After each guest departs the room it is thoroughly cleaned with detergent and disenfectant and clean cloths for each room.

All linen and towels are double bagged and sent to the laundry after 72 hours.

All cushions and throws have been removed to avoid the spread of Covid19 so we apologise for the rooms looking bare.

Guests of Keyworkers are not permitted to visit during your stay to keep us all safe so please don’t bring partners with you unless they can prove they are a key worker/Essential worker and can prove they are working.
