Covid 19 update

The Old Manse is starting to gear towards reopening, the following is a summary of our thought process so far.

Scotland has started phase 2 of the route out of lock-down, which is being implemented in stages.

We believe that The Old Manse will be able to open during stage three however the Scottish government has to clarify this. On Thursday 18th of June the Scottish first minister stated that she is looking for clarification, from scientist, on the measures needed for pubs and restaurants to re-open.

Our present thinking is that we:-

  • Need to align our reopening with the restaurants in the area.
  • Reduce the number of people we have in the breakfast room to enable social distancing.
  • Change breakfast practice by removing communal items.
  • Have a rigorous cleaning regime of the communal areas.
  • Have a more rigorous cleaning regime of the guest rooms
  • Understand and implement the latest guidance
  • Have clear written guidance for guests and staff
  • Keep our website and facebook page updated with the latest information.

What we don’t know at present: –

  • Dates
  • Fine detail of the guidance
  • Dates when local restaurants will reopen
