Four-star hotel opened up to keyworkers

The Morley Hayes Hotel

Derbyshire hotel, leisure and golf complex, Morley Hayes, has opened the doors of its four-star hotel to key workers who need a place to stay during the current coronavirus pandemic.

The complex on Main Road in Morley, recently launched a takeaway and delivery service in order to provide its local communities and at-risk individuals with hot and cold meals and other essentials.

Now, owners Andrew and Robert Allsop have followed this up by opening-up their luxury hotel to key workers looking for a place to stay closer to work or somewhere to rest and relax, or people whose company needs them to self-isolate.

Guests can enjoy luxury rooms with tea and coffee making stations, complimentary mineral water, along with laundry facilities and free parking. Room service evening meals and breakfasts, which meet safe-distancing guidelines, can also be ordered.

To ensure the health and safety of guests and staff, Morley Hayes has introduced contactless check-ins with a shield between staff and guests, hand sanitising stations across the complex and strict distancing guidelines.

Andrew Allsop, managing director of Morley Hayes said: “Our hotel is open to all the incredible key workers who are helping to keep our communities running during this uncertain time and we hope to give them a safe space where they can relax and unwind in at the end of a hard day’s work.

“The health and safety of our staff and guests is our number one priority, which is why we’ve introduced stringent distancing guidelines and have put a number of other measures in place that will be strictly enforced to ensure the best possible experience for our guests.

“This includes the installation of purpose-made perspex screens, which create a solid barrier between reception staff and guests. All meals are served in our guests’ rooms and meet our strict self-distancing guidelines.”
