Minimising Risks

To minimise the risks of Covid-19 to you and our staff when you visit Belvedere, we have put in place temporary procedures. It is essential that everyone adheres to these. Either you or we could become infected at any time, yet not realise it.

  • Before travelling to Arran, if you feel unwell or suspect you may have come into contact with the virus, please cancel your booking. We will not charge you for cancelling at short notice due to suspected Covid-19.
  • We know it sounds unfriendly, but we will keep our distance, asking you to check yourself in. We will of course be on hand and responsive to messaging.
  • Because of our extensive deep-cleaning routines, we will ask you to check in after 4pm and check out promptly no later than 10am.
  • When checking out we will ask you to strip your beds and put all linen and towels into bags provided. We will also ask you to tie up the bags in your waste bins.
  • In the Guest House we will ask you to use the hand sanitiser we provide before touching any surfaces.
  • If you wish us to clean and make up your room during your stay, we will ask you to vacate it from 10am to 2pm.
  • In the Guest House, continental breakfast will be left at your bedroom door to be consumed in your room. You will be welcome to use the dining room during the day to consume food you bring in and of course you can relax in the guest lounge.
  • Please adhere to social distancing and wear a face covering in the proximity of other guests and our staff.
  • Finally, if you feel unwell during your stay, please let us know immediately. There is a Covid-19 testing facility close by and we will advise you of isolation procedures.
  • Do take out travel insurance with Covid cover. Click here for an example.

...and here’s a link to more general advice about travelling and obtaining suitable cover:

Your bedding includes additional protective layers and is washed at higher temperatures. Curtains and soft furnishings are steam-cleaned between each guests. All surfaces are sterilised.

If you have any concerns, do please let us know, when we will do all we can to keep you safe to enjoy your stay with us. Thank you for your cooperation.

About Belvedere

Belvedere was built in 1920 by a retiring sea captain, who brought back South American mahogany as ship’s ballast, from which the doors and skirtings are made.

Visitors have been coming to Belvedere ever since, some returning over many years.

It is important that you understand the difference between a hotel and a guest house. A hotel may employ additional staff to provide concierge and valet services. A guest house does not. Here, you are staying in someone’s home, as their guest. We ask you to respect this distinction.
