England's tier system: What you can do in tiers 1, 2 and 3 from December 2

Everyone is allowed to travel in the UK this Christmas, specifically between Wednesday 23 and Sunday 27 December 2020.

Hamilton Hall is therefore CLOSED until December 23rd when we reopen in time for Christmas.

The government confirmed that over Christmas some social restrictions will be relaxed, but the main message is: 'Wherever possible people should avoid travelling and minimise social contact.'


Masks are to be worn within the hotel at all times by customers and staff alike - unless social distancing can be adhered to.

All surfaces are double sterilized twice daily.

See bottom of page for how Hamilton Hall has read this.

John Bellamy Comments:

I have spent hours going through the government and local council web sites checking out what is to happen after December 2nd concerning hotels taking bookings for the Festive Season and I am cross eyed after spending so long reading and surfing and scrolling and trying to figure things out. It has not been easy.

I



I truly value the work the government - civil service and councils have put it as the work must be horrendous and the overtime earned must be huge - and EVERY SINGLE GOVERNMENT ON THE PLANET WILL FUCK IT UP ONE WAY OR THE OTHER - as there is no precedence - nothing to fall back on, no plan or action planned and no idea where to go next, especially is people keep misbehaving and going without masks, meeting in large groups and defying what has been suggested and made law - and it is usually the innocent who die while the guilty live on regardless and spread it further through their own selfish attitude and denial that anything is actually happening. Fake News is a joke and sometimes - especially when this is a global thing and not just some small local conspiracy between business and local government - we need to pay attention and stop acting like Karens or spoiled brats misbehaving because you think you can.


Those people I want to slap - hard.


So December 23rd we re open in time to welcome guests for Christmas and New Year.
