Dear Guests,

It is with heavy hearts, that we have made the very difficult decision to follow the Government
advice and temporarily close The Stafford London, Northcote and Norma for the safety of our team,
our guests and our community. While we would love to welcome you with our warm hospitality, we
believe that closing is in the best interest of public health at this time.

We would like to extend our gratitude for your support and loyalty and we hope you and your loved
ones are safe and well. As soon as a re-opening date for our Stafford Collection properties becomes
more apparent, we will be back in touch.

We would like to wish you and your families and friends the very best in these challenging times, and
we look forward to welcoming to ‘Home’ to The Stafford, Northcote and Norma very soon.

Best Wishes

Stuart Procter
Chief Operating Officer
