Terms and Conditions

By placing a booking with @theLodge you (the lead guest) and your booking party (guests) agree to the following terms and conditions. During your stay you agree to abide by these conditions. If you have any questions about booking with us, please contact us before making a booking at arabella@thesalweylodge.co.uk

To place a booking with us the lead guest must be at least 18 years of age. The maximum number of staying guests per room is two as set out on the website. Where the person making the booking is different to the lead guest taking up the occupation, the person making the booking may be held responsible for cancellation, non-arrival and damages. Only the lead guest and the named booking party are allowed to use the property and its facilities, any third party visitors are only allowed access at our express permission.

To secure any booking we require a deposit to be paid in advance, this deposit amount is 50% of the total payable for the booking.

Deposit payments must be 'cleared funds' before a booking can be confirmed. Deposits are only refundable under the conditions set-out here within.

The remaining balance for the booking is due 14 days prior to arrival at the property.

Payments can be made online by BACS transfer or cash deposit.

All guests agree to respect the privacy and peace of all other staying guests and the owners at all times. We reserve the right to cancel a booking with immediate effect if guests are not honouring this agreement or causing a disturbance/nuisance to other guests or the owners.

Booking Information

We provide all the holiday information in email format so it is easy to share. The Lead guest is responsible for coordinating the group members requirements/queries. Please make sure that everyone has all the details agreed. Payments should preferably be made as a single payment (ie one deposit and one for balance). If this is not possible please ensure the group reference is clearly visible on any payment. Please also remember that cancellation charges do apply if individuals in your group cancel their holiday. Insurance is highly recommended for group bookings.
