Covid-19 Statement

To ensure the highest standards of cleanliness and safety for all our guests, our day-to-day operations have be reviewed and specific measures have been put in place at Moorside Rooms in accordance with UK Government and Industry wide guidelines:

Contactless Check In and Check Out
Leading up to your arrival day I will receive a message you confirming when your room is ready for check in, your Room Number & the Main Door Access Code

Room keys can be collected in the entrance porch & will be cleaned and disinfected after each guest departure

Please use the sanitisers as you enter and leave the building.

Balance payable upon arrival, payment in cash or card is accepted.

Each morning a fresh continental Breakfast To Go will be left outside your door at 8am for you to enjoy either in your room or to take with you.

Cleaning & Disinfectant Routine
As ever, your room will be thoroughly cleaned and now also disinfected against the Covid-19 virus with products that are certified to European standards EN1276 & EN14476.

Windows will be kept open for as long as possible to allow air to pass through

I have completed the ‘We’re Good To Go’ certification scheme launched by VisitScotland and will follow the cleaning and disinfection protocols produced for the hospitality industry. This will include the extra cleaning of high touch points e.g. switches, door handles, surfaces etc.

Appropriate PPE will be worn during the cleaning process and discarded and replaced after each room is cleaned.

Your in room cups etc will be washed at high temperature in a dishwasher

Hand Sanitisers
We ask guests to use the sanitisers at the entrance and throughout the property in addition to regularly washing of hands.

Guest Signage
Increased signage will be displayed to remind guests of the measures and new protocols. We ask guests are respectful to other guests in the communal entrance hall and observe social distancing.

Guests will be given access to our Digital Welcome Guide

Other in room information will be either single use material, such as paper and then disposed of, or laminated and disinfected.

Laundry & Light Housekeeping
All towels and bed linen will be washed at high temperatures

Fresh towels, linen, pillow and mattress protectors will be replaced after guests departure

Fresh single use tea, coffee & milk sachets will be replaced after each guest departure.

Guest rooms won’t be entered during your stay, unless staying for 5 nights or more.

Guests are asked to email or message me if you need any items replenished e.g. towels, coffee, tea etc. These will be left outside your door once you return from your day’s exploring.

Also, each morning if your bin needs emptying, please tie the bag closed and leave outside your bedroom door or you can dispose of it using the bin in the parking area.

Staff & Guest Well-being
I will constantly monitor my health and if I develop any symptoms I will follow the UK NHS Guidelines.

If this means I have to self isolate, I will endeavour to find local support so your booking can continue, however if this is not possible then I will give you as much notice as possible to cancel your booking and give you a full refund.

We ask that if guests have had any of the following symptoms in the 7 days leading up to your stay – a new or continuous cough, a high temperature or a loss of taste or smell they SHOULD NOT travel to Moorside Rooms. Free cancellation will apply up until to 48 hours before your arrival date. After this time you will be charged

Please phone 119 and follow the UK NHS Government advice on self-isolation.

Please also contact me so I can re-arrange your booking.

If you become unwell during your stay and are unable to safely and directly return home, call NHS 111 for further advice. Please also let me know.

If you are unwell and unable to travel home, you will be expected to pay for the additional nights you stay whilst you isolate.

If within 14 days of departure you develop any of the above symptoms again you need to contact me straight away.

I hope you understand why these measures have been put in place and thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during these new times.

Thanks, Sam
