Our contract with you
These are the Terms on which We provide the Room(s) to you and supply Services to you, and on which you make a Booking.
Please ensure that you read these Terms carefully, and check that the details of the Booking complete and accurate, before you submit the Booking. If you think that there is a mistake or require any changes, please contact Us to discuss. We will confirm any changes in writing to avoid any confusion between you and Us.
These Terms will become binding on you and Us when We contact you that We are able to satisfy the Booking and provide you with the Services, which We will also confirm in writing to you, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and Us.
At the time of accepting your advance Booking, or alternatively at check-in, the Hotel will take your debit/credit card details and you hereby authorise the use of this card for any sums that become owing to Us.
No Booking shall be treated as confirmed until the details described in 2.6 have been provided.
In order to guarantee your Booking the Hotel requires your name and contact details, in addition to the details of a valid debit/credit card. Your card will only be charged upon the event of late cancellation (see below at 3.2) or in the event of a no show.
At check-in you can choose to pay with the card used to reserve the room or by cheque or with cash (see below at 4.6).
Any debit or credit card used to reserve your Booking must have an expiry date that is valid after the date of stay.
Cancellations and no show policy
Cancellation of a room reservation may be made before 24 hours before your arrival date. In the event of such a cancellation, no charge will be taken.
If a reservation is not cancelled 24 hours before your arrival date a charge for one night’s accommodation per room booked will be levied from the debit/credit card given at Booking.
Failure to cancel your reservation 24 hours before your arrival date gives the Hotel the right to charge for one night’s accommodation.
If you decide to shorten your stay you must inform us by 12 noon on the day otherwise you will be charged the cost of one night’s accommodation per room booked.
Prices and payment
The price of the room will be set out in Our price list in force at the time or on Our website when We confirm your Booking. Our prices may change at any time, but price changes will not affect Bookings that We have confirmed with you.
These prices include VAT. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of the Booking and the date of your stay, We will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay.
Full payment for your entire stay is chargeable at check-in. If you have made a reservation, then payment for your Booking can be taken from the credit or debit card details provided at the time of reservation.
In the event of a no show our cancellation policy is detailed above at 3.3.
Full payment upon check-in by cheque or cash can be also be accepted. Cheques must be covered by a current bankers guarantee card.
If payment by cash or cheque is taken at check-in, the Hotel reserves the right to take debit/credit card details for use in the event of abuse of the Services We provide.
Rooms are available from 3pm on the arrival date.
Check out is 11am on the day of departure. Failure to vacate your room by this time on the day of departure will result in additional charges up to and including the cost of one night’s accommodation.
We operate a 100% no-smoking policy throughout the Hotel. Any guest(s) found to have been smoking in their Room(s) will be charged a deep cleaning fee of £200.
We reserve the right to levy a cleaning charge of £30 to guests, if a room is considered to be left in an unreasonable condition upon checkout.
When you book a room at the Hotel it is sold on the basis that it has been sold to you for your own personal use. The Hotel reserves the right to terminate your stay if, in Our reasonable opinion, the room is not being used in an appropriate manner by the appropriate people. The Hotel reserves the right to take payment for any subsequent nights’ stays which are thereby forfeited.
When you book with Us you accept responsibility for any damage or loss caused by you or any member of your party. The Hotel reserves the right, and you hereby authorise us, to charge your debit/credit card for any damage incurred to your room or the Hotel during your stay (including without limitation specialist cleaning) or any items that are missing when you leave.
