Hygiene

We decided early on to introduce extended routines for cleaning all environments. All surfaces such as wet areas, door handles, furniture, key cards, terminals, etc. are washed with disinfectant several times a day.

We have abided by the directives about not having bar service and we have changed our breakfast routines to avoid congestion. We have reduced our capacity in all restaurants and are careful to maintain a distance of at least one meter between staff and patrons.

We require that you – as our guest – are healthy and symptom free when you visit us. The same goes for every member of our staff. At the slightest symptom we – as well as you – stay home.

We respectfully ask you to take responsibility by:

Waiting to visit us at least two weeks after returning home if you have traveled to a risk area. An updated list of risk areas can be found at the Swedish Public Health Agency.

Please don’t visit us if you have been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with Coronavirus, Covid-19 as well as staying home if you are sick with a general malaise, cough, fever or cold.

Together we can ensure that we maintain a safe environment that we can all continue to enjoy.

General gatherings

A hotel is covered by the congestion rules (see the Public Health Agency’s directive here). It’s up to the Public Health Agency to decide how these rules should apply. As of now, it has been decided that restaurants should help to keep more distance between patrons by not setting tables too close to one another and to not have queues around bars and buffets. All our hotels have adjusted to meet these requirements.

A general gathering is clearly defined by law, and refers to, for example, a demonstration, lecture, gathering for religious practice, a theater, concert or a cinema performance. In order for a meeting to be regarded as public, it must be arranged for the public or that the public has access to it.

Restaurant

In the restaurants, we offer our menus via qr code which you can easily scan with your own phone. According to current directives, we currently allow a maximum of 8 people sitting together and we still have distance between the tables and more airy furniture.

We have allocated breakfast times to avoid congestion. For lunch and dinner, only table service applies (at our Swedish hotels).

Of course, our extended routines for cleaning public spaces also include all areas of our restaurant.

If you as a hotel guest would rather eat in your cozy room, most of our hotels offer room service during the majority of the day. Where room service is not available, it is instead good to, for example, order bar food and take it up to the room.

At present, all our Swedish hotels also offer take away, see more specific information on each website.

Meetings and conferences
The number of allowed participants at private gatherings, such as private parties, in rented premises is increased to a maximum of 50. Of course, other principles apply to being healthy, washing hands and thinking about social distance and extra air.

Spa & Pool areas

In our spa and pool areas, we limit the number of guests by having a variety of hotel packages that allows you all to be in different places in the house at different times.
We urge all our guests to keep a reasonable distance (no one likes to stand close to a stranger in a bathing suit anyway ..?) And we also remind all our guests to shower before and after bathing.
