Caring for our guests and employees is always our priority. While we have consistently maintained high standards of hygiene in our properties, we have implemented additional measures in response to Covid-19. These measures are in place to mitigate any potential risks and follow the recommended guidelines from health authorities and are under ongoing review.
As Covid-19 continues to impact the global community, we would like to keep you informed about the procedures and protocols we have introduced at PREMIER SUITES. Based on guidance from local authorities and The World Health Organisation, we have taken specific steps to ensure the safety and welfare of our guests, employees and suppliers. Please read on to see what we are doing and how our serviced apartments can offer a safe environment for guests.
Sincerest thank you for your co-operation during this challenging time and your support of PREMIER SUITES.
If you have any further questions, please get in touch,

We are still providing a service across Ireland, the UK and Continental Europe for our long-term residents. To them, our apartments are their home. In line with advice from health authorities and government, our properties are also accepting bookings from essential workers. If you are an essential worker and need further information on our suites, please contact our properties.
We continue to accept new reservations, only for essential workers and displaced travellers. If an individual is unable to confirm their stay falls inside these criteria, then we reserve the right to refuse check-in. Properties are offering preferential rates to all essential workers during this time.
We have temporarily closed PREMIER SUITES PLUS Bristol Cabot. However, her sister property, PREMIER SUITES Bristol Redcliffe, remains open.
Our properties are currently home to displaced travellers, long stay guests and essential workers. We endeavour to remain open for our residents and essential workers. We will review regularly and update as the situation evolves, keeping policies and procedures relating to Covid-19 under ongoing review to respond responsibly to any changes to government guidelines.
We are no longer accepting leisure bookings or non-essential worker bookings. We are only accepting bookings from essential workers or displaced travellers.
If you have a reservation and you are not able to travel, please contact us to reschedule or cancel your booking now.
If you have an existing reservation and need assistance in rescheduling or cancelling your reservation, please send us an e-mail or telephone with your request and we will contact you as soon as possible. Our property contact details can be found here.
We recommend that guests who have booked through an online platform, travel agencies or other third-party providers contact their booking provider for further assistance.
We take standards for hygiene and cleanliness very seriously and are proactively implementing additional hygiene procedures and precautions to ensure that the highest possible standards are upheld throughout every area and service our properties provide, for both guests as well as our own team.
While the situation is still evolving rapidly, we know it is important to be prepared to deal with any escalation in the spread of the virus and have the following actions in place:
Sufficient supply of hand sanitisers, gloves, masks, paper towels and disinfectant materials in all properties
Comprehensive employee communications policy to ensure reliable, up-to-date information is communicated to employees and to clarify procedures and policies around mitigating the risks associated with Covid-19
Posters in public bathrooms to inform of good hand hygiene, respiratory hygiene and cough etiquette
Additional tissues available in public areas
Additional cleaning of public areas and frequently touched surfaces (door handles / reception desk / elevator buttons) – using products which are effective in killing the virus
Property linen washed on a higher temperature
We have provided sanitiser stations throughout the buildings
We have identified all common touch points and have implemented a thorough sanitisation of these points
Extra public area staff have been rostered to ensure regular sanitising of commonly touched surfaces
Our internal communications platforms are ensuring efficient flow of protocols and updates

We have implemented full procedures for sanitising guestrooms including all touch points e.g. remote controls, handles, light switches
We are committed to providing the additional manpower required to implement best practice procedures
We have introduced a ‘no-touch’ housekeeping service, where guests can request cleaning products and linen to be left at their door
We are committed to playing our part in trying to prevent Covid-19 from escalating. We ask that our customers do the same and follow the HSE & WHO guidelines regarding personal hygiene and Covid-19.
Each team member has been fully briefed on how to approach guests that may be unwell or are self-isolating, and we remain in close daily contact with each team member to ensure they remain in good health. If employees or an immediate family member does not feel well, the order is to stay at home and clarify any medical condition before returning to work.
Should a guest present with any symptoms of or feel unwell during their stay, we kindly ask them to stay in their room and contact local health authorities. Please update the Front Desk team of your situation.
For Ireland, call the HSE on 1850 24 1850
For the UK, use the NHS online 111 service or call 111
For Belgium / Netherlands, please telephone the Front Desk, who will provide you with local doctor telephone details
If a guest becomes unwell, we will liaise with them to get a list of their requirements e.g. groceries, medical needs, extra linen, etc. All items requested by the guests (throughout self-isolation) will be left outside the door for the guest to take, whilst wearing a mask. As our apartments are self-catering the guest should be comfortable during this time in the apartment.
Each of our properties has a full list of protocols to follow should a colleague or guest become ill.
Wash hands properly and regularly:
Before and after eating or drinking
After going to the toilet, nose blowing, sneezing or coughing
After cleaning procedures, handling waste and waste bins
After handling contaminated (dirty) items
Whenever hands become visibly dirty
If in contact with a sick person, especially those with respiratory symptoms
Cover mouth when coughing and sneezing:
Cover nose and mouth with disposable tissues – if you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your arm or sleeve (not hand)
Place used tissues into a sealed bin – wash your hands
Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
