• Stay With Us

Your safety while staying with us is our number one priority. These are just some of the key measures we take to ensure your safety and that of our staff:

  • If you are feeling under the weather, please don’t come to the hotel.
  • Our staff are asked not to come to work should they not feel well and they are all temperature checked on arrival at work.
  • When each guest leaves, we clean and housekeep their room thoroughly and we then ‘fog’ it and seal it with a door seal to await the next guest’s arrival.
  • Please note that if you are staying for more than one night, your room will not be serviced. If you require extra towels, more tea or coffee, or anything else please ask Reception who will leave it outside your door.
  • We have designated staff members who clean all touch points on a regular basis throughout the hotel and restaurant.
  • Our chefs and kitchens have introduced even stricter health, hygiene and safety measures than usual.
  • All our restaurant tables are distanced appropriately.
  • Guests receive a pre-arrival email explaining all the procedures for checking in and out of the hotel, to ensure social distancing is observed at all times.
  • Menus are only available on a single use basis, digitally or displayed on blackboards.
  • For your and their protection, contact with our staff is kept to an absolute minimum and they are well trained in any interaction with guests.
  • We must politely request that all guests wear face coverings whilst on our premises in all public areas and to only remove your mask when sitting at a table to eat or drink.

We have twenty-seven individually designed Classic, Chic and Luxury rooms, which includes ‘our lodge’. Once you’ve booked your sleep, you can enjoy roll top baths, rain forest showers, crisp white Egyptian cotton sheets and thick over-sized towels. Each room is equipped with what you might expect, including unique tea trays, which a lot of our guests want to take home (but can’t)!

The property dates back to the 17th century, so with this in mind some rooms have slightly lower ceilings, with original beams on show, so if you’ve been blessed with height, just let us know prior to booking so we can ensure there will be no bumps in the night.

We warmly welcome all four-legged friends – they even get their own Dog Room Service menu!
