Gardenview Hotel Smoke-free Hotel Policy

Gardenview Hotel is committed to providing its guests and associates with a 100% smoke-free environment, and is proud to boast one of the most comprehensive smoke-free hotel policies in the industry. Since its introduction in May 2006, the policy has been implemented by Gardenview Hotel.

The smoke-free hotel policy has received praise and positive support from guests and the broader community, and Gardenview Hotel remains committed to achieving a smoke-free environment. The continuing effort to comply with the smoke-free policy reinforces Gardenview Hotel’s commitment to being an environmentally friendly company.

We look forward to welcoming you — so you can experience the clean and clear difference that Gardenview Hotel offers.

1. What areas does Gardenview Hotel’s Smoke-free Hotel Environment policy include? 

Gardenview Hotel’s Smoke-free policy includes guest rooms, public spaces and hotel management work areas.

2. Why did Gardenview Hotel implement a Smoke-free Hotel policy? 

The majority of guest requests favour a non-smoking hotel environment. The only way to provide this experience is to not allow smoking within the property. Therefore, we have applied this preference throughout our hotel. We do provide designated smoking areas outside the building to accommodate the needs of guests who smoke.

3. How will smokers be accommodated? Will they be able to smoke on the property? 

Although smoking is not permitted within hotel buildings themselves, guests who smoke are permitted to do so outside in designated areas.

4. What measures will Gardenview Hotel take to enforce the Smoke-free Hotel policy? 

All property staff have been trained to respond to potential violations of the policy. For example, housekeepers are trained to observe signs of smoking in the hotel. Guests are reminded at the time of booking and upon arrival at the hotel that smoking is not permitted inside the building. Pre-arrival email notifications also include a reference to the policy. Signage is also placed in the rooms and the information about all properties being non-smoking is highlighted in all online and offline marketing material. There is a significant room recovery fee for guests who do not comply in order to cover the extensive cost of restoring guest rooms to a smoke-free condition.

Pet policy

For the comfort and enjoyment of all guests we have a strict “No Pet” policy, excluding registered guide-dogs. For further information, enquire at the property directly.

10. Car Parking

Gardenview Hotel offers ample parking for all guests in our undercover parking garage. All guest can enjoy FREE undercover parking for 1 vehicle for the duration of their stay.
