The small Landmark operations team worked hard and fast to implement new Covid-secure procedures in order to reopen Landmarks in July after a 15-week closure. These new measures – which include additional cleaning products and PPE equipment for housekeepers – have been designed to ensure the safety of our guests, colleagues and communities, while retaining the charm of a typical Landmark stay. You can read more about the safety measures here.
We’re delighted to report that 96% of bookers who responded to our post-stay survey this summer said our Covid-secure measures were appropriate and offered reassurance.
We’re especially pleased that 96% of people felt that the changes, such as being asked to strip their beds when they leave, didn’t negatively affect their break.
We’re providing more information than normal to bookers before their stay, plus some additional detail in the property. Happily, 84% of respondents have found these communications about the Covid-secure measures, such as the detail on the website, ‘very good’ or ‘excellent’.
