Hotel Update

Dearest Guest and Supporting Patrons


To protect the health and wellbeing of everyone at Braid Hills Hotel, and to play our part in minimising COVID-19 cases in the region, we’ve taken the very difficult decision to close the Braid Hills Hotel from Monday 23rd November. Unfortunately we will not be able to take any bookings for stays in 2020 and January 2021 but please enquire for the rest of 2021.  

During this time, all our bars and restaurants, will be closed.  Having worked so hard to provide a safe environment across our Hotel operations, we are saddened by this development, but we’re committed to taking the additional measures necessary to protect the health and wellbeing of everyone at Braid Hills Hotel, and to play our part in minimising COVID-19 cases.

This is purely a pause in operations, and we look forward to opening our doors again in the very near future. We will be posting regular updates for our guests and patrons on this website.

If you have an existing hotel, restaurant booking or would like to make a future booking enquiry, our team would be happy to reschedule your visit, provide a refund or process a new booking for a later date.  For more information, please don’t hesitate to contact our team at E: reservation@braidhillshotel.co.uk.
