"With the decision to close down our hotels due to the COVID-19 outbreak, and having been recommended SecuriGroup by a colleague, the turnaround from initial discussions on availability and costs to implementing full 24/7 cover took less than a week for 38 properties across the UK. I would have no hesitation in recommending SecuriGroup to anyone requiring a security presence and thank them sincerely for helping to eliminate a major concern for the company and our insurers during this period." Hugh Cooper, Development Director, Macdonald Hotels & Resorts
In April 2020, Macdonald Hotels & Resorts appointed SecuriGroup to provide immediate security to 38 of their hotels located throughout the UK, in the midst of a business and leisure landscape that was changing on a global scale.
The contract and subsequent deployment was in place in less than a week, requiring clear and consistent communication, dedicated and responsive management and security teams, and robust COVID-19 safety procedures and contingencies to be in place.
Regional Manager, John Gallacher, who oversaw the mobilisation said, "We were delighted to partner with Macdonald Hotels during this challenging period. The mobilisation was a collaborative approach by our management team, and our UK-wide footprint meant we were able to deploy quickly in each location to ensure the security and safety of all properties during the pandemic."
All hotels have now safely reopened to the public with all necessary precautions in place, and SecuriGroup is delighted to have had the opportunity to cultivate a relationship with such a prestigious and established brand.
