Clean and Safe Protocols - June 2020
Since 2007 our passion and commitment has always been to deliver the very highest levels of service. The well-being and safety of our guests and staff lies at the centre of everything we do. This remains our key objective and our recent period of closure has allowed us to build all-new initiatives which will allow us to continue providing the very best guest experience. The care and work behind the scenes has only increased as we look forward to welcoming back our guests with a range of new procedures to ensure our safety and hygiene measures exceed the highest standards.
