Covid-19 Hotel Information

DINING POLICY:

For hotel residents, we welcome bookings for indoor dining. 

For non-residents, we will only be taking bookings for outdoor dining until further notice.

We have made the decision to delay indoor dining for non-residents until such time as our staff are fully vaccinated. 

We must also ensure our limited indoor capacity is available for our hotel residents. With spacing at 2m, our seating capacity is halved.  

We apologise for any inconvenience and hope you can appreciate our caution. 

 

LATEST SUMMARY OF HOTEL RESTRICTIONS/LAWS

(per 5th July, 2021 - subject to change in the coming weeks):

 

Thank you for your interest in hampton hotel. 

As you will likely be aware, there are guidelines and laws governing both travel and work practices in place in Ireland. 

It is important that anyone travelling to Ireland is aware of any restrictions in place before booking. 

This may include a mandatory quarantine system.

INDOOR DINING           (For Residents only)

·        We will have 2m between the outer edge of each group.

·        There is no time limit when we have a 2m rule. Otherwise, a 105min limit would have to apply. 

 

OUTDOOR DINING        (starts Monday, 7th June, and we will extend until our staff are fully vaccinated)

·        ANY BOOKING FOR A NON-RESIDENT =  OUTDOORS

·        We will have at least 1m between the outer edge of each group.

·        There is no time limit.

·       Our Policy: We will take up to 6 adults + 4 children per booking outside but only if we have capacity available. The law allows us to take up to 15 [6ad+9ch] but we wouldn’t have this capacity. We cannot subdivide a large group between different tables as the guidelines point out that this will result in inevitable mixing between tables.

 

GENERAL DINING RULES      (for Inside and Outside)

·        MASKS MUST BE WORN WHEN NOT SEATED AT A TABLE.

·        There is no €9 meal rule. People can just have a drink if they wish, without ordering food.

·        Bookings are recommended. OpenTable is enabled to accept bookings.

·        Contact Tracing details of the booker will be taken when they arrive.

·        We can’t have live music or loud music of any kind (it encourages shouting).

·        Single-use menus will be used and Contactless Payment will be encouraged.

·        All F&B premises must be clear of customers by 11.30pm. (Including Terrace area) 

 

TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS

PLEASE NOTE, WE ARE NOT A SELF-ISOLATION OR RESTRICTED MOVEMENT FACILITY.

For the health of our employees, their families, and other guests, we reserve the right to not operate as an isolation / restricted movement / quarantine facility. 

Any guests with bookings that involve travel from a country that is not on the "Green Travel List" will be asked to provide evidence that they have isolated for 14 days prior to the check-in date.

If no evidence can be provided, we will request that the booking be cancelled on health and safety grounds. We also reserve the right to not accept bookings on a walk-in basis where ID or travel documentation cannot be shown or where common courtesy is not shown to front-line staff who are doing their best to implement guidelines and laws that are not of their creation. We ask everyone to please be kind and patience with businesses during this difficult time.      

The “Green List” is formulated based on cases per 100,000 of population in the last 14 days, as well as areas with high incidence of new Covid strains.

  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Cover your face if you cough or sneeze.
  • Avoid touching your face.
  • Keep surfaces clean.
  • Stop shaking hands and hugging.
  • Keep a safe distance: 2m

The guidelines will be applicable as they are on the date of stay, not at the time of booking.
