What You Can Do

We fully support NHS guidance regarding hand-washing. You may find the following video and graphic informative and practical.


Like many hotels and restaurants worldwide, we have been carefully adapting our booking policy to give you an increased degree of flexibility when booking with us.

Any guest holding reservations at our hotel will be allowed to make one reservation amendment free of charge for any future date booked until 31st August 2020, subject to availability.

With the uncertainty surrounding the current COVID-19 Pandemic, and the situation constantly evolving, we are reviewing our processes regularly.

Bookings that are affected by the temporary closure (until 5th July 2020) are entitled to a refund, please contact the agency you have booked through.*

*We have unfortunately been made aware that some online travel agencies (OTAs) have been miscommunicating to customers wishing to cancel OTA bookings, that The Belgrave has been withholding/rejecting these cancellation requests. We would like to clarify that this is not the case and The Belgrave have been honouring all guest cancellations since our closure especially with direct bookings, and have not received any communication of cancellations from OTAs, and therefore they have been responsible for withholding these cancellations. This is the same circumstance experienced by many other hotels, and we therefore advise you to consult your OTAs complaint policy to request your refund with them directly.
