Our terms & Conditions
Check-in: You may check in between 3:pm and 8:pm however we would be very grateful if guests could provide us with a time window when you think you will be with us so we do not make any arrangements during your arrival window. We are also happy to offer check in from 10am to 12 noon, subject to the room being available, but please call or email us to esquire first (the charge is £15 per room for early check in). We request guests to allow travel delays into their arrival schedule to get to us before 8pm. Once guests have checked in you may come and go as you like with your own access keys. Please would you also keep us informed by phone text or email if your arrival time is likely to change.
We ask guests to check out of their rooms by 10:30am please as a small business we do not employ lots of staff and we have to get the house ready for the next guests arrival. Believe us, it’s a lot more involved than you may think! If we can allow a later check out time, we charge an additional £15 per hour per room, or part hour to cover out extra cost. Please check with us as you check in.

It is against the law to smoke in a building. Out of fairness to the next guest and to maintain our integrity as a clean and non-smoking establishment, please do not smoke in your bedroom. If we deem there to be a smell of smoke after your departure which disrupts or affects future bookings, we will make a charge to compensate us for this. It is usual for us to charge a minimum of an amount equal to a further night’s stay plus the cost of cleaning the room.
