We’re Good To Go certificate

We are introducing temporary changes to the way we accept reservations and provide the Bed & Breakfast experience at Ashburn House in an effort to minimise risk and comply with any social and health restrictions that we must adhere to in the future, while COVID-19 remains a risk around the world.

Please do not travel if you have symptoms are are feeling unwell. You have a duty of care to yourself and to others.

If you feel you have Covid19 on your holiday you will be asked to return home and check out immediately and contact the NHS no refund will be given.

Changes to Reservation / Booking procedure

  • In the event there is a resurgence of COVID-19 and we are required to close and cancel your reservation there will be no cancellation charges.
  • In the event you cancel your reservation our normal cancellation charges will apply unless you can provide documentation showing that you are prevented from travel e.g. Your home country restricts you leaving, or your carrier (flight, ferry or train) cancels your travel booking due to COVID restrictions beyond our control.

Track and Trace is required by all parties to be completed by completing the NHS Track and trace app via QR Code at the property on arrival.

The government has requested all bookings must complete registration details.

  • Rooms will not be cleaned daily on short stays to protect ourselves and to protect you.We will clean the rooms every other day from the second night stay.If you would prefer us not to clean your room please let us know. Long stays we will turn the room around on day four with fresh bedding. If you don’t want this done on day four please let us know. Anything that you need for your rooms please do ask eg toilet roll, tea and coffee ect.

These additional arrangements could lead to extra time being required to provide our service to you, but this is in all our interests and we ask for your co-operation.

The additional arrangements also increase our costs, and the reduction in rooms occupied impacts on our lively-hood. We hope to get back to normality in the near future.  We can only do this with the co-operation of our guests.
