Checking In

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.

Contactless Temperature Checks

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.

During your stay

  • We politely request guests to ensure they wear face masks in 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.
  • Occupied rooms at the hotel will not receive a full service. Housekeeping will be provided with an ‘On Request’ system. If you would like clean towels, your hot drink tray replenished, or any other item for your room, please let reception know and we will then leave the requested items outside your room door.
  • 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 during these unprecedented times.
  • As an extra precaution, we are committed to keeping rooms empty between stays as long as possible.

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.
