In the COVID-19 Recovery days

We know you want to have a holiday or break.

We understand you have concerns about where to book your accommodation for a safe stay.

We want to show you the arrangements we have put in place to help reduce risks to Guests and allow your Hosts to live and work safely now we can open our doors to you again.

This information is “fluid” and will change as the situation changes, along with changes made by the Scottish and UK Governments

Last updated 31st July 2020

Torlundy House has been accredited as “Good to Go”
in accordance with the requirements of VisitScotland and the other UK Tourist Boards for re-opening to B&B Guests

Now that Hospitality is permitted to “open it’s doors” to guests again we are making temporary changes to the way we accept reservations and provide the Bed & Breakfast experience at Torlundy House. We are making changes in an effort to minimise risk and comply with any social  distancing and health restrictions we must adhere to in the future while COVID-19 remains a worldwide risk.

Our priority is the safety of our guests, any staff we employ and ourselves.

Our first line of defence for all of us is to keep COVID-19 out of Torlundy House.

Here we tell you what the main changes are and link you to our “Download” page on this website so you can view and download the documentation.

We hope you will find this useful, but we would like to reassure you that if you are unsure of any part of the documentation and require clarification we are more than happy to assist.

We want you to feel confident to come and stay at Torlundy House and enjoy a holiday on our area.

All of the documentation is “living”, meaning that it will be updated as required.

Temporary changes to Reservation Terms and Conditions

Here we tell you about the temporary modifications and additions to our Reservation Terms and Conditions. There is not enough space on the automatic reservation confirmation sent when you place a reservation, however the T&Cs on that are presented to you before you finalise your reservation (and you have to “tick” a box to agree them) still apply, we are just making them better and more flexible for you.

Temporary changes to Check In and Check Out Procedures

Modifications to our Check In and Check Out procedures have been made necessary to comply with distancing, ensure that COVID-19 is kept out of Torlundy House and also reduced contact points for guests. For example we may offer Digital Registration. There will also be requirements for temperature taking (contactless) and additional COVID related health checks and Track & Chase information.

Temporary changes to Breakfast and other Food arrangements

We have had to adapt our breakfast seating and food provision / service arrangements to allow for distancing, removal of buffet facilities and enhanced food hygiene, as well as make provision for guests to bring Take Away food back to to Torlundy House if they have not been able to secure a reservation at a local restaurant, many of which will be operating at reduced capacity themselves.
