Ireland: Dublin-based aparthotel operator Staycity Group has reported rising occupancies across its UK and Ireland estate and revealed that a number of new properties are poised to open as part of the company's ongoing expansion plans.

Following more than a year when travel came to a grinding halt, Staycity reported that occupancy for August 2021 had reached 85 per cent across its 14 UK and Ireland properties, compared with 91 per cent for 2019 and 54 per cent in 2020.

September looks equally strong, with occupancy at 84 per cent compared with 89 per cent in 2019 and 65 per cent in 2020.

Staycity Group commercial director Paula Mullaney said: “Weekend bookings for October and the mid-term break at the end of the month are also encouraging. Based on our current occupancy levels, we are expecting bookings to continue to perform well as we move into November and December.

"Consumers are regaining the confidence to travel again, but with much foreign travel still experiencing Covid-related issues, people are focusing their attention on destinations closer to home, including the beautiful, historic cities across the UK and Ireland," she added.

Established in 2004, Staycity Group has a built a footprint in key European cities, including Birmingham, Dublin, Edinburgh, Liverpool, London, Manchester and York. 

This year, Staycity has opened new properties in Bordeaux, Heidelberg and Manchester, with further openings due in London and Manchester before the end of 2021.
