Check-In / Check-Out Policies
This property has the following check-in and check-out times and policies.
Property and Cancellation Policies :
A minimum of 7 days notice of cancellation or amendment of any reservation is required to avoid a cancellation charge as detailed in your confirmation. Cancellation or amendment within 7 days of the booking or non arrival will be charged equivalent to 100% of the total stay. We will however make every endeavour to re-let the room. If the room can be re-let to the full value of the cancelled booking there will be a refund minus a 20% administration fee and any commissions payable to third party OTAs. In order to avoid this undesirable situation we would strongly advise you to arrange holiday insurance cover. We regret that in the event of a delayed arrival or early departure there can be no credit for room nights or meals not taken during your stay. We reserve the right to cancel a booking with a full refund after confirmation has been received. We also reserve the right to terminate your stay without being liable for any refund or compensation when discomfort or distress is caused to other guests or we feel threatened or abused. Whilst we endeavour to supply your first choice of accommodation we reserve the right to change the room if and where necessary. There will be no extra charge in the event of an upgrade.
COVID 19. Should government guidelines prohibit you from travelling to us or for us to accommodate you, we will offer a change of dates or free cancellation. However, should you be unable to travel or continue your stay due to having contracted COVID 19, our full cancellation terms will apply. We would strongly advise you to arrange holiday insurance cover to cover such events.
A 90-day cancellation policy applies to all group bookings and for our photographic holidays. Notice of less than 30 days will be charged for the entire stay. Deposits for group bookings or our photographic holidays are not transferable or refunded.
We are a small guesthouse and are adversely affected by cancellations. For this reason our cancellation policy is strictly enforced. No shows will be charged the full amount of their stay.
