That is why we have created our booking promise.

No Fuss, No Hassle, No Problem. 

*Move your booking  - We will help you move your booking to a later date with no fees, if the cost of your new stay is higher than your original booking, then you’ll need to pay the difference, if it's lower we will refund the difference.

**Credit Voucher – If you are not sure when you want to rebook for, we can issue you a credit voucher for the amount you have currently paid for your stay. We will hold the credit safely and securely for you and issue you a credit voucher for you to use when you are ready to book.  The credit vouchers can be used on stays arriving before 31st December 2021.
