Early Arrivals and Late Departures

If your arrival is early in the day and you prefer immediate access to your room before the usual check-in time of 2pm, we recommend reserving for the prior night to guarantee immediate access to the room. Similarly, for late departures, reserving an additional night will guarantee the room beyond the usual check-out time of 11am. If you choose not to reserve, we will be happy to store your luggage for you.


Infants under 3 years of age are not permitted. Children over 3 years of age must be advised of at the time of booking so we can accommodate you in the best way possible.

Room Occupancy

Occupancy for our guest rooms is fixed at the time of booking. The hotel will manage any additional guests who would exceed the room’s maximum occupancy. We reserve the right to transfer you to alternative accommodation within our hotel, add a supplement to your bill, or make any decisions we deem necessary in the given circumstances.

Room Availability

Specific rooms cannot be guaranteed, though we always endeavor to meet all guest requests where possible.

Room Keys

Any keys not returned on check-out will incur a penalty charge of GBP 200.00.

Damage to Hotel Property

We reserve the right to charge guests the cost of rectifying damage, caused by the deliberate, negligent or reckless act of the guest to the hotel’s property or structure. Should this damage come to light after the guest has departed, we reserve the right to make a charge to the guest’s credit/debit card, or send an invoice for the amount to the registered address. We will however make every effort to rectify any damage internally prior to contracting specialists to make the repairs, and therefore will make every effort to keep any costs that the guest would incur to a minimum.

Removal of Hotel Property

We reserve the right to charge guests the cost of replacing any items that are removed from the premises without consent. The charge will be the full replacement amount of the missing item, including any carriage charges.
