Visit us with Complete Confidence

Visiting with Confidence, Guidance, and Good Practice
We continue to review the government guidelines, as well as actively seeking best practice advice from the hospitality industry bodies, such as UK Hospitality, the AA, and PGA.
We are delighted to have been awarded the following accreditations via different new initiatives, created specifically to put your mind at complete ease when visiting us.

AA COVID-19 Confident

The AA has been trusted by the public as a source of hospitality ratings and recommendations for over 112 years. The new COVID Confident assessment scheme has been backed by the hospitality industry, with many high-profile trade bodies supporting the initiative. The AA checks that each business has the necessary measures in place for a safe visit.

We have supplied evidence of the following:

COVID-19 Risk Assessments
New and relevant Safety Procedures

Enhanced Cleaning

We are operating specific cleaning practices, based on the COVID-19 risk assessments.

Sanitising stations are located throughout the resort (including hotel bedrooms).

Regular cleaning of shared surfaces is being conducted throughout the day and night.

All bedrooms and public areas have COVID-19 Air conditioning filters installed.

We use a Corona Ozone Generator in each bedroom before use, which sanitises and purifies the air, killing bacteria during the 30-minute process.
