Due to the First Minister of Wales announcement about the new restrictions to the way we can operate, we have sadly and with a heavy heart, decided to close St Brides Spa Hotel from Friday 4th December 2020. However, for any guests wishing to book a self-catering stay by the sea our St Brides Village Apartments will remain open.
We have made this decision after considering all our options and taking into account the way the restrictions will severely limit our ability to give you a great St Brides experience, which we always aim to provide and what you have become accustomed to.
The future looks brighter and we are optimistic about reopening when it is safe to do so and Government restrictions allow. We understand it is unlikely that our trading will resume before mid January.
All guests affected by our closure will be contacted personally to amend their bookings over the coming days. We please ask for your understanding as we go through the list of those to be contacted.
Please check for updates on the current situation on our website and through social media.
We thank you for your continued support and hope you have a safe Christmas at home with your families. We look forward to welcoming you again in the coming year.
St Brides Spa Hotel
We look forward to welcoming you to St Brides Spa Hotel from to give you our warm seaside welcome and high standard of service, whilst keeping you as safe as possible.
The health and safety of St Brides Spa Hotel's staff, community and guests are of paramount importance to us. We are continuously reviewing our hotel operations, implementing extensive health and safety guidelines and training our team, to ensure that St Brides Spa Hotel can welcome all of our loyal, past and new guests to our luxury but Covid-19 safe hotel.
Due to the relaxation of the travel restrictions in Wales which has led to the high demand in guests booking that well needed night away, we have now reached our full capacity in our dining areas . Therefore, at this moment we are unable to welcome non- residents to the Cliff Restaurant and Gallery Bar & Lounge until further notice. We do however still have limited space to accommodate non-residents for our Sunday Lunch, although bookings are essential. We will review this on a regular basis and update you when we can welcome all guests back to St Brides Spa Hotel.
The Thermal Suite and Hydrotherapy Pool in our Marine Spa remains closed until further Welsh Government restrictions are relaxed.
We are monitoring the latest government and industry guidelines and are continually reviewing our procedures and risk assessment. Before making a reservation, we would recommend that you view the current protocols and measures we have in place, in accordance with government restrictions.
Please view each stage of our guests journey below.
You can book your stay by visiting our website www.stbridesspahotel.com or you can speak to a member of our reservations team by calling 01834 812304.
Guests can only stay in the hotel with people in their household.
If you or any household member are displaying any symptoms of Covid-19 (these include, but are not limited to, a high temperature, a new and persistent cough and loss of taste and smell) we would politely ask you to postpone your stay for the safety of our staff, local community and other guests. If your stay has already been booked please don’t hesitate to call us, where we would be happy to change your booking.
We also strongly recommend you to download the government approved track and trace app to ensure that we are all alerted to any guests who may pose a risk of spreading Covid-19.
If you have any specific requirements and needs during your stay with us, please do try and inform us prior to your arrival so we can make the necessary preparations.
Where and if your county face a local lockdown, we ask guests to call and arrange with the reservations team to cancel or postpone their reservation. We have discretion to refuse admission to people from areas with higher cases of coronavirus.
We have introduced an online application to allow for you to check-in up to 48 hours before arrival to allow for a faster and reduced contact experience at check-in. Details will be given on your booking confirmation on how to do this.
If you or any household member are displaying any symptoms of Covid-19 (these include, but are not limited to, a high temperature, a new and persistent cough and loss of taste and smell) we politely ask you not to enter the building.
Guests will all use a designated entrance and will be asked to have their temperature taken by the thermal imaging camera. If any temperature recorded is >37.8 degrees Celsius then the guest will be declined access to the premises.
We kindly ask that guests do not arrive at reception until 3pm to check in. This is so that our Housekeeping Team have their full allotted time to implement the additional cleaning standards for our guests safety.
A Perspex screen has been installed on the reception desk and new signage will be displayed throughout the hotel explaining our new safety guidelines. Hand sanitising stations will be placed at hotel entrances and key areas of the hotel, so we politely ask you to sanitise before entering the hotel.
We do ask where possible guests should present a card as opposed to cash. Guests key cards to their room will be sanitised before being placed into an envelope and handed to the guest. During these times we have been advised against handling and storing of any luggage for ambulant guests. This goes against our nature of providing our guests with a high standard of etiquette, should guests require any assistance with familiarising themselves with their room or amenities we ask them to call reception where a member of staff will be delighted to assist.
We ask all guests to download the NHS COVID-19 Track & Trace app and check in upon arrival using the QR code situated at reception.
We have further enhanced our cleaning procedures to include extensive cleaning of high touch areas and shared surfaces throughout the day.
We do ask our guests to remember and try to practise personal distancing whenever moving throughout the hotel and communicating with members of staff.
Guests are required to adopt a face covering whilst moving through public areas of the hotel.
Hand sanitising stations will be positioned in our key public areas along with appropriate signage, we ask guests to use these whenever entering and moving around the building.
We would like to encourage our residential guests to use the stairs as opposed to the lift. Where guests do use the lift we ask that it is only used by the same household members and hands are sanitised before entering. Additional regular sanitation of the lift will be practised by our staff.
Every bedroom and bathroom will be fully ventilated, cleaned and disinfected vigorously following each stay. We have made sure that all cleaning equipment and products used are in line and adhere to WHO recommendations.
All members of the housekeeping team have been trained on how to best use these. We have identified 10 high touch areas in our rooms which will receive significant attention when cleaning the room. All of our housekeeping team members will adopt the appropriate items of PPE before accessing each room.
All linen and towels will be safely removed from the room and washed professionally on a high heat using sanitising solution. Any printed and non-essential items will be removed from guest rooms to avoid any cross contamination.
Our room directory will now be available to view online. Where guests may need any additional amenities, we ask that they phone reception as opposed to visiting the reception desk.
Guests will find a seal placed on their door which they will need to break on access, this is to demonstrate that no one has accessed their room since finalising our strict sanitation process.
On entering their rooms, guests will find a welcome letter containing the following;
- Up to date information regarding personal distancing

We are fortunate to have spacious and breath-taking areas for dining both inside and outside, we have also extended our dining spaces to include our function spaces.

We will be offering a reduced menu but still ensuring the finest Pembrokeshire produce and locally landed fish will feature as well as vegetarian and vegan options.

We suggest booking your desired times prior to arrival to avoid disappointment. All guests must adhere to their booking time to avoid too many people in the area at any one time.
Guests are required to wear a face covering whilst moving through our public areas and until they are seated in our Cliff Restaurant or Gallery Bar & Lounge.
We ask that all guests sanitise their hands and wait on entrance for a member of staff to show them through to the restaurant and to their table.
We will not be offering drinks at the Gallery Bar; instead we will offer a full table service.
A maximum of 4 people are allowed per restaurant booking. However, this maximum number excludes children under the age of 11 and if more than 4 people live together in a single household then there is no maximum number.

If guests choose to have room service, we ask guests to call reception and leave their tray outside the door to avoid any staff members having to enter their room.
