Additional persons sharing a room are charged extra. Infants under the age of two stay free when sharing with two adults; a single supplement applies when only one adult is in the room.

High season is from May 1st to September 30th inclusive. Low season prices apply at all other times except on Bank Holiday weekends, between Christmas and New Year, at Easter and during local and national events. Please call or email to confirm rates.

Online booking rates are adjusted accordingly.

All prices are subject to availability and our offers, packages and pricing will fluctuate depending on availability and demand at any given time. All prices are subject to change without notice.


Reservations may be confirmed with valid Visa, Visa Debit, MasterCard, Maestro or American Express card details (not Diners Club). All reservations are confirmed with a booking reference which you should keep a copy of. We reserve the right to charge up to the equivalent of your first night’s accommodation cost as a non-refundable deposit.

At all times during the booking process, you will be advised to ensure the accuracy of your booking details (guest details, booking dates, room type(s), room rate(s), number of guest(s) and add-on(s) etc.). We cannot be responsible or liable for errors in booking details. The named guest on the Booking Confirmation must include the person staying at the Hotel otherwise we reserve the right to cancel the booking.

For the avoidance of doubt, your reservation price does not include any incidental charges which you may incur during your stay (including, by way of example only, in respect of your use of the Hotel’s bar and mini-bar facilities and the costs of external telephone calls from your room). Such charges will be payable by you on your departure and, in the event that you fail to pay any such incidental charges, it is a condition of your contract with the Hotel that you irrevocably authorise the Hotel to debit your credit or debit card for the amount of any shortfall.

All reservations are accepted subject to availability.


Guest rooms are available from 2pm on the day of arrival. We ask you to check out by 11am on the day of departure, although late check-out may be available as an extra or on selected offers or promotions.


On arrival you may be asked to produce a valid credit card for the Hotel to take pre-authorisation. If you will be settling your account in cash or with a debit card, you will be asked for a deposit to cover the cost of your room for your stay. Please note any extras which you may incur in the Hotel may not be chargeable to your room account.

The Hotel reserves the right to use the guest credit card details to deduct from their account any unpaid outstanding balances e.g. late room charges, fumigation of the bedroom, damage charges etc.

Please note that if you intend to pay cash then we may require government issued photo identification and may retain a copy during your stay.

Guests are advised to read their Welcome Letter and the Room Guest Pack on arrival for information about the Hotel and important safety information.

The Hotel accepts payment by Visa, Visa Debit, Maestro, American Express and Cash (GBP only). We do not accept Diners Club. All rates quoted are subject to availability and inclusive of VAT at the current rate unless otherwise stated. Rates quoted cannot be used in conjunction with any other discount, offer or promotion. Supplements will be applied automatically for single and family room occupancy, or if you upgrade to a suite.

Credit card transactions completed at the Hotel may have an administration surcharge of added to the total bill.


Gift vouchers to be used should be presented on check-in or before paying for a meal.


All deposits paid are non-transferable and non-refundable in the event of a cancellation.

For cancellations less than 28 days prior to the due start date, 50% of the accommodation originally booked will be charged and if the booking is cancelled within 14 days of the due date of arrival 100% will be charged. We recommend you consider taking out suitable travel insurance, if necessary.

Promotion rates may only be cancelled in accordance with the specific terms applying to that rate which will be advised on the promotion.

  • cancel your reservation and receive a full refund of any monies which you have paid to in respect of your reservation (please note that we shall not be liable for any sums which you have paid to any other persons in connection with your reservation).
    For the avoidance of doubt, we shall have no further liability to you for any changes to or the cancellation of any stay with us.


In the unlikely event that the Hotel does not, for any reason, have the required number and/or types of rooms available as per the booking, the Hotel reserves the right to relocate you to an alternative Hotel of similar standard in similar locality. The extra and reasonable accommodation expenses incurred for equivalent accommodation (for the first night only) shall at the Hotel’s discretion, which will normally be exercised in favour of you, be borne by the Hotel. The acceptance of this obligation (which will not release you of the obligation to pay Hotel the relevant Charges) shall be in lieu of all other liabilities or obligations, which are hereby expressly excluded.

You acknowledge that the Hotel accepts no liability for any loss or damage suffered by or caused to you in consequence of the relocation.
