We are actively monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) updates from the World Health Organization and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), and will continue to update this page based on the best advice of governments, public health authorities, and medical professionals.
Advice to Guests and Employees
If you've become ill in our hotel or feel you may have been in close contact with someone with confirmed Coronavirus (COVID-19):
- Call reception immediately. Our reception team will contact the Local Health Authorities on your behalf. If you call the Local Health Authorities yourself, please advise our reception team immediately.
- Stay in your hotel room.
- Avoid contact with other guests or employees.
The symptoms of Coronavirus (COVID-19) are:

World Health Organization definition of a close contact:
- Any individual who has had greater than 15 minutes face-to-face (<2 metres Distance) with a confirmed case of Coronavirus (COVID-19)
- Household contacts defined as living or sleeping in the same home, individuals in shared accommodation sharing kitchen or bathroom facilities.
- Hand sanitisers have been placed in several central locations throughout our hotels to utilise hand protection for our guests and employees.
- We recommend following the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines to stop the spread of germs by:
- Washing hands with soap and water
- Using hand sanitizers where possible
- Covering a cough or sneeze with your elbow or tissue
On the basis of the information currently available, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) considers that:
“This outbreak is a global issue now and good coordination is vital. There is also something everyone can do: when you are travelling to or living in areas with presumed community transmission - which we have outlined above - follow strict hygiene measures such as regularly washing hands with water and soap or using alcohol-based hand sanitisers. When you come back from such an area, monitor your health status for a period of 14 days after your return. If you experience any respiratory, flu-like symptoms during that period, contact a healthcare specialist. Ideally do so via telephone first and indicate your travel history before you seek medical attention in person and sitting in waiting rooms with other people. If you have any symptoms, please avoid contact with other people until you have consulted a healthcare specialist.”
