Village Accommodation Group launches Safe Place Programme

New Zealand’s Village Accommodation Group is rolling out its new ‘Village Safe Place’ programme across all five Wellington apartment properties next week, including the 5-star Boulcott Suites and AREA Events conference centre.

Enhanced hygiene standards and processes were implemented early on, prior to lockdown, and have since been developed into a full programme that includes contactless check in and check out facilities, in-room health kits for guests to utilise, increased frequency of public area cleaning and regular sanitisation of high use items such as keyboards, phones, key cards and door handles.

An in depth 80-point Room Clean has been introduced, based on World Health Organisation guidelines, to ensure cleaning standards are the highest available.

Max the Voice Activated Assistant will also be introduced in July 2020, to allow for contactless digital concierge services in guest rooms.

“Being a locally focused company, we have been pleased to play our part in providing facilities and services for essential workers, long staying guests and those needing accommodation during a difficult time for so many in our community,” said managing director Adam Cunningham.

“Through this newly developed Village Safe Place programme, we are wishing to provide reassurance for our valued guests that we are a safe place to return to in level 2 and beyond, and are doing everything possible to deliver this environment.”
