Some of our services have changed
Keeping guests and our team safe is our number one priority. We've made several changes to how we operate to meet our high safety standards.
When we reopen, you will find several changes to signage, staff wearing PPE and hand sanitizers for usage throughout the hotel. We request that guests wear PPE when moving around the hotel and to maintain social distancing with other guests.
On arrival, we ask that in addition to checking in with reception, that you check in using the NHS COVID-19 app too. You will be able to checkout without contact with our staff members using express checkout by the reception areas.
Changes to your room
Within your room, we've removed any loose collateral such as marketing material and items such as newspapers, bathrobes and slippers and complimentary mini-bars.
Changes to restaurants and bars
From the 16th December, our restaurants and bars will have to close to adhere to London's travel restrictions. We'll be able to offer a contact-free room service to guests.
Changes to how you use meeting spaces
Under London's travel restrictions, we are no longer able to offer the use of our meeting spaces. If you had a space booked, please contact us here.
We hope to offer our safe meeting spaces again soon.
Changes to facilities
Some of our facilities are currently closed such as gyms, business centres and executive lounges. Facilities may vary between Amba Hotels and our sister hotels.
We've also increased our rigorous disinfecting and cleaning frequency to help stop the spread of the virus.
We hope to welcome you to Thistle Hotels safely very soon. If you've any questions, please get in touch with us. We'd love to hear from you.
