Extra Deep Cleaning
Hundreds of hours at this computer adapting this web site and how we proceed with structures in place to help keep the place extra clean and virus free.
We have gone to a HUGE amount of work to get all sorts of things in order to help protect us all from Covid 19.
Sexual Contact - I have been asked what guidelines we have in place for sexual contact between guests and other than to say - THIS IS NOT MY BUSINESS - It is up to you how you move forward sexually after a protracted period in isolation for many.
You know the risks.
You know the law.
You are over 21.
I am not your Mother.
If in doubt, just ask me and we can chat with you about safe Covid 19 sex.
This is your holiday - and we want you to relax and enjoy. What you do in the privacy of your room is not my concern. Please keep any 'close encounter' in your room and not within the downstairs rooms please.
We went through a sexual pandemic in the 80's and 90's with HIV / AIDS where the world did nothing for years and thousands of young gay men died before anyone took any notice - and we all know why.
If at any time we feel you abusing what we offer or act in an unreasonable manner - put others at risk or simply will not respond if and when asked to change your ways - you WILL be asked / instructed to leave and no refund offered.
If this means contacting the police / local health authority - we will.
Apologies for this harsh manner, but working within the gay world has taught us that some people do not know how to behave and it is NOT always the young but all too often, the older generation who can have - at times - a fucked up and resentful attitude towards other LGBTQ and this is not tolerated at Hamilton Hall. Homophobia comes from WITHIN the LGBTQ world - and we have worked for decades with this community and know it all too well. Please, bring and present the best of yourself as we hope to offer in return. We all have bad / off days - understandable under the current circumstances - and I am sure much pain and hurt will accompany many after this horrifying Covid years - and we are here to help relieve the tension and worry - but not at a price we are unwilling to pay for ourselves.
We are all in this together.
We have all suffered in lockdown.
I worry about myself as well as my business.
You are not the only one going through it.
Business' are closing and many large corporate venues gone for good. If Hamilton Hall is to survive and continue, we rely on you for financial input. With many venues taking government hand outs and then closing down and running, we are still here - still open where and when allowed and still here for you - and your appreciation of the mountainous workload we are involved with - is massively appreciated. These are not normal times and we are working 14 hours a day PLUS in order to keep all within Hamilton Hall - safe.
