We would be grateful if all our Guests could kindly read the information below so that you are prepared for your stay with us. These apply from Monday 19th July.

Arrival and Check-In

  • We would be grateful if you would not arrive earlier than our 4pm Check-In time unless an earlier time has been agreed prior to your arrival, This is to give us the time we need for the extra cleaning required.

  • We are happy to still help carry your baggage to your room.
  • There will be Hand Sanitiser in the hall for guest use
  • The NHS QR Track and Trace Code in the hall is available on arrival if you would like to use it. We do have your details on our booking system but will need the full address for each guest in the party.

During your Stay

  • We would prefer that you wear your mask on entering the B&B and when moving from your room to breakfast or going out but this is now voluntary.
  • We will not be doing our daily room refresh/tidy. If you would like your bin emptied, please leave it outside your room.

Guests and Covid-19

  • If a guest falls ill with Covid-19 during their stay we will take advice from the Government website regarding self-isolation and returning home safely.
  • If a guest shows symptoms of the virus within the two weeks following their stay we would expect them to inform us straight away.

We have always prided ourselves on giving warm and friendly customer service. These adjustments to the normal levels of service are there for your safety as well as our own. If you have any queries, please don't hesitate to email or phone us on 01297 631351 and we will be happy to help.
