If you wish to pay the balance via bank transfer, please process at least 5 working days in advance to clear before your arrival date.
We understand sometimes plans change so if you need to amend or cancel a reservation please let us know by telephone or email and we will confirm back in writing. Bookings cancelled 14 days or more notice prior to arrival will be refunded minus an admin charge of 8%. Bookings cancelled up to 7 days before arrival will be charged 50% the total cost of the booking plus booking fee. If a booking is cancelled less than 2 days before arrival or in the event of a no show, the full total price of the reservation will be charged plus booking fee. Please note departures earlier than scheduled are also treated as a cancellation, therefore the Cancellation Policy will apply.
