Seymour Hotels introduce the Safe Stay Pledge 

At Seymour Hotels of Jersey, the safety and well being of our customers, employees and partners has 
always been our top priority. Even more so today. As we begin to reopen our businesses, we are 
doing everything to ensure that visitors to our hotels and restaurants will enjoy an experience that is 
cleaner and safer than ever before. We remain committed to upholding the highest standards of 
cleanliness throughout our properties. 




Stay Safe

To meet the new challenges presented by COVID-19, the Group have responded by implementing 
new, stringent, precautionary operational measures to protect the health and safety of all their 
employees and customers, to provide a safe and clean environment for all. The Group is proud to 
now introduce its ‘Safe Stay Pledge’. 

David Seymour, Managing Director said “This new initiative is focused on enhanced cleaning 
practices, social interactions and workplace protocols, throughout the customer journey. Our Safe 
Stay Pledge will seek to improve our established procedures and standards, to ensure both 
customers and employees are confident in the cleanliness and safety of our establishments now that 
lockdown measures have begun to ease.” 

He continues “This initiative represents a heightened level of focus for the Group with an excellent 
reputation for its standards of cleanliness. Seymour Hotels has always set the most demanding 
expectations for cleaning and safety. With the Safe Stay Pledge, we are enhancing these standards 
further to ensure customer confidence. We have worked in accordance with guidance issued by the 
Jersey and UK Governments, as well as local Environmental Health authorities and WHO 

The Seymour Group have created an 8 point plan and have produced an in-house film to highlight 
the new measures being taken and to reassure customers who are planning to visit Jersey this 
season and make the most of our beautiful Island. To find out more about the measures being taken
