The Visit Britain / Visit England industry standard & consumer mark

COVID-19 FAQs

What is your cleaning procedure?


The well-being of our guests is always at the forefront of our minds and, following the Coronavirus outbreak, this has become even more important. We are following all up to date environmental health department guidelines when cleaning and preparing the accommodation and have joined the Visit Britain 'Stay Safe' charter mark campaign. The Escape to St Ives housekeeping team have a cleaning regime in line with government guidelines, which will mean changeovers will now take longer. What this means to you is that check-in times will be later and check-out earlier. Escape to St Ives COVID-19 page The latest Government information can be found on the Public Health England COVID-19 website.




Is our booking still in place?


Yes, from July we will be welcoming guests back to beautiful St Ives. As long as you are healthy and able to safely travel at this time, it will be cleaned and prepared ready for your arrival as planned.




Are cafes, pubs and restaurants open?


New Covid-19 secure guidance for the hospitality sector means pubs and restaurants will be able to reopen in England from 4 July, provided they meet government criteria for keeping staff and customers as safe as possible.

This is obviously a very fluid situation so we advise you to call ahead to avoid disappointment.

What if I develop symptoms during my holiday?


You can check your symptoms with the NHS 111 online ' Check your symptoms' website As a reminder, the main symptoms are:

  • high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
Most people with coronavirus have at least one of these symptoms. If you develop symptoms during your stay please alert us on 07741 499395. We are sorry but in order to protect our staff and other guests, you will not be able to self isolate at Lamorna
