TLH Leisure Resort - plans to reopen

We are very aware of the impact this extraordinary crisis continues to have on our guests, staff, and suppliers.

As you no doubt know, in support of Government recommendations regarding the Coronavirus outbreak, we have had to temporarily close all 4 of our hotels and all our leisure and retail facilities until further notice.

Following the Prime Minister’s announcements on Monday 11th May, we are pleased to say that we are now planning to reopen parts of our business on Saturday 4th July, subject of course to any changes the Government may make between now and then.

We will of course be following Government guidelines and taking all necessary steps to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our guests and our teams on reopening.

 Please read our updated terms and conditions below which should answer any immediate queries you may have. Although our sales and reservations offices are currently closed you can reach us by email on rooms@tlh.co.uk and someone will reply to any queries in due course.

 We will we continue to monitor the situation. Please keep checking our website and social media channels for updates and information.

 What about my booking?

If you have a booking with us between now and the 4th July 2020:

 All breaks for both private and group customers have been postponed. Please rest assured your money is safe. We are offering all customers the option to rebook another break any time in the next 18 months. Please note if your replacement break is:

  • Of a lower value to your current booking we will credit your account or refund the difference to you
  • Of a higher value you will make a payment to us of the difference 28 days prior to the start of the break.

 Alternatively we will offer a refund, although as you can appreciate there may be a delay in processing this due to the number of guests affected and while our team is out of the office.

  If you have a booking after the 4th July 2020:

 We do not envisage any changes to bookings after the 4th July as we hope we will have re-opened and you will be able to enjoy your break with us, therefore our normal terms and conditions apply.

Group Bookings

If you have booked with us via a private group for a stay up until the 4th July we will be discussing alternative options with your group organiser.

 If you have booked via a coach operator or an on line booking agency please contact them directly as they hold your booking details.

 What about my Aztec Gym, Pool or Studio membership?

 All memberships were frozen on Saturday 21st March 2020. If we can reopen on 4th July as planned, all memberships will then restart on this day. For customers who have annual memberships, an extension will be implemented to reflect any periods of closure. We will contact our Club members directly with any further details.

 Although there are still challenges ahead, we look forward to welcoming you back to TLH Leisure Resort very soon. In the meantime thank you for your continued support and we wish all our customers the very best during this difficult time.
