Update 25th September 2020: Our Cardiff hotel remains open. We are asking guests to complete a self-certification on arrival to confirm compliance with all current COVID-19 regulations in place for Wales and Cardiff County.
Whilst you can still expect our usual swift and friendly welcome upon arrival, there will be some noticeable changes such as physical barriers at the front desk along with social distancing floor markings. and hand sanitising stations.
Our hotel team will be giving 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.
As an increased precaution and protection for our staff and our guests, from the 21st of September 2020 Future Inns will be conducting contactless temperature checks upon arrival at our hotels. Upon check in to the hotel, or for non-residents using our restaurants our reception team will carry out contactless temperature checks for all guests. 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 stay at the hotel and their reservation will be cancelled free of charge.

Lockdown measures continue to ease in Wales.
In Cardiff, the shops are open, as well as pubs, restaurants and hotels. The city centre has been transformed with one way systems, including on the streets, and designated cycling lanes have been widened.
Those living in Cardiff can now meet up with friends and family indoors, as long as they are part of an extended household. The changes will mean people can have physical contact, exercise, cook and eat together. People cannot swap and change once they have formed a so-called bubble.
Currently, you are able to go for a walk, run or cycle as often as you want, as long as you are not in large groups and are at least 2m apart.
Social distancing or physical distancing should be 2 metres (3 steps away) from others, indoors and outdoors. Washing your hands regularly is still encouraged.
Can I book a holiday in Wales? Yes, you can. If you are looking to book a staycation in Cardiff you can holiday with members of your household or extended household in hotels.
The Rule of Six in Bristol and Plymouth hotel and restaurant means that 6 people can meet from up to 6 different households. It applies both indoors and outdoors and to all ages.

If you live in Wales, you can holiday with people you live with, and members of your extended household. Up to four homes can make an extended household, but you cannot swap and change the people once they have formed a so-called bubble.

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.
