SHANKLIN HOTEL CHAIN EXPERIENCING BUMPER BOOKINGS IN STAYCATION BOOM

Published:

UK hotel chain Daish’s Holidays has reported a 495% increase in bookings as Brits look to flock to staycation destinations such as the Isle of Wight this Spring and Summer.

Daish’s, which operate a large hotel in Shanklin, has analysed data from 1st March to 22nd March to see that the majority of bookings made in this peak period were for June 2021 holidays, when the government hopes to lift all social distancing restrictions – a 699% increase compared to bookings made in the same period for June 2019.

Specifically, Daish’s Hotel in Shanklin has seen a 262% increase in bookings when compared to the same period in 2019.

Paul Harper, Sales and Marketing Director at Daish’s Holidays, explained:

“Spring and summer bookings have rapidly increased since January and it is evident that people feel reassured holidays on home soil can go ahead this year.”

Autumn and winter bookings are also on the rise compared to 2019, with October to December breaks receiving an average 418% increase during this same period in March.

Paul added:

“It is reassuring to see that the influx of bookings are not just being made for summer, but we are also benefitting from a similar surge for the winter months. This will allow the business to start financially recovering from our temporary closures and lay the foundations for future growth in 2022.”

Good news for the hotel industry. Bumper bookings, crikey, I feel a third wave coming on with all the visitors intending to visit not only in the summer months but in the autumn and winter also. Masks and distancing must remain in force.

You sound like a right ray of Sunshine don’t you. Can’t win with islanders at all, no tourists means no money and business, you want to lvie on a thriving island then deal with it, don’t complain about 6 odd months down the line when you don’t even know what’s going to happen, Joe publics now thinking they’re professionals with all this wave coming crap. At some point this will all be over with and we will be going back out, if you don’t like that then stay in your home and let us actually live instead of going out and just complaining about everyone. It’s you lot that’s the problem in this society! !

Big excuse you…..wind your neck in. I am a key worker and have worked through the pandemic without a having had a single sick day off. You obviously are not aware of what is going on in Europe. As soon as people start mixing and going out, it all seems to start up again. Wake up and get with the program Boris Johnson. Name just about says it all really!!!!
