To Lake Munmorah Motel Potential Guests, Past Guests & Supporters,
We are currently still trading & very much open for business!
We are operating within government guidelines for social distancing & acceptable reasons for travel.
Social distancing measures may be with us for some time to come and travel restrictions, though currently easing, may still be in place during your stay with us.
So please consider the current restrictions, your need for travel & overnight stays before booking with us.
The local police who will enforce current restrictions, have advised that there is a fine of $1000 for individuals (that means You, the guest) & $5000 for businesses (that means Us, motel management) that do the wrong thing.
Though our recent experience with guests at the property show that most are willing and generally operate within the current rules without issue.
Changes we have introduced here at the motel:
- We expect both staff & guests to understand & respect the current social distancing rules, maintaining a 1.5m distance from others when on-site & coming and going from the property.
- If you are booking online, we may call you to confirm your reasons for travel, so please make sure your contact number (mobile prefered) is correct on the booking form.
- Where possible we will look to stagger bookings within the motel building, to increase social distance (reducing neighbours etc)
- Our check-in procedure has been streamlined and the plastic barrier window at reception remains closed during check-in.
- Our check-out procedure is still an easy key drop at the reception window before 10am.
- We have upgraded our check-out cleaning process, to deep cleans, for every room check-out.
Kindly keep reading below the updated advice we are following.
Thanks for reading.
We have sampled the below advice in Blue from the NSW Health website:
