COVID 19 Measures

We’re good to go

We are looking forward to welcoming guests to Ballygrant Inn & Restaurant on the 1st of September and we are delighted to be able to be inviting you back.

The safety of our guests, colleagues, local suppliers and the community on our Island remains our number one priority. In re-opening, we will keep the same characteristic warmth and welcome but will be complying with all Government requirements, regulations and standards as well as adding a few of our own.

We may look a little different but our commitment to our core values of quality and standards will be as before and we are looking forward to giving you an Islay welcome.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions and we thank you for your continued support and look forward to seeing you soon.

Health & Hygiene

We are busy preparing to welcome you to the Ballygrant Inn & Restaurant and we have worked hard behind the scenes to ensure the safety of our guests.

Our rooms are serviced and cleaned every day with our specialist range of antibacterial and antiviral products and our staff are fully trained on their proper utilisation with emphasis on high contact areas. Our housekeepers wear both gloves and masks in the normal course of their duties and are provided with PPE.

We will be maintaining social distancing of 2M at all times. Glasses, mugs and spoons will be removed after each departure regardless of whether they have been used as well as linen and towels. All rooms are completely disinfected and sanitised after every stay and are ready to welcome new guests.

Breakfast will be served at your table in the dining room. We would ask guests to pre-book a breakfast slot so that we can stagger the numbers in the dining room.

Our Restaurant and Whisky Bar has been set up to meet social distancing guidelines. We would ask you to book in advance so that we can best manage the flow of guests. We have implemented a one way system and a one in one out toilet policy. The bar and restaurant will only offer a table service. Everything that can be sanitised will be sanitised. Our chinaware, cutlery and glassware passes through our dishwasher which comply with food safety regulations. Your table will be laid on your arrival at your table. All reusable items such as condiments will be sanitised after each use.
