We have a 14 day cancellation policy - if your plans change or you want to cancel please cancel within 14 days of your booking.

Alternatively within 14 days to 7 days prior to your booking - if you ring us we will hold your booking for you for a future stay.

We understand cancellations sometimes happen and we do not like taking money from you when you have not stayed, but we also have to remember as you have booked your room then nobody else is able to book it.

We will try really hard to accommodation and help as much as possible.
