Covid-19 Meetings and Events Safety Measures

We’ve introduced a range of enhanced hygiene and safety measures at our hotels to ensure our staff and guests can host a meeting or event with us with peace of mind.

What does a capacity assessment entail?

All of our capacities are based on a 2-metre distance between guests or a 1-metre distance with mitigations, such as face coverings worn by all attendees. We will carry out a full risk assessment before any meeting, event or celebration, and always comply with the maximum capacity as determined by the government.

What food & beverage options are available?

Self-serve coffee machines are available to enjoy with disposable cups and clear floor markings to ensure a 2-metre distance between delegates. Sanitising wipes will also be available next to the coffee machine. All snacks will be pre-wrapped and meals can either be plated or enjoyed as an assisted-serve hot buffet.

What are we doing to look after the safety of our guests?

Hand sanitisation stations on entry and exit points.

Test and trace records secured for every meeting or event.

All hotel team members will be wearing face coverings or shields.

In and out flow set up where possible.

Use of globally recognised chemicals by Ecolab.

Revised team training on social distancing and hygiene standards.

Increased frequency of cleaning in public areas, including touchpoints such as door handles and soap dispensers.

What extra precautions are in place for exhibitions or trade fairs?

The flow of delegates will be managed throughout the day to ensure the maximum capacity is adhered to.

The directional flow will be created with floor markings.

No cloakroom or handouts will be permitted.

What extra precautions are in place for social events?

Only background music is permitted (DJs, live music and dance floors are not).

Guests can order at the bar following the 2-metre social distancing rule. Plexiglass screens are in place for order & pick-up points.

Large group photos are not permitted.

What extra precautions are in place for weddings?

No food or drink will be included as part of the ceremony.

A table service drinks reception will be available.

You can enjoy a plated wedding breakfast meal and assisted serve hot buffet in the evening.

Comfortable friendly hotel

Booked a one night dinner bed and breakfast rate here as a staycation. Check in was amazing, Claire was exceptionally friendly and welcoming, room was spotless and we got a nice upgrade. Dinner in Marco Pierre White was great as part of the offer, Trina the Manager in the restaurant was amazing and so hospitable. She was hilarious, efficient and professional all at the same time. Both her and Claire are exemplary hosts. Parking attached and easy accessed. I will come back to this little hotel!
