Our Contract with you
By making a booking with us, you agree to the terms and conditions as listed below. These terms and conditions detailed below apply to all bookings made direct with us, or through third parties. Please note that for third parties and promotional bookings, the relevant additional terms and conditions should also be consulted.
We are unable to allow guests under the age of 12 years.
All our rooms feature standard or king size double beds. The maximum occupancy is two adults. One of our King Rooms features an additional Sofa-Bed. A third person may occupy this room provided it is pre-booked direct with us in advance. An additional charge will apply.
We reserve the right to increase or decrease the prices of accommodation at any time. The price of your stay will be confirmed at the time of booking.
Where payment is taken at the property, we can accept Visa / Mastercard Credit / Debit Cards. We also accept Apple Pay and Android Pay. We are sorry but we do not accept cash or cheques. Card details must be provided when booking to secure your reservation. Payment may be charged automatically at any point prior to your stay.
Transfer of Bookings
Once made, bookings cannot be transferred to other guests and are valid only for the named booker/named guests only.
Cancellations, Curtailments and No-Shows
Cancellations to bookings (including packages) made up to 4 days (96 hours) prior to our Check-In start time of 4pm on the arrival date/time may be made without charge when booking direct (except where a non refundable booking is made, or a non refundable deposit applies). More than one change of date may attract an additional admin charge. Different policies may apply via online booking/travel agents or during certain dates. Minimum night stays may apply.
Cancelled reservations (including No-Shows, stay curtailments, or arrival after the stated Check-In period has ended where a late arrival has not been agreed in writing) after the free cancellation period has ended will be subject to a cancellation charge equivalent to the full price of the reservation. This charge is to compensate our business for the late cancellation including administrative tasks associated with processing the cancellation.
Changes to bookings that reduce the number of nights, where a minimum night stay applies to the booked dates, will be subject to a cancellation charge equivalent to the full price of the reservation.
Where a booking is cancelled due to a member of the party having a positive Covid result, the full price of the reservation remains payable. For direct bookings, alternative dates may be offered at our discretion within a limited period, any differences in rates will be payable.
Please ensure your Travel Insurance covers risk of cancellation due to Covid or other eventualities.
Minimum Night Stays
Date availability may be subject to a minimum number of nights stay. In the event of a cancellation, only the full booking can be cancelled, and may not be reduced to a number of nights below the minimum night stay that applies for the booked dates. Cancellation charges will apply according to the policy above.
When booking three or more rooms, or stays of three or more nights we may request that a non refundable deposit of 50% of the stay is paid in advance.
We strongly suggest guests take out travel insurance for short breaks and holidays in the UK to cover themselves against cancellation charges and to protect themselves against possible loss due to any unforeseen circumstances such as illness, adverse weather conditions, traffic delays, etc. It is your responsibility to check that the insurance you purchase is adequate for your needs.
