Coronavirus Help & Information
We are delighted to share that we are now open and welcoming guests! We will be operating in accordance with latest Government advice, so please familiarise yourself with the information provided below. Should you have any queries, please get in touch.
We have stepped up our already stringent cleaning regime and are using HIT (High Impact Touch) cleaning methods in all areas. We successfully implemented social distancing measures whilst providing a takeaway service and rooms for keyworkers, and we're adapting and progressing these measures following Government guidelines so that we can safely open our doors to guests.
We have also relaxed our cancellation policy at this time to allow you to amend or cancel your booking up to 24 hours ahead of your stay so that you can book in confidence.
What is your cancellation policy at this time?

Your experience may look a little different in this new normal, but we hope you will still be able to relax and enjoy your stay in the same way, and receive the same friendly service from our wonderful team, albeit with a few small changes we had to introduce for your own safety and reassurance.
What measures have you put in place to ensure we can visit safely? (please note that these are subject to change based on Government guidelines).

• We ask that before you enter any communal areas you wash your hands thoroughly, we also have hand sanitising essentials at the front desk should you need these.
• To minimise contact we are not offering a daily room turn around service for those staying more than one night. Should you require any top ups of refreshments or linen please feel free to ask at reception. If you do require a full clean throughout your stay please let us know and we can arrange this.
