Gilfach Wen Barn – cleaning between guests – Coronavirus
March 13th 2020
To respond to Coronavirus I have changed booking policies for Gilfach Wen Barn. – Only exclusive bookings from large groups and a minimum of 36 hours between bookings for deep clean.
I normally accept last minute bookings from small groups who share the use of Gilfach Wen Barn, I have changed my booking system to block such bookings. – There is normally 16 hours of cleaning work goes into preparing the property between exclusive use bookings. By ensuring that there is at least 36 hours between one group leaving and the next checking in there is time to disinfect hard surfaces that would normally just need to be dusted.
