Safety of our Guests

Post Office House Bed and Breakfast Covid Safety Update

Post Office House is a Covid-safe bed and breakfast, as recognised by the AA Covid-Confident and Sawdays `Clean and Safe’ Charter. Due to the pandemic, some of our previous services and offerings may not be available or may have been reduced, where we have had to make changes, this has been done with the safety of everyone in mind.  We do ask for your patience and understanding but, as always, we will be on hand to assist in any way we can.

We have a risk assessment in place of every aspect of our bed and breakfast, the processes, together with appropriate measures, controls and stringent cleaning to minimise the spread of Covid-19.  Please refer to our points below as to current procedures we have in place.

  • Face coverings: We would still prefer if guests could wear a face covering in public/shared areas of our bed and breakfast, this is for the continued safety of all our guests and ourselves. Post Office House is a Grade II Listed building with a single guest entrance and two-way staircase, therefore guests need to be aware that we are unable to provide a ‘one-way system’ through the building and to the guest rooms.

  • We will continue to wear masks when checking guests in and during breakfast service.  Whilst they are no longer mandatory, we are still adhering to safety for both our guests and ourselves.

  • All key areas of Post Office House will continue to sanitised including door handles, light switches and regular touch points.

  • We ask that guests choose breakfast times from either 8 am or 9 am (if we have six guests), as there are only two tables in our Dining Room. If we have a group of four together, then we are able to be slightly more flexible with breakfast times as we do not need to clean and re-lay a third table sitting.  This procedure will continue for the foreseeable future.

  • All guest rooms will be deep cleaned and sanitised (on room turnaround less than 72 hours), using high quality cleaners and disinfectants including disinfectant wipes which are NHS Approved.

  • We will continue to monitor ourselves and any symptoms associated with Covid-19. If this is the case, we will have no alternative but to self-isolate for 5 days.  Post Office House is run solely by Simon and Claire with no staff, therefore we would contact guests to cancel their bookings.  If we have any guests staying with us and have to leave half-way through their stay, we will only charge for the actual nights stayed with us.

The above list is not exhaustive and will continue to review and implement any necessary procedures and practices for our industry as instructed by the Government. We ask that all guests adhere and respect the current Covid-19 guidelines and any subsequent amendments. Please continue to be patient during these times and if you have any concerns or questions either prior to or during your stay, then please ask us.

We will continue to deliver our excellent hospitality and service, synonymous with Post Office House.
