We are delighted to announce that we are reopening our doors to guests from 27th July 2020. As ever we shall offer you a warm welcome, now with a few new pertinent changes to ensure your comfort and safety. We are closely following the government guidance and have put in place a flexible cancellation policy to offer you peace of mind should anything change. Below you will find some of these important changes we are taking. OUR PROMISE TO OUR GUESTS The health and safety of our guests, employees, local community and suppliers has and remains our number one priority. The Royal Hotel will adhere to new hospitality government guidelines, as a minimum set of standards being maintained consistently. As we navigate this new path, we will continue to listen to your feedback, and your needs. We have implemented a wide range of measures to keep everyone safe whilst we fully reopen the hotel.
Peace of Mind
WE WANT TO GIVE YOU PEACE OF MIND If you become ill before arriving or on your way to the hotel, we will allow you to cancel at short notice. If you become ill while you are with us, we will assist you to make further arrangements in accordance with the government guidance. WE WILL TAKE YOUR TEMPERATURE Each guest and each member of staff will have their temperature measured at the hotel entrance before entering the building. Any staff member with a temperature above 37.8C will be asked to return home. Guests and visitors displaying a higher temperature than 37.8C will be asked to wear a face covering immediately and welcomed into the isolation area, which is a room on our ground floor. The temperature will be taken again after 15 minutes to verify the result. Should there be no explanation to the raised temperature, the situation will be handled by the manager on duty in adherence with the current government advice.
We have plenty of space
OUR ROOM IS A SAFE HAVEN In our rooms we will remove soft furnishings such as decorative cushions for the time being. We may have to move your check-in time to 5pm at times in order to complete the cleaning procedures and aerate the rooms but we will make sure you are kept comfortable whilst waiting. OUR RESTAURANT SERVICE It is paramount that we do not compromise on the quality of our food. With regards to breakfast, it will be initially served à la carte but include a broad selection, including the full Scottish. Our buffet will return as soon as it is practical to do so. The menu will also be reduced initially to allow for social distancing measures and we will ask guests to eat in either the Well Plaid Restaurant or MacNab’s Inn.
