The new-look Warner

During lockdown, the team has been working hard behind the scenes, painting, polishing, inventing, training and, above all, perfecting. The result is the Warner everyone knows and loves for a few days of complete relaxation and freedom, but now done even better.

That’s to say there’s world-class dining – but with brand-new restaurants and menus. There’s music and bands, but now making more noise with a new team show, festivals for every taste and a line-up of stellar names. And there’s even more space to relax indoors in refurbished lounges as well as new walks, cycle trails and beautiful grounds and gardens to enjoy. All safe and spotless in the most sought-after locations around the nation.

Cricket St. Thomas Hotel.

All under one roof

No car keys, no taxis. This is the beauty of a rare group of hotels that offers infinitely more than an elegant room for a few nights away. Drinks, eats, cinemas, spas, pools and complimentary activities are all in very exclusive settings, all curated just for adults. How many other sanctuaries also house private theatres that fly the flag for the performing arts and welcome bands, comics, star acts and choreographed shows every single night?

Feeling safe from the first hello

  • A fully trained team constantly adapting and adhering to government and industry COVID-19 standards ensures a relaxing stay
  • Grounds open and rooms and public areas deep cleaned and sanitised by 3pm
  • Driveway check-in and room account set up
  • One-way systems and face coverings in public areas inside
It’s as safe and slick as it possibly can be. Which then leaves plenty to do and plenty of ways to do next to nothing at all. With bars and restaurants, pools bubbling nicely and theatres for showtime, it’s all right here. No need to ever leave the grounds.

Hot on hygiene and top-to-bottom cleaning

Housekeeping teams across the estate wear government-recommended PPE and have received extra training and additional tools to enhance their already vigorous cleaning schedules. Extra-special measures include more frequent cleaning in all public areas with a concentrated anti-viral spray on high touchpoints. Hand sanitisers are readily available and more time dedicated to sanitising on guest changeover days.

Flexible dining and easy social distancing

A few days away without the kids is bliss at a hotel with drinks, menus and shows crafted just for adults. Half-board breaks major on great dining experiences with prebookable times and plated à la carte service to the table. There’s no need to lift a finger. Two showtimes to allow for social distancing are always live with music, song and comedy gold. All in all a great night out, without even going out.

The big spaces that make us different

With tucked-away spots in peaceful parts of England and North Wales, few British hotel groups lay claim to lakes, woods, orchards, sea views and mature parklands that roll on mile after mile. All incredibly private, they’re a joy to stroll, often without a soul in sight. Such generously sized hotels are just as hard to find. With fewer guests and roomy public areas, they make it easy for bubbles to socially distance.

And the little things that make a big difference

There’s no detail overlooked. The best days start in rooms with everything you need but didn’t know you wanted. And they’re spotless, with an amazing team of housekeepers never compromising on hygiene and dedicated time to deep cleaning. Cashless and as ‘touchless’ as possible too, but always with service from the heart, and no losing any of those friendly hellos for which Warner is so famous.

Frequently asked questions

We appreciate things look at little different right now as our team strives to provide holidays that feel as safe as they are enjoyable. Changes and new government regulations are detailed below, plus answers to the most common queries.

All Warner hotels are scheduled to reopen on 17 May 2021. Please keep checking back on our Hotel Status Checker page to see the latest updates.

What if I've paid for extras/add ons as part of my booking, which has now been cancelled?

The health and safety of our guests and teams is of paramount importance so it has been necessary to remove certain packages or experiences – this includes VIP packages, excursions, early check-in and late check-out. We will review this on a month by month basis.

We’re sorry if we’ve had to cancel any element of your break due to the current restrictions. We’ll automatically refund the cost of any packages or extras – there’s no need to call us. We’ll keep this under review on a month-by-month basis.

For guests who have paid in full, refunds will go back to your payment card. For guests who have only paid a deposit, we’ll remove the extras from your booking and reduce your outstanding balance.

Will guests need to wear a face covering at Warner?

Face coverings are mandatory in all indoor settings. To ensure we comply, all guests will be required to wear face coverings inside public areas around the hotels (reception, corridors, staircases), during beauty treatments, and prior to being seated at restaurants, bars and coffee shops.

All Warner team are required to wear face masks in all public areas of the hotels.

When are face coverings not necessary?

Guests do not need to wear a face covering in their rooms and whilst eating and drinking in restaurants, bars and coffee shops and anywhere outdoors. Guests also do not need to wear a face covering if they have a valid reason not to. This includes (but is not limited to) physical or mental illness or disability, wearing a face covering will cause severe distress, and assisting someone who relies on lip reading.

We recommend that guests print the exemption from face covering badge from the government website as a useful way to demonstrate to others that they are exempt. Learn more about guidance on face coverings

How will check-in work?

Around 7 days prior to your stay, you will receive an email or letter detailing everything you need to know. You will be asked to book your breakfast and evening dining times via our new online portal, My Warner Stay.

All guests can arrive from 3pm onwards. You’ll be greeted on the driveway and checked in from the safety of your car. One of our team will give you a room key, confirmation of your dining times, entertainment guide and any other relevant messages all together. We’ll then direct you to the best car park for your room.

