All reservations must be confirmed with the payment of a deposit. Bed &Breakfast only – a non-returnable deposit equal to the cost of one night’s stay is required on booking. Car ferry + Bed &Breakfast – a non-returnable deposit of £50.00 is required at the time of booking. Deposits are non refundable.
Notice of cancellation must be received in writing.
We do this because the law states:When accommodation has been booked and letters of acceptance exchanged, both the client and ‘The Havelock’ have entered a legally binding contract. In the event of cancellation both parties should endeavour to re-let the accommodation, should they not succeed the person making the reservation is legally liable to pay up to 75% of the total room rate for the period we are unable to re-let. Cancellation within 24 hours of the holiday, 100% will be charged. All deposits are non returnable. No allowances will be made for meals not taken, for late arrivals or early departures. Guests are advised to insure.
For a 1 night stay, full payment is taken on booking and is non-refundable.
For stay of 2 nights and above – the 1st nights stay is payable as a deposit and is non-refundable, thereafter a cancellation charge is applied as a percentage of total booking cost:
56 days or more deposit only
21 - 56 days 35%
7 - 20 days 50%
1-6 days 75%
No show or date of arrival 100%
We strongly recommend that you take out holiday insurance cover, in the event of cancellation through death, illness, redundancy etc, for you or members of your family.
