Keep you Covid-19 Safe
The wellbeing of our guests and staff remain the foremost priority for the Western Isles Hotel. We wish to share with you our COVID-19 plan which we kindly ask you to follow.
Contactless temperature checks will be carried out on everyone entering the building and the Conservatory Restaurant & Bar, both at breakfast and dinner. No data is kept on file.
We shall e-mail you two days before you are due, to ask you to complete the check-in process in advance. All you will need to do in Reception is pick-up your key.
In reception, your room key will have been UV light sanitised before you collect it.
A UV sanitising lightbox is available for you to sanitise passport, cards, phone and any small items you wish to decontaminate. The process takes three minutes and kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses
We accept: Visa, MasterCard, Amex, and JCB.
We shall not be able to take cash payments, and can only accept payments by credit or debit card, BACS or FP (faster payment). Contactless payments are also accepted.
COMMUNICATION WITH US DURING YOUR STAY
You can call us using your in-room phone by dialling “0”, or 01688-302012 from your mobile.
The reception desk is covered from 7.00am until 9.30pm every day. Outside those hours, situated on the main reception desk, there is displayed an emergency mobile number for you to call, or please dial, (9)999 from your room.
GUEST ROOM SANITISATION PROCEDURES
In addition to our normal cleaning programme, our housekeeping team will be following a rigorous anti-bacterial point of contact surface wipe in all rooms prior to arrival.
We shall be sanitising all door and furniture handles as well as TV remote controls and any other loose items such as pens etc. with a UV wand, which eliminates 99.9% of bacteria and viruses.
As a final step, we shall carry out "fogging" sanitisation in all rooms, including bathrooms, prior to your arrival. Once complete, guest rooms will not be re-entered prior to your arrival (Fogging is a process through which we can make sure that rooms are free from bacteria, fungi and viruses: the process kills 99.9999% of them).
The technique is widely employed in hospitals throughout the world. The machine we shall be using is the STERiZAR Fog Machine Heavy Duty Dry / Wet Droplet 240v which sanitises whole rooms quickly and effectively. We shall be using STERiZAR Fogging Solution. Once the treatment is complete, the space is free of any pathogens.
During your stay, rooms will not be serviced, and staff will not enter your room during your stay unless you specifically request a service. For normal housekeeping services please request either on arrival or previous day for next day service. You may request items such as towels, soap, shampoo which will be left outside your door for you.
Housekeepers will wear masks, sanitised gloves and will have been temperature and oximeter checked each day.
