Staying Covid -19 secure in 2020
A full risk assessment has been carried out and advice set out by Gov.uk and UK Hospitality has been considered and adhered to wherever possible.
At the Hawksmoor we are committed to keeping our customers and staff safe so have made a few small changes to the way we do things and ask that our customers help us comply with these changes the best they can. Most of the work goes on behind the scenes so should have virtually no impact on your stay but if you prefer to chat to us about any of the information set out please feel free to give us a call on 015394 42110.
Reception and check-in
Hugs and handshakes are part of normal life at the Hawksmoor (or used to be) but for now we will have to refrain from this and maintain our distance. Please don’t be offended, it saddens us too. All other check-in procedures will stay the same so we will still be on hand to help and assist in any way we can.
At breakfast we’ve made a few changes to the seating and the buffet but don’t worry, were keeping the same hot menu so Trevor’s legendary ‘Fellwalker’s breakfast’ is waiting for you.
We have enhanced our cleaning operation in public areas and in rooms between departures and arrivals and made many changes to our normal routine including rotation of pillows and duvets. This does mean that unfortunately we will have to reduce our cleaning routine in stay-overs. This will help us stop the possible transmission of infection and enable us to concentrate on the areas that need it most. This does depend on length of stay and guests needs though so will be discussed fully at check in.
Check-out and payments
To help streamline check out and with the guest’s permission we will take the balance payment from the same card used for the deposit the night prior to departure. No problem though if you prefer to pay by cash or a different card just let us know on check in.
To our knowledge all of our local Restaurants and pubs will be open for the foreseeable future, many of them are operating on a limited capacity with regard to menu and numbers so we strongly advise you book prior to arrival as we don’t want you to miss out on your favourite. Please feel free to email us for recommendations or look for recent reviews on Tripadvisor.
Sadly, due to the fact they may need to collect personal information from you we will not be able to make bookings in restaurants on behalf of guests.
