Hotel Opening Update
It has been more than 100 days since we were obliged to close the doors at the Merton Hotel due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We always said that the closure would be temporary and we are delighted to announce that further to the Jersey Government advice released yesterday, we are now in a position to open once again to overseas visitors.
Our team have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure a safe and warm welcome back to the Merton Hotel and we are pleased to announce the opening date of Friday 17 July
Our luxury self-catering Merton Suites are available and open from Friday 3 July.
For any customers who are affected by the temporary closure we would like to offer you the option to amend your reservation to anytime in the future, in any of our properties up to the end of 2021.
If you have a booking with us, please contact our reservations team on 0845 800 5555 or via email email@example.com
We ask for your patience and understanding during this challenging time as many of our team continue to work remotely. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Merton Hotel and the beautiful island of Jersey soon.
Update on facilities and opening times
Things may look a little different around the hotel as we have adapted our operation to what is best described as the 'new normal'. We've had to put new rules in place to protect your health. We appreciate that some of these may make your visit a little different to usual but they are genuuinely there to help.
The conditions are new to all of us and it will take time to adjust. Our staff have been trained but we've not had customers for a very long time, so we may be a little rusty.
Enjoy great food and friendly physically distanced service at our various restaurants and bars.
Please book your dining times in advance so that we can avoid crowding and ensure physical distancing.
