Government Covid restrictions have now been fully lifted and we’re all embracing easier, brighter days. But ensuring we continue to protect our guests and teams is still our top priority. This is what it means to us.
Striking the right balance
Health, safety and hygiene are at the heart of what we do and who we are. So for us, ‘living with Covid’ means business as usual: ever more stringent cleaning standards, using technology to minimise paperwork, taking cash out of the equation and making the most of the boundless space both inside and outside the hotel.
We know, however, that Covid still needs specific consideration – so here’s an update on how we’re approaching it, as of 28 February 2022:
We will continue to actively promote and support isolation for anyone who tests positive for Covid. This means that:
For our teams: on presentation of a registered positive test*, we’ll ask the person to isolate for the recommended five-day period. Normal sick pay rules will apply.
For our guests: on presentation of a registered positive test* within five days of arrival, we’ll put the deposit for your direct party (room sharers) on hold or rebook your stay for another date.
If you test positive while you’re here, we’ll put the value of any remaining nights for your direct party (room sharers) on hold for use on a future stay.
Health and hygiene
While the new guidelines do not now require us to specify Covid related elements within our risk assessments, we’ll continue using cleaning products that are proven to combat Covid 19.
We’ll continue providing land&water hand sanitiser in all public areas.
Masks are now optional – for both our teams and guests.
We won’t now ask guests to “check in” using the NHS app.
We’ll keep a stock of Covid tests (subject to supply) for our teams and guests to use on request.
Staying proactive and aware
We await further public health guidance, which will replace the current “working safely guidance”. We have also already shaped plans and processes which can be quickly implemented in the event of a new Covid related escalation, and will continue to monitor the situation closely.
* A ‘registered test’ is one where a third party formally confirms the result. There are plenty of test providers, we have a positive experience of www.c19testing.co.uk/antigentests who charge £25 for 4 lateral flow test kits.
