• Covid-19 in the Lake District

    Terms and Conditions

  • Freedom day - 19th July 2021 

    Freedom day - 19th July 2021

    Freedom day is finally upon us! Whilst we are all very excited for this day Covid-19 is still very prevalent. Our restaurant will now commence serving full English breakfasts each morning but will remain closed for evening meals. We cannot enforce customers to wear a mask in our public areas however we will encourage it and our staff will continue to protect themselves. We will also encourage customers to remain socially distanced. Housekeeping of the bedrooms will continue to be by request.

    June update

    The latest update from the Government says that we must continue to operate under the current restrictions for a while longer. We were like everyone looking forward to 21st June to recommence normal operations. Sadly we now have to wait until July 19th.

    Unfortunately this does mean that for the time being our restaurant must continue to remain closed. Continental breakfast will continue to be served daily to the bedrooms and evening meals remain unavailable at this time. Our restaurant does not have the space to allow for social distancing therefore until this restriction is lifted we cannot operate the restaurant in a safe way. The safety of our guests and staff alike is paramount.

    Update 19th April 2021

    In line with Government guidelines the hotel will finally be reopening on 17th May 2021. The staff are now slowly coming back to work from furlough and are steadily working their way through all the messages and hope to get everyone rebooked in asap. Please bear with us in the coming weeks. All questions will be answered. Email is the best way forward until the hotel does reopen.

    We can't wait to welcome everyone back its been a very strange start to the year and we're looking forward to opening the doors once more.

    Lockdown 2 is finally almost over and following on from the latest update by the prime minister the hotel is due to reopen from 3rd December. In line with the new tier system we are now placed in tier two. Please ensure you abide by all the national and regional rules relating to the tier system when booking and upon arrival.

    It is assumed that customers who book now understand the prevalence of Covid-19 and as such will be making these bookings at their own risk.

    New T&Cs in line with Covid-19 at Dale Head Hall, Lakeside Hotel.

    Here at Dale Head Hall the health and safety of our customers and staff alike is paramount.


    Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and in line with Government guidelines we have introduced a few changes to ensure our customers can come for a relaxing stay whilst feeling that they are in a clean and safe environment.


    Check in

    Upon arrival at the hotel please head straight for the hotel lounge (on your left as you enter the building). Check in will be a little different from usual and we require all guests to adhere to the 2m social distancing guidelines.



    In line with social distancing guidelines and in the interests of guests safety we have taken the decision to close the restaurant. Our breakfast will be a little different and evening meals are currently unavailable. Each morning a breakfast bag will be placed at your door full of yummy goodies for you to enjoy.



    Each bedroom will be deep cleaned prior to your arrival. We have removed the automatic daily housekeeping and as an alternative please just ask at reception if you need any extra towels or toiletries for your room. These will be placed outside your room for you as wherever possible we will avoid entering your room during your stay. However, at check in should you still require your room cleaned during your stay you will be given a timeslot for this to be done. We will require you to vacate the room during your allocated cleaning time. We have removed all reading materials and guest information books from our rooms. Should you require any extra information during your stay please contact reception by dialling 0 from the phone in your room.


    Public areas

    To help with social distancing we require all guests to enter only through the front door and exit through the rear door by reception. Please be mindful of other guests when using the corridors. In line with current law face coverings must be worn in all our public areas.

    Hand sanitiser will be placed in all major contact points and we encourage all guests to utilise this each and every time they enter the building. You will also be provided with your own for use throughout your stay.

    We may look a little different to normal with our face shields on and other ppe but we are here to make your stay as enjoyable as always. If you need anything throughout your stay please use one of the buzzers or give us a call from your room and we'll be happy to help.


    All these measures may be adapted accordingly in line with Government guidelines.


    We kindly request that any guests showing symptoms of Covid-19 not to enter the building. Please contact reception if you develop any symptoms whilst at the hotel.
