COVID-19 – our commitment to your safety

We are delighted to welcome you to St.Leonard’s to enjoy excellent food and a comfortable stay in our boutique guest rooms in West Malling. To ensure the safety of our guests and our team, we are following all government guidelines and are keeping an eye on changing regulations.

We have implemented the following measures:


  • When entering and leaving St.Leonard’s you will find hand sanitiser and we ask that you use this to help limit the spread of germs.
  • By the entrance you will find a QR code to scan as part of the NHS Test and Trace scheme. This is to help the government trace all guests who may have been present in the case of a suspected outbreak. If you cannot scan a QR code, or if you do not have the NHS Test and Trace app, a member of our team will take your details. These will be kept on file for 21 days before being deleted.
