Although the government has lifted Covid restrictions in England, the virus is circulating. We want to ensure you enjoy a safe stay at Brunswick House. So here's some information about the precautions we are taking to limit the spread of Covid 19 and any other nasty bugs and viruses.

Following the government announcement to lift Covid Restrictions in England from 19th July 2021, here's an update to our guest information.

If you want any more detail, feel free to click through to see our COVID risk assessment and cleaning protocols. And if you have any questions, don't hesitate to give me a call or email hello@brunswickhouseteignmouth.co.uk

STAFF

I am up to date with all my Covid vaccinations, as are all eligible members of my family.

CHECK IN / CHECK OUT

Please don't travel to us if you or any of your party experience any COVID symptoms such as a persistent cough, temperature or loss of taste or smell. We would much prefer that you cancel and rearrange than risk spreading the virus. Although there is no longer a legal requirement to self-isolate, you are still advised to stay home and avoid contact with other people.

If you develop symptoms while you are staying with us, please let me know immediately. This is so I can take additional measures to ensure the safety of my family and other guests. Although you are not required to return home or to self-isolate, it is still recommended practice.

I highly recommend that you take out travel insurance that covers Covid as well as other illnesses so that you can recoup any potential losses due to cancellation or needing to cut short your stay.

As a small hospitality business, I have been hit hard by the pandemic and unfortunately cannot afford to issue refunds due to known risks.

On arrival, please use the hand sanitiser at the front door - and do keep on using it whenever you enter or exit the premises. Hand sanitiser is also available as you enter the Breakfast Room and in each of our guest bedrooms.

Keys are sanitised prior to being given to you and when they are returned at the end of your stay. Pens used for check in are also sanitised before and after each use.

MASKS

Although you will no longer be required to wear a mask, you are welcome to wear one when visiting. I will also continue to wear a mask while serving breakfast and at check in and check out. However, I may not always wear a mask as I go about my daily business within the premises.

CLEANING

We are continually revising our cleaning protocols to conform with government guidance (and quite often we do a lot more!). Areas that are frequently touched, like door handles, are regularly sanitised throughout the day.

Housekeeping is now an optional service. If you are comfortable with me entering your room on a daily basis for a quick wipe round and bedmake, I will happily do so. You will be required to vacate the room while cleaning takes place. However, I am also happy to leave you be during your stay. And you can request any refills or replacement towels and bedding be left outside your door.

BREAKFAST

Although legal regulations relating to distancing between tables will be lifted, our spacious breakfast room means we can continue to ensure guest tables are spread out. In addition, the breakfast room window will be open throughout the breakfast service to ensure a flow of fresh air.

As well as hot breakfasts, cooked to order and served to your table, we also provide a cold breakfast buffet. If you would prefer that cold items such as cereal, fresh fruit salad, yoghurt and pastries, are brought to your table, just let us know.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

Please make use of the hand sanitiser provided at the front door and the entrance to the breakfast room and in your bedroom. And please wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds.

Feel free to open your bedroom windows for added ventilation. And on departure, please leave your window as wide open as you can so we can air the room before we go in to clean.

Before you arrive, you can ensure your vaccinations are up to date to reduce your risk of contracting and spreading the virus.
