Before opening, we produced our COVID-19 Secure Policy

after conducting a Risk Assessment which you can read in full here.

In case you haven’t got time to read the full policy above, to summarise in a few sentences, we’re keeping you and us safe by all keeping at least 1m apart, washing our hands, wearing a face mask, and doing extra cleaning. 
 

Some things have had to be changed like our buffet at breakfast is now served from behind the scenes and we can’t clean your room daily.  If you’re happy with our policy then great, get booking, but if you’d prefer to wait until next year then that's fine too.  For those who already have a booking, we’ll happily move it if we need to, free of charge.

In June 2020, we were proud to announce that The 25 has been awarded the Safe Clean and Legal certification from Quality in Tourism following a thorough inspection which has been updated to include COVID-19 cleaning protocols.  We have also been deemed "Good to Go" by Visit England, "Covid-19 Confident" by The AA and met the World Travel & Tourism Council's Safe Travels requirements.

Our full policy can be viewed in the link further up the page or here. It explains in detail all the things we are doing to keep both you and us safe. Please read it in full before making a booking.




How do I know it's safe to stay with you?


As well as completing a risk assessment as required by law, we have produced a very detailed COVID-19 Secure Policy (see link further up the page). Andy helped compile the guidance for Visit Devon, and his Secure Policy was used by Visit County Durham. In addition, we have paid for independent assessors to visit us and inspect the building and our policies and are proud to have achieved the Quality in Tourism Safe, Clean and Legal certification. We have also been awarded "Good to Go" by Visit England, the official tourism body, and the World Travel and Tourism Council have given us the "Safe Travels" accreditation.
