Coronavirus update

March 23, 2020

Achaban House bookings during 2020 are now affected by interventions from the Scottish Government.  On March 22nd the Scottish Government stated, with reference to Covid-19, the following:

“To our hotels, B&Bs and self-catering accommodation – you should not be accepting visitors”

“Ferries will be for those who live on our islands, who have an essential need to travel to or from the mainland and for essential supplies or business.  Nothing else.”

Therefore it is clear that we are unable to receive guests at Achaban House until further notice to protect our guests and our community from the risk and spread of the infection.

For guests who have a current booking with us, that may be affected by the Government's actions on Covid-19, we regret, as per our terms and conditions, deposits made at the time of booking are non-refundable.  However we are offering to transfer deposits to a booking at a future date, subject to availability. Alternatively, we can cancel the booking and guests can reclaim the value of their deposit from their travel insurance.

At the moment we will not be taking any new bookings for 2020 until further notice. We are hoping to be open to guests in the late summer and autumn of 2020, but this will depend on any further interventions from the Scottish and UK Governments. Our overriding concern is always for the health of our guests and the people in our local community.

We look forward to welcoming guests at some point in the future, once it is safe to do so, for the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Ross of Mull and Iona once more.
