Room Booking Terms

These booking terms ('Booking Terms') are between the person or legal entity making the Booking ('You/Your'), and the accommodation provider who delivers temporary accommodation services for the accommodation you have selected (the 'Accommodation') whose address and other details appear above (‘We, Us, Our, Ours’).

These Booking Terms are for the provision of accommodation services ('Booking(s)'), for the accommodation You have selected, as further described in the confirmation sent to You by email (the 'Confirmation'). These Booking Terms are governed by the laws of England and Wales and apply to all Bookings.

By making a Booking You accept to be bound by these Booking Terms and confirm that You are able to enter into a legally binding contract and that You are over 18 years of age.


Bookings are made and a contract between You and Us comes into effect when We accept a reservation from You. A reservation is deemed accepted when We have confirmed Your reservation and received either: (i) a full payment of the total price; or (ii) the payment of any other deposit amount specified at the time of booking as stipulated in Your Booking Confirmation or (iii) a valid payment card successfully pre-authorised for an amount that is no less than the value of any cancellation fee stipulated on Your Booking Confirmation.

A deposit may be taken at the time of booking and the remaining balance will automatically be charged to the booking card details upon check in for your stay, please contact us if you wish to pay your remaining balance by an alternative method.  

When Your Booking is confirmed by phone and/or email, a reservation number is issued and displayed in Your Booking Confirmation. This number must be retained and quoted in all communications should any cancellation or amendment be necessary. Notwithstanding Your rights under the Cancellation Policy set out in Your Confirmation, You do not have the right to withdraw from this Contract.


Prices quoted are correct (unless a Pricing Error occurs) only for the specific number of guests, dates, nights and rooms shown in Your Booking Confirmation.    Prices are quotes in the currency shown in this confirmation.

The total reservation price quoted in Your Booking Confirmation includes the taxes applicable at the time of booking, at the current rate, including without limitation sales taxes, value added taxes or local taxes, which may be itemized separately.  Taxes are subject to changes in the applicable regulations that are not under Our control, provided that such changes were not in the public domain at the time of booking.  

If You have selected booking extras, where applicable the cost of these extras and any applicable taxes may also be added to the reservation total for Your Booking.   

The reservation total price does not include the costs of goods, services or taxes that You may choose to incur later during Your stay (unless otherwise stated).

Pricing Error

On the rare occasion that an error in pricing occurs and we cannot accept your reservation, even after we have issued a booking confirmation, We will notify you as soon as we reasonably can and refund the amount paid in full without any liability for the error or omission. You agree that we will not be liable for any additional expenses you may incur as a result of this error or omission.

Arrival and departure

The latest arrival (check-in) and departure (check-out) times are specified on Your Booking Confirmation and these are check-in between 1500 and 2000, check out is at 1030am. All check-in arrivals must be before 2000.

In the event that you attempt to check-in later than the stated times without prior arrangement, or fail to check-in at all, we may cancel the entire booking and retain any amounts we are entitled to retain as stated in the cancellation policy section of your booking confirmation.   Failing to arrive before the latest check-in time shall be deemed to be a full cancellation of your booking, and the accommodation may no longer be held for you.

Cancellations and Amendments

If You change the number of guests, dates, room nights or room type ('Amendment'), then our prices are subject to change.

Cancellation terms are displayed on our Website at the time of booking, specified on your online confirmation, and set out under the cancellation policy section of the booking confirmation sent to you by email.   

You may cancel your booking yourself by using the link provided in your booking confirmation.  Should you wish to modify the terms of your booking, you must contact us to discuss any other booking amendment.  

If you cancel your booking on or before the cancellation deadline specified in the cancellation policy section on your booking confirmation (the 'Cancellation Deadline') a full refund will be given to you including any booking extras paid at the time of your booking. If the booking is cancelled before 12:00, 7 day(s) before check-in it is free of charge, less than 7 day(s) before check-in the charge is 100% of the total.

If you do not arrive on the anticipated date of check-in stipulated on your confirmation, We are in our right to consider that you have cancelled the entire booking and we shall not be under any obligation to hold the accommodation for you on any other date.

Should you request an amendment that we are not in a position to accommodate, your booking may be cancelled and a full refund given to you, provided that such cancellation or amendment occurs on or before the cancellation deadline, failing which the terms described in this cancellation clause shall apply.
