Corona virus statement
To all of our lovely guests and friends,
Although we are facing terribly difficult times we must adapt as it progresses.Only recently, we launched a multi-faceted takeaway service which had amazing initial success, however, it involved our staff having to be working side-by-side in an enclosed environment which goes against the health advice issued by the government so we felt it prudent to suspend this until we felt that no member of staff was at risk. We will continually update where we can on social media and a new page on our web site will be on-line for the duration of this extraordinary situation so that we may hopefully present a clear picture to you all of our abilities and intentions.
Accommodation and Restaurant to re-open in early July?
This is the instruction that we have been given by the government and is looking likely that the 4th phase of businesses opening, which would apply to restaurants and hotels could well take place then and unlikely, not before. If this is so, it is incredibly disappointing but to apply caution is better than to open and only be forced to close moments later due to a second wave of this awful virus and its implications.
However, when we are allowed we will be more than ready to resume from where we left off. We will be ready to open our doors for the public in general and we would expect to offer a full service coupled with a takeaway service of all of our menus including our a la carte menus, afternoon teas and Sunday lunch.
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 dining 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 🙂
Fondest wishes and the best of health to you all, your families and friends from Barbara and Chris xx
We are already in a situation where we are able to offer “contact-free” accommodation to front-line workers, engineers etc.. We can offer a bed and breakfast package to including a contact-free Continental breakfast tray outside the room for your enjoyment in the privacy of your hotel room.
The public areas of the lounge, the bar and restaurant in the hotel are not available at this point in time, however, if there’s anything we can do to help with accommodation for those personnel most needed please don’t hesitate to contact us..
Please contact us by phone or e-mail and if we are able to help, then we will.
Our hearts and fondest wishes go out to you all and we request that once the world returns to normal, we are able to once again, look forward to a welcoming smile, a friendly handshake, embrace where it is the norm, be warm to each other and pick up where we left off.
For now from Chris, Barbara and all the staff here at The Cotford Hotel and L’amuse bouche Restaurant, Great Malvern,
its still hibernation time but we are gently awakening to the reality that we will be allowed to wake up and re-build what is a somewhat fragmented routine of looking after our lovely friends and guests……zzzzzzz Happy days ahead 🙂
