Keeping you safe.

We're open for all stays.


We continue to be open for all stays across all our locations. Planning a trip? Here’s a few things you can expect from us, so you can sleep soundly knowing you’re in good (clean) hands.

Clean & Safe.

What’s important to you is important to us. That’s why we’ve upped the ante on our (already rigorous) health & safety measures. With no-contact cleans on request, contactless check-in/check-out, studio living and more. So, even though life may not feel normal, you’ll feel safe and comfortable at Locke.

On your terms.

Can’t make it? Plans up in the air? We get it. We’re here to make your life a little easier. We offer fully flexible rates meaning you’ll be able to cancel your booking up to 24 hours prior to your stay (1-28 nights) or 7 nights prior to your stay (29+ nights). However, due to current circumstances we’ve amended our non-refundable terms so that booking amendments can be made if you need to rebook for an alternative date. Just drop a note to [email protected] and we'll help you out. 

Here's to the team.

We’re immensely grateful to each and every one of our team on the ground who are keeping our guests safe and reassured, and our office-based staff who keep things moving forward. You can find out how we are keeping them well and safe below.

What’s important to you is important to us. That’s why we’ve upped the ante on our (already rigorous) health and safety measures to make sure that when you stay with us, you can sleep sound knowing you’re well looked after.

We’re ISAAP ‘Stay with Confidence’ accredited, so when you stay with us you can sleep sound knowing you’re in safe hands.

What we’re doing:

Studio living.
Our fully-equipped studios mean you can continue your day-to-day, or hunker down and stay at home.

Contactless check-in/check-out
We've made some changes to our check-in/check-out experience to make social distancing easier. With plenty of hand sanitiser and hygiene products available throughout if you need them.

Hygiene products & high-touch, deep clean approach
We're keeping our beady eye on those high touch areas like lifts, switches and handles, and giving them a (very) regular spritz of disinfectant to keep them spic and span, and germ free.

No-contact cleans on request
We've resumed our regular weekly cleans, but you can request a ‘no-contact clean’ and pick up fresh linen and Ecolab cleaning products at the front desk.

Food delivery & cooking in-room
If you don't fancy living off Deliveroo, you are welcome to get food delivered to your apartment. 

Keeping in touch
Each team member has been fully briefed on how to approach guests that may be unwell or are self-isolating or quarantining, and we remain in close daily contact to ensure they remain in good health.

Yes. In locations where hospitality venues are permitted leisure guests, our co-working spaces will be open to the public. If leisure guests are not permitted, our co-working spaces will remain open but for Locke guests and residents only. 

Please refer to local government guidelines on whether facemasks are required in hospitality venues.

And, if you prefer more privacy and the comfort of your own space, our apartments are also well equipped for working.

We're immensely grateful to each and every one of our team on the ground who are keeping our guests safe and reassured and, and our office-based staff who keep things moving forward. Here's how we're keeping them safe.

What we’re doing:

No-touch approach.
Aside from our regular weekly cleaning, we've introduced a ‘no-touch’ housekeeping service, where guests can request cleaning products and linen to be left at their door. Rooms are deep cleaned after every stay. 

Hygiene products
We have distributed hand sanitiser and hygiene products throughout each of our properties for use.

Keeping in touch
Each team member has been fully briefed on how to approach guests that may be unwell or are self-isolating.

Working from home
All of our office-based teams have all been provided with equipment and flexibility to work from home when necessary.

In line with government guidelines there is no longer a need to self-certify at any of our locations, as we are open to all types of stay. 

Note that on arrival, at some of our properties you may be asked to present further evidence that you have the right to travel, as stipulated by national authorities. Without this, you may not be able to stay (and we don't like having to turn anyone away).

Yes, our gyms remain open for guests use. 

Where social distancing is required under local government guidelines, a booking system will be implemented to facilitate this and to ensure equipment is cleaned between uses. Speak to one of the House Hosts when you arrive if you are unsure of the current policy at the hotel in question.

Yes, you will be able to order grocery delivery (and takeaway) to your apartment and our House Hosts will be more than happy to help you with this. 

Although our studios and suites are self-contained, our buildings aren't strictly classified in this way by the UK Government. This is because we have a range of indoor communal spaces that are shared between guests (like co-working spaces and coffee shops).

We don't offer any specific NHS or keyworker discounts at the moment. 

However, we do work with the team over at Nights On Us to pledge free stays to NHS workers on a regular basis, as a way of giving back to the community.

Our restaurants, cafes and bars will be open where permitted in line with local government guidelines. Please note that some of our partners may be operating on a reduced timetable.  
 
For the most up to date information on opening times, contact the venue directly. If you'd prefer to cook in your room, grocery delivery is always an option (or we can suggest a great takeaway).
