We are Back!

From June 1st we are back to trading 7 days a week. Keeping our staff & guests safe is our top priority. Social distancing laws of 1.5m are still in place & need to be adhered too. All guests must be seated in the Hotel, including children. It is a condition of entry that guests are to supply name & contact details. Guests will also be required to use hand sanitizer upon entry to the Hotel. Please view our Covid Safe Conditions of Entry here. We need YOUR HELP in following these guidelines, so that we can continue to serve the community. Thank you!
