Cancellation policy 

We strongly recommend that our guests take out suitable holiday insurance, to cover the total cost of their booking in the event of cancellation. To this regard, we will enclose with your booking confirmation some Travel Insurance Options which may be of assistance to you in the event that you do not have an annual travel insurance policy which provides suitable cover.

Covid-19 cancellations

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have relaxed our usual cancellation policy (as outlined below) and in this respect if you need to cancel or amend your booking due to a legal restriction which prevents us or you from fulfilling your booking as agreed, we will transfer your booking (and any sums you have paid to us in respect of your booking, including your deposit) to another suitable date. Please note that our rates vary between seasons and should a higher rate be chargeable at your transferred booking date, then additional costs will be payable. If you have any queries regarding our rates and those applicable to your transferred booking, please speak to a member of our team.

If you wish to cancel or amend your booking because it would be contrary to Government guidance to travel and stay with us (but it would not be contrary to a legal restriction), in most cases our usual cancellation policy will apply. In some limited cases we may be able to transfer your booking to a new date, however transfers will be made at our sole discretion. Please contact us if you have any specific queries in this regard. 

Any cancellations or amendments that are not as a direct result of COVID-19, will be subject to our usual cancellation policy as detailed below.

Usual cancellation policy

On cancellation of a confirmed booking, we will retain your deposit payment. You will remain responsible for payment to us of the total cost of your booking (less any applicable deductions, as set out below). 

Your responsibility to pay the total cost of your booking upon cancellation will be subject to the following deductions:

• Non-consumed items - for all cancellations (with the exception of Christmas bookings), we will deduct 20% from the full cost of your booking to reflect items not consumed during your stay; and

Note: Where you have booked a specific room and you cancel your booking for any reason, we reserve the right to reallocate your room to an existing booking. Where we do this but we are not successful in securing another booking for the same category of room, you will still be responsible for payment to us of the total cost of your booking.

If you are entitled to a deduction as outlined above, we will refund any sums owing to you within 30 days of receipt of notice of your cancellation, or, where the deduction arises as a result of us re-letting accommodation, within 30 days of us securing a new booking.

Any cancellations must be notified to us in writing as soon as possible and, in any event, prior to the commencement of your stay. None of the above deductions will be available to any guest who notifies us of a cancellation after their stay was due to commence.

For the purpose of this cancellation policy, "Christmas bookings" means any booking due to take place (in whole or in part) between 23rd December and 2nd January. 

This cancellation policy applies to direct bookings only. Bookings made via Booking.com will be subject to a separate cancellation policy, as outlined when you place your booking via Booking.com. Please be aware that the most competitive rates are only available by booking direct with the hotel.
