Our team

Danielle Sawford was part of the group that founded one of Cambridge’s top luxury boutique hotels. She was instrumental in developing the service behind its excellent reviews, from creating guest directories to taking decor decisions, and looked after clients there for more than five years. She brings design flair and a can-do attitude to the serviced apartment sector.

Emmanuel Duchesne has 25 years’ experience in hospitality, and ran hotels in the Haute Savoie and Bordeaux regions of his native France. Like Danielle, Emmanuel held a senior position at a luxury boutique hotel in Cambridge, where he was involved in all aspects of the guest experience. He is a passionate advocate of attentive but unobtrusive service.

Richard Sawford is responsible for all aspects of the upkeep of the apartments. A plasterer by trade, he brings a keen eye and a commitment to high standards. He’s on hand full-time to resolve any issue quickly and without fuss.

The Lux difference

Our service is unique in Cambridge in that we own all the apartments in each location. We have all the freedom to express the Lux Living style, and all the responsibility to maintain facilities to the highest level.

It also means that guests will only ever find themselves sharing a building with other Lux Living guests. It may sound like a technicality, but it can make all the difference to your stay.
