Coronavirus (COVID-19) Measures

We have an enhanced Public House & Accommodation cleaning promise. Designed to help our guests, and our teams, stay safe at this important time, it strengthens our existing rigorous regime by introducing additional hygiene and safety measures – from check-in to check-out.

Our new enhanced hygiene promise

The safety and wellbeing of guests & our team has always been very important to us. We always strive to provide a safe, clean and protected environment for everyone. The coronavirus crisis has brought this to the front of our minds even more, and so we have implemented a new rigorous, daily cleaning programme for our facilities.

Our promise to you to give you extra peace of mind so you can book and stay with confidence.

Here’s what we’re doing to keep you and the team safe:

Checking-in and social distancing

Minimising contact and increasing protection on arrival with Perspex screens, keeping social

distancing measures in place and hand sanitiser are available in public areas.

Hygiene and sanitising spray

More frequent cleaning of high-touch areas, door handles and handrails with approved disinfectants to the European standard of EN14476, effective against COVID-19. In the bedroom, we’re paying special attention to cleaning heating controls, TV remotes, door handles and desks.


All our teams have fully trained in how to deal with cleaning and COVID-19. We’re are also carrying out additional checks on rooms.

Bed linen and shower curtains

Laundering all our linen at over 60 degrees, with disinfectant detergent so you can enjoy a safe and great night’s sleep. We’ve also removed all extra pillows.

Protective equipment for our teams

To protect our team we’ve provided them with PPE equipment including gloves, aprons and hand sanitiser. Whilst there is no government guidance on the need to wear face masks in a hotel, all our teams have been provided with face masks, so they can choose whether or not they wish to wear them.
