Belfast-Based Serviced Apartments Provider Central Belfast Apartments Records 60% Increase In Bookings
According to The Belfast Telegraph, Belfast-based serviced apartments provider Central Belfast Apartments experienced a 60% increase in bookings last month as restrictions were lifted in Northern Ireland.
The group said that the figures are in comparison to April, and also announced that their 23 properties have reached 86% confirmed capacity for the summer months.
According to the group's managing director, Dave Cordner, "The recent flood in bookings demonstrates the pent-up demand for staycations and exploring the incredible attractions and hospitality that we have on our doorstep here in Belfast."
The rise in sales is an all-time high for the Central Belfast Apartments group.
"In the past, a significant portion of our customers came from America and Europe, and although we cannot wait to welcome our European and international visitors back to Belfast, our focus this summer is on securing bookings and attracting visitors from across Ireland and the UK, and the signs are good, the demand is there," added Cordner.
In the week that restrictions were eased towards the end of April, Central Belfast Apartments saw a 118% increase in website hits.
The company noted a sizable number of enquiries from families choosing apartment rentals for the first time.
The company has also recently added five new properties to its offering.
Elsewhere in Belfast, Stena Line has announced they are running a temporary service between Holyhead and Belfast, as demand surges for the group's services from other ports to Belfast.
