    The 15th century Best Western Swan hotel has installed 21st century technology, which is relatively new to the hospitality industry.All 48 bedrooms and the luxurious Cathedral Suite now boast state of the art locking systems, installed by Yorkshire based TLJ security systems. Guests are issued with a card that allows them to gain access to their room without physically touching the lock. The locks also interface with the hotel’s electronic booking system.

    The work caused the minimum of disruption to guests as it took 3 fitters only 5 days to complete.

    Commenting on the project General Manager, Terri Chichester said, “Although these new locks are 600 years younger than parts of the hotel they do not look out of place. The sheer speed of the work meant that we had one instance of a guest returning to their room after breakfast only to find that the door lock had changed!”

    Matthew Cronin, Business Development Manager at TLJ security systems said, “Key card locks are a recognised form of access control throughout the hotel and accommodation sectors. Our latest RFID hotel lock system takes this technology up a new level and we are delighted that such a unique and charming establishment has embraced the latest in hotel guest room security.”
