THE ‘SMALL’ PRINT
By booking a room or rooms with us guests agree to arrive for the booked period and also agree to our terms and conditions in this ‘Small Print’ section.
Bookings are for the number of people specified at the time of booking, should the party be larger than booked, another room will be offered to the extra guests if it is available. Also up to 2 additional people can be accommodated in the Master/Family room only, this on the basis of a shared double sofa bed.
Extra guests will be charged at the published rates. Should extra rooms be unavailable or the Master room solution be unacceptable the additional guests will be asked to make alternative arrangements elsewhere, should the guest(s) booked decide to accompany them their booking will be treated as a “no show” and charged accordingly.
Guests may take up their rooms from 15:30 but please indicate an approximate ETA on booking so we can make sure someone is in to greet you and we MUST know if arrival is going to be delayed past 22:00.
Guests are requested to vacate their rooms by 11:00 on the day of departure. We will always endeavour to offer a late check-out facility to 14:00 but ask for understanding if it’s not possible.
A deposit may be requested which would be by personal cheque at present. Should one be required it will be requested at the time of booking confirmation.
We will always try to accommodate amendments to bookings however if this is not possible the original booking will need to be honoured unless we are able to re-sell the booking made. This same policy also applies to cancelled bookings unless we are able to re-sell the room when a full refund will be made.
Please Note: Final bills can be paid by personal or travelers cheque or cash, currently payment by credit or debit cards is NOT possible.
Sorry but we do not accommodate pets of any nature in the house apart from guide dogs
