General Property Information

The property is consistently deep cleaned and sanitised. We are maintaining a schedule of multiple sanitation cleanings daily, with a particular focus on the high traffic touch points to ensure safe and comfortable environments for our guests and team.

  •  Hand sanitiser stations are located throughout the property, and we have anti bacterial hand soap to each room for guests’ personal use.
  •  Disposable masks are available upon request at the front desk. 

The health of our team members is being carefully monitored daily. Any team member that has any reason to believe they may have been exposed to COVID -19 or the flu, or are showing symptoms of either, is sent home immediately and is directly referred to our trained occupational health professional for assessment.

  • Dylan is offering all guests the choice of either advance online contactless check-in or the traditional check in upon arrival to the hotel. 
  • You can access your bedroom via your mobile phone through our keyless entry technology or with a traditional bedroom keycard sanitized for your protection.
  • We will gather more pre-arrival information in order to facilitate an expedited check-in process and reduce contact with our Reception Team.

  • Guests will receive a final bill via their in-room television and email prior to departure to facilitate an expedited check-out process. 



The hardworking housekeeping team received updated training on the new Covid-19 hotel protocols for disinfecting and sanitising guest rooms to the highest standards.  Prior to your arrival your bed-room will be cleaned and finished with a full sanitisation with a particular focus on the high touch points within the room. 

We want to provide you the highest level of service and attention, but we understand if you prefer to limit our team members entering your room. To accommodate personal preferences, we are offering options for Housekeeping services:

• Daily Service: The classic Dylan standard, for those guests who prefer a daily make up service.

• Limited Service: Our team will access your room once daily to empty your bins and restock your amenities.

• Stock Up Service: We understand some of you may not want to share your space with others once you arrive, so we will stock up your room appropriately for your entire stay. Any additional requests can be serviced by the Guest Services Team with prior arrangement. 

We have removed some of the decorative items in the guest rooms to maximise the sanitation level in the room. 

In order to ensure your safety and comfort, our team will be wearing protective equipment while providing their services. 



To ensure a pleasant and safe dining experience, table spacing has been adjusted to allow for two meters between tables. Guests will be seated at every other table for tables that cannot be moved, to comply with social distancing measures. 

While we are always diligent in maintaining the highest cleaning & sanitation procedures, surfaces and menus will be sanitised with increased regularity and management oversight. 

The breakfast buffet has been replaced with a full a la carte breakfast service

The hotel has a choice of two all-weather heated outdoor terraces for dining and drinks

In room dining and drinks will be available to all guests who do not wish to enjoy the dining spaces
