Cancellation, no-shows and changes policy

We know that plans can change last minute or unexpected things can take place but as a small hotel, we believe that it is only fair to others that we make a charge if you cancel at the last minute and don’t let us know in advance.

Best Available Rate

Our cancellation policy requires 72-hours’ notice. Should you need to cancel or amend your booking please contact the hotel by 11:00am 3 days prior to arrival.

Please note all reservations for 7 nights or more a 25% of the total cost of your stay will be taken as a deposit at the time of confirmation which is non-refundable and non-transferable. The 25% non-refundable deposit applies to each night booked and any night cancelled will still incur the 25% non-refundable deposit. The deposit cannot be used as a reduction towards the entire stay if the number of nights have been reduced.

Early Booking Offer Rate

Full pre-payment is required at the time of booking and your credit/ debit card will be charged in advance of your arrival. If we are unable to complete the transaction, your daily rate will revert back to our standard selling rates. Therefore, please make sure you provide the correct contact details.

If the length of stay is reduced to 6 nights or fewer, the booking will revert to our standard Best Flexible Rate.

If you fail to cancel and do not show up, you will be charged for your full reservation.
