A luxury stay

Luxury City Apartments lets a range of exclusive, serviced properties right in the heart of Norwich

Much of her serviced accommodation is situated at the very centre of the historic city, within walking distance of some of its finest sights, while other properties are within a five-mile radius of Norwich, offering proximity to other Norfolk beauty spots as well.

“What all the apartments and houses have in common is the high level of service,” Emily explains. “Whether someone is staying in a one-bedroom apartment or a larger country cottage,
they will find it furnished with everything they could possibly need for their stay.

“Bed linen and towels are provided; there is free wifi and parking, most of which is off-road, and for those who are booking for longer stays, the accommodation is cleaned and bed linen and towels laundered weekly.”


The idea, she explains, is to be able to visit Norfolk for a holiday or on business without having to worry about home comforts.

“What is nice about staying somewhere like this is that you can make the place your own; you can prepare meals if you wish, have guests over and enjoy more space and privacy than you are likely to have in a hotel.”

Of the city centre apartments, nine are located at the iconic Samson and Hercules, with its unusual portico featuring columns shaped like the heroes. Set on Tombland, in the historic Cathedral Quarter of Norwich, the apartment development itself is modern and stylish yet offers fabulous access to the city’s Medieval streets, spectacular cathedral and many cafés, restaurants, bars and shops.

“These range from one to three bedroom apartments and all overlook the pretty church. They are perfect for a weekend getaway or if you are in the city for work,” Emily says.

Also ideal for those keen to be close to everything vibrant Norwich has to offer are the four apartments on Quayside. This part of the city is known for its character buildings that look out across the River Wensum towards “Norwich Over the Water.”

“These apartments are very different as they are within older buildings and have original features, such as wooden floors, high ceilings and sash windows. They all have two bedrooms and particularly appeal to families on holiday – three of the apartments are on the ground floor and also therefore suit some of our guests who have mobility problems,” she adds.

Other properties currently available include a Victorian house in Norwich’s desirable Golden Triangle area and an airy apartment at stunning Rackheath Hall. This former country mansion is just a short distance from Norwich and has a fascinating history; it is also surrounded by parkland grounds and countryside.

“Rackheath Hall is a beautiful place and is well-positioned for anyone wishing to visit the Norfolk Broads or the coast, as well as the city,” says Emily.


As her portfolio grows, Emily would like to be able to offer an even greater variety of houses and apartments through Luxury City Apartments. She is therefore interested in hearing from anyone with property they might like to let.

“Norwich is such a wonderful place to visit and Norfolk has so much to enjoy as well,” she says. “And what could be better than arriving at your luxury apartment for a break and having nothing more to do than to unpack your belongings?”
