TERMS & CONDITIONS
We look forward to welcoming you to Finch Cottage. When you make your booking, you are entering into an agreement with us. Please read our terms and conditions of booking below.
Arrival and Departure
Check in is available from 3pm to 7pm (15:00 to 19:00) on the day of arrival. Check-in times outside of those specified must be agreed and confirmed with us prior to arrival.
We ask that you please vacate your room by 10.00am (10:00) on the morning of departure.
Full payment of the reservation will be debited from the credit or debit card provided at the time of booking or shortly after. If you are unable to secure the booking with a credit or debit card, then we require payment by PayPal for the full amount of the stay. We will then send confirmation once the money has cleared.
Bookings made online or via online travel agents may be subject to differing terms and conditions in force at the time of booking. This is to protect your security in carrying out the booking and providing credit card details over the internet.
Cancellation by the Guest
If cancelling a booking, we offer guests a full refund 3 days prior to arrival. If cancelling within a 3-day period prior to arrival, no refund will be given however, please note that due to the ongoing changes in Government restrictions due to Covid-19 we will assess our refund policy on a booking by booking basis).
We are a small business with just three rooms, so cancellations can have a big impact on us, especially if we have turned away potential guests in favour of someone who has already booked and who then cancels. We do, however, appreciate that unforeseen circumstances can intervene (such as lockdown restrictions), and in such cases, we try to be as sympathetic and helpful as possible.
Guests failing to arrive, without notification, may be responsible to a charge equivalent to the total reservation price.
We take all Bookings in good faith, as we are unable to judge reasons for change, cancellation or non-arrival. Guests are reminded that no exceptions to the above conditions will be made and that any booking made with Finch Cottage Bed and Breakfast for either accommodation or goods, services, meals or drinks that are pre-booked (verbal or written) forms a legally binding contract. For this reason, we advise that you take out a suitable insurance product to cover against unexpected costs such as cancellation fees. In addition, we may take legal action, through the Courts, to recover any outstanding debts.
Cancellation by Us
Should it become necessary for us to cancel a booking we will contact you immediately. Any payments made will be refunded in full.
Car parking outside Finch Cottage is available for guests. We have the parking capacity that allows for one car per rented room (3 cars total). Cars parked here are at owners risk.
Change of Room
If a booking is taken out for a specific room and the room reserved is required to meet a specific guest needs or rendered unusable via circumstances beyond our control, we reserve the right to transfer the booking to an alternative room of similar quality.
Damage and Breakages
Please take care of our home and properties. You are responsible and liable for any breakages or damages which you cause to the accommodation or its contents. Please report these as soon as they occur, especially if you accidentally spill something – it’s much easier to clean if we know what it is and act quickly. We do not normally charge for breakages, but we reserve the right to charge for repair or making good if the damage is significant.
You have access to the cottage and your room 24 hours a day throughout your stay using a set of keys given to you when you register on arrival. You have full responsibility of these keys for the duration of your stay. Lost keys will be charged at £30.00 per set.
