In the unlikely event that we are forced to cancel your booking, due to circumstances beyond our control, we will attempt to offer you alternative accommodation. If suitable accommodation is not available (or unacceptable to you) then we will refund all monies already paid by you and confirm that you will not be liable for any further payments to us. In any circumstances where you are entitled to compensation, the limit of our liability to you arising from our breach of contract will be up to a maximum of the total cost of your booking.
ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE
You will be able to check-in between the hours of 14:00 and 21:00 hrs. Arrivals after 21:00 hrs are by prior arrangement only. If prior arrangements have not been made, and you do not arrive by 21:00 hrs, we are entitled to treat it as a "no-show". Your booking will be cancelled and we have the right to re-let your room. We request that you vacate your room 11:00 hrs on the day of departure.
DAMAGE & BREAKAGE
We are sure that you will take care whilst you stay with us, and we acknowledge that accidents sometimes happen. We do however reserve the right to charge for any damage or breakages which we consider to be deliberately or recklessly caused, for any items discovered missing after you depart or for the cost of the room for any time period for which it is considered unusable due to damage. In agreeing to our terms and conditions, you authorise us to charge this amount to the debit/ credit card used to secure the booking. If the damage/breakages are discovered after you depart, you will be notified of any costs in writing as soon as is reasonably practicable, to be settled by the return of post.
For the consideration of our other guests, we cannot accept bookings for children under the age of 16. At check-in, we can check the age of any members in your party and we do reserve the right to cancel your booking without a refund.
We are a No Smoking establishment. If we find that guests have been smoking in the room, or anywhere on the premises, then we reserve the right to ask you to leave immediately. You will remain liable for the whole of the cost of your stay. Whether or not you are asked to leave, we also reserve the right to charge a sum equivalent to one night's stay if we are unable to re-let the room for 24 hours whilst it is fully aired. In agreeing to our terms and conditions, you authorise us to charge this amount to the debit/ credit card used to secure the booking. If evidence of smoking is discovered after you depart, you will be notified of any costs in writing as soon as is reasonably practicable, to be settled by the return of post.
