Covid-19 Customer notice


This is not a message we ever wanted to share… 

Tuesday 27 July one of our team tested positive for Covid-19. As a result we have isolated about 90% of our workforce, which in turn has meant we have closed the Coachman’s Bar, Breakwater Brasserie & Secret Garden.

We will remain open for bed & breakfast for our hotel residents only.

We hope to be back to a full complement of staff and
re-open all facilities on Thursday 5 August

We are working our way through all of our accommodation and table bookings and events over the next 10 days and are trying hard to speak with everyone directly.
We are totally devastated & appreciate your understanding.
Christine & Rupert Brendon (Proprietors)
