Payment – Credit or debit card details are required for all reservations. These are held securely in our PCI-DSS compliant system. For ‘advance purchase rate’ reservations, full payment is taken at the time of booking. For ‘standard rate’ reservations, full payment is taken seven days prior to arrival. Once payment is received it becomes non-refundable.

The reservation cannot be amended without penalty and no refund will be issued should you wish to cancel.  Should you wish to transfer your ‘standard rate’ reservation to an alternative date after payment has been taken, credit can be issued if the date(s) of the original booking(s) are re-sold. Credit must be used within 3 months from the original reservation date. Please note that this option will only be available if a minimum of 48 hours notice (prior to reservation date) is given.
