Coronavirus, COVID 19 - Latest Update


We at Brend hotels have taken the decision to temporarily close all of our leisure based hotels, spas, restaurants and bars in the southwest, from 21st March at 12pm for a minimum of 4 weeks.

The decision has been taken to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our staff, guests & local communities. We do not wish to put any extra strain on our own staff or increase the likelihood of the spread of Coronavirus to our community, further putting strain on our NHS and supporting services.

After consulting with our local Member of Parliament, one of our hotels, The Barnstaple Hotel, will remain open for NHS staff during these unprecedented times where social distancing will be upheld. Should there be more of a demand, we will review this to further assist those doing such a fantastic job for our country at this vital time.

We will continue to monitor the situation as it develops - please check our website for the latest updates.

Your Booking

Rest assured, we have a small team here to assist those who wish to make a reservation for the future or who have a particular query. For those who have an up and coming booking, you will be contacted direct. 

We would kindly ask that you’ll wait to hear from us regarding your booking. As you can appreciate, we are experiencing a high number of calls and emails and of course we need to prioritise the immediate breaks coming up.

We look forward to welcoming you to the hotel in the near future and thank you for your ongoing support and patience during this difficult time. 

Kind Regards,


Brend Family
