Stay Covid Safe
We know that there is a significant boost to covid safety if we are able to rest rooms between guest occupations. We therefore rest each room for 50 hours between change of occupants. Most other hotels cannot offer this and still offer a competitive rate. Rooms are sanitised and linen and bedding is cleaned at a high enough temperature compliant with covid safety.
We keep up to date with government guidance and are in touch with local authorities and regulatory agencies to determine what’s appropriate for people safety in our buildings and grounds.
As part of the OYO group we have benefited from worldwide expertise in managing “covid safe” stays – learning from how other countries and continents have managed emergence from lockdown. As an independent and flexible hotel, we are able to implement changes with greater ease and commitment than the big groups.
Processes that promote safety. You will notice some changes in our normal booking process. For example, we will try and complete a lot of the formalities of booking and check in/ check out remotely. You will still be greeted personally – albeit, we may be behind some subtle barriers. This is because we still want to make your stay personal and we still want to be vigilant about who is in our hotel, for the sake of everyone’s safety. You will be asked to sign (with a sanitised pen!) a covid symptom free declaration. Whilst we won’t take your temperature, we reserve the right to do this (remotely, of course). You’d also want the assurance that other residents and our staff are similarly symptom free.
We will store contact details for at least 21 days to assist the government’s track and trace initiative.
During lockdown, unlike other hotels we stayed open and supported housing key workers and other key initiatives. That experience has helped us fine tune our implementation and management of covid safe environments for guests, staff and all visitors.
Our food service – with an extensive menu is now resumed. Remote ordering is the norm and you can have food in your room. Our rooms are spacious so this should a safe, pleasant and comfortable experience. Those that can legitimately group (under government legislation) can be offered a private or socially distanced dining area.
Staff will use PPE as required. Whilst the current guidance is for social distancing to be the primary weapon against covid spread and masks are optional, we have plentiful supply for our staff. Guests/visitors can purchase face masks at minimal cost.
There are sanitisation points within a few yards of hotel entry points, lounge areas and your rooms. You can get dispensed, touch-free, measured amount of alcohol based sanitisation gel – that way you can keep your room a “safe zone”.
As an independent hotel we live by our motto - Professional, Personal and Flexible. We think you'll enjoy our hotel, the attention to detail, the warm and friendly welcome and our overall customer centric approach.

a very friendly hotel all staff very polite and helpful this was our second visit and looking forward to our next one our room was clean and warm breakfast was hot with a good choice disabled friendly - Trip advisor Dec 17
When I read the reviews of this hotel, I was genuinely extremely worried to stay here but the horrible reviews are not a true reflection of what The Queensgate Hotel is like. The three rooms we had were large, comfortable and clean. Yes the hotel looks a little tired and could do with new carpet and new curtains, but overall it's a pleasant hotel. I cannot fault the staff! They were absolutely fantastic. The chef and kitchen staff catered perfectly for my allergy needs, all the food is home made, cooked to order to your preference and is served piping hot. Trip Advisor Oct 17

We stayed for 1 night on a weekend deal that included breakfast in the price of the room. The room was very clean, and smelt nice, the bed very comfortable and there were extras like a trouser press. We felt the service was very good, we had no problems finding a space to park in the large carpark to the rear of the hotel, and as we were coming back after hours we were given perfect instructions for reentering the hotel when the main doors were closed. The breakfast was as expected, and very pleasant.
"Three nights in Feb" - I was working in Peterborough and stayed at the Queensgate for three nights - it was comfortable, staff were lovely and helpful, and the food was a acceptable - all for a very good price. So if you need reasonably price accommodation, I would recommend the Queensgate. My only observation is that breakfast could do with a bit of an upgrade as it is a little basic. In summary, it isn't fancy but it is clean (and smelt clean - always a plus in my book!) and tidy and has all of the facilities you would expect and the wifi was reliable. Just what I needed. Stayed February 2017, travelled on business. Trip Advisor review Feb 17
"Fab hotel, lovely staff" - The hotel was lovely and clean. Our room was fab with excellent facilities. We ate in the restaurant and the burgers were wonderful. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again. Lots of parking and a 10 min walk into the town centre. Good value for money! Trip Advisor review Feb 17
