Staying in our hotels during the pandemic

Book With Confidence

As we find ourselves once again under new guidelines and restrictions, you can be reassured that when our venues are permitted to open, they all have COVID measures in place to make your stay as relaxing and as inviting as possible.

All the hotels and restaurants in the Vantage collection are committed to keeping our guests safe and are COVID compliant. They have accreditations like the AA COVID Confident certificate or COVID-19 Safety Charter (Irl).

This means as well as enhanced cleaning protocols, you can expect some changes to guest services such as online check in and check out, face masks to be worn when moving around the premises and no buffets – all meals served to the table.

Outdoor space

Many hotels are country houses or based in the countryside with lots of space to keep you safe. We pride ourselves in the fact that venues are near areas of outstanding natural beauty, so it’s easy to enjoy the outdoors, such as national parks and National Trust properties.

Discover our hotels and restaurants and join Vantage for exclusive member offers, upgrades and discounts.

New guest experiences

Different COVID restrictions around the UK and Ireland mean that our venues have come up with new ways to bring their experiences to you. Here’s a selection and please support them if you are near by:

Ferryhill House Hotel, Aberdeen – if you can’t dine at the hotel enjoy your favourites at home with their new call & collect takeaway service.

Rufflets St Andrews - New outdoor dining area with comfy seats, cosy blankets and top-notch heating. Non-resident gazebo tables available to book during the day.

Kingsley Hotel, Cork – Their Bean & River café is open during the day for freshly brewed coffee and a tempting selection of homemade sweet treats al fresco.

Plan things to look forward to

With hotels either closed or operating under local restrictions, take November to plan things to look forward to. You can still book a future experience at a Vantage hotel or restaurant online, with many operators offering flexible booking arrangements for when plans change.

You might be lucky with a last minute escape before the year is out, subject to local restrictions. Remember to book with our hotels directly for the best rate and check your Vantage loyalty account to see if you can redeem points for a little treat.
