Bedrooms / Housekeeping

  • All bedrooms will be meticulously cleaned and fully disinfected between guests. Extra attention will be paid to high touch areas such as TV remote controls, light switches, kettles, hair dryers, wardrobe doors and any other buttons or handles.
  • Our housekeeping team won’t enter your room at all during your stay. We’ll be happy to provide clean towels, linen, toiletries etc to your door as you wish.
  • We have removed any non-essential items from the bedrooms e.g. decorative cushions, throws, magazines etc.
  • We’d request that when possible, guests should use their bedroom toilet rather than toilets in the public areas of the hotel
  • In order to practise good hand hygiene, we’d ask all guests to wash their hands when returning to their bedrooms.

  • All tables and chairs in restaurants, bars and communal areas are laid out 2 metres apart as per government guidelines, to allow us greater protection for both our guests and our staff
  • We operate a table reservation system in all of our areas for greater protection and to allow us to clean and sanitise these key areas while maintaining social distancing at all times. Please reserve your table to avoid disappointment.
