Winter is a beautiful season to visit a wide range of UK destinations. Cambridge is particularly stunning during the festive period, a fact that makes planning a winter staycation in Cambridge a must as we emerge from our second lockdown.

Planning your route and devising a great itinerary is more important now than ever, with Covid-19 changing the opening times and booking requirements of many of the city’s best-loved attractions.

Choosing the right accommodation is another concern for many staycation seekers. But with a solid Covid-19 safety policy in place and our ‘We’re Good to Go’ status, you won’t have to search very far for the perfect base for your Cambridge winter break.

Here, we offer a rundown of our Covid-19 safety policy so you can book and stay with Citystay with complete confidence.

Social distancing at every stage

Social distancing has become an everyday essential in our new normal, and for good reason.

By creating space we’re keeping ourselves, others and entire communities safe. Here Health Fitness Revolution reveals the importance of social distancing in today’s society:

“Social distancing, along with regular hand-washing and good hygiene practices, reduces the odds of people unknowingly spreading and contracting the virus.

This especially helps vulnerable populations… Due to testing delays and limits, it is currently impossible to know who has the coronavirus, which makes social distancing a very important practice.”

At Citystay, we’re making social distancing throughout your stay even easier. All our guests will have individual entrances to their apartments to reduce interaction with others and decrease the risk of infection.

A better choice for a more enjoyable staycation

Serviced apartments are often considered as accommodation after hotels. But thankfully (and finally) the tables are turning.

Whilst we’ve always known, and shared, the benefits that serviced accommodation can unlock for leisure and business travellers, these advantages are amplified as we look to enjoy travel safely.

Our apartments, after all, offer a safer place to stay for trips long and short. With everything you need to hand, you can enjoy a home away from home during your break.

Our fully equipped kitchens are just one of the many features that ensure a safer, more satisfying trip.

By being able to prepare and enjoy your meals in your apartment there’s less reliance on crowded hotel restaurants and takeaways.

A cleaner, safer experience

Our kitchens are also equipped with washer and dryer facilities, meaning you can do your laundry during your stay.

Cleanliness is enhanced further thanks to rigorous deep cleaning by specialist teams in between each stay.

High-touch areas, such as door handles, light switches, room tables, safes, coffee machines, and TV remotes, are disinfected regularly too.

We still provide an incredible housekeeping service so keeping the apartment clean and pristine isn’t up to you.

Our housekeeping teams are there to uphold our exceptional standards of cleanliness and wear PPE at all times to complete their duties.

Safe accommodation for business and leisure

We not only accommodate those visiting Cambridge for leisure. Our serviced apartments are popular among business travellers, and even amid a pandemic, they remain a great, safe place to work and grow your business.

Working from your home away from home is easy with Citystay. All apartments provide the space and comfort needed to double as a place to work and a place to play. They’re also equipped with desks and high-speed WiFi.

We’re here for you during these difficult times

All our staff have been trained to deliver a safe, enjoyable and Covid-secure experience with confidence.

All their duties are carried out with the latest Covid-19 protocols in mind to ensure the pandemic doesn’t put a dampener on your post-lockdown visit to Cambridge.
