Prestige Apartments Southampton is a family business run by Antonia and John, with help from other family members and other trusted staff.
"We've chosen to specialise in serviced apartments, dealing with business lets in particular. We pride ourselves on being a genuinely local company, offering a truly personal service and authentic local knowledge.
One of our main advantages is that we are Southampton based, with offices local to our properties; we are here for our guests and can offer immediate attention to deal with any problems, and with at least 75% of our business now coming from returning bookings – we must be getting something right!
Prestige Apartments is a respected family business, well known in Southampton's Canal Walk area since 1890, when my great-grandparents, and later my grandfather, rented out rooms. My grandfather went on to purchase properties in the Winchester Road, St Denys, Anglesey Road and then Shirley Road areas, where we are still well established.
I've been involved with the business from the age of 14, when I collected rent for both my father and grandfather. Now, more than 30 years on, I'm pleased to share my experience on both sides of the rental business.
I'm Southampton born and bred and have spent all of my business life in the city. My husband, John, has many years experience with the Cunard Company and has worked with, met and served many famous people. Between us we've virtually seen and done it all, and we would like to give you the opportunity to benefit from our experience."
