The evidence submitted alongside several guest reviews touched on how Citystay strive to put the needs of the guest first in all aspects of the business and that can be neatly summed up in from the following guest review which can be found on TripAdvisor;
“I travel to the UK regularly for business and always stay at Citystay Apartments. I have been fortunate to stay at quite a few of their locations in Cambridge. The apartments are comfortable, exceedingly clean and conveniently located to everything Cambridge has to offer. The whole experience from booking the accommodations to checking out is wonderful, everything is about what is most convenient for the guest. The apartments are roomy and luxurious, huge fluffy towels, high quality bedding, kitchens with everything anyone would need to prepare a delicious meal. All the comforts of home! What makes it better than home is the wonderful staff. From booking the apartment to checking in, a member of Citystay’s warm and friendly staff is there to ensure the experience is perfect.”
