As we re-open our hotel, it is crucial to us that we deliver a safe and comfortable space that you have grown to love at Stirling Court Hotel. We have been working tirelessly over the last few weeks to ensure that this is delivered to you every time you come to visit. This has included gaining our Good to Go certification from Visit Scotland.
Read below to see what we have put in place.

WHILE YOU ARE WITH US
Cleaning and hygiene
We have developed enhanced cleaning procedures to help keep our guests and our team protected. From front of house to behind the scenes, enhanced cleaning measures not only mean that we are cleaning more regularly, but also that we are focusing in on more high contact areas.
Cleaning and disinfection have been increased, ensuring staff are including all frequently touched areas such as counters, switches, door handles, equipment and toilets.
Sanitiser spray is used, which is effective against viruses. At the end of each shift, our team is also deep cleaning all hand touch surfaces one additional time.
A reminder system is now in use for handwashing and cleaning down of surfaces and equipment to indicate the need to clean and disinfect every 30 minutes. This is not instead of, but in addition, to the regular hand washing and cleaning completed as per our existing procedures.
To help stop virus spread our team are all:
Washing their hands and using hand sanitiser on a regular basis.
Completing health questionnaires as they return to work and confirmed every time they come on duty for their rostered hours going forward.
Trained on the wearing of personal protective equipment and COVID-19 safety and sanitisation protocols, and what they do if a guest or team member becomes unwell.
Trained on social distancing guidelines and protocols and what to do when they cannot socially distance.
Bedroom Room Set Up
When you arrive at your room, you will find our ‘staying safely’ seal on your room door.
This seal guarantees that no-one has entered your room since the thorough deep clean carried out by our housekeeping staff. It is our promise to you that we care about your health and keeping you safe while you spend time with us.
All towels are washed at 60 degrees by our contracted specialist laundry service and any additional towels and pillows have been removed from your room. They are however all available on request from Reception.
To minimise the amount of time we spend in your room, your room will only be cleaned on request or at the end of your stay. We are of course, happy to provide clean towels, sheets and toiletries. Once a room has been cleaned, we will place the ‘staying safely’ seal on your door, guaranteeing it is ready to re-use.
Rooms will not be re-used until at least 24 hours after the previous guest has checked out.
All high touch areas will be thoroughly cleaned after each guest checks-out and items such as mugs will be replaced.
Anything else you may need is only a phone call away. Just dial 0 from your room.
Social distancing is marked out on our floors and with signage in all shared spaces, including reception, bar, toilets and dining room.
Perspex screens have been installed at reception to provide physical separation between team members and guests being served where practicable. Team members will wear face masks and distancing measures will be in place for our ‘dine-in’ service.
Limits on the number of guests in the hotel will be calculated and applied.
Our social distancing Host will be available to guests to ask questions and be accountable for the implementation of social distancing, cleaning and handwashing measures.
Sanitation stations are available throughout the hotel and in our guest areas. Use these frequently whilst moving around our facilities especially when entering or leaving our food areas.
Try and use the stairs where possible throughout your stay. Only one person at a time in the lift unless you’re from the same household.
Fire Alarms - as usual, fire safety notices can be found in your room. If you hear the fire alarm and are evacuating, keep your distance from others whenever you can.
Stirling Court Hotel is situated on over 300 acres of beautiful open grounds, so please make full use of this if you wish. A map of trails and walks is available from Reception.
