Room Booklet

Car park

We have a small car park at the rear of the house accessed from the side road (Lawn Vista) at the end of the terrace. In the unlikely event of a guest being unable to park at the Cheriton, unrestricted parking is frequently available on the adjacent road, Lawn Vista.

We can also accomodate bicycles in a closed area, or motorbikes in our parking area.

Check-in time

Our normal check-in time is between 3:00 pm and 5:00 pm but we aim to be as flexible and practical as we can.Please let us know if you expect to arrive at a different time.If you are arriving earlier by arrangement, we are happy for you to have your room if it is ready, but we can’t guarantee rooms will be ready before 3:00 pm, particularly at busy times.If your room is not ready, we are happy for you to leave your car in the car park and return later.

Check-out & room cleaning

Check-out time is 10:30 am. It is normally possible to leave a car in the car park on the day of departure until lunchtime.Rooms are serviced each day between 10:30 am and 3:00 pm.


Breakfast is served between 8.00 am and 9.00 am in the dining room.


Hand and bath towels are provided in every room. In the interest of conserving water, we would hope that you may consider using your towels for more than one day. If you require your towels changing please place them in the shower tray and they will be changed when the rooms are serviced.


An iron and ironing board can be made available upon request.

Fire Alarm

Please note the fire alarm points. If the fire bell rings please leave the building by the nearest exit. Please do not assume that it is a false alarm. Please read the instructions available in the room and be aware of the procedures and meeting points that need to be used in the event of an evacuation.


Guests are given a room key and a key to the front door. We would always advise guests to lock their rooms when they are not occupying them.

Please make sure that you have a front door key with you when leaving the house. The front door has a Yale lock and hence will automatically lock itself when you close the door behind you. The key only needs to be used to open the door when you approach it from outside the house.


Please remember that it is against the law to smoke in a public building like our Guest House.It is our policy to ask that if guests would like to smoke, they can do so at that back of the house. Your cooperation in this matter will be most gratefully appreciated.

Tea & Coffee

Tea and coffee are available in the room, you will find a selection of fruit and herbal teas available on the hall table. Sachets of milk are available in the rooms, however, if you would like to use fresh milk then you will find small jugs and milk available in the chiller unit in the dining room.

Hot take away food

Please don’t take hot takeaway food into the guest rooms. By arrangement, we will be more than happy to clear a table in the dining room to enable you to eat in comfort.
