4 – Guest Bedrooms and Shared Facilities

Doorway opening and closing

  • All doors are manually opened and hinged.
  • The outer front door has a very gentle closing action, through use of rising butt hinges.
  • The inner front door, guest bedrooms and all internal fire doors now all have tension door closers to comply with fire regulations.
  • Both the inner front door, the ‘Easy Access’ room door and the ‘Family Accessible’ room doors have a ‘Dorgard’ door stop fitted, as does the fire door in the upstairs corridor.
  • If the smoke alarm activates, the ‘Dorgard’ releases the door, allowing it to close.

Room Keys

Additional keys are available, as is a key holder available to help overcome dexterity issues.

Guests have a key to their bedroom that also unlock the front door and the French doors from the lounge / breakfast room to the rear garden. Room numbers are etched into the key tags, as is the B&B emergency contact number.

Room / front door keys are retained by guests during the length of their stay thereby enabling them to have access at all times to shared facilities.

No Smoking

A no smoking policy is enforced.   Any guest found smoking will be asked to leave immediately, with no refund and an additional £200 charge levied to clean the room and all linen.
