You’re Safe With Us

You may be wondering if it’s safe to stay with us? The short answer is, Yes.
Our hotels have been converted to sanitized Sanctuaries to meet strict health and hygiene protocols. Additional training has been implemented for all staff (front office and back office) to ensure we are keeping everyone informed of the latest developments. We will continue to closely monitor the situation alongside the National Institute of Communicable Diseases and the World Health Organization.

Stay With Us

We have official government approval from the National Department of Health to operate during the Lockdown period. (Letter of approval available on request)
With the necessary protocols in place, our staff are ready to welcome you for your stay at all our hotels.

Best Prevention Practices for Employees and Guests

You can reduce your chances of becoming infected by following these tips:

  • Wash your hands every hour with detergent soap and sanitizer provided by the hotel.
  • Avoid physical contact as much as possible with each other guests/members of the public. This is for your and their benefit.
  • Don’t share food or utensils.
  • Additional hand sanitizers have been placed throughout the hotels in reception, dining, conference, kitchen, offices and back of house areas.

We have also implemented additional measures:

  • Daily (and/or) deep cleaning of all back of house and kitchen areas to continue, along with public toilets and other areas to be done hourly. Restaurant Areas – surfaces to be de-sanitized following every serving period and deep clean during graveyard shift.
  • Conference Areas: deep clean prior and post to any event, ensuring surface areas / tables / equipment get specific focus.
  • Sanitize surfaces areas such as phones / remotes / alarm clocks etc. Housekeeping Management are doing daily room checks to ensure our processes are being adhered to.
    We also have a procedure in place that our staff will follow should a guest or staff member report a suspected case of COVID-19. Contact NICD Helpline: 0800 029 999.
