As it has always been, the safety and security of our residents, employees and guests remains our highest priority. We are doing everything we can to ensure everybody’s safety and are continuously checking government guidance and responding accordingly as the situation around novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve.

We will continue to update this page with the latest information regarding the safety of our unique community. Currently we are closed.


Track and Trace – Updated as of 2 January, 2021

The Government has requested that we collect contact details of a member of each group to assist with the Track and Trace program. Please be patient with us as we cooperate with this instruction. 

We’ll meet again! – Updated as of 2 January, 2021

The Visitor Centre, the Village and the Red Lion Hotel will re-open pending Government guidance. Naturally, we’ll be making changes to the way we operate and have been working hard behind the scenes to stay up to date and implement the Governments ‘Covid Secure’ schemes. 

Hotel Bookings – Updated as of 2 January, 2021

The Red Lion is sadly closed.  We’ve created a ‘Book and Relax’ policy, whereby all bookings are refundable upon request. We hope to see you again when we reopen.

Refunds – Updated as of 2 January, 2021

Throughout the current situation, we’ve prioritised our guests physical and financial safety.  For peace of mind, we’ve developed a ‘Book and Relax’ policy, providing a no quibble, 100% return of funds to  guests who request a refund. We’ve decided to extend that policy and any booking now made will be offered the same courtesy and security. 

Health and Hygiene – Updated as of 2 January, 2021

We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. In response to the coronavirus, we have taken additional measures developed in consultation with global and local public health authorities (including the WHO and CDC) to make our cleaning and hygiene protocols even more rigorous:

  • We have implemented the governments Covid Secure scheme. All staff will be issued with PPE and protective screens, a one way system and social distancing best practices.
  • Our hotel teams are receiving ongoing briefings and enhanced operating protocols.
  • We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas (including lobbies, elevators, door handles, public bathrooms, etc.) and have continued the use of hospital-grade disinfectant.
  • We will continue to adjust food and beverage service in accordance with current food safety recommendations.
  • We have increased the deployment of hand sanitisers.
