Our Approach to Coronavirus
Updated 9th August 2021
Introducing Safely Sound
As part of our promise to reassure you of your safety when visiting the Kingsmills Hotel, we have designed our ‘Safely Sound’ programme. This builds on our existing high standards of hygiene and cleanliness. Praised by guests we have had the pleasure of welcoming over the years!
So what does ‘Safely Sound’ mean for you? Below, we have created an overview of our new procedures. So you can sleep Safely Sound in the knowledge that we are there for you.
For more detailed information please view our full Hotel Coronavirus Policy now in place.
To ensure a swift check-in that reduces contact and touch points, check-in will be completed prior to arrival. You will receive an email from our partner, Chico, who will enable an online check-in for you. Please look out for it. You will also receive an email form our team with information relating to your stay and instructions on how to make dining reservations. We are all in this together!
Your room at the Kingsmills will be ready from 4pm. Upon your arrival at the hotel, our concierge, wearing appropriate PPE, will greet you with a warm socially distanced Highland welcome and provide you with your welcome pack. Complete with your hygienic room key and helpful information for the time you are with us. Our concierge will also talk you through our hygiene procedures implemented to protect you, fellow guests and our team.
Our concierge will not handle any baggage unless required to aid in preventing touch points during your arrival. However, if you require assistance, all you need to do is remove your luggage from the boot of your car and we will transport it to your room on our disinfected luggage trolley.
Additionally, to increase safety travelling throughout the hotel, we have removed contact points en route to your room and between our public areas. All public doors will be readily open or open automatically for you.
Sealed Hotel Rooms
You can be assured that every measure has been taken to ensure the cleanliness of your room. Not only have we introduced complete room disinfecting measures, but we have some new gadgets too! Our UV black lights will check your room after cleaning to ensure no areas are missed. With touch point items disinfected using industry-leading cleaning products and procedures. We then spray your room for a maximum effort of hygiene. Finally, your room will be sealed, so you have the comfort of knowing that no-one has entered the room after it has been cleaned.
We have also removed certain gadgets and items, such as alarm clocks, to reduce touchpoints. However these can be requested, should you require them.
To maintain household integrity, we will be offering a “Housekeeping Light” service. This means that no one will enter your room for the duration of your stay. Any additional items can easily be requested from reception by telephone.
A traditional housekeeping service is still be available however for your safety we ask that you are not in the room whilst housekeeping are servicing. If you would prefer this traditional housekeeping service, all you need to do is let us know when you check-in.
Enjoying our Dining Experiences & Public Areas
After a busy day of sight-seeing, exploring Loch Ness and our beautiful beaches and countryside, you can relax comfortably in one of our indoor or outdoor restaurants or public areas. Here you can enjoy a drink or delicious meal and refuel before resuming your Highland adventure.
Using the Leisure Club
As of Monday 9th August, many of the previous restrictions in place in our Leisure Club will no longer be enforced. You won’t be required to pre-book slots to use our facilities and can make the most of these for as long as you want. Our changing rooms will also be available for use and our steam room will be available to enjoy once again. Also, we are delighted to announce the return of our much-loved swim lunches.
To ensure the safety of both our guests and associates, we are keeping some of our protective measures in place. We ask that face masks are worn on entry and when moving around around the Leisure Club. Our team will continue to wear masks and use protective screens at reception and ensure there is maximum ventilation with all doors and windows open. We also encourage you to make full use of the hand sanitiser stations found throughout.
Finally, there will be no need for you to check out at reception as final bills will be emailed to you by our partner Chico Stay at 5am on the morning of your departure. All you need to do is complete the steps on the email and you’re good to go! Should you have any questions, call reception from the phone in your room.
We also respectfully ask that you to call reception when departing your room to allow our housekeeping to have the longest time possible cleaning the room before the next guest we are due to welcome arrives.
Please make your reservation with us knowing that you are in dedicated, caring, responsible and approachable hands. We hope that our “Safely Sound” programme reassures you of our very best efforts to keep you safe and sound. And always with the famous Kingsmills Highland welcome.
