House of Daniel Thwaites – Hotel Safety Guide
The safety of our guests and team members is our number one priority so we have put in many measures across our properties to ensure our guests can feel confident when visiting and staying in our properties and our team members can feel confident working in them too.
To keep us all safe, we ask guests to wear face coverings in line with Government guidance.
For more information about your visit, you can download our safety guide below.
We're also proud to have been awarded the 'We're Good To Go' certificate from Visit England; the official mark to confirm we have a risk assessment and the correct processes in place to make Langdale Chase safe for our team and customers.
We look forward to seeing you!
Government Changes to VAT in Hospitality
We can confirm that the rate at which you booked your guestroom still stands and we would like to explain the reason for this.
The reduction in VAT is a great initiative which has been introduced to help hospitality businesses during these challenging times as per the guidance released from the Government. The full announcement can be seen here and below is a summary of the key messages:
“The government made an announcement on 8 July 2020 allowing VAT registered businesses to apply a temporary 5% reduced rate of VAT to certain supplies relating to:
- Hotel and holiday accommodation
- Admissions to certain attractions
The temporary reduced rate will apply to supplies that are made between 15 July 2020 and 12 January 2021.
These changes are being brought in as an urgent response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic to support businesses severely affected by forced closures and social distancing measures.”
After sadly being closed for three months and the increased costs we need to absorb in line with government guidance, our business has been severely affected by the pandemic. This initiative is a huge support to our business and the hospitality sector as a whole and it also enables us to bring more of our valued team members back off furlough.
We hope you understand why the rate at which you booked your guestroom still stands. We hugely value your custom and support and we are really looking forward to welcoming you. We would also like to take this opportunity to reassure you that your safety and wellbeing are at the forefront of everything we do to ensure that you have a memorable and enjoyable stay with us.
