Are there any changes to check in/check out?
Our check-in/check out time remains the same however if requested we can accommodate a phone check in where the team will explain the services and collect all relevant guest information prior to arrival on the day so you just have to collect your key when you arrive.

Sanitising stations are available at the main entrance and on the reception desk as well as various locations throughout the hotel.

Each guest will receive a Welcome Letter, which will contain key safety information and an outline of the facilities available, including what Covid-19 protocols are in place.
Elevator signage will advise that only one party from the same household may use the elevator at any one time.

Will the Leisure Club and Gym be open?
Swimming Pool & Gym Facility is Open:
- Monday to Friday we will operate time slots for our guests 6.30 am to 8.00 pm
- Saturday & Sunday we will operate time slots for our guests 8.30 am to 7.00 pm
Guests will be allocated 30minute or 60 minute swim slots and gym slots. These time slots must be pre-booked prior to arrival at the Leisure Club.
This pre-booking procedure will allow us to ensure the safety of our Guests and allow us time to correctly sanitise all of the areas.
In line with Government guidelines and health and safety restrictions, we will be adhering strictly to these time slots and would also like to draw our guests’ attention to the maximum capacity of 5 Guests in any one slot in the pool and 8 Guests in the gym.
Guests can use one facility – either pool or gym- in any booked time slot.
Slots are allocated on a first come, first served basis and therefore early booking is advised to avoid disappointment.

Ive booked to stay but I am no longer able to attend due to illness – what do I do?
