Sanctuary for those in need

Over the coming weeks our locations across the UK and Europe will remain open and continue to provide sanctuaries for business travellers and our long-term residents.

We are also accepting new bookings for those looking to stay with us for work purposes, and those in need of accommodation during this period.

We will be in touch with all guests that have a booking with us ahead of their stay, asking them to self-certify that they are travelling for one of these reasons. If you do not fit into one of these categories there will be details of how you can reschedule your booking.

Take a look at our FAQ below, and if you have any further questions, please get in touch.

Stay safe until then,

The edyn Team


 

FAQs

Why are your properties still open?

Our business model is rooted in long-stay, so each of our apartments has been designed for guests to live in. To that end, a number of guests are staying with us for extended periods of time. We are their home. 

As per UK Government guidelines, we also remain open to those staying with us for work purposes and displaced or stranded travellers. We are requesting all new guests to self-certify that they are able to reside with us as per UK Government guidelines.

If you fall into any of these categories, contact reservations@edyngroup.com  for more information. 

 

Do you  plan to close any properties?

Along with our teams on the ground, we are committed to providing a home to our residents and will endeavour to remain open for them. We continue to monitor the ever-changing situation, and will respond accordingly to ensure we are acting responsibly and appropriately to UK Government guidelines.

 

What are you doing to protect guests' health and wellbeing?

We have introduced a ‘no-touch’ housekeeping service, where guests can request cleaning products and linen to be left at their door; rooms are deep cleaned after each stay; a new check-in and check-out process that facilitates social distancing; and have distributed hand sanitiser and hygiene products throughout each of our properties. 

We're working closely with Common Sense Compliance (CSC) to ensure we meet the highest food, health and safety and fire safety standards at all Locke locations. We are also ISAAP 'Stay with Confidence' and Visit Britain 'We're Good to Go' accredited, which means we uphold high levels of safety, security and duty of care.

We ensure we’re in direct communication with all of our residents to ensure their wellbeing at all times, and if a guest is self-isolating we can organise supplies to be dropped at their door.

 

Do I need to wear a face covering?

Face coverings should be worn throughout the common areas of all of our properties including our restaurants, bars and co-working spaces, unless seated and eating or drinking.

 

Do I need to use NHS Track & Trace?

All guests and visitors in our properties are required to provide their contact details, to comply with the NHS track & trace system. 

 

How are you ensuring social distancing?

To ensure the safety of all guests and our staff, guests are requested to practice social distancing during their stay and wear face coverings in our social spaces, unless they are eating or drinking. We have introduced ‘contactless’ check-in and check-out, changed our housekeeping protocol. It is essential we work together to support these efforts at this time, and as such, guests encouraging social gatherings will be asked to leave, fined and reported to the authorities in line with UK Government guidelines.

 

Are your bars and restaurants still open?

We are closely following UK Government guidelines and as such our restaurants and bars may be operating a slightly different service than usual, with some closing from 5th November 2020.

For the most up to date information on opening times, contact the venue directly. If you'd prefer to cook in your room, grocery delivery and fresh produce is available to guests (or we can suggest a great takeaway).

 

Are your gyms open?

From 5th November 2020 our gyms will be closed to guests until further notice.

 

Can I use your co-working spaces?

Our co-working spaces will remain open for Locke guests and residents only. Face coverings must be worn unless seated to eat or drink and social distancing must always be observed. Guests and residents are also required to provide contact details in line with NHS Test & Trace. If you prefer more privacy and the comfort of your own space, our apartments are also well equipped for working.

 

What measures are in place to protect your staff who are still coming in to work?

We are immensely grateful to each and every one of our team on the ground who are working very hard at this time to keep our guests safe and reassured. 

We have introduced a ‘no-touch’ housekeeping service, where guests can request cleaning products and linen to be left at their door; a new check-in and check-out process that facilitates social distancing; and have distributed hand sanitiser and hygiene products throughout each of our properties. 

Each team member has been fully briefed on how to approach guests that may be unwell or are self-isolating, and we remain in close daily contact with each team member to ensure they remain in good health.

 

I have booked into one of your partner properties - How do I amend my booking?

Each of our Partner locations will be dealing with booking amendments and cancellations differently, and it may be necessary to discuss your booking directly with them. If you have any questions about this process or need a hand, please drop a note to directteam@edyngroup.com.

 

What are you doing to support the local community?

Prior to the re-opening of hotels to the public, we partnered with the UK Government and NHS accommodation providers to house essential workers through the crisis period.  

 

These are unprecedented times and we appreciate your partnership and support during this challenging period for everyone. If you've got any questions feel free to get in touch.  

We hope to see you at an edyn sanctuary soon.