There is no need to visit reception when you first arrive – your room account will be setup for you – so either head straight to your room or enjoy a drink in the coffee shop.

How do I pay for things during my stay?

To keep guests and team safe, we’ll no longer be accepting cash so please bring your credit or debit card to settle your room account. We will setup a room account for you, so you can begin making purchases the minute you arrive. You can visit reception anytime during your stay to pre-authorise your card to ensure a speedy check-out on departure day.

What time do I have to be out of my room on departure day?

We ask that all guests are out of their rooms by 10am and on your way home by midday. This is to ensure our team has enough time to deep clean and sanitise before new guests arrive from 3pm. Room account bills will be provided and if you have pre-authorised your card for speedy check-out, we will automatically charge the bill to your card.

Can the porters still take my bags?

At this time, we ask that you carry your own luggage to your room. If you’re unable to manage, one of our team will be happy to assist.

How safe will my room be? What additional housekeeping measures will be in place?

We pride ourselves on excellent housekeeping standards. In addition to our already vigorous cleaning schedule we’ll be supplementing room cleaning with an anti-viral spray on all touchpoints daily. We’ll also be removing any non-essential items from rooms (throw pillows, bed runners, all unnecessary paperwork etc). We’ll also make sure that you have a fully stocked tea tray each day with product that has not come into contact with any other guest. For further information on cleaning protocols, please click here.

I’d prefer not to have my room cleaned each day, what should I do?

We totally understand if you prefer the Housekeeping team not to service your room each day. If this is the case, simply place a Do Not Service card outside your door.

How will you ensure leisure activities are delivered safely?

Some like archery and rifle shooting will need to be booked but many others like boules and pitch ’n’ putt will be come and go as you please. Our teams will host quizzes and gameshows.

All equipment will be sanitised before use and participants asked to wash or sanitise their hands before each session. Equipment will not be shared and will be thoroughly cleaned between sessions. Guests will also be asked to follow social distancing rules when waiting and participating in activities. A member of the team will be on hand to offer guidance.

What times will the restaurants be open?

To ensure we comply with social distancing advice our restaurants will be open for longer periods with breakfast and dinner times booked via our new online portal, My Warner Stay. Dining times will be staggered into 15-minute intervals to reduce the number of guests arriving at the same time, avoiding unnecessary queues, and ensure we offer the best possible relaxed experience.

How do I book my breakfast and dinner slots?

Prior to your stay, you will receive an email or letter detailing everything you need to know. You will be asked to book your breakfast and dinner times via our new online portal, My Warner Stay. Please do not call us in advance as we’ll be unable to make reservations on your behalf. If you don’t book, our team at the hotel will allocate dining times for you.

Will I be sat in the same place each day?

Each time you arrive at the restaurant we’ll allocate you an available table so you may not always be seated at the same table each day. We are unable to reserve specific tables for guests.

What are the times of the ‘early’ and ‘later’ shows?

To achieve social distancing, we’re reducing numbers in the indoor cabaret rooms and where needed will be putting on two nightly performances, an early and later one. We’ll automatically reserve your show time to follow dinner.

Show times are 7:30pm-9pm and then 9pm-10:30pm.

These are subject to minor variances, to be advised at your hotel.

Welsh government guidance differs so we’re awaiting details for Bodelwyddan Castle in North Wales.

Can I stay for both shows?

To achieve social distancing, we’re reducing numbers in the indoor cabaret rooms. If we’re unable to safely accommodate all guests for one performance, the headliners will perform the same show twice. Guests will be booked in for just one of the two evening performances.

What happens in the hotels with a cabaret restaurant where the entertainment and dining is in the same place?

At our four hotels with cabaret restaurants, Alvaston Hall, Studley Castle, Corton Coastal Village and Lakeside Coastal Village, these will have a single performance. These hotels will continue to host one sitting for breakfast and dinner and one show every night.

There’ll be fewer guests than normal in the hotels, which will allow us to space out seating and put social distancing measures in place. Guests will still be asked to book their breakfast and dinner times in advance. We’ll be in contact before your break with instructions on how to do this.

How does my Drinks Inclusive break work?

If you have booked a Drinks Inclusive break please note that it will now operate from 4pm to 10pm which is a change from the published 6pm – midnight.

Will the hotel shops be open?

Due to the small size, gift shops will be closed to reduce the number of personal contact points. However, guests will still be able to pick up everyday essentials from Reception and we’ll look to operate some pop-up shops for those holiday treats. These will be advertised around the hotels.

I use a scooter or wheelchair so will need an accessible seat in the Late Lounge, will this be available to me?

We welcome guests who are Blue Badge holders to bring their mobility scooter or wheelchair to use during their stay. Please speak to a member of the team in the show venue and they’ll locate a suitable space for you. All our venues remain accessible. For information on our Blue Badge policy, please click here.

Will there be bingo, gaming machines and vending?

To avoid unnecessary contact, we’ll no longer be accepting cash at our properties and all purchases will be billed to your room account. Because of this, it won’t be possible to offer prize bingo, gaming machines and vending. We’re looking at how best we can introduce them in a cashless and safe way and will publish details here when finalised. Quizzes and gameshows hosted by our entertainment teams will certainly go ahead, though, as part of a full line-up of entertainment.
