Coronavirus – Promoting a Safe Stay

The months between March 2020 and the present time have been the most challenging in many of our lifetimes. We are now learning to live with Covid, but it is still sensible to follow some basic best practices. Although we all need to keep a respectful distance that does not mean we cannot be sociable. Many businesses in Weymouth have also modified their service to ensure a safe experience. Some suggestions are listed on our Places to Eat page;

Al Molo – Italian – 2min walk

Enzos – Italian – 5 min walk

Chillis – Indian – 10 min walk

Seabeats – fish – 10 min walk

Rockfish – fish – 10-15 min walk

Shalims – Indian – 10-15 min walk

Monas Thai – 15 min walk

Before you arrive

Although the Government guidance has relaxed in regards to Covid, we would ask if you have any of the common symptoms (fever, persistent new cough, loss of taste or smell) that you do not travel.  Should you become ill during your stay with these symptoms, inline with Government advice, you will be asked to leave immediately in order to travel home to self isolate. It is imperative during your stay that a distance of 1-2 m is maintained between us and you in order to lower any risk of transmission.

On day of arrival

Check in will not be possible prior to 3 pm to allow us time to ensure rooms are cleaned to a high standard. Our position in Weymouth (opposite St Johns Church) means that we are fortunate to have both on-site parking and free parking at the front of the house. With careful parking the car park is big enough for all of our guests. Our car park is situated at the rear (in Grange Road). The entrance is then a short walk round to the front. Please note there is no access into the house from the back as this is our private accommodation.

Check in

Please use the hand sanitiser each time prior to entering the building. Your keys will be in your room. Payment of any balance will be due at check in. Please let us know if you wish to pay cash.

Your room

All bedding is commercially laundered at high temperatures. We will not return as yet to entering rooms for the purpose of refreshing and topping up. Please contact us if there is anything you need – our mobile numbers are available in the room.


A full range of breakfast choices is available as we understand this is often an important part of your holiday. We will stagger breakfast times to ensure social distancing in the dining room and everything will be ordered rather than buffet. Breakfast times will be agreed with you and the request form is available on line – please complete daily by 9 pm for the following day.  Families with children will be accommodated first in the dining room.


We pride ourselves on high standards of cleanliness here at St Johns so our regime now will be enhanced, using the appropriate PPE and disinfectant, ensuring public areas are also cleaned regularly during the day. Room keys will be sanitised between guests.

Check out

On check out day please ensure you leave by 11 am. Please leave your windows open in order to air the room and your keys in the door. We still love to say goodbye before you go so please let us know when you are on your way. We really appreciate your understanding during this transitional period and hope that you will return again in more normal times.

Thank you for your understanding!
