Conditions of Booking

All Reservations must be guaranteed with a £50.00 Non-Refundable deposit. This is non-refundable deposit includes pandemic outbreaks – government closures and act of God situations. This can be taken from your credit card or debit card, with your permission, over the telephone.

In the event of a cancellation, we can transfer your £50.00 deposit to a new booking as long as
14 days clear notice is given, the new stay must be within six months of the original booking. If you are unable to stay on a second occasion within those six months the deposit will be forfeited.

We require 14 days’ notice if the booking is wanted to be cancelled- less than 14 days and 50% of the entire stay will be charged if the room is not relet. Please understand we only take this new policy change as a matter of protection for the hotel and its longevity. If less than 72 hours’ notice is given then full payment for the entire stay will be charged.

Cancellation must be confirmed by Phone, mail or e-mail. We strongly recommend insuring against cancellation ~ please ask for more information.

A person (or persons) making reservations, or causing them to be made, is responsible for the booking in its entirety. That is unless said person(s) directs the hotel in writing to confirm the booking to others, and to hold them responsible for the booking and any charges in relation thereto. Confirmations on business or other letterhead carry acceptance of these conditions.

Note: Cancelling because of Covid. Due to the government’s latest guidance, it is now that if you have covid 5 days isolation is advised, once the 5 days has elapsed you are no longer transmissible so are permitted too not self-isolate. With this in mind we feel that we will apply the 5-day guidance to our bookings if any further notice of covid is given we are sorry but we won’t be able to accept this as a reason for cancelling at this time. If a serious case of covid is experienced we will of course take this cases as an exception to the rule.

We look forward to welcoming you…
