Warwickshire hotel awarded Covid-safe status
Billesley Manor Hotel and Spa has achieved Covid-secure status having successfully completed a number of assessments confirming it has the necessary measures in place to keep guests safe.
The hotel has received accreditation from the AA, which has presented the hotel with its ‘Covid-19 Confident Award’ and the CSC, which has recognised the hotel as ‘A Safe Place to Work and Visit’.
It has also been awarded TrustYou’s ‘Trusted Cleanliness Award’ and VisitBritain’s ‘We’re Good To Go’, which is designed to help and encourage consumers to explore the country with confidence.
Protocols currently being implemented by the hotel include regular cleaning and staff training, clear signage and a one-way system throughout the hotel, hand sanitising stations, social distancing arrangements in public spaces and the use of face coverings.
The hotel hopes guests will be reassured when visiting the premises, which have reopened following a £5.6m refurbishment.
Stephen Fearnley, general manager, Billesley Manor, said: “With consumer confidence at an all-time low and the hospitality industry still suffering the impact of Covid-19, we know just how important these accreditations are and so we’re delighted to have achieved them.
"We are excited to welcome guests again and for everyone to have the chance to enjoy the results of our refurbishment, but of course they must feel safe to do so. We hope that these awards will let people know that we are open, we are Covid-secure, and that we are taking the situation seriously so that they feel welcome and able to visit.”
