Covid-19

CRAZY, LAZY WEEKEND ON THE RIVER SEVERN

When all the madness is over and life, as we know it, is different, we all need to get out and shake the cobwebs away.  You may feel, like us, that you need to be looking at a different living room wall, a different kitchen or a different view out of the window?  Much as you love your own home – a change is as good as a rest, they say.

Our beautiful apartment on the edge of the River Severn is a great place for you to stay.  Maybe the Food Festival and the Steam Rally are postponed until next year, but Shrewsbury is still a beautiful place to stay.  A safe self-contained service accommodation is going to be everyone’s choice for the foreseeable future, so why not visit Monty’s.   A luxury pad on the edge of the River Severn and Shrewsbury town centre – accommodation for the whole family.  Monty’s is a quiet place to stay with free wifi,  Netflix and Amazon and a full kitchen with all amenities means that you can choose to order takeaway meals or to cook your own.

There is a pretty garden with a gate onto the banks of the River Severn.  Take a stroll along the river or take a walk into the town of Shrewsbury.  There are plenty of places to discover in Shrewsbury as the lockdown eases and more travel is allowed.  Shrewsbury has a wealth of pubs and most of them have pretty outside spaces, so as our lives gradually change, and we get a little more freedom you will be able to call in for a couple of drinks?

Monty’s has a double bedroom with its own ensuite bathroom, a family bathroom, a twin-bedded room and also a sofa-bed in the lounge – so it can sleep up to 6 people.  It is light and airy and uniquely furnished and comfortable and your chance to safely roam but still stay safe, and close to home.

AND THE WORLD KEEPS ON TURNING…….

Here we are, I’ve lost track of how many weeks into Covid-19 and the Crisis, and yet the World is still turning, and we are still getting up every morning.  It all seems so surreal, and yet it is the new norm.  How sad that we have lost so many lovely people of all ages, but we must get on and get the economy back to as close to normal as we possibly can, for our economy and for our future generations.

Spires Accommodation apartments have provided accommodation for the NHS and for the Food Industry workers and we have been full to bursting throughout this time.  Our cleaners have had to learn new regulations, although to be honest, serviced apartments are cleaned to a high standard continually.  It was just that, at this time, they needed to think closely about protecting themselves from possible dangers.

At Spires, we see the new norm (obviously this is going to be THE CATCH PHRASE for 2020) as a very busy time for us.  We know that many of us will not be able to travel overseas for some time, and we have heard tell, that anyone over 60 will not be travelling for longer still!

But after such a long isolation that is not over yet, we feel that many people will want, and need to get out and about.  Firstly, it maybe that they stay local and to be too far away from the familiarity of home is too scary.  But a couple of nights in a luxury apartment with a chilled bottle of prosecco in the fridge and the ability to stay away from other people, yet be in a different surrounding, may be just the thing.

In one of our serviced apartments, you have the convenience of being self-contained but within easy reach of shops and take away facilities as they open up.  But if you don’t want to face the queues in the shops you can cook your own meals in our full kitchens with all the utensils that you would need. 

All of our apartments are within close proximity to rivers for a lovely evening stroll.

And, as you are feeling more and more adventurous, we are opening up more luxury serviced apartments further afield that you will be able to see on our website once they are available.  This will be your chance to start roaming, once again, but still stay close to home.

LOCKDOWN AND THE HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY IN A COVID-19 PANDEMIC

5 TIPS FOR SERVICED ACCOMMODATION IN A CRISIS:

1.  Give your apartment a few days between guests to help any nasties airborne to have died off

2. Meticulously clean every inch of the apartment including TV controls, light switches, door handles, key- safe, anywhere someone may touch….in fact every single surface.

3. Leave cleaning products for your guests to use if necessary. Antibacterial wipes, bleach and disposable cloths are a necessity.

4. Be available, as we are at Spires Accommodation, for any emergency and to help any guests.

5. Only accommodate key workers, relocation and emergency accommodation and stay within the law.

Spires Accommodation are happy to say that we have been able to accommodate Corporate Key Works in our Burton on Trent apartments and NHS Key Workers in our Shrewsbury apartment and stay within the government legislations and guidelines whilst helping these people to keep our country running smoothly.

All of our standards must remain on high alert as this virus is not going to go away and, to keep the wheels turning in industry and to give leisure guests a great place to stay for the future.  Once they can start to travel, we want all types of guests to feel confident to come back into our apartments.

Everyone wants to feel safe and they have to right to stay, in, not only a beautiful apartment, but also in a clean and safe apartment.  COVID-19 has made us all think of the very simple things that keep us safe.  Like washing our hands for 20 seconds and regularly, being able to see our family and (maybe soon) being able to give them a hug.

As soon as the time is right, we will be welcoming our leisure guests to stay with us and take a much- needed break with their families.  No worries about staying in a hotel room in close proximity of other guests.  This way they can stay in our serviced apartments, cook their own food if they want to, and stay socially distanced from other people but within their own family group for some bonding time.
