Frequently Asked Questions
Here are answers to some of our guests' frequently asked questions about booking, gift cards and before the stay.
About the Corona infection
At Hooks Herrgård we closely monitor the evolution of the spread of the Corona virus and how it can affect our business. The Public Health Authority gives us good recommendations and guidelines through their information channels. The situation in the world is uncertain and we are ready for new directives to come at short notice.
Since 1963, the Edberg family has welcomed you to Hooks Herrgård, which dates back to the 1300s and has since blossomed into one of Småland's most pleasant facilities. Of course, we will continue to be a pleasant meeting point. The health and safety of our employees and guests is very important to us. Our action plan means that we work preventively with good hand hygiene in all departments and, due to the circumstances, have increased cleaning efforts in our public environments. Employees who have been in the vulnerable areas are quarantined after returning home. Employees and guests who in any way feel ill stay at home and in the slightest suspicion of coronary disease should be contacted.
We serve breakfast on a buffet and encourage our guests to book time for breakfast to avoid queuing. If you as a guest do not feel comfortable with a buffet, you can order breakfast the night before and we serve breakfast at table at the appointed time. We have chosen lunch not to serve lunch on buffet. We offer table service with salad and bread, main course (choice of meat or fish) and coffee and dessert. Our three course dinner is served as before at the table and in our spacious restaurant we ensure a good distance between the tables.
Banning the crowd of over 50 people does not affect larger facilities as hotels, conferences, restaurants, golf and bath houses (in our case spa). At collections in the spa and restaurant, actions are taken to distribute guests at different times. Otherwise, Hooks Herrgård conducts its business as usual and at present we are not affected by the government's decision on canceled events. However, the situation in the world is uncertain and new directives can come at short notice.
This gives you a warm reception from our staff, who are fully understanding that there is great concern and we do our best to answer your questions. For questions regarding regarding our cancellation policy see link below. Free re-booking until 3 pm the day before arrival for private guests, 48 hours for groups and conferences.
