We are delighted to confirm the reopening of The Randolph hotel on Wednesday, 15th July 2020. We are looking forward to welcoming our guests back once more and wish to ensure all of our guests that the safety of our team and guests is paramount and remains our number one priority. During lockdown, and whilst the hotel has been closed, we have been working diligently, updating our operational procedures and processes to be in line with the government specific guidance set out for the hospitality industry.
What are we doing to keep you safe?
Arrival and Departure
At our reduced contact check-in we will carefully explain the relevant ways in which we will be taking care of you during your stay so that you will leave for your room, confident in the knowledge that you will be receiving the greatest possible care.
All guest’s will be offered a contact free check-out allowing all bills to be settled remotely and via email to further reduce contact.
Guest & Staff Wellbeing
Temperature checks will be required, daily, for all our colleagues to ensure those showing 37.5 degrees Celsius and above are sent home and given advice on what to do next. Hand sanitiser will be available throughout the hotel including the lobby, concierge, reception and entrance to our restaurants and bars, and suitable PPE will be provided for all our staff.
Cleanliness and Clarity
All public areas will see a significantly increased cleaning schedule, both day and night, with a clear focus on the cleaning of all hard surfaces and frequently used elements such as door handles, lift buttons and card machines.
All bedding, laundry and lined are washed at sufficiently high temperatures to ensure sterilisation.
You will see clear indicators throughout the hotel that will assist you in maintain appropriate social distancing measures.
Eating and Drinking
For now, both our restaurants and bars will be welcoming a smaller number of guests and non-residents in accordance with government guidelines. All areas of our restaurants and bars will also see a significantly increased level of cleaning as elsewhere in the hotel.
We will only be offering table service in our restaurants and bars so as to further reduce contact with other guests & hotel staff.
Paperless menus will be available to view on our website.
All in-room dining will be delivered to the bedroom door but not brought into the room to further limit contact.
Colleague Training and Awareness
Appropriate personal protective equipment will be worn by all colleagues throughout the hotel.
Enhanced health and safety training measures have been put in place for all colleagues, this training includes social distancing awareness, the correct procedure for wearing PPE equipment and case notification procedures.
We are currently offering a 24-hour cancellation policy for all new bookings so that guests can book, secure in the knowledge that, should they need to, they can cancel their booking up 24 hours prior to arrival without penalty.
