Covid Guidelines

We are delighted to start welcoming guests back to Murrayshall Country House Hotel and Golf Club.  We have put together this guide to inform you of some changes we have made to our operations, to ensure the safety of our guests and colleagues alike for your upcoming stay. 

You will see additional cleaning taking place across the property. Our skilled cleanliness team have undergone additional training, are using new enhanced techniques to ensure our bedrooms, public areas and back of house operation go beyond the mandated levels of hygiene requirements. We have installed hand sanitiser units throughout the property for guest use and signage to help you navigate safely around.

Our team will be using appropriate PPE which will vary from protective screens, gloves and face masks depending on the area they work in. You can rest assured that we have implemented the very highest standards of cleanliness across the property.

We do ask that you, our guests, join us in this hospitality journey by following the social distancing and hand sanitising protocols we have in place. This guidance is clearly marked throughout the hotel with floor stickers, posters & extra signage. 

There is some other key information about the hotel which I have listed below.

Check In / Check Out *

Prior to arrival you will receive a pre-register email.  This will ask you to fill out where possible or email in the details 24 hours before arrival.  This is to enable check in to be contactless where possible and will help minimise time at the reception area.  Also to ensure we are supporting the NHS test & protect guidelines.  Our check in is from 3pm, Upon arrival you will be asked to check over and sign your registration card. We will then require a card for pre- authorization,  this will be offered  as the option to use for contactless check out on departure as well. Lastly you will be given your welcome letter with details of your stay as well as your fully sanitised room key.

Our check out is by 11am. Please place the key in the designated box at reception before departing. If you opt for the contactless check out option,  the card authorized on file for the booking will be charged (if not already fully pre-paid) as well as any extras charged to your room throughout your stay. A copy of your paid bill will be emailed out.  Where you wish to use an alternative method of payment we can still accept this at reception on check out and provide a paper copy of the bill if required. 

*At this time we cannot accommodate luggage storage or assistance. 


Your bedroom will not be accessed by anyone from the point of being sanitised, until you open the door for the first time. During you stay, we are changing housekeeping services to an "on request" option; this is to limit the amount of time a member of our housekeeping team will be present in your room, after you arrive. If at any time you require additional towels, tea supplies etc. please contact reception and these will be delivered and left outside your door. For stays longer than 3 days a linen change can be arranged with reception.
