Our COVID-19 Secure approach to health, hygiene and cleanliness


Whilst the Sportsview Guest House has always maintained very high cleanliness standards, we have increased these to minimise the spread of Covid-19 and follow government policies. When we are able to welcome you back, rest assured that all measures possible to stay safe have been accounted for. As such we will take the following steps so that your stay is safe and enjoyable:


All our rooms will be deep cleaned and disinfected before the next guest is due;with special attention given to high-touch items. Certain amenities will be removed from rooms but will be available on request. Hand sanitiser can be found in communal areas in the guesthouse. 


Communal areas - everything from door handles, room keys and all public spaces will be cleaned and disinfected frequently. 


We will be putting various social distancing measures in place to keep everyone safe in communal areas. As part of this we will be offering a tasty takeaway breakfast option for those guests booking a breakfast inclusive rate.

Exceeded all of our expectations!

"The Sportsview exceeded all of our modest expectations.The location was superb. Just 10 minutes walk from the centre of the city, but this is just far enough out so the traffic is relatively quiet. We even managed to get a space in their free car park.The breakfast selection was decent, with lightning-fast service with a smile.Rooms were very clean.Wi-fi was super fast, and available everywhere in the building.In fact I can't think of a single bad thing to say!"
