Covid 19 Policy
Craigard House Hotel observes all rules and regulations relating to Covid 19, and expects the same of guests. Masks must be worn in all public areas, except when sitting at table. In line with Government restrictions, we are only open at present for Key Workers and Emergency Accommodation. Guests not resident in the hotel are unfortunately not permitted. Please follow the latest news for updates. We will need your contact details for the Test and Protect System. We have implemented a stringent cleaning regime, for your and our safety, following established procedures. We have received the 'We're Good to Go' mark, to show that we have worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and have a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing. We offer dinner and breakfast, or breakfast to go. Although some changes have been made within the hotel, to comply with requirements, your safety and comfort is our objective, and we will do our best to achieve this. We look forward to welcoming you.
Reservation Policy – Accommodation
All reservations must be confirmed by the provision of valid credit card details to guarantee the booking. Payment will be debited at the time of arrival., or on booking should you prefer. Invoice payments are available for those with an account. Group bookings and long-term bookings may be subject to a deposit, agreed in advance.
Cancellation Policy - Accommodation
Should it be necessary for a booking to be cancelled, our cancellation policy for individual bookings is that a 100% charge of the room rate will be made, if the reservation is cancelled after 09:00, within seven days of the arrival date, except where that cancellation is a result of Government Covid 19 requirement, in which case we would not charge.
For larger groups, long-term bookings, or bookings made months in advance, a separate cancellation policy will be made, and a non-refundable deposit may be requested. This will be agreed at the time of booking.
Craigard House Hotel is flexible in offering accommodation as and when required. While the standard check in time is from 2.30 pm, we recognise that many people will require an early or late arrival. For early arrivals, if the room is not yet ready, we will take luggage to the room and ensure that this room is serviced as a priority.
For late arrivals, we would appreciate if you could phone ahead +44 1586 554242 to give an indication of your arrival time. Should dinner be required, we will make every effort to keep the Restaurant open for you – or alternatively provide an agreed meal upon arrival. (Standard Dinner Service is 6.30 – 9pm, but during Covid 19 Lockdown 6.30-8pm).
Standard check out time is 11:00, by which time all guest rooms should be vacated. In exceptional circumstances, please discuss later departure with Lori or Roger. Early check outs (and breakfasts) can be accommodated, or perhaps a packed ‘lunch’ instead of breakfast is more suitable? Please just ask. Sometimes it may be more convenient to check out financially the evening before departure. Again we are flexible in this respect.
In line with legislation, Craigard House Hotel's public areas are strictly no smoking areas. We would request that guests please respect this policy in all hotel bedrooms, as the Craigard House Hotel is a smoke-free zone. The smoke alarm system is extremely sensitive.
Please check with us first before bringing a pet. Craigard House Hotel welcomes well-behaved pets at no charge, but we do reserve the right to make a charge if necessary. In light of recent events, cats must not be left unsupervised in rooms, except in a container! Please – no snakes or creepy crawlies!!!
