Terms & Conditions
A group is any party consisting of 10 or more people. Once contacted with a request, we will send you an offer based on our availability. This offer does not confirm the booking. Remember that up until this point, all bookings are subject to availability and we cannot confirm that the offered beds will be available until you confirm the booking. Once you confirm that you wish to proceed with the booking, we will send you an invoice with the booking reference number and methods of payment. By accepting our offer, you are agreeing with the Terms & Conditions stated on this document.
Methods of Payment
We require a 50% deposit of the total amount invoiced to be paid within 5 working days of the invoice date. Please be aware that failure to do so will result in the cancellation of your booking.
The second instalment (the balance) is due at least 28 days prior to arrival on a date indicated by us. You must contact us before that date in order to successfully complete your booking.
We accept the following cards: Visa, MasterCard and Switch. You can call us on +44 (0) 208 600 7500 between 8am and 6pm, Monday to Friday, to pay via our automated phone payment service. For bank transfers we require the bank’s proof of payment to be sent to us within the 5 day limit and at least 5 days before the 2nd instalment is due. Please include the booking reference number on the bank transfer.
Cancellations & Refunds
Once a booking is confirmed and deposit is paid, these rules apply.
For cancellations of a confirmed booking we charge an administration fee of 10% of the total cost of the stay, which will be deducted from the amount paid. The remaining balance will be refunded within 28 days of the cancellation request.
For cancellations done less than 28 days prior to the arrival date, we can’t give any refunds.
No cancellations will be accepted by telephone, only by e-mail or in writing to the Central Sales Office (details below).
