What if I have a positive Covid-19 diagnosis?

If you have a positive Covid-19 diagnosis, you must return home immediately, where practical to do so.

Again, you will be liable for this cost in all but exceptional circumstances. Extending your stay due to illness
This will have consequences in terms of us having to cancel or rearrange bookings (some of which may be at a higher rate due to the time of year). However, it may be able to extend your stay at a cost which is no higher than the standard rate for that period. Please contact Glasney Reception for further details.

What time is check in and check out?

Check in time is 4pm onwards. Check out by 10am.
