We are open!

27-10-2020 | Category: General News


It has been a while since we written a blog on our website, sorry. Why has it taken so long I can hear you think? You must have been closed for months so would have had time to write so many blogs. 

You are absolutely right! I think like many other people took lockdown as a reason to do nothing but eat and drink. Well nothing? 

The first weeks of lockdown I spend digging up our vegetable plot and platted lots of vegetables. The result were poor as at the start I did not water the plants enough so due to the hot weather we had 99% dried out. Thereafter the weeds started to grow due to the rain!! 

Apart from gardening I painted all but 1 room, including the corridors and stairways, taken me about 3 weeks, of course to take a break to eat and drink!!!! The last room could not be painted as we were lucky enough to have a guest stay with us…….. for 140 nights, on a self catering basis at The Hive at 52. 

Of course we are great full to have the guest stay with us, however as you can imagine, it was nowhere near the ‘normal/ historical’ occupancy we would have experienced. There were no weddings in the weekend, races at Oulton Park were halted and of course Tatton Flower show was cancelled.  

The time off, when we were closed, gave us time to finally proceed with some of the maintenance required at The Hive at 52. We are so pleased with our new blinds in both Bee Happy & Bee Comfy giving our guests additional privacy whilst in their rooms. We also installed an additional radiator in the bathroom of Bee Comfy, after a few comments regarding the temperature in the bathroom.  Due to Covid we also installed Hand sanitiser units and signs, reviewed soft furnishings in the rooms and our check-in and breakfast procedures. 

Since re-opening we have welcomed a steady stream of regular guests and some new guests to The Hive at 52 however nowhere near 2019 numbers. The feedback from our guests following the changes have been fantastic, mainly that we did not really change even with some of the changes. The best feedback we could wish for. 

2020 has been a tough year and sadly I am sure we have not seen the end of it. AS I said we are open for business, we are Covid safe and would love to welcome you to The Hive at 52. If you are worried, call us, we can discuss your concerns. In the meantime stay save, stay healthy and see you soon.
