Breakfast is served in a wicker basket outside your room in the time slot you request. When you have finished your breakfast, please leave the napkins, crockery, cutlery etc in the basket and place out on the landing to be collected.

We would ask that you remain flexible regarding housekeeping and we will not be servicing your room during your stay but do let us know if you need any replacement tea/coffee sachets etc. Also please inform us if you have any spillages or need any other towels etc and we will deal with that when you are out of the room.
