Historic Sussex Hotels is a privately owned collection of three very distinctive luxury hotels: Bailiffscourt, Ockenden Manor and The Spread Eagle Hotel, set in some of the most beautiful parts of West Sussex.
As we enter 2021, the landscape has changed once again as we move to a full national lockdown. This means that we are obliged, by law, to close our hotels, spas, and restaurants.
Our aim is for our guests to feel confident and comfortable visiting our hotels, spas and restaurants and while we cannot yet confirm how our re-opening will look, as soon as the Government publishes guidelines for the re-opening of hospitality businesses, we will share this information with you.
At every step, we are working hard to familiarise ourselves with these Government guidelines, and with the information, specific to our industry, from UK Hospitality. We recognise that these are ever evolving and regularly review our processes and procedures to ensure we are doing our best to keep you and our teams safe. Please keep an eye on our COVID statement and social media channels for updates.
We ask and expect our teams, guests and members to continue to comply with our efforts and measures to prevent both transmission and onward contamination of the COVID-19 virus, summed up with this simple phrase:
'Be together, safely spaced. Enjoy yourselves and respect others'
It has been heart-warming to see the support our hotels and spas received in 2020. It has been an incredibly difficult year for so many of us and the continued encouragement, and enthusiasm to visit, from our guests has kept us going and will continue to keep us going through this lockdown.
We very much hope you found some festive cheer over Christmas and look forward to seeing you back enjoying our hotels, restaurants and spas as soon as it is safe for us all to do so.
We look forward to raising a glass of Sussex sparkling with you in 2021 and hope it will be before too long.
