance from the beautiful rolling hills of the Peak District, Derby has a great deal to offer visitors. At the heart of the city is an impressive array of shops, restaurants, theatres, cafes and bars. In fact, the city, which is vying for the title of City of Culture 2029, is perfect for a short city getaway.

Choose a luxury serviced apartment this summer

One of the best ways to explore the city and the surrounding Peak District is to stay in one of Grand Central Apartments’ luxury serviced apartments in Derby. There are many reasons to make a luxury serviced apartment your accommodation of choice this summer. Cheaper than a hotel, it is ideal for those looking to keep costs down. All our apartments have a fully equipped modern kitchen, which allows you to make food you want to eat when you want to eat it.

You can come and go as you please, and if your booking is for a group, the extra space allows you to dine and relax together before retreating to your own sleeping space at night. Our apartments also boast free on-site parking, superfast broadband, modern décor and added extras such as a flat screen TV with Netflix, toiletries, towels and a hairdryer. An apartment offers the perfect ‘home from home’ experience for travellers, making it ideal for families and groups too.

Find your perfect location in Derby

Grand Central Apartments has accommodation available in many locations around the city. If your aim is to really soak up all this multicultural city has to offer, then you might want to stay in one of the more central locations. We have apartments available in the stylish Friar Gate area, giving easy access to the main areas of the city centre, including in a grade II listed converted mill. Grand Central Apartments’ Centro accommodation is nestled between the spires of Derby’s historic Cathedral, making it another ideal city centre base.

Our Littleover apartments are in an upmarket area just a short drive from the city centre but are also ideally located for exploring the wider Derbyshire area. Those looking for a stay in a quieter neighbourhood a little further out of the city but perfect for a short drive to the Peak District can find accommodation at Corporate House, Madison Avenue.
