Before your stay

We will be in contact prior to your stay to confirm all details, restaurant reservations and make all necessary arrangements to ensure your stay is as hassle-free as possible. We are implementing online check in for all our guests, which will mean you can register digitally and limit queues at reception.

In addition, any guests with reservations confirmed 48 hours or earlier before arrival will be given the option of paying their balance in order to speed up the check-in process. This is to help minimise any queues at Reception upon arrival. For guests booking within 48 hours of their arrival, payment will be processed at Reception as normal.

Prior to arrival all guests will be encouraged to look at the menus on our website and a full detailed guest compendium. A great way to plan your forthcoming stay.

On Arrival

Please come to Reception as normal where, should you have taken advantage of the option to pre-pay in full and have already checked in digitally you will be given your room key. You'll then be directed to your allocated bedroom in order to avoid any unnecessary congestion in our Reception area. This is to minimise check-in time and assisting with social distancing guidance.

Hand sanitizer stations are in place at entry points, public areas, reception, restaurants and Spa and we encourage you to use these regularly in addition to regular hand washing.

New signage has been installed to ensure Government required social distancing within the properties.


Our usual porterage services will be unavailable for most guests for the foreseeable future. This is as part of our policy to ensure we limit direct contact between guests and staff as much as possible. We will still offer this service for any guests with mobility issues and staff will be equipped with the correct PPE for both guest and staff safety. If you are visiting us and will require help, please let us know when you make your booking so we can arrange this prior to your arrival.


Guest Bedrooms

In addition to our usual high levels of cleanliness and hygiene we are introducing disinfectant ‘fogging’ machines which will be used to sanitise your room as part of our enhanced cleaning procedures. Your bedroom will then be sealed in order to confirm no staff or guests have entered since this cleaning process.

Guest bedrooms will only be serviced on departure to maintain your safety and that of our housekeeping team(upon request, we are also happy to leave fresh supplies of linen and in-room consumables in sealed bags outside bedroom doors and collect any used linen so as to minimise the time spent in guest rooms).


Contactless payment policy

All restaurants, bar and associated points of sale will utilise contactless payment methods. To assist in this policy, you are encouraged to open a room credit account once at the property or, alternatively, make use of card or phone app contactless payments wherever possible.


Bars & Restaurants

All seating areas across bars and restaurants have been configured to ensure safe distancing is maintained in line with current government guidance. Tables, chairs and other surfaces will be sanitised after use. We will be asking you to book a time for Breakfast as well as Dinner so we can regulate numbers in our restaurants and ensure we can adhere to government social distancing guidelines. We ask that you do not approach the bar, we will ask you to take a seat and table and will serve your drinks. The Breakfast buffet will not be accessible to guests, a team member will take your order and serve the items at your table.

To assist with social distancing, we request all residents only use their bedroom toilet facilities wherever possible. All public facilities will be available for non-resident guests and will be subject to current social distancing guidelines and regular cleaning.
