We will do our utmost to re-let the room, and if we are able to do so then the only charges you will be liable to pay will be any expenses we incur in re-letting the room.

Failure to give notice or if less than 48 hours notice is given, this will result in our tariff being applied in full.

When you book we will ask you what time you expect to arrive. If you subsequently you envisage arriving at a different time could you please let us know on the day before you are due to arrive.

On departure all guests must settle their bill, unless prior arrangements have been made at the time of booking with the Guest House to invoice a company or firm. It is the responsibility of the guest to provide any purchase requisitions or order numbers that may be required and the invoicing address.

In the event of a cheque for payment being returned unpaid, we will seek recourse from the drawer for the full amount and any expenses we incur.
