For standard (flexible) rate bookings, no deposit is needed upon booking, but we do require your card details, which we may pre-authorise for some, or all, of the amount of the stay. For Advanced Purchase, non-refundable bookings, you will be charged the full amount of your stay upon booking. Please note that pre-authorisation is not a deposit, as no monies come to us at this point. Our cancellation policy which, in line with what is stated by most of the Online agency sites, is free cancellation up to 7 days prior to your arrival. If you cancel after 7 days prior to your arrival date, you are liable for the full amount of your stay, and for this reason, we advise our guests to take out appropriate travel insurance. For standard rate bookings, the full payment of your stay is due upon your arrival. No-shows or guests not staying the full duration of the reservation will be charged the full amount of the stay. There is a 2% charge for payment with credit cards. No charges for BACS or debit card payments.
