Reassurance to our guests coming to Snowdonia

March 13th 2020

Pentre Bach Bunkhouse would like to reassure our guests that cleaning is happening everyday and a deep clean always has been carried out after each group regardless of Corona virus.

At Pentre Bach we take hygiene very seriously. All our hard surfaces, floors, door handles, light switches, microwave handles and hobs are disinfected every day and our soft furnishings are aired and sprayed or washed after each booking. There are anti bacterial wipes in the toilets for your use if you wish. Disinfectant sprays have always been left in the showers for your use after showering as well as daily disinfecting by us as I have always hated grubby showers and toilets- very much a pet hate of mine! We will also have at least 12hrs between each booking until further notice. We are ideally based for the mountains coast and attractions and make a great place for groups wishing sole use. Cost £210 per night. If less than 12 then let us know for a different price
