Please note: some policies may vary depending on your room, special offers and other conditions. Please check information at time of booking.


We operate a non-smoking policy throughout. This means that you may not smoke in any public area or in your bedroom. Anyone suspected of smoking in their bedroom will be subject to a deodorisation charge of £100 and may be asked to leave immediately.


All reservations must be secured with a valid credit or debit card. For internet bookings and special offers, advance payment is required. Reservations are not confirmed until you have received confirmation from us by email, letter or telephone. Reservations can only be accepted from those aged 18 years or older.


We accept most major credit cards, debit cards, bank transfer and cash. Sorry, no cheques.

Cancellation & Refund Policy

If you book online through our website, the full amount for your stay will be charged to your card at time of booking.  An amount equal to the first night of your stay is non-refundable.  If you cancel 60 days or more before your arrival date, the balance (less first night) will be refunded to your card.  If you cancel 59-30 days before your arrival date, 50% of the total amount of your stay will be refunded.  If you cancel 0-29 days before arrival date, no refund will be payable.

We highly recommend that you take out travel insurance, available from all good brokers.

Disabilities and Special Needs

We welcome everyone and are committed to providing an excellent quality of service to all our guests and visitors. We have an active inclusion policy for guests with disabilities and are constantly striving to improve our facilities. Currently we are in the process of adding facilities for visually impaired people. Unfortunately due to its age and structure, our property does not have a lift and is therefore unsuitable for wheelchair users and those who have difficulty with stairs.
