Cancellation Fees and Insurance
Once you have booked your stay, our agreement is a legal contract and any deposit you may have paid is non-refundable. If you do wish to cancel your holiday for whatever reason, we ask for this to be done in writing by letter or e-mail and it will take effect from the date we receive the notification, we will then contact you to confirm your booking has been cancelled. If you have not received confirmation of the cancellation within 72 hours it is your responsibility to contact us. You will still be liable for the charges that apply.
The charges are as follows:
More than 28 days – loss of deposit
50% – 8 to 27 days
100% – 7 days or less and in the case of no show
This charge is payable by you to compensate us for our estimated losses.
In the best interest of our guests we strongly urge you to protect yourself against these charges by taking out cancellation insurance, which is inexpensive and can be obtained from any good broker.
Changes or Amendments to a Booking
If you would like to change or amend a booking including transferring your reservation to a different date Tudor House will permit to transfer the booking more than 28 days prior to arrival without forfeiture of deposit subject to availability. Less than 28 days before the arrival date is still classed as a cancellation to your original booking. Therefore the terms as per the cancellation charges will apply. Under the discretion of Tudor House it may be possible to amend a booking this will incur an admin fee of £20.
If you decide to shorten your stay you will still be liable to pay the balance due, normal terms will apply.
We would only cancel your booking if your accommodation was unavailable for reasons beyond our control. We would attempt to offer you alternative accommodation, however if this was not possible, or unacceptable to you, then we would refund all monies paid by you. Our liability would not extend beyond this refund.
Your accommodation is available to you from 2pm-6pm on the day of arrival, unless by prior arrangement. Please be ready to vacate your room by 10am on the day of departure, unless otherwise arranged. Please note if you do not vacate your room by this time you may incur additional charges.
