'Here for You' at Park Place Apartments
We look forward to welcoming all essential travellers during these level 5 restrictions and we will re-open to all other guests on December 1st 2020. We know that you will have heightened concerns regarding hygiene during your stay with us and trust in cleanliness standards will be critical to you in choosing to stay with us.
With that in mind, we have created a programme that will focus on the highest standards of cleanliness and social distancing throughout the entire property. In these unprecedented times, your – and our team’s – safety is our highest priority.
The success of the Worlwide battle against Covid-19 was and still is, dependant on all of us working together as a community. This is just as relevant during your stay at Park Place. You are a vital component in ensuring continued success and we need your commitment to maintaining the following established Covid-19 public health practices and our operational plan:
- Use sanitising stations and wash hands regularly
- Observe social distancing with other guests and staff
- Parents must supervise and remain present with children at all times
- We will take payment prior to arrival, where possible
- Please continue to observe the recommendation of the HSE as has been advised by the government since the onset of the Coronavirus
- And if you feel ill, please do not enter Park Place Apartments
Unfortunately, failure to co-operate will leave us with no other option but to ask you to vacate the premises in the interests of public health. Please understand that this for YOUR safety as much as our staff and other guests and to ensure that everyone has a safe and pleasant experience with us at Park Place.
And so, we have outlined below the new measures put in place as part of our 'Here for You' Covid-19 plan that will help to keep all of us safe. This outlines the procedures that underpin our commitment to you and the terms & conditions that we expect of you during your stay with us.
If you have any queries that are not answered below, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to welcoming you to Park Place Apartments and we appreciate your custom and collaboration.

Your self catering Apartment
- Careful consideration has been given to the preparation and presentation of your apartment and you might find somethings different. For example, we may no longer offer pencils or notepads, bed throws and cushions have been removed and the tv remote is sealed and sanitised at each clean.
- Our deep clean of “High Touch Areas” will include extra disinfecting of the most frequently touched guests room areas such as light switches, door handles, toilet flusher, taps, intercom and more.
- Staff will change into a new set of PPE before entering each room to reduce the risk of cross contamination.
- When an apartment is vacated after a stay, all material will be removed and cleaned (even if unused), including bed linen, towels, bathmats, and all amenities such glasses, coasters will be cleaned or washed etc.
- All surfaces will be cleaned and disinfected and left so that the agents have time to work. They will then be cleaned down again paying attention to the high touchpoints.
- Our deep clean process will include washing down all tiles, grouting, as well as hoovering and washing all floors.
- The apartment will be ventilated for several hours before the next arrival. This may result in some delays but this is necessary to ensure correct sanitisation.
- When the supervisor/ manager checks the room, (s)he will re-sanitise all high touch points again while doing so to ensure “double sanitisation”.
- Finally, the supervisor will seal the apartment door and 'sign off' when it was cleaned. This apartment will then not be entered again until your arrival.
