Dear valued customers

In order to help in the effort to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, it is with great sadness that we announce that all Countrywide Hotels are closed until further notice.

We have offered our hotels for service to key workers, and they will remain open for essential stays. Our sales teams will continue to be on hand to answer any queries.

Our commitment to the health and wellbeing of our employees and guests is our number one priority, and we do not make these decisions lightly but must work together in these difficult times.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our employees for their complete devotion to our guests and acknowledge their loyalty and courage in these difficult times.

Please do stay in touch with us. Follow us on social media or sign up for our newsletters for updates. If you have any questions or concerns, or think we can help in any way, please don’t hesitate to contact us:

Simon Mason, General Manager – SimonM@pendulumhotel.co.uk
Sadie Rowell, Sales Support – sadie.rowell@countrywidehotels.co.uk

On behalf of all our teams, at each hotel, I would like to thank you all for your loyalty and support during this challenging time, stay well and we hope to see you very soon.

Darren Patt
Managing Director
