We do not accept American Express or Diners Club.  Prices include VAT at the current rate.  Prices quoted are for bookings made directly with the hotel. Bookings made via third parties may incur commission or other charges.

SECURING YOUR BOOKING:  Although most bookings do not require a deposit, card details are required as part of the booking process, although this card does not have to be used when paying on arrival.  The purpose of taking card details at time of booking is to verify the authenticity of the booking and provide a payment source in the event of cancellation or no show for any fees due.  In event of a charge becoming due, although we will attempt to contact you to offer a choice of payment methods, in providing credit or debit card details with your booking, you authorise the charging of these fees in accordance with our cancellation policy (below). 
It is an unfortunate aspect of the Hospitality industry that on occasion false card details are provided with bookings.  Validity checks may be carried out on the card details provided.  In event of initial cards details proving invalid, we reserve the right to require full payment immediately using a secure payment method. If we fail to receive payment, we reserve the right to reject the booking at any point (charges may still apply if the Hotel does not fully recover the value of the original booking).

CANCELLATIONS / PART-CANCELLATIONS: We recommend you have Travel Insurance for your stay as cancellations or changes to your booking will normally incur fees.  Should you need to cancel, part-cancel, or alter your booking, please inform the hotel immediately. Provided that notice is received more than 4 days (per room booked, e.g. a booking for 2 rooms would require 2 x 4 days = more than 8 days notice) before your scheduled arrival date – then a £25 admin fee will apply per room. If notice of change or cancellation is received after this time, full payment will be due but may be partially refunded if the room/s is re-let for the full period, less an admin fee of £25.00.  If, after arrival, you need to shorten your visit, you will remain liable to a charge equal to the total cost of the booking but if you booked direct with us, this may be partially refunded should we be able to re-let the room/s. If you fail to arrive without giving notice you will be liable for the full cost of the reservation made. Although we will attempt to contact you to offer a choice of payment methods, in providing credit or debit card details with your booking, you authorise the charging of these fees in accordance with our cancellation policy, if we are unable to contact you, or no acceptable alternate payment method is advised.
