Covid Strategies at Woodbridge


Like you, we are monitoring things closely, and all of our decisions are made based on two criteria:

– being able to keep everyone safe, and

– being able to deliver on the promise of a wonderful stay.


Please read details of our COVID SAFE practices, FLEXIBLE booking terms below.

Bending the Booking Terms

Now that we seem to have reached a ‘new’ normal, normal booking and payment terms will apply.

In the event that Covid restrictions force guests to change plans, we will leave reservations in place, follow developments and then negotiate with guests to reschedule their trip.

Whatever happens, we will work it through.

Interstate & International visitors will be screened before being permitted to enter Tasmania.

Please see the details here on the Tasmanian Government Coronavirus website


Interstate & International guests will not be asked to reshow their proof of vaccination on checking into The Woodbridge,

but they may be asked to show proof of place of residence such as drivers licence or passport.


As guests may move freely and associate closely in hallways and common areas, Tasmanian residents are asked to NOT visit The Woodbridge unless they are fully vaccinated. We would appreciate being offered proof of full vaccination via Australian immunisation Register (AIR) via MyGov, Check in TAS application, or approved medical exemption via that site.

Covid Bubble Strategy

Our Bubble Strategy has been created to ensure your safe enjoyment of The Woodbridge.

This strategy includes reduced contact check-in and check-out options,  individual private entrance options, limited access hallway traffic, closed access to your room, contactless concierge services, e-compendiums, in-room services, social distancing dining, e-menus & orders and revised food services.

Common areas have been reconfigured for social distancing.

Full contact details are required for making a reservation and QR code checkin is required on arrival, enabling speedy contact tracking if required. Guests will be advised of any further requirements and are asked to bring a mask just in case.

Covid Clean

Woodbridge has always followed sound principles of cleanliness and hygiene.

Our protocols have been enhanced to address the current Covid precautions, including deep clean between occupancies, no staff entrance to your private room ‘bubble’, hand sanitation stations throughout the property, regular sanitation of surfaces of common areas.

To maintain the integrity of your room bubble, daily room service has been suspended. Stays are configured in multiples of 2 & 3 days, with room service offered after 3 days. Replacement towels, toiletries etc are available at any time of request.

We own all our own linens, so you know exactly where they have been, and the sanitation standards.

All Covid Safe Plans required by government are in place.

Covid Breakfast in a Bottle Buffet

Meals in the Dining Room of  The Pavilion at The Woodbridge has always been a relaxed, convivial affair. While guests have always seated separately, they have often talked between tables and compared notes on the day’s activities.

The Pavilion is very spacious, and our numbers are small. Social distancing is not a problem.

However, Covid did pose a few problems for our dining style, particularly for breakfast. Breakfasts had always been a delightful, relaxed combination of help yourself buffet and individually served items. Guests loved our buffet and we did not want to lose that great morning vibe. But with Covid, buffets were out! Correct?

There were a lot of sleepless nights, and a few false starts, and trials and errors.

We think we now have it right.


Dinner is more or less unchanged.

Breakfast? Well we hope our Breakfast in a Bottle Buffet is going to give you good giggle while keeping your safe!
