An independent UK hotel operator has launched a full range of staycation offers for Brits yearning to fill up their travel calendars throughout the summer – and beyond.

Apex Hotels, which has 10 properties in five major UK cities, including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, Bath and London has created a curated selection of breaks and offers to satisfy the wanderlust of any city break lover.

Clinton Campbell, Commercial Director at Apex Hotels, said: “As travel has re-opened following the pandemic, many people have opted for travel to more remote and rural locations – but as people begin to reclaim their freedoms in line with restrictions being lifted even further, we’re seeing more people looking to venture into the city for their staycations.

“Travellers have missed the hustle and bustle that comes with a fantastic city break – and there are so many wonderful places to visit across the UK with fabulous tourist attractions as well as hidden gems located off the beaten track. We want to encourage UK staycationers back to the big cities to re-acquaint themselves with everything they have to offer.

“So we’ve launched ‘Destination Staycation’ to help guests choose the perfect experience to suit them – whether they want to catch-up with friends or spend more quality time with loved ones, with a bit of escapism thrown in.”

‘Destination Staycation’ features a range of short city break offers, including:

Botanical Break

Experience a ‘staycaygin’ with a twist – including a Hendrick’s Gin virtual tasting plus City Sightseeing tickets for a hop-on, hop-off bus tour in Edinburgh, Glasgow or Bath…or choose between the bus or a river cruise in London. An overnight stay with breakfast is also included, with breaks starting from just £148 per room, per night.

Night Fever: Designing Club Culture

Soak up some club culture – as well as city sights – in Scotland’s City of Discovery, Dundee. This break includes tickets to V&A Dundee’s latest exhibit, which showcases the world’s most iconic nightclubs from the 1960s to today, as well as an overnight stay at the four-star Apex City Quay Hotel & Spa complete with complimentary bottle of Prosecco, full Scottish breakfast and late check out. All from £120 for two people.

Mates Escape

Get together with friends you haven’t been able to spend time with on a city escape to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee, Bath or London. Book two or more rooms or suites for that all important girls’ weekend or lads’ getaway, and enjoy a bottle of Lanson le Black Champagne and a £50 food and beverage credit per room – with plenty of time to make memories, thanks to a late check out.

Weekday Wind Down

Use up some of that remaining annual leave, book a babysitter (or dog-sitter) and indulge in a mid-week overnight stay. Not only will you enjoy a bottle of Lanson le Black Champagne and a £30 credit towards a delicious dinner or crafty cocktail, you’ll also get to make the most of a sneaky weekday break with an early check in and late check out. Available in London, Bath, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee.

Shop & Stay

After more than a year of almost exclusively shopping online, enjoy a stylish city break in one of the shopping capitals of the UK – Edinburgh. Apex Hotels has partnered with high-end Harvey Nichols to offer a private personal shopping experience with welcome glass of fizz, a £50 gift card per person to spend in store, a two-course lunch at Harvey Nichols Brasserie with coffee – as well as an overnight stay at Apex Waterloo Place Hotel, including breakfast.

Shop & Stay starts from just £249 per room. For further details, more offers or to book, go to www.apexhotels.co.uk/destination-staycation
