COVID-19 (Coronavirus) UPDATE | 24th March 2020


Farewell for now…

Like you, we find ourselves in uncharted waters. Our absolute priority is the health and well-being of our guests and our team and we take our responsibility to support HM Government’s advice very seriously.

We feel it is our duty to be a part of the solution in stopping the spread of this virus. It is with a heavy heart that we have therefore made the decision to temporarily close the Beadnell Towers from Saturday 21st March 2020. This closure includes our restaurant, bar and hotel bedrooms.

We are taking each day as it comes and will open again as soon as we can. This will be reviewed regularly in line with HM Government advice.

We will continue to keep you updated by email, through our website and via our social media platforms.

If you have any questions or need to discuss anything at all, please do contact our team. They can be reached every day from 9am to 6pm, but please be patient with us as we are currently very, very busy.

In closing, we wanted to say thank you to all of you that have been kind enough to send us well wishes. Your heartfelt messages of support have spurred us all on throughout what continues to be a challenge for all of us. Thank you, we certainly appreciate it.

Sending all good wishes and healthy regards to you all,

Sincerely yours,

Neil Slade

Group General Manager
