As well as being a popular seaside resort, Bournemouth on the Dorset coast also relies on business tourism, thanks in large part to the Bournemouth International Centre.
Although this sizeable Dorset town on England’s south coast is a popular destination for the British seaside holiday, business tourism is also a huge part of the economy in Bournemouth. The Bournemouth International Centre, holding a variety of exhibitions and events throughout the year, draws a lot of corporate travellers and means that, despite the obvious wealth of hotel and B&B accommodation, there is also a demand for serviced apartments in Bournemouth.
Serviced apartments give the sort of flexibility and ease of integration into the Bournemouth lifestyle that more temporary forms of accommodation can’t. Helping the business visitor feel they are more than just a tourist. SITU's Bournemouth serviced apartments place our customers right in the heart of this busy seaside town, giving them the space and comfort that means they can get on with the more important things, safe in the knowledge that they have one of our apartments to come back to at the end of the day.
