Our Terms

These terms and conditions apply to any person making a reservation with us whether online, in person or via telephone or other form of telecommunication. They should be read in conjunction with the terms and conditions set out on our Registration Form, which apply in addition to the terms and conditions set out below. In the event of any conflict between such terms and conditions and those set out in the Registration Form, these terms and conditions shall prevail.

RESERVATIONS

We understand that plans change. Should you need to cancel or amend your reservation, please do so not later than 24 hours prior to the time of your expected arrival as set out in your reservation. For any cancellations or amendments made to your reservation after this time we reserve the right to make a charge of one night's rate for the room that you had reserved. Please note that some room rates have specific cancellation terms in respect of which we will have informed you at time of booking in which case the relevant cancellation terms will apply. For instance, some rates are non-cancellable and, if such a booking is cancelled or if the length of stay is reduced, a full non-refundable deposit of the total accommodation cost will be processed from the credit card you have provided at the time of booking.

Except where we've agreed in advance, specific suite or room numbers are not provided to you prior to your arrival. Where you have been given a specific suite or room number, we reserve the right to change it.

Very rarely, we may need to substitute your reserved accommodation with similar or comparable accommodation. You agree to accept any such substitution as satisfactory performance by us of our obligation to provide the reserved accommodation.

Rarely, errors may occur in respect of your reservation. Where we are unable to accommodate you, we do our best to secure alternative accommodation for you of the same quality.

All descriptions, images and indications of the price of our accommodation provided on the Website or otherwise communicated to you are for illustrative purposes only and intended merely to present a general idea of the accommodation and the room rate. Although we have made every effort to display the rooms and suites accurately, the accommodation may vary slightly from those images. Your room rate and other accommodation details and the total price payable by you will be specified in the booking summary of your reservation.

CHECK IN / CHECKOUT TIME

Check-in is available from 3pm. If you are arriving early, we're pleased to offer early check-in upon availability. However, to guarantee availability if arriving before 3pm, we recommend you book the previous night.

The checkout time is 12 noon. Should you wish to arrange a late checkout beyond this time, this can be arranged but we reserve the right to make a surcharge. If a late checkout has not been agreed, we reserve the right to levy a surcharge of 25% of the contracted room rate for every hour the room remains occupied beyond the official checkout time (which is a reasonable pre- estimate of the loss we will suffer as a result of your continued occupation) and to remove your belongings from the room and store them to enable us to prepare the room for the next guest.

REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS

On your arrival at the Hotel, we will ask you to complete a Registration Form for all the guests in your group over the age of 16 who will be resident at the Hotel.
