You can't relax unless you are confident that hygiene measures are top notch in these extraordinary times. So the team at Coes Faen Lodge is going much further than the official guidelines, which is kind of our habit anyway.
Social distancing measures will of course apply to guests and staff and all staff and guests are expected to keep a minimum of two meters distance is maintained wherever possible.
This will not take away from our impeccable, 5-star experience as we implement a near-contactless service throughout your stay. This will include, video check-in/check-out, welcome and briefing, cashless transactions, individual buffet table for breakfast service alongside table service, well-stocked minibars with ice and trimmings in each room as well as other imaginative alternatives to our usual offerings. Outside tabes will be provided for consumption of drinks in good weather, allowing you to enjoy our serene surroundings.
Alongside our contactless service, we are taking extra steps when it comes to cleaning and hygiene. This will include surface cleaning after each guest has used a public area, deep cleaning of rooms including the use of a state-of-the-art fogging machine that guarantees infection free rooms, gloves will be used to handle dishes and cutlery once they've been washed, soft furnishings will be steamed clean, reduced room servicing between change-overs to avoid cross-contamination and replenishing of refreshments and toiletries daily via a box left outside each guest room.
Dinner service is suspended at Coes Faen until further notice, guests wishing to dine will be offered a table at our neighbouring partner restaurant, Bwyty Mawddach, located a short drive from the property.
