How can we help you?
Keeping you safe during Covid-19 and in future.
Staying Confident with Lamington
Our apartments serve as a home away from home for a number of guests and clients, that’s why we’ve remained open throughout this challenging period for those that need us, including displaced residents, and the amazing essential key workers.
As globally things move closer to a new normality, we’ve introduced a few key changes to ensure our guests and staff continue to feel safe. These changes have been operating throughout lockdown and will continue for the foreseeable future. Together these procedural changes combine to make our Stay Confident policy.
1. Enhanced public area cleaning
In the public area spaces including our reception and throughout our apartment buildings any frequent contact surfaces are now cleaned and disinfected on a more regular basis. This includes, but is not limited to; door handles, handrails and apartment keys.
2. Hand cleaning provisions
We’re providing hand sanitiser in our reception area for guests and in the back of house spaces for our team, along with encouraging increased frequency of hand cleaning and clear instructions.
3. Elevated room cleaning
In addition to our public spaces, all apartments once departed undergo a 24hr stand down period, and our already high standard departure cleaning processes have been further intensified to limit the potential transfer.
4. Contactless housekeeping
For guests staying longer than seven nights, we’ve removed our during-stay room cleans and have reduced our linen service to upon request only. Fresh linen is dropped off and collected at guests’ doors to avoid unnecessary contact.
5. Contactless check-in and check-out
Upon arrival, there will still be one of our friendly team ready to greet. Guests simply need to check-in and then they’ll receive an arrival pack with sanitised keys and critical stay information. Upon departure, they can simply leave their keys in the apartment.
6. Still, always at hand
Whilst we’ve reduced our staffing levels accordingly, our office still remains open daily from 10am – 4:30pm, with our maintenance team just a call away for any emergencies outside our standard operating times.
7. PPE and advanced training
The safety and well-being of our team is vital, that’s why we’ve provided them with the necessary PPE to conduct their roles safely and taken them through training specific to the Coronavirus. Sneeze guards have also been installed and keys disinfected on return.
8. Card only payments
In order to ensure the safety of our staff, we’ve moved to card only payments. On top of this, with our online payment processes being automated, there’s little need for any additional contact upon arrival.
How are we handling the Covid-19 outbreak?
We’re open and now safer than ever!
It’s been a long time coming, but we’re happy to announce that our doors are finally open again and we’re ready to welcome you back.
Up to now, we’ve remained open only to essential workers and those needing temporary accommodation, but following govt guidance, we’re back open to all with updated safety measures.
If you have any further questions please contact us directly at email@example.com or call our friendly team on +44 208 748 2645.
