Keeping you informed: COVID-19 latest

March 17, 2020

Dear guests, friends and followers,

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and in light of the Government’s latest steps to contain it, we are now closed to new guests and will only be open to critical workers and permanent residents.

We plan to reopen as soon as it is practical and in accordance with Government advice.

Although the lockdown is disappointing for us – because we love welcoming guests to our hotel and its facilities –  as a company, whose paramount concern is always the health and well-being of our visitors, we completely understand the need for the latest measures taken in the current crisis.

As a business, we are making every sacrifice we can to halt the spread of Covid-19 but the public’s response and the personal precautions they take are likely to be the key to defeating it.

Our thoughts are with everyone around the world affected by this pandemic and we urge everyone to listen to and heed health advice as it develops.

We will provide further updates on the hotel via our website and social media platforms and want to remind everyone that this is only a farewell, not a goodbye.

Any pre-paid, pre-existing bookings will be deferred to a further date and although our reception area is closed, you can still call us on 0191 402 9988.

We look forward to welcoming you again once the crisis passes but in the meantime, please stay safe and look after yourself, and each other.

Ian Gray,

General manager

George Washington Hotel and Spa.
