Due to the latest government update we have made a number of changes to the operation of the hotel. We will remain OPEN for business guests and keyworkers only and have already put in place many hygiene and safety precautions. We look forward to welcoming back leisure guests when we are allowed and when it is safe to do so (Monday 17th May).

The health and safety of our guests and staff is paramount and have worked hard behind the scenes to put all necessary procedures in place as a way of reassurance for you.

Summarised below are some general procedures, that will allow us to keep offering a range of services. We will continue to update and adjust our procedures detailed on this page.
