What happens after?
The big question on everyone's lips, is what happens after the COVID-19 lockdown?
The honest answer is, no-one knows. This does not mean, however, that we must sit and wait for the lockdown to end...or extend. We need to start making plans for when the world does return to some form of normality. Probably a completely new normal to what we're used to, but we have a fixed asset that isn't going anywhere, so we need to adapt in order to make it work for us, our staff and our clients.
The thing on everyone's lips at the moment is hygiene. We've always prided ourselves on ensuring that our rooms are spotless, but cleaning isn't good enough anymore. We will be embarking on training our staff in more efficient and effective ways of cleaning and sanitizing, in order to eliminate the possibility of spreading the virus as much as we can. We've tried out a number of "anti-bacterial" cleaners on the market and have settled on a couple that will both clean dirt, and kill germs. There are still items that have to be clarified, but we're getting there, and as soon as we've got the basics down, we'll let you know the steps we'll be taking.
Over the last couple of weeks we have been mulling over the menu items that we have been serving at the guesthouse. We have decided that a change is in order! We'll be instituting a "meal of the day" which will change on a regular basis. If our meal of the day doesn't tickle your taste buds, well, then you will still be able to order a couple of items from the old menu, but the choices will be reduced. We may even have some special desserts available on occasion...Obviously we will still need time to prepare the meals, so the dinner order timing of having to order before 17h30 in the evening will still apply.
Keep an eye on our Facebook page to see the type of meals we're doing.
