Keeping safe

We have worked hard to maintain our high standards of hygiene, health and safety over the past 40 years and never has it been more important than now. We can confirm that we have complied with the ‘COVID-19 Secure guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19’. All members of our team have completed training in COVID-19 prevention steps and social distancing, and will apply an enhanced approach to cleaning and disinfection throughout the hotel. We have also been certified as 'Good to Go' by VisitEngland.

Due to the developing nature of the situation and guidance, our procedures and operations will be continuously reviewed and promptly updated when required. The information that we are sharing with you about how we will operate may therefore be subject to review and change without notice. We politely request the support and assistance of you, our valued guests in this newly changed environment, so that together we manage the COVID-19 health crisis and ensure that Beryl continues to provide a welcome retreat, where our guests and team can feel comfortable and safe.

If in the unfortunate event, you or your household contract COVID-19 or are notified of having been in contact with a confirmed case, we must ask that you follow the Government advice, and remain at home. We will do all we can to help rearrange your stay with us,

The Beryl Team

  • Team members will be required to stay at home if unwell, and must follow official guidance on self-isolating as required.

  • We teach all team members to follow a clinical standard hand washing routine.

  • Our team will be implementing enhanced cleaning and disinfection protocols.

  • You can be confident that we hold ourselves to the same top cleanliness standards back of house as we do in our guest spaces.

  • We have considered the unfortunate but possible eventuality that a guest at our hotel could experience symptoms of COVID-19. We can confirm that we have implemented clear procedures that will be followed in that situation, to protect the well being of other guests and our team.

Our Guests

  • We ask that you do not invite any non-residents to Beryl during your stay.

The House

  • We will contact guests in advance of arrival to obtain check-in information and we will prepare as much as possible in advance of your arrival, in order to reduce the time spent completing check-in at the hotel reception.

  • In order to reduce the number of guests in the property we now only offer 6 guest rooms for general bookings. 

  • You can be confident that cleanliness, hygiene and safe food and drink handling have always been high on our agenda.

Dining & Drinking

  • All public areas have been thoughtfully rearranged with furniture spaces to allow proper distancing.
