Safety measures at Glendon in response to COVID-19 virus

Updated 12th March 2020

We would like to reassure our guests that we are taking every precaution to ensure our guests’ health and wellbeing whilst they are staying with us at Glendon Bed and Breakfast.

  • Previously both owners of Glendon, worked as nurses and we therefore have good knowledge of measures to avoid cross-contamination. This knowledge informs the measures we are taking to ensure all our guests can be reassured that maintaining a safe environment is our absolute priority.
  • We review the advice from Public Health England/NHS daily to identify any additional steps we can take to mitigate risk further.
  • The owner is always in the kitchen during breakfast and during the morning to ensure that procedures for avoiding cross-contamination are strictly followed.
  • All food items on the buffet table are covered and cutlery is changed regularly to avoid cross-contamination.
  • All hot food is cooked and served to order, again reducing the potential for cross-contamination.
  • All guests are seated at individual dining tables and there is at least 1m space between tables.
  • At Glendon we have two staff members who are continuously supervised to maintain hygiene standards. Being able to maintain high standards of cleanliness ensures the potential for cross-contamination is minimised.
  • As part of the daily cleaning routine every room is cleaned and bathrooms disinfected with particular attention to high-touch surfaces.
  • All public door handles/surfaces likely to be touched are sprayed with disinfectant spray twice daily.
  • Glendon is a large three storey property and we accommodate a maximum of 12 guests. The location of rooms and spaces available for guests avoids large members of people in confined areas, again minimising the potential for cross-contamination.
  • All guests with a booking at Glendon provide their address details. This allows us to ensure we are aware of any specific advice related to guests travelling into the UK from other countries and take any required action based on guidance from Public Health England.

If you have any concerns or questions please get in touch and we look forward to welcoming you at Glendon Bed and Breakfast

  One of the best if not the best guest house I have stayed in rooms were spotlessly clean, location was brilliant, and the owner went the extra mile to make sure everything was ok, booked again for later in the year and the lemon drizzle cake was to die for and a lovely touch

  This is such a lovely place to stay - definitely one of the best guest houses I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting. My room was gorgeous and had all the essentials, plus lots of added extras. Having a decent sized fridge in there was a great touch! And I loved my evenings sitting in the guest lounge with a glass of complementary port! Breakfast was delicious and Damien and Adrian are so lovely, their attention to detail and friendly service is what makes this place so special. I stayed here as I was attending a local course, but I’m already planning to come back for a leisure stay with my husband to show him how wonderful this place is.

  We initially were led to this establishment as it has an electric car charging point (free to use) but Glendon House proved to be a real find for us. The room was both stylish and very comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble. For example, we were welcomed with a pot of green tea and most delicious cake and lovely gluten free alternative. In fact we will officially award them the best gluten-free breakfast ever, in our opinion!
