COVID-19 Statement

COVID-19 Statement

Updated 16.07.2020

Until the 19th July:

The rule of 6 or two households will apply indoors, with a 30 person limit outside. 

Social distancing and facemask requirements will still be in place alongside strict hygiene controls and the requirement of track and trace.

Step 4 in the easing of restrictions commencing from 19th July. 

Whilst the majority of legal restrictions have been removed the government guidance has been given that people will be expected to protect themselves and others through informed choice. The government recommends that “face coverings are worn in crowded and enclosed spaces, such as public transport, when mixing with people you don’t normally meet.”

Should you have any concerns about social distancing or other measures when visiting the hotel please do speak to a member of the team.


All new reservations confirmed will be monitored in relation to the on-going situation and will be given flexibility around the cancellation policy.

For guests notified to self-isolate, or with a positive case or suspected symptoms please kindly call us to re-arrange or cancel your reservation.
