Covid 19 Information (updated 21/8/21)
Face coverings are still MANDATORY in public areas in Scotland – this includes inside our guest house.
Most importantly – DO NOT travel to Inglestone House or The Scottish Borders if you suspect or you have Covid 19.
We are both now fully vaccinated and are testing regularly. As an added precaution we are not visiting cafes, restaurants etc to reduce the risk of any close contact.
We have always been scrupulous with our cleaning which has often been commented on by our guests. We now follow an enhanced risk-based approach to cleaning. We continue to use recommended products to ensure the highest possible level of sanitisation.
- Hand sanitising stations are now located in Reception and inside the back entrance. We request that everyone uses them on entering the building and before entering the Dining Room. We also recommend that guests carry their own supply at all times.
- Communal areas of the building will be more frequently sanitised.
- All unnecessary collateral has been removed from bedrooms /Reception to facilitate enhanced cleaning.
- Bedrooms will not be routinely serviced daily in order to facilitate the highest level of protection to everyone.

- A reservation system is in place for breakfast.
