Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that there is no one size fits all hotel stay. We’re always on hand to answer any questions you may have about your visit, however, in the meantime, we’ve grouped together a list of our most commonly asked questions and their answers to help guide your plans.


Booking Queries

How much is a room per night?

Our rates are calculated on a daily basis and therefore are subject to change dependent on availability and season. You can easily enter the arrival dates in our booking engine and our system will search the best available rates for you.

Why has the price for my stay increased since I checked rates last week?

Generally, rates will increase the closer to the date of your stay and are subject to change dependent on availability.

Are the rates per person or per room?

All prices, unless stated otherwise, are on a per-room-basis, and based on two people sharing a room.

How do I get make sure that I pay the best rate?

Our best prices are guaranteed when booking direct with the hotel via our website by emailing or calling us on 01670 787454. Direct bookers will receive the best rate, the opportunity for a priority room upgrade (subject to availability), and a complimentary cream tea during their stay.  In the event that you need to cancel or modify your reservation you’ll have the flexibility to talk directly to us to make the necessary changes, only when booking direct.

What is the Advanced Purchase Rate (APR)?

The APR offers a discount on the daily rate, with the value of the discount dependent on the booking date. In general, you can save between 10-15% on the cost of your stay.

Please note that this rate is not eligible to be cancelled free of charge and a non-refundable deposit is due at time of booking. If the hotel is notified up to 48 hours prior to arrival, guests may transfer their booking to another date within 6 months of the original arrival date. The rate for the new date will apply and any increase in rate will need to be paid for by the guest at the time of transfer.
