COVID 19 Information
When the lockdown is relaxed we will enact a number of Health and Safety measures which are designed to keep you, our guests and ourselves safe whilst staying with us here at the Old Forge.
In general we will aim to keep our contact with you, and your contact with other guests to a minimum as we can, and as a guidance we will be placing a Covid19 information letter in all guests rooms upon your arrival. In addition to this it will explain our cleaning policy, and new breakfast policy.
We look forward to welcoming you again at The Old Forge, and will happily show you your room whilst maintaining a safe distance and in order to reassure and keep contact to a minimum, we will be introducing a room service option.
The world is a very different place since the Coronavirus pandemic so we wanted to reassure you that you can have confidence when booking to stay with us. We would like to ensure you that now more than ever the health and safety of our guests is paramount.
We pride ourselves in our high levels of cleanliness, and as a family run business, we are the only two hosts who will have contact with you, from a safe distance. In addition to this our 2 wonderful cleaning ladies who have been with us for years work to a high standard. They will be practising additional deep cleaning methods, and regularly ensuring the high “touch areas” such as light switches and door knobs will be sanitised.
No guest glassware, crockery or cutlery is hand washed – it all goes through the dishwasher and all of the linen is professionally laundered.
We have achieved a 5 Star rating for Food Hygiene from the environmental health. We have also achieved 4 Star status with Visit England and Trip Advisor who also assess cleaning standards and has never graded us less than full marks.
All of our suppliers are carefully vetted and chosen by us, and have also achieved standards of quality and cleanliness.
In the meantime, please stay alert and stay safe. We very much look forward to welcoming you back to The Old Forge and using our time effectively by painting, decorating, gardening, and generally making sure the place will be even more fabulous than before when you return.
