Stoke by Nayland Hotel re opens with “Good to Go” Visit Britain Industry Standard approval

After 14 weeks of closure since lockdown at the end of March, the family-owned Stoke by Nayland Hotel, Golf, Spa & Lodges resort is now back up and running again – with the added reassurance for customers that they have been awarded the Industry Standard  “Good to Go” kitemark.  This means that the hotel has followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, has a Risk Assessment in place and a process to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.

The team at the award-winning venue is delighted to be welcoming back customers to enjoy the hotel and lodge facilities, as well as some fabulous dining options – offering socially distanced table layouts and large terraces for al fresco dining with stunning views.

The newly branded Sports Bar at SbN is open 7 days from 7am to 11pm serving hearty meals and snacks to visitors and golfers, the first floor Gallery features an enticing menu and panoramic views over the lake for evening dining from 6pm – 9pm, and indulgent Afternoon Teas can be enjoyed 7 days a week from 12 noon until 5pm.

The two championship golf courses at Stoke by Nayland re opened in May, welcoming golfers who were desperate to escape their lockdown and get back out into this stunning Suffolk countryside to meet up with their friends and practice their swings again.

A recent survey was carried out by the hotel and many specific procedures have been adopted based on the responses from over 2,500 existing and potential customers.

Commercial Director, Peter Osborne said: “We were amazed at the enthusiastic response to our survey and at how keen so many of our customers were to return to Stoke by Nayland as soon as lockdown ended.  We’ve put a wide range of strict hygiene and social distancing procedures in place and introduced the “Rest Reassured” logo and theme around the resort.  This is to ensure that our customers can feel confident about being able to relax in a safe environment, and really enjoy their visit - whether it is for golf, dining or spa experiences, or simply to escape to beautiful Constable Country for a much needed hotel break.  Details of these procedures can be found on our webpage at”
