We ask that all guests follow all government guidelines while with us, keep your distance, wear a face covering (except when at your table for dining), slop on the sanitiser & mind yourself!, you need to be aware of what that means in your daily life and also for your stay with us particularly in relation to travel, with so much happening & changing If you have any queries we would ask that you contact us

We will review regularly and update as the situation evolves, keeping policies and procedures relating to Covid-19 under constant review and updating accordingly.

HYGIENE POLICIES & ENHANCED CLEANING PROTOCOLS
We ensure the highest levels of hygiene at our property as a general standard at the Amber Springs Hotel, and in our actions against Covid-19 we have re-evaluated our policies and procedures and have increased cleaning measures across the property. We have implemented more in depth and frequent cleaning throughout the property, with hourly sanitisation of all identified common touchpoints across all public areas and will continue this process going forward. We have reviewed our cleaning products to ensure the correct levels of antibacterial disinfectant and continue to maintain a sufficient stock of these products.
All non-essential items have been removed from rooms and public areas have been removed – this reduces the amount of surface areas which can potentially harbour germs.
We have appointed a designated team to ensure that these hygiene measures are consistently maintained and have created detailed cleaning schedules and checklists to ensure that all team members maintain these cleaning policies, procedures and standards.
We are being very flexible on movement of dates for all hotel stays throughout this Covid Pandemic. We are working with you on this and anyone who contacts us in a reasonable amount of time, who wishes to reschedule their booking we can accommodate (subject to availability) and hold their reservation for that new date subject to the best available rate. Please note, if you have booked through a third party agent, ie booking.com you will need to contact them directly.
