CORONA VIRUS & SOCIAL DISTANCING
AFTER WE RE OPEN
ON FIRST ENTRY INTO HAMILTON HALL.
PLEASE ADHERE TO SOCIAL DISTANCING
WHERE POSSIBLE THROUGHOUT THE VENUE
If you cough, sneeze or have the sniffles, then we expect to see you use a tissue and dispose of in the proper manner. BE RESPONSIBLE.
We will check your Body Temperature with an Ear Thermometer on entry and at various times during your stay. This is for everyone’s protection.
Normal : 36.5 – 37.5 °C – ( 97.7 – 99.5 °F )
Fever: 37.5 – 38.3 °C – ( 99.5 – 100.9 °F )
Please respect our right to do this.
If you are found to have a temperature, which you will probably know before coming here, your custom will be refused, you will be suggested to go home and go into 14 Quarantine and no refund offered. If we have to isolate you here for 14 days or more – we will allow a private room with facilities, provide BB&EM with a light lunch – and charge £300 per 7 days.
VERY REASONABLE UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES.
WE WILL STRICTLY ADHERE TO THIS – AFTER MONTHS IN LOCKDOWN AND REMAINING SAFE, WE EXPECT YOU TO USE YOUR COMMON SENSE AND ANYONE DEEMED TO BE IRRESPONSIBLE OR WHO MAY SEEM TO BE DELIBERATELY FLOUTING GUIDELINES & POSSIBLY INFECTING OTHERS, WE WILL REPORT TO THE AUTHORITIES. PERIOD.
SOCIAL & SEXUAL CONTACT : – If done sensibly & carefully, is acceptable and expected and between consenting adults. YOU KNOW THE RISKS. PLAY SAFE – and while we have already been through our own AIDS pandemic 35 years ago, do not get caught out this time. ( Now wouldn’t that be ironic ??? …)
We have Hand Gels & Anti Bacterial Soaps, Tissues and Disposable Gloves available. Please also bring your own – as we are not here to provide you with masks etc. Please do not take ours.

GROUND COFFEE - £2 single / £4 Double
CORKAGE We now charge £3 corkage if you wish to bring your own wine into the building. We supply the glasses, fridge to chill it and even wash up your glasses after.
TAKE OUT - If you order 'Take out' from one of the local take-aways cafes and wish to eat it here, we do now charge £3 for using our facilities and where we offer the plate etc. refreshments and condiments / ketchup etc. This use to be free but with our prices now HALF PRICE on 2019 prices - and where we are trying to stay afloat, our very generous and kindly nature in offering so much for free - comes to an end and like most venues who charge for every little thing, we now charge for some items detailed.
TEAS @ INSTANT COFFEE - 50 different teas & cold drinks - Freely available as before 24/7
BOTTLED WATER: We no longer offer free bottled water. Chilled Dorset Tap Water is available in the fridge in the Dining Area.
NAKED MISTAKES: Anyone leaving a little signature on towels, bedding or furniture will be charged £10 - £50 for cleaning - depending what is in need of laundry. Usually this is free but no longer. If you leave a skid mark, we will know, and you will be charged. ( It happens, no problem, we are older and less ‘in control.’ Please just be honest with us.)
WE OFFER THIS HALF PRICE DEAL because we appreciate many have lost their jobs, business' and income and desperately need a short holiday / weekend away – and we need to keep Hamilton Hall alive and not close down like thousands of other venues. It’s up to you. We hear SO MUCH about how important Hamilton Hall is and we rely on you to help keep us open and not financially sink.
Thanks for your appreciation and understanding.
