Making your booking
To make a booking, you may either book online (where available) or telephone the hotel directly on 01789 335960. The person making the booking (“the party leader”) must be at least 18 and must be authorised to make the booking on the basis of these Booking Conditions by all persons named on the booking. By making a booking, the party leader confirms that they are so authorised and that all party members agree to be bound by these Booking Conditions. (Please note the hotel will refuse entry if none of the staying party are above the age of 18). The party leader is responsible for making all payments due to the hotel concerned. We will confirm your arrangements by issuing a confirmation upon request by email or post. This will be sent to the party leader or your travel agent. Please check this carefully as soon as you receive it. Contact us immediately if any information, which appears on the confirmation, or any other document appears to be incorrect or incomplete as it may not be possible to make changes later. Subject to this, we regret we cannot accept any liability if we are not notified of any inaccuracy in any document within 14 days of our sending it out. We will do our best to rectify any mistake notified to us outside these time limits but you must meet any costs involved in doing so. The only exception to this requirement to meet costs is where the mistake in question was made by us and there is good reason why you did not tell us about it within these time limits.

Payment for incidental extras (e.g. mini bars, telephone charges, etc.) must be made directly to the hotel before you check out.
A binding contract between you and the hotel comes into existence when we send your confirmation invoice to the party leader and the terms and conditions of the hotel, in addition to these conditions, will be applicable to the contract.

Cost of your arrangement
Supplements for single rooms or single occupancy of a twin/double may apply. Executive rooms/suites are often available at a supplement. Please read our General Information section too. The prices of unsold arrangements may be increased or decreased at any time. The price of your chosen arrangements will be confirmed at the time of booking. We reserve the right to correct errors in both advertised and confirmed prices. We will do so as soon as we become aware of the error. Please note, changes and errors occasionally occur. You must check the price of your chosen arrangements at the time of booking. Once the actual price of your arrangements has been confirmed, no amendment will be made to it.
Changes by you
Should you wish to make any changes to your confirmed booking, you must notify us in writing or contact us on 01789 335960 as soon as possible. Whilst we will try to assist you we regret amendment requests cannot always be met. Where an amendment can be made, any costs incurred by ourselves and any costs or charges incurred or imposed by the hotel will be payable. See also, the specific terms detailed above.
Cancellation by you
Should you or any member of your party need to cancel your chosen break once it has been confirmed, the party leader must immediately advise the hotel on 01789 335960 or cancel online. Your notice of cancellation will only be effective when it is received by the hotel, at which time you will be given a cancellation number relating to the date and time of your call / online cancellation. You must keep this for reference. The cancellation charges of the hotel will apply. Please refer to each of the products listed above for full details of each individual cancellation policy.
Changes and Cancellation by us
If there is a change to, or cancellation of your booking we will pass on the new details to you together with any compensation that the hotel may offer.
You are strongly recommended to take out personal travel insurance for all members of your party. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance cover you purchase is adequate for your particular needs. We do not check insurance policies.
Except where otherwise expressly stated in these booking conditions, we regret we cannot accept liability or pay any compensation where the performance or prompt performance of our contractual obligations is prevented or affected by or you otherwise suffer any damage or loss as a result of “force majeure”. In these Booking Conditions, “force majeure” means any event which we or the hotel in question could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid. Such events may include war or threat of war, riot, civil strife, terrorist activity or actual threatened terrorist activity, industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar events outside our control.
Complaints or Problems
In the event that you have any reason to complain or experience any problems with your break, you must immediately inform the hotel. Any verbal notification must be put in writing. If you remain dissatisfied, however, you must write to the hotel’s general manager within 28 days of the end of your stay giving your booking reference and full details of your complaint. If you have any complaints concerning any services we provide, you must inform us straight away in writing and in any event within 28 days of the end of your stay. For all complaints and claims which do not involve death, personal injury or illness, we regret we cannot accept liability if you fail to notify the complaint or claim entirely in accordance with this clause.
When you book with us, you accept responsibility for any damage or loss caused by you or any member of your party. Full payment for any such damage or loss must be paid direct at the time to the hotel or other supplier. If you fail to do so, you will be responsible for meeting any claims subsequently made against us (together with our own and the other party’s full legal costs) as a result of your actions. The hotel reserves the right at any time to terminate your stay or that of any member of your party due to misconduct, where justified in their reasonable opinion. No refunds will be given. Furthermore, the hotel shall not be under any obligation whatsoever to pay compensation or meet any costs or expenses you may incur as a result of your stay being terminated.
Special Requests and Medical Problems
If you have any special request, you must advise us at the time of booking. Although we will endeavour to meet your requests, we regret the hotel cannot guarantee any request will be met unless we have written to you with specific confirmation that it will. Confirmation that a special request has been noted or passed on to the hotel or the inclusion of the special request on your confirmation invoice or any other documentation is not confirmation that the request will be met. We regret we cannot accept any conditional bookings, i.e. any booking which is specified to be conditional on the fulfilment of a particular request. All such bookings will be treated as “standard” bookings subject to the above provisions on special requests.
If you or any member of your party has any medical problem or disability which may affect your booking, please tell us before you confirm your booking so that we can advise as to the suitability of the chosen arrangements. In any event, you must give full details in writing at the time of booking. If the hotel reasonably feel unable to properly accommodate the particular needs of the person concerned, we must reserve the right to decline the reservation or, if full details are not given at the time of booking, cancel on behalf of the hotel when we become aware of these details.
If you have difficulty walking but do not require a specially adapted room, you may request a room near to reception on the ground floor for easier access. However ground floor or adapted rooms may have limited availability, and cannot be guaranteed to be allocated on arrival. Again it is advisable to ensure that we are fully aware of all circumstances on making the booking to ensure that the hotel has the availability to meet your requirements in full.
Guide dogs are welcome at the hotel, but please make us aware of your requirements at the time of booking.
You are responsible for having all proper travel documents and vouchers. If you are unable to travel or complete a stay by reason of not having proper documents you will not be entitled to any refund and we will not be liable for any cost or expense that you may incur as a result.
