Covid-19 update and charter

Following the Welsh First Minister recent announcement, it looks hopeful that we will be able to open soon though we still wait on an exact date. 12 August is the one we have planned. Susan and I will then hopefully be able to welcome you back to Tyddyn Llan.

Of course there will be changes.

As well as our Dinner B&B rates, our rooms are now offered on an accommodation-only basis, priced to encourage you to stay longer with us. Note, if want to stay more than one night, then please do not use online booking, but phone us, 01490 440264.

You’ll have the choice of a light breakfast served in your room (£14 per guest) or the full works served in the dining room (£25 per guest).

The whole ethos and culture at Tyddyn Llan are based on wrap-around hospitality. So we’ve had to retrain our teams on how to take extra special care from a distance and how to be ‘stand-offish’ with a smile.

We’ve re-thought the whole guest journey and yes, we’ve had to embrace some dreaded technology to reduce touch points. We’ve had to add a few too many signs, rules, and notices for our liking, and lots of behind-the-scenes cleaning regimes. But we’ve kept a sense of fun through it all, keeping it real and holding on to the essential feel that is Tyddyn Llan.

Don’t expect full PPE in the hotel. However, we’re confident you will find a sensible, user-ready, scrupulously clean approach that will keep everyone safe, happy and relaxed.

Hospitality is ultimately about the warmth of human connection and interaction.  But things are going to look a little different and become the new normal for a while.  Although we may appear ‘cool’ with the social distancing measures in place, our welcome is as ‘warm’ as ever!

We want to reassure our guests, team members and suppliers that we have taken every measure possible to keep everyone safe, but also want to ensure we don’t lose the essence of what we love to do every day.

Our team will be happy to answer any questions but below we offer some useful information…

What if the situation changes again or I need to cancel my stay at short notice?

We recognise that it’s very hard for anyone to make firm commitments for anything at the moment but we will give you our commitment to be understanding in all scenarios connected to Covid-19.

What new cleaning routines has the Hotel introduced since Covid-19?

We’ve always had a rigorous cleaning and hygiene routine. However, our fabulous housekeeping team are stepping it up a notch and you’ll see continuous cleaning around ‘touch points’- door knobs, handles, in the loos. etc. in the main areas of the hotel.

We’ve implemented a ‘deep cleaning’ process for bedrooms using the recommended hospital-grade cleaning materials.  Once a room is fully ‘guest ready’ it will have a cleaning seal of approval attached to the door giving reassurance of its squeaky cleanliness.

We’ve all become more familiar with regular hand washing etc. Our teams both front and back of house are all adhering to this, before, during and after their shifts. And to complement this we’ll have hand sanitiser available around the hotel for both team and guests to use.

How will you ensure social distancing in the restaurants and around the hotel?

The guest experience will look a little different but we hope we’ve made it simple and easy to follow. 

Firstly, we politely ask you to use one of the hand sanitisers at the entrance to the hotel prior to entering or indeed touching a door handle. We’ve limited our guest capacities and restaurant spaces and introduced one-way flows to the first floor and where possible around the hotel to ensure a more relaxed approach to social distancing.

We don’t want to appear stand-offish… but we will back away and maintain the 2m social distancing rule… even though we may wish to give you a welcome hug when you arrive!  

We’ll drop you an email prior to arrival to get as much information on how you would like to relax during your stay with us to limit face to face interaction. We’ll ask all those things regarding the time you’re likely to arrive, confirm your table reservation time, allergies, etc. So many questions but it means we’ll be all ready for you.

  • Check in – we’ll maintain social distancing throughout – one of our team will meet you and take you straight to your room. 
  • In room – we won’t make a fuss, just let you settle in – we’re always at the end of the phone if you need anything.
  • Dinner – our dinner service time will start at 6.30pm so that we can stagger all the bookings every 15 minutes, to ensure we can space guests in accordance with social distancing. Residents will need to book, and please be understanding if your preferred time is not available. We will have disposable wine list of our house selection to choose from in the restaurant, but if you fancy something more special we will ask you to look at our comprehensive list on line and pre-order from your room. We will also ask you to pour your own wine and water too but be on hand if you need anything!

As our rooms will be sold as accommodation only (unless as part of a package), we will offer a light breakfast delivered to your room (or in the dining room at an allocated time). A full cooked breakfast will be available in the dining room only. Breakfast service times will be extended to 10.30am to allow for relaxed spacing (and more of a lie-in) with all food pre-chosen in your room before you come down.

We’ve tried to think of everything to keep everyone safe and comfortable. So during your stay we will encourage guests to use their bedroom loo rather than the public facilities. Hope you understand.

How do I know the team looking after me are not ill?

We are nothing without our wonderful team and their well-being is our top priority, therefore, we have implemented necessary health checks prior to looking after guests each day – from kitchen porter, to reception, to back of house teams. 

This includes temperature checks and regular ‘wellbeing’ chats to make sure everyone is happy and healthy to come to work.  No team member with symptoms will be expected to work.  Face masks will also be used where necessary to keep both guests and team members safe and comfortable.  

THE RESTAURANT

sits in rural North Wales, near Chester, Llangollen and Wrexham. We are serious about our cooking, being well-rated in the ‘Good Food Guide’.

OUR ROOMS

offer you the relaxed comforts of a quality hotel, but with an essential family friendliness. We’re not a hotel, but a restaurant-with-rooms… thirteen delightful rooms, looking out over the hills. Bryan cooks your breakfast!

In an atmosphere of comforting refinement… is thoroughbred Welsh produce. … Everything is defined by precision and clarity.

Good Food Guide 2020

Away from the epicurean delights, the ‘sympathetically extended’ Georgian property has ‘tastefully decorated’ guest rooms.
