STAYING WITH US DURING THE PANDEMIC?

We have partnered with Quality in Tourism (QT) to adopt a new gold standard for anti-Covid-19 at our hotel which we believe makes them one of the safest hotels in the UK.

COVID 19 UPDATE

Many people are asking "is it safe to stay in hotels right now?" and the new kitemark is a response to these concerns for safety and cleanliness. It will see Best Western hotels overlay new standards on top of our already high cleaning requirements and processes. This involves comprehensive risk assessments of every area of the hotel.

From grab and go breakfast options, to new housekeeping rules, from touchless practices to social distancing signage, we’ve got everything covered.

Our 5 main areas of requirements and recommendations are all part of an industry-leading accreditation scheme and are developed to reassure both guests and our hotel teams.
