Prior to arrival customers will be encouraged to download the Swinton App on their smart phones. This will give access to current menus, timings, activities and further information about staying on the Estate. Guests will also be pointed to the website to review services on offer.
Guests will be advised to practice physical distancing by standing at 1 metre away from other groups of people not travelling with them; while standing in lines, using lifts, or moving around the Estate. Restaurant tables, drawing rooms and other physical layouts will be arranged to ensure appropriate distancing.
Employees will be reminded not to touch their faces and to practice physical distancing by standing at least three feet away from guests and other employees whenever possible. Use of face masks will be evident across the Estate where social distancing is not possible.
Hand sanitiser dispensers, hands-free whenever possible, will be placed at key guest and employee entrances and contact areas such as driveways, reception areas, restaurant entrances, meeting and banqueting areas, lift landings, pools, treatment areas and exercise areas. Hand lotion will be provided in guest rooms and throughout the back of house for employees. We ask that all customers use hand sanitiser on entry to a building on each occasion.
There will be health and hygiene reminders throughout the property including the proper way to wear, handle and dispose of masks, along with reminders to wash hands.
The frequency of cleaning and sanitising has been increased in all public spaces with an emphasis on frequent contact surfaces including, but not limited to, reception desk, check elevators and lift buttons, door handles, public toilets, room keys and locks, stair handrails, gym equipment, dining surfaces and seating areas. Residents are requested to use their en-suite bathroom whenever possible rather than the public toilets.
Industry leading cleaning and sanitising protocols are used to clean guest rooms, with particular attention paid to high-touch items including television remote controls, toilet seats and handles, door and furniture handles, taps, nightstands, telephones, light switches, radiator valves, window handles, alarm clocks, luggage racks and flooring.
As always, all bed linen and laundry will be changed between guests and continue to be washed at a high temperature. For guests staying more than 1-night bed linen will only be changed upon request at an agreed upon time (whilst the room is vacant).
The frequency of cleaning and sanitising will also increase in high traffic back of house areas with an emphasis on the employee dining rooms, employee entrances, employee changing rooms, delivery areas, kitchens and staff accommodation.
Any area where guests queue will be clearly marked for appropriate physical distancing. This includes check-in, check-out and spa reception.
Where social distancing cannot be maintained, staff will wear protective face masks or visors. Ordering drinks whilst seated and table service is preferred. Bar stools and sitting at the bar will still not be permitted.
Meeting and banquet set-up arrangements will allow for physical distancing between guests in all meetings and events. This will follow government guidelines based on allowed numbers and social distancing.
There will be a continued high level of housekeeping and social distancing, and in smaller areas such as the hot tub and thermal cabins, we ask you to keep to 'one family bubble' at a time. In public areas (with the exception of the pool, thermal areas and gym) we would still urge guests to continue wearing masks.View Swinton Country Club & Spa's Covid-19 Statement
