Damages, Breakages and Antisocial Behaviour
Respect, Courtesy and Dignity are the standards by which patrons will be dealt with whilst at our guest house. Unfortunately there are a few who do not treat our staff or property in a similar manner and for those we need these regulations.
You are responsible and liable for any breakages or damages, which you and/or those that accompany you, whether they are staying in the guest house or not, cause to the guest house, accommodation and its contents including the car park and associated parts.
We ask that you report any incidents as they occur. While we do not normally charge for minor accidental breakages we will charge and debit your card for the full cost of all other breakages, missing items and for the replacement and/or making good of any damage. We may also make a further charge of £50 if you did not report such an occurrence.
Additionally there will be a charge of £100 for soiled bedding, towels, carpets, furnishings and décor caused by, but not limited to, vomit, food and drink stains, blood and bed wetting. The guest house will also charge in full for any lost room nights resulting from any such damage and incidents mentioned in these conditions.
Excessive noise, unruly and threatening behaviour and the like which causes inconvenience and discomfort to our other guests and/or staff is not acceptable. Such behaviour will result in the offending person/s being asked to vacate their room and leave the guest house premises but will be charged for their booked stay.
The latest time for checking out is 10:30am on your day of departure unless agreed otherwise at the time of booking.
