Important Information to All Customers in Response to COVID-19 Outbreak


Farnley Tower Guesthouse Policy

Dear Valued Guest,


We are currently closed from Thursday 26th March 2020 to 13th April 2020 after following the UK Government guidelines. 
In this time of uncertainty with the progression of the COVID-19 outbreak globally, we are reaching out to You and Our staff's safety and comfort which remain our highest priority at Farnley Tower Guesthouse and Holi and Bhang Restaurant and Bar. 

Our thoughts are with those who are affected by this virus and those who are caring for them.
We Clean. We Care. We Welcome.

We hope to reopen shortly.

We have taken these steps at our premises for the safety of our guests and employees. This is paramount to us.

We take the utmost care to ensure every stay with us is safe, clean and comfortable.
We clean to ensure safety and comfort for our guests. Our measures include:
•    Rigorous cleaning and sanitisation of guest rooms.
•    Frequent sanitisation of high-contact points, such as door handles, reception counters, bathrooms, dining areas and kitchens.
•    Regular training of our employees ensuring proper hand hygiene and awareness of COVID-19. This is vital to help combat the spread of viruses and the health of our employees and guests.

We care for our guests and employees by introducing additional measures to safeguard their wellbeing. Our employees have been briefed on the guidelines provided by the World Health Organization and local health authorities. They are ready to render assistance to any guest that may feel unwell.

We conduct daily meetings with our employees to review any relevant situation.

We welcome our guests with the same warmth and hospitality we have always done. While the COVID-19 outbreak is a precipitously changing and fluid situation, we are committed to keeping you informed and to care for you as a valued guest.
