DEPOSITS: For stays of three nights or more, a deposit for the first night will be taken at time of booking from the credit / debit card used to guarantee your reservation.


CANCELLATION / CURTAILMENT: Sometimes cancellation is unavoidable and we always try to be fair and reasonable if you need to cancel or amend your booking. We are a small, independent property however, so any cancellation or non-arrival affects us significantly; if we are unable to secure an alternative reservation we do reserve the right to charge if your booking is cancelled within your cancellation window.

The length of your stay determines the notice you need to give us to avoid cancellation fees. For example if your booking is for a single night, you need only give us one days’ notice i.e by noon the day prior to your arrival; if your reservation is for four nights you would need to let us know four days before you are due to arrive. If you are staying seven nights or longer, you must let us know at least one week prior to your arrival date that you are no longer able to come.

Alternative cancellation terms apply to multiple room bookings (we will agree these with you at time of booking) and certain Offer rates. A deposit will be required for bookings of, or equivalent to, three room nights or more.

Advance Purchase (Prepay) rates are for a specific date(s) and are strictly non-refundable and non-transferable.

In the unlikely event that you have to curtail your booking, a fee may be payable for the night(s) you are unable to stay, especially at busy periods and where we have turned away other bookings.

You may wish to consider taking out cancellation insurance to cover you in the event of a chargeable cancellation or curtailment.
