Stay at Millbrook safely during COVID-19

Although lockdown restrictions were removed on the 19th of July 2021, the hospitality industry was advised to continue to use it’s judgement based on personal settings.

We have decided that we will continue with our ‘COVID Safe’ practices until face masks and social distancing rules are no longer a requirement and that we feel it is safe and appropriate for Us and our guests to al return to the Breakfast Room for the traditional breakfast service.

This means the ‘Safer Breakfast’ service will continue, hence a full traditional English breakfast is not being served. Hand sanitiser is available at all times. We continue to ask guests to wear their masks whilst walking through the communal areas.

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.


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. You can also read it by clicking the button below.

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.

We continue to 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.
