Booking Terms & Conditions
When booking your accommodation at our Lake District Guest House Windermere, the following terms and conditions will apply to your booking. They form the terms of a legally binding contract between us and you.
Reservations for rooms are non-transferable and must not, under any circumstances, be sold or otherwise transferred to a third party who is not a member of your group. Unauthorised or unregistered visitors are not permitted in guest bedrooms at any time. Any persons visiting a guest staying at Holmlea are requested to wait outside the house.
Amendment by You: If you need to amend your booking, the deposit may be transferred once only to alternative dates (within 2 months of the original dates) provided we are given not less than 14 days notice of the change. Subject to availability and excluding bookings made for Bank Holiday periods. The room rate may change dependent on the new dates you require. If, however, we transfer your booking due to circumstances beyond our control, we will honour the room rate on the original dates.
Amendment by us: If you have booked a specific room, we will try to ensure that this room is available to you. In circumstances beyond our control, we do however reserve the right to accommodate you in a different room. We will attempt to provide notice of change if possible. If this room is not acceptable, you have the right to treat the booking as being cancelled and we will refund all monies already paid by you and confirm that you will not be liable for any further payments to us. Our liability will not extend beyond this refund.
Cancellation by you: If you cancel 7 days or more before arrival you will lose your deposit, but will not be charged for the remainder of your booking. If you cancel 7 days or less before arrival, or fail to check in (“no-show”), or leave before your due departure date, we reserve the right to charge you for the full balance due for the whole of your booking. Cancellations must be made or confirmed in writing. It is recommended that you take out travel insurance which provides for cancellation cover.
Cancellation by us: In the unlikely event that we are forced to cancel your booking we will attempt to offer you alternative accommodation. If suitable accommodation is not available (or unacceptable to you) then we will refund all monies already paid by you and confirm that you will not be liable for any further payments to us. Our liability will not extend beyond this refund.
Damage and Breakage: We are sure that you will take care whilst you stay with us, and we acknowledge that accidents sometimes happen. We do however reserve the right to charge for any damage or breakages. You will be notified of costs in writing as soon as is reasonably practicable, if the damage is discovered after you depart. We also reserve the right to charge further sums if we are unable to re-let the room as a consequence of the damage.
Smoking Policy: It is against the law to smoke in any area of the house or bedrooms. If you wish to smoke, please kindly do so outside and away from the porch area. A cigarette bin is provided at the side of the house. If we find that guests have been smoking in their room or other areas of the house, then we reserve the right to ask you to leave immediately and the booking cancelled without refund. Whether or not you are asked to leave, we also reserve the right to charge a sum equivalent to one night’s stay if we are unable to re-let the room for 24 hours whilst it is fully aired. You will be notified in writing as soon as is reasonably practicable if evidence of smoking is discovered after you depart.
Pets: Sorry, we do not accept pets.
