Terms and Conditions

Online Booking
Rooms can be reserved online through our website with a valid credit/debit card. If our website is showing no availability then please call our reception on 01702351000 to double check as we always keep rooms available. You can book online on other Online Travel Agents like Booking.com, Laterooms.com or Expedia but we can guarantee to beat any prices advertised there. Please note that all OTA’s do not have the rights to pre-charge you for your reservation, you will pay upon arrival at the hotel.


Bookings made via Online Travel Agents (Booking.com, Laterooms.com, Hotels.com, Expedia, Agoda, Trip Advisor and many more OTA’s) and through our own website will be confirmed directly by email. For telephone bookings the Receptionist will confirm the booking verbally by using his name as reference but if you require a written confirmation then a valid email address should be provided for sending the confirmation by email. We require your credit/debit card details, which will be held on file in order to secure the room. Even if the payment will be made in cash on arrival date we still cannot take a booking without a valid debit or credit card.


We reserve the rights to do a Pre-Authorisation on all bookings, (Online Travel Agents Bookings and Direct online or over the phone Bookings). A preauthorisation is a temporary hold of a specific amount of the available balance on a credit or debit card that is provided upon booking. The preauthorisation is not a charge and no funds will be debited from your account, it is a security for us that the card is valid.

*promotions are available only for online bookings,  may not be available all throughout the year and could have been applied to selected rooms only. When you enter the code the prices change automatically, if not then no promotions are available for those dates.

Deposit and Payment

We will ask for deposit if the booking is for more than 1 night or if there are a group of rooms booked together but we may ask for a deposit even for 1 night bookings on special Bank Holidays or Christmas and New Year’s Eve.  Up to 10-30% of the total amount per room will be taken to secure your booking. We accept Visa, AMEX, Mastercard, Switch, Travellers Cheques and Cash. Cheques will only be accepted to pay for deposits for future bookings, not to pay on the day (funds must have been cleared in our bank before check in date) and if supported by a valid cheque card.

Cancellation Policy

Should you need to cancel your reservation, We will require advance notice of any cancellation by 2pm two days prior to the date of arrival. Failure to do so will result in the full price of the stay being charged to your credit/debit card. We operate a very strict cancellation policy. We strongly advise that you take out travel insurance to cover you from any financial loss should you need to cancel within the cancellation period. Cancellation charges are offset against any deposit made and are charged to the card provided for the reservation.
