Stay at Millbrook safely during COVID-19

We are aware that people have varying levels of concerns and needs regarding health and safety during this time. We hope that restrictions are fully lifted from the 21st of June and do not return. However, we have decided to continue our 2021 service in a similar manner to 2020, particularly in regard to breakfast.

This is a summary of what we have in place from arrival to departure.

Millbrook Guest House is currently closed and will reopen as soon as we are able. 

We have been awarded the ‘Visit England We’re Good To Go’ and ‘AA COVID Confident’ safety accreditations. We have taken many steps to ensure we can do so safely, and you can find out more below.

If you are looking for information about deposits and cancellations, then please read our Coronavirus Deposits and Cancellations post here. Until the end of 2021 we are only taking a £5 deposit to give you peace of mind should things change again.


COVID-19 'Stay in Safety' Guide

We have produced a ‘Stay in Safety’ guide for all our guests, copies of this will be emailed to you (if possible) before your arrival and copies will also be available in your rooms for your reference. If you wish to read this beforehand then you can download a PDF copy of our ‘COVID-19 Stay in Safety’ guide here.
As Government guidelines change we will update our practices to ensure that your safety comes first.  We want you to enjoy your stay and we are happy to answer questions and offer advice, so please do not feel we are unapproachable, we will just maintain a safe distance in conversations.

We will always adhere to the current government guidance which can change daily, if you have any doubts or questions then please contact us.

It is still law to wear face masks whilst inside all businesses, so we ask all our guests to wear masks whilst in our hallways and stairwells. You do not need to wear them whilst in your room or whilst seated in the breakfast room.

Local Restrictions / Tiers – We don’t know what the coming months will bring, if either you or Us have to lockdown (whether locally or part of a national lockdown) then we will honour the deposit/cancellation terms of your booking. If we are subject to a local lockdown, we will contact you as soon as possible, giving you a full refund or option to move the booking.

Rule of 6 – We are legally obliged to prevent groups of more than 6 book or congregate within our premises, all these rules are fluid and could change again.
