**IMPORTANT CUSTOMER NOTICE** It is with our deepest regret after much debate and discussion that we have decided due to the disruption caused by the Covid-19 virus that we feel the best option for us is to keep our doors closed this year and instead will look forward to reopening next April to coincide with the 125th anniversary of the hotel.
This is not a desicion we have taken lightly but with most of the season already lost this year it puts us in the uncomfortable financial "three winter" situation so it is not in our best interests to reopen during what are already very uncertain times.
The future of the hotel, the safety of our customers and our staff is not something we feel we should be taking any unnecessary risks with at the moment and for now all we can do is say a massive thank you all our customers for their loyal custom and to our staff who have given us their time and commitment since we opened last August.
We are hopeful and confident that next year we can begin our journey again after this unexpected false start. We look forward to welcoming you back and to reconnecting with our suppliers. We wish the best of luck to all the businesses reopening their doors over the coming months and their continued success. Best wishes from all the staff at The Stones and we'll see you again in 2021.
