Sample COVID 19 Hotel Guest Policy and Safety Program Sample
COVID 19 Hotel Policy Sample 1:
INTRODUCING SAFELY SOUND
As part of our promise to reassure you of your safety when visiting the [Your Hotel], we have designed our ‘Safely Sound’ programme. This builds on our existing high standards of hygiene and cleanliness. Praised by guests we have had the pleasure of welcoming over the years!
So what does ‘Safely Sound’ mean for you? Below, we have created an overview of our new procedures. So you can sleep Safely Sound in the knowledge that we are there for you.
To ensure a swift check-in that reduces contact and touchpoints, check-in will be completed prior to arrival. You will receive an email from our hotel who will enable an online check-in for you. Please look out for it. We will also call you the day prior to arrival when any requests you may have such as your dining options and booking time in our Leisure Club can be discussed and arranged by our team prior to your arrival. We are all in this together!
Your room at the [Your Hotel] will be ready from 4pm. Upon your arrival at the hotel, our concierge, wearing appropriate PPE, will greet you with a warm socially distanced Highland welcome and provide you with your welcome pack. Complete with your hygienic room key and helpful information for the time you are with us. Our concierge will also talk you through our hygiene procedures implemented to protect you, fellow guests and our team.
Our concierge will not handle any baggage unless required to aid in preventing touch points during your arrival. However, if you require assistance, all you need to do is remove your luggage from the boot of your car and we will transport it to your room on our disinfected luggage trolley.
Additionally, to increase safety travelling throughout the hotel, we have removed contact points en route to your room and between our public areas. All public doors will be readily open or open automatically for you.
SEALED HOTEL ROOMS
You can be assured that every measure has been taken to ensure the cleanliness of your room. Not only have we introduced complete room disinfecting measures, but we have some new gadgets too! Our UV black lights will check your room after cleaning to ensure no areas are missed. With touch point items disinfected using industry-leading cleaning products and procedures. We then spray your room for a maximum effort of hygiene. Finally, your room will be sealed, so you have the comfort of knowing that no-one has entered the room after it has been cleaned.
We have also removed certain gadgets and items, such as alarm clocks, to reduce touch points. However these can be requested, should you require them.
To maintain household integrity, we will be offering a “Housekeeping Light” service. This means that no one will enter your room for the duration of your stay. Any additional items can easily be requested from reception by telephone.
A traditional housekeeping service is still be available however for your safety we ask that you are not in the room whilst housekeeping are servicing. If you would prefer this traditional housekeeping service, all you need to do is let us know when you check-in.
SOCIALLY DISTANCED DINING & PUBLIC AREAS
After a busy day of sight-seeing and exploring our beautiful beaches and countryside, you can relax comfortably with our socially distanced dining. Here you can enjoy a drink or delicious meal in our new socially spaced dining areas. This includes our heated outdoor bar and eating areas where you can watch the sun set in the evening!
Following the Local Governments update to restrictions, as of [Mention date] at 6pm there are changes to our dining options for both residents and non-residents.
We are unable to serve alcoholic beverages indoors within our restaurants and bar to both residents and non-residents. You can however dine and enjoy a cocktail or other alcoholic beverages within our heated outdoor Garden Restaurant & Bar until the 10pm curfew. Although the area is heated we recommend you BYOB (Bring you own blanket) to make sure you are super cosy!
Non-resident guests can enjoy our indoor dining experiences and non-alcoholic beverages but must vacate our restaurants, bar & lounge by 6pm. Residents can however dine in our restaurants and enjoy non-alcoholic beverages up until the original 10 pm curfew.
After the 10pm curfew, we will still be able to offer room service so you can enjoy a nibble and a nightcap in your bedroom.
USING THE LEISURE CLUB
The [Your Hotel] Leisure club has re-opened to hotel residents and members. Following our Safely Sound requirements and Local Government guidance, all visits must be booked in advance with the following procedures. You will be able to book a session in one of of our areas and occupants at any one time will be limited. Find out more about using our Leisure Club after reopening here.
Finally, there will be no need for you to check out at reception as final bills will be emailed to you by our hotel reception team at 5am on the morning of your departure. All you need to do is complete the steps on the email and you’re good to go! Should you have any questions, call reception from the phone in your room.
We also respectfully ask that you to call reception when departing your room to allow our housekeeping to have the longest time possible cleaning the room before the next guest we are due to welcome arrives.
Please make your reservation with us knowing that you are in dedicated, caring, responsible and approachable hands. To our old friends that we have missed over recent months, we look forward to welcoming you back. To the new friends we have yet to meet, we hope that our “Safely Sound” programme reassures you of our very best efforts to keep you safe and sound. And always with the famous [Your Hotel] Highland welcome.
