Dear Guests

We are delighted to confirm that we re-opened on 4th July. We are following all government guidance and have been awarded the Good to Go Award, recognising our commitment to Covid 19 guidelines in implementing social distancing and enhanced cleanliness.

Please find important information about your stay at Link House

General Covid Hygiene 

• Although we do have very high standards of cleanliness , we offer enhanced cleaning and sanitizing of all areas of Link House. If you are unable to socially distance in the corridors  or landings, please can you wear a face mask in line with recent guidance.

• We request that you do not enter if you are displaying any of the Covid 19 symptoms including temperature, cough or loss of taste or smell.

• We have reduced our booking terms to free cancellation up to 1 week prior to arrival for the rest of 2020. 

Check in

• We offer speedy contactless check in with hand sanitizer available.

• We will offer tea and coffee on arrival, however, we now request that this is taken either outside or in your room. 


• All rooms are deep cleaned and aired prior to guests’ arrival and we will continue to clean them daily when guests are not present with all bins being emptied.   

• We have removed excess soft furnishings such as cushions from the beds and will ensure all other items are cleaned thoroughly.

• All bed linen is washed commercially by Shortridge laundry and they have already enhanced their washing procedures.

• Particular attention is paid to the cleaning of all surfaces, and items such as keys, handles, remote controls along with bathrooms.

• The hospitality trays will continue to contain individually wrapped items for your use.


• We have moved our breakfast area into the 2 front rooms with lovely views over the mountains and have ensured that the tables are spread out with a minimum of 2 metres between each.

• There is also the option of using 2 outside tables (weather permitting!) 

• There is also a time slot option to ensure that there are very few guests in either room at any one time. 

• We will also remove all shared buffet items, with guests able to pre-order items from an extended menu including freshly prepared individual fruit salads etc. All cereals will be individually boxed.

• We will also offer a takeway breakfast option of items such as breakfast sandwiches which can also be eaten outside or in your room.
