Corona virus statement
To all of our lovely guests and friends,
We are hibernating once again and with health and direction, we will be here to welcome you back as soon as conditions allow. We are here for you and are currently taking bookings for the future via e-mails and over the phone. Sadly however, our amazing food operation is now on hold, The hotel rooms are available for front line workers but without the fine dining element.(see details below).
Although we are experiencing difficult times we must embrace the times of hesitation and uncertainty as friends, colleagues and families start to get their socialising back on track.
We have been seeing a generous flow of guests, both of old and new with the broadest smiles and showing great confidence for the measures and procedures that we now have in place.. With a continuing cautious approach and some serious common sense in place to protect us all, we are superbly confident for the future weeks and months so that comfort and confidence can shine through and normality may well be on the horizon…
Patience and self-restraint is an amazing thing and we all are obliged to practice these skills once again in order to put this awful situation behind us.
We will continually update where we can on social media and a new page on our website will be on-line for the duration of this extraordinary situation so that we may hopefully present a clear picture to you of our abilities and intentions.
Accommodation is open to front-line and essential workers and we welcome you.
So we are here, almost back to normal, as far as the new normal might dictate, and then we are thrown into an area of limited service once again. There are some changes to observe and to self implement by our guests. Signs are spread around to help everyone so please help us to help you to keep safe and enjoy our hospitality.
New menus and new service practices are in place and this will be the norm for the foreseeable future.
However, when we are allowed we will be more than ready to resume from where we left off.
From December the 30th we will be open to receive guests and we are able to offer a bed and breakfast service only.
We have taken the opportunity to remove some of our tables in the restaurant and have framed Perspex screens between tables to allow for safer eating and relaxation for our guests. It will seem rather alien to anyone who knows us but over time I’m sure it will be seen as quite acceptable and of course, as we are allowed, the screens would be removed and normal service resumed…………. happy days 🙂
Eat Out To Help Out was amazing with the buzz and emotion of friends old and new visiting and allowing us to offer our hospitality and touches of being spoilt once again in our lovely hotel. The response was quite amazing and a huge thank you to everyone for trusting us to look after you and a huge thank you to all of our staff for staying with us over the last troubled months and being part of the Cotford family now and going forward….
Eat out to help out and beyond….
In view of the success of Eat Out To Help Out, we are now finding ourselves busier than of past times and with the new restaurant layout and the new PPE fixtures in place, confidence is high with Dinner tables being taken up throughout the week, Afternoon Teas and Sunday lunches more than ever..
Please phone the hotel as normal to make your booking and we very much look forward to seeing you in the near future
We are now also in the position where we are able to offer a full hotel accommodation service with an option to eat in your rooms rather than the restaurant if you prefer.. We can offer a bed and breakfast package to including a contact-free Continental breakfast tray outside the room for your enjoyment if you prefer this to a restaurant breakfast, in the privacy of your hotel room.
The public areas of the hotel, being the lounge, the bar, the restaurant, and all the bedrooms have been sanitised and refreshed with your comfort in mind and look amazing 🙂
Mothering Sunday takeaway lunch and Amazing Afternoon Teas……..
We are offering the chance for our lovely friends/guests/customers to order for takeaway only, an amazing family Sunday lunch for Mothering Sunday as well as afternoon tea for Sunday the 14th of March. The menus are priced to reflect the various courses and represent amazing value and quality for one of the years more important celebrations.
Menus are only available by e-mailing the hotel or by phone when all will be explained and details will be taken.
The very best of health to you all, your families and friends and over the coming days, weeks and months , we warmly look forward to seeing you all once more,
