Checking In

Whilst you can still expect our usual swift and friendly welcome upon arrival, we’re leaving in place the physical barriers at the front desk along with social distancing floor markings and hand sanitising stations. Our hotel team will continue to give extra care and attention to sanitising pens, room keycards and card payment terminals with disinfectant. You may also notice our team more often in high footfall public areas, cleaning and sanitising high touchpoints such as front desk, restrooms, door handles & lift buttons.

Everyone aged 16 and over is encouraged to complete track and trace, either via the QR code and app or by completing this manually.

Lateral Flow (Rapid) Tests

Following Government Guidelines, you are encouraged to take a lateral flow (rapid) test before travelling, and only travel if you have a negative test. You can order these free of charge, via the government website.

Contactless Temperature Checks

As an increased precaution and protection for our staff and our guests, Future Inns will continue to conduct contactless temperature checks upon arrival at our hotels for staff and guests. Upon check in to the hotel, or for non-residents using our restaurants and other services our reception team will carry out contactless temperature checks. Should any guest fail a temperature check they will be offered a second check after 15 minutes. In the event of a failed second temperature check, guests will unfortunately not be permitted to dine in the restaurant or stay at the hotel and their reservation will be cancelled free of charge.

During your stay

  • We ask that face coverings continue to be worn in all public areas and hotel corridors. 
  • Upon check-in, you will be asked to complete a COVID-19 self-disclosure.
  • Where possible we kindly ask guests to use the w/c in their hotel rooms rather than public restrooms in the hotel.
  • We are operating a reduction in occupancy of our elevators for our guest safety.
  • Whilst staying at the hotel, you will have the option to have your bedroom serviced daily. However, if you prefer us not to enter your room, we can provide clean towels and replenish your drinks tray or other items by leaving them outside your door. Please let us know your preference when you check-in. 
  • All non-essential items have been removed from guest bedrooms such as slippers, bathrobes, bed runners, cushions and literature to help us protect our guests and staff.
  • As an extra precaution, we will continue to keep rooms empty between stays as long as possible.
  • Please heed safety notices and floor markings around the hotel.

Face coverings and face masks

We ask that all guests wear a face-covering in all public areas of the hotel and restaurant. Face coverings can be removed when you are sat at a table in the restaurant. 

Breakfast and restaurant dining

The following measures in place until further notice:

  • You must make a booking. This allows us to continue to maintain safe distances between customers and to keep track of the number of people on the premises at any one time.
  • Our popular hearty breakfast buffets are back so you can enjoy filling up on your favourites, we politely ask that visits to the buffet station are made without queuing.
  • The lunch and evening menus are still running, and still have a lot of choices. They are changing all the time, and may not have your favourite dish that may be listed on our website.
  • In order to help reduce the risk of a local outbreak of coronavirus, we are taking contact details for customers, as well as recording times entering and leaving our premises.
  • In line with guidance issued by the Department for Health and Social Care, we will keep your details for 21 days. We will share them with Test and Trace personnel, if asked, in the event of a fellow customer or staff member testing positive for coronavirus. Data will be handled according to GDPR, security and ethical standards at every stage of the process – from its collection and storage by us to its transfer and use by NHS Test and Trace. NHS Test and Trace will handle all data according to the highest ethical and security standards and it will be used only for NHS care, management, evaluation and research. We do not use these details for marketing, or do we pass or sell them on to other 3rd party organisations.

Our Team

Our safeguarding measures include daily health checks of our team. PPE will be provided where regulations deem it necessary. All staff communal areas and back of house areas such as our kitchens will be observing social distancing.

We're Good To Go

 

“We’re Good To Go” is the official UK mark to signal that a tourism and hospitality business has worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and has a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing. A COVID-19 risk assessment and check has been done to make sure the required processes in place. 

The scheme has been developed in partnership with Visit Britain/Visit England, Tourism Northern Ireland, Visit Scotland and Visit Wales to ensure a standard-led approach across the UK with input from more than 40 industry bodies including UK Hospitality, the Association of Leading Visitor Attractions, the British Holiday & Home Parks Association, the British Beer and Pub Association and the National Caravan Council, as well as destination management organisations across the country. The self-assessment includes specific guidelines for sectors including accommodation, visitor attractions, restaurants and pubs, business conference and events venues and tour and coach operators with signposting to further industry and trade association guidance as required.
