Terms and Conditions
Please read this brief guide. Confirmation of a booking by the Client is deemed acceptance of these terms.
All published rates include VAT at the current rate. The Hotel reserves the right to alter prices for any reason up to the date of booking or up to 12 weeks prior to arrival, whichever is the later. After such dates, prices may only be altered to reflect a change in the rate of VAT and taxes or for any other reason outside of the control of the Hotel, in which case the changes will be notified to the Client. In the latter event, the Client may cancel the booking without cost.
All rooms and rates are subject to availability and the discretion of the Hotel manager.
3. Bookings and Balance Payments.
Bookings must be guaranteed for the first night’s accommodation via a major credit or debit card, by payment of a non-refundable deposit per room or by agreement in writing with a company, travel agent or hotel booking agency. At the discretion of the Hotel, or for some packages, full pre-payment may be required. At least 3 working days are required to process credit and debit card payments and cheques are only accepted by prior arrangement.
4. Arrival and departure
Bedrooms are usually available from 3pm on the day of arrival. Check out is by 11 am. There may be occasions, at times of high demand, when guests can check in and use all the hotel facilities, but the bedroom is still being prepared.
5. Cancellations, amendments and non-arrivals
When the booking is confirmed, a reservation number will be supplied. This must be retained for access to the booking in the event of the need for cancellation and/or amendment. If a confirmed reservation is cancelled at any time up to 48 hours prior to arrival the deposit will be retained, though may sometimes be carried forward to a future booking for up to 24 months. In the event of non-arrival or cancellation after this time and where the booking has been guaranteed, a charge equivalent to one night’s accommodation at the package rate at which the reservation was made will be levied. Normal terms of payment apply to these charges. For this purpose the Hotel reserves the right to set-off the amount payable for such cancellation against the Client’s credit card without prior notice or approval of the Client, where applicable.
If the guest decides to leave before the pre-booked stay has been fulfilled, they are responsible for paying the accommodation charges for the following 24 hours.
Settlement of the bill in full, less any advance payments must be made prior to departure from the Hotel. Upon arrival the Hotel reserves the right to request preauthorisation of the Client’s credit or debit card or where payment is to be by cash, request the Client to place cash up to an amount of 1.5 times the room rate multiplied by the number of nights booked.
All major credit and debit cards are accepted except Diners Club. Personal cheques are only accepted by prior arrangement. Company cheques are not accepted without prior clearance. Please contact the Hotel prior to arrival. Accounts may only be forwarded for payment on completion by the Client and formal acceptance by the Hotel of an application for credit facilities, which may be withdrawn at any time. Credit facilities are not offered to private individuals.
All sums are due for payment on presentation of the invoice.
