What we will be doing to help you enjoy a safe and comfortable stay

As of Monday 19th July, we have all been given a little bit more freedom from the restrictions we have had to endure fo rthe last year or so. Here at The Old New Inn, we're just going to bide our time a little longer as the procedures we have had in place seem to have worked for everyone and we'd like t o ensure that all our guests continue to feel safe and confident when they stay with us. Therefore we will keep on doing what we've been doing and would ask that you continue to help us help those, including some of our younger team members who have yet to get fully jabbed, who still need a little reassurance in these different times.

We can guarantee a warm welcome, although forgive us if we don’t shake your hand! To ensure that we can continue to achieve our extremely high room cleaning standards, we will only be able to welcome you from 3.00pm each afternoon, when you will be able to pick up your keys (freshly sanitised) from the reception desk. We are continuing to ask people to wear masks when they enter the building and as they move around getting to and fom their room.

On check-in, you will be asked to select a time for breakfast (probably not high on your list at check in, but we are aiming to be able to comfortably accommodate everyone in our airy breakfast room each morning). You will also be asked to pre-order your breakfast before retiring each evening – we are still sourcing as much of our breakfast menu as locally as we can, supporting producers who have, like us, been working hard, planning for a return to some form of normality.

In order to minimise contact (how we do dislike that notion in our hospitality business!) you will have the option to decline our room cleaning service during your stay, but if you need a top up of tea, coffee, or fresh milk, fairtrade biscuits or fairtrade toiletries, just ask at breakfast and we can provide for you. If you need a change of towels, leave them outside your room in the bag provided, and we will replace them.

Many of our colleagues in the village will be offering food at lunch and dinner times although we would recommend booking your preferred time for any meals, well in advance of your stay.

There will be hand sanitiser and wipes freely available during your stay, and we hope that the light touches we have described will help you have a lovely time with us.
