Our normal deposit for an accommodation booking is the cost of the first night in full. Failure to make a timely deposit payment will revoked and cancel your booking. We will usually contact you before taking this action. Deposits are non-refundable. Deposit payments may be made by card, cheque, cash or bank transfer.

No show / cancelling short notice

By making a reservation and confirming a booking, our agreement is a legal contract. If you are unable to stay at the hotel and your booking cannot be re-let, you are still liable to pay for the booking in full, even if we have not yet received your balance.

If the booking is able to be re-let, you are no longer liable for the balance, or if prepaid we will refund it to you, less a 5% administration fee. This fee may be waived where the booking was made on debit card.

Non deposited reservations, usually for individual bookings and a maximum two-night booking, may be cancelled at short notice without charge. Rooms may be held against card details and cancelled before 12:00 noon 2 days prior to arrival date. We will charge a minimum of the first night for any rooms cancelled after this time.

Please note that your deposit is not refundable under any circumstances. We would recommend that you take out cancellation insurance to cover this cost.
