Damage to Hotel Property:
We reserve the right to charge guests the cost of rectifying damage, caused by the deliberate, negligent or reckless act of the guest to the hotel’s property or structure. Should this damage come to light after the guest has departed, we reserve the right to make a charge to the guest’s credit/debit card, or send an invoice for the amount to the registered address. We will, however, make every effort to rectify any damage internally prior to contracting specialists to make the repairs and therefore will make every effort to keep any costs that the guest would incur to a minimum.
It is the hotel’s policy that all our guests have the right to be treated with dignity and respect and as a responsible host we believe that we have a duty to our guests to protect them from inappropriate behaviour. Should any actions by a guest be deemed inappropriate by the General Manager, or if any inappropriate behaviour is brought to the attention of the Management Team, the hotel reserves the right, after any allegations have been investigated, to take action against the guest. Depending on the severity of the guest actions, the Police may become involved at the hotel’s discretion, or guests may be asked to leave the hotel.
We supply a number of toiletries during your stay, which are welcome to use as much or as little as you need. However removing them from site is prohibited, and will result in a £15 charge per toiletry.
We advise you to take out insurance to cover the cost of cancellation and other risks including loss or damage to personal belongings or personal accident. The hotel’s liability for guest belongings is generally limited under the Hotel Proprietors Act 1956.

Anyone found smoking in a guest room will be politely asked to stop as they will be breaking the law. They will also be charged £100.00 to clean the room for subsequent guests.
