We continue to give very careful consideration to coronavirus, whilst making sure that our risk assessments and precautions remain under review, in line with current government guidance.
As our guests will know and expect, exceptional service, pristine housekeeping, hygiene and safety have always been amongst our values, and delivering these consistently is set in our nature.
Keeping our distance
We've given thought to every step of your journey from arrival and check-in, to housekeeping and room service to ensure that even whilst keeping their distance, our team can look after you with our usual warm hospitality.
We've created a delicious breakfast hamper for you which will be ready and waiting outside your door in the morning. It'll contain everything you need to start the day right, including; tea/coffee, fresh orange juice, seasonal fruit, croissant, milk & muesli, yoghurt & berries and fresh bread with butter, jam & cheese.
We ask that all guests wear face coverings when in certain public areas, in line with current Government requirements and subject to personal exemptions.
To minimise contact, we will provide our room services whilst you are out, let us know if you have a preferred time. Of course, if you’d prefer that our housekeepers don’t enter your room during your stay, just let us know at check-in. We’ll be happy to provide clean towels and amenities to your door.
We proudly hold a 5 star food hygiene rating at all of our hotels, so you can be confident that cleanliness, hygiene and safe food handling have always been high on our agenda. Working with our partners at Diversey, we’ve identified the most suitable coronavirus-effective cleaning products for use in our hotels.
We promise that our experienced housekeepers will have taken time and care to ensure that your bedroom has been meticulously cleaned and fully disinfected, following a detailed checklist and ensuring extra attention to high-touch areas, such as TV remotes, taps and telephones.
Staffing levels have been set to ensure that public spaces can be continuously cleaned and disinfected throughout the day.
Behind the scenes
You can be confident that we hold ourselves to the same top cleanliness standards back of house as we do in our guest spaces, and we’ve taken steps to ensure that our employees can observe social distancing too.
Our employees are taught the best handwashing technique from day one, and are trained to follow our very own 8-step handwashing procedure, every time.
We’re continuously reviewing all that we do and taking into consideration all government guidance to ensure that our procedures continue to protect our guests and people.
Knowledge & training
In addition to the comprehensive training in food hygiene, cleaning and infection control that all of our staff receive, our hotel teams will receive specific training in the control and spread prevention of coronavirus.
