The Railway Sleeper Lodge

Coronavirus Safe (COVID- 19) as a self check in and contactless operation, we have not had to make too many changes to our already thorough cleaning process. However, for everyone's safety we have added to our cleaning routine:

  • after every room change all door handles, light switches, TV remote controls are cleaned using antiviral disinfectant effective against Cororonavirus and certified to European standards EN1276 &EN14476

  • increased cleaning of high touch points in public areas

  • where a guest has reported any Covid related symptoms during their stay, their room will remain unoccupied for 48 hours following departure and our contract laundry provider notified so that all affected laundry is separated and treated

  • we ask that all guest provide accurate contact information so that we can assist with any track &trace information required
