The Registration form will capture the required personal data that we must collect for all arriving customers.

When you arrive at our hotel, you will be welcomed by a member of our team at the entrance of our Reception. Prior to entering the reception, we will ask for your name, and we will take your temperature using infra-red thermometers and monitor if you have any visible flu-like symptoms. Wearing a face mask is mandatory before entering the reception. Hand sanitizer is available at the entrance of the reception. Please enter the reception with your luggage and place the luggage in the demarcated “Luggage” storage unit.

During the time spent at the reception, please maintain a distance of between 1 – 2 m with others. Markings on the reception floor will assist with maintaining social distancing rules.

Our reception counter is separated by a glass partition. For health & safety reasons we will attend to only one customer at a time at the reception desk. We will disinfect the reception desk between customers.

Payment of hotel room will be by way of debit or credit card. Our POS will be covered by plastic film that will be disinfected after each use. Payment by cash will also be accepted.
