When you book we will ask you for a credit card / debit card number and expiry date to secure the booking. We reserve the option of charging one £1 to the card to prove it is a valid card. The balance will be charged in the event of a cancellation or when you check out.
In the event of a “lockdown” being announced or sickness that prevents travel then your reservation will be converted to a Voucher to use at a later date subject to all parties being in good health, we prefer the idea of a “Roll over” to a cancellation. Our CoronaVirus risk assessment is here
We will accept your cancellation without penalty up to a 8 days before your arrival date.
If the booking is cancelled less than 5 days before arrival then a charge equal to the full booking amount will be made. Our preference is always to roll over to a later date where possible. Moving the reservation to a later date and then cancelling is fully billable.
It is always best to book direct for the lowest rates.
At the end of the day we only want to be reasonable and will always engage and discuss specific concerns. Sometimes the best option is to charge for half of the stay and apply the balance at the time you complete the stay.
Gift Vouchers are valid for 3 Months from the date of purchase unless otherwise agreed in writing. Covid and cancellations our usual terms apply.
Any discounted vouchers have to be used within the same season or you can pay the balance to use them at a higher seasonal or day rate.
Moving the Reservation Date to another date and then cancelling will still cause the original cancellation terms to apply.
The block reservation of accommodation for a wedding is covered by the terms for a wedding at Saltcote Place; as such there is no cancellation policy as you have purchased the option to use the accommodation if you are attending a wedding. Any deposits offered or collected or due will be applied to the cost of the cost of the Wedding – any refunds are due from the person/Couple who made the reservation for the Wedding. It is for this reason we strongly urge all couples getting married to obtain Weddings insurance.
In the event you cancel your booking inside the cancellation period we will attempt to fill your room If your room cannot be filled. We will debit your card with the cost of your stay and refund any nights that we are able to let your suite.
We prefer a Roll-over to a now show fee so please give us a call if there is a problem so we can all make alternative arrangements.
Rest assured it is our intention to let your re-suite but you may be able to take a roll-over, by prior agreement for a later equivalent stay.
A roll-over is applicable to a two night or longer break, it is not available on a one night break without a 50% reduction. The roll-over allows for one of the days to be rolled over to November December January or February when used as part of a two night break. As an example a midweek two night break could roll over one night to be used as part of a two night break off season. It could not be used for August Bank holiday Saturday or other peak season or special date in the year such as Christmas, New Year, Mothers day or Valentines day etc.
All calls are recorded to protect both parties.
We are unable to accommodate children under 14 years of age UNLESS they are attending an exclusive use event such as a Wedding or Wedding Anniversary or same family group. The minimum number of guests staying in the house for an exclusive use event is 12 adults over the age of 18.
With regard to any damage caused or loss of amenity (matching items need to remain matching) and if applicable any loss of revenue if a suite is not able to be let or a deep clean is required then you irrevocably authorise payment in full without retention. Failure to pay We charge 8% above the reference rate for late payments.
In the event of a debt collection agency being instructed then Third party fees will be recoverable in addition to charges for late payments.
Eurolocks will need to be replaced and remote fobs for the gates will need to be replaced, the cost of these will be charged at £40
Check in is from 2pm on the day and up to 20:00 hrs that evening, failure to show up or to contact us by 20:00 will be taken as a cancellation and the cancellation policy will be applied. If you want an early check in please call to arrange this, inevitably we will be turning down suites from previous visitors so it is not often possible.
Because it has happened in the past we should mention that if you want to drop off your car or bags early please arrange this at the time of making a reservation, there may be a small charge to cover the disruption of £30. We will need to know what time you will be returning to properly register. We will ensure you know how to then pick up your keys and when to register as we also need to make our own plans for the day.
At certain times of the year (usually from March to November) we operate a minimum of two night stay if it involves a Friday or a Saturday night. We can only do a one night stay from Sunday to Thursday. booking for two nights of a weekend and staying for one will be treated as a cancellation of a two night booking.
Special offers are available on the terms of the specific offer. Offers cannot be combined and can only be used within the season they were offered. A Winter offer cannot be applied or carried over to the Summer or spring unless specifically agreed in writing and will be subject to availability.
