You must be at least 18 years old to make a booking 

Deposit:

A non-refundable deposit of £20.00 per room is required in order to secure your booking request. No refund of this deposit is made due to cancellations.

We will send you a confirmation letter, by email or by post, upon receipt of the deposit.

We reserve the right to ask you to pay some or the entire price of your booking in advance.

Balance:

As we do not have a bank card facility at home, the balance of payment, with cash or a cheque, is required upon arrival on the first day of your stay.

Please make cheques payable to K. Watson.

By entering into a contract with us, you accept responsibility for paying all charges due to us under the contract.

General:

A legally binding contract is entered into between Lynn & Kevin Watson and the guest, on the issuing of a confirmation of receipt of deposit for available room accommodation.

No person who is not a party to our contract with you shall have any rights under or in connection with it.

Making your booking:

You may request a booking in person, by telephone, by e-mail, or in writing.

You may only make a booking on behalf of someone else if you are authorised to do so and provided that you agree to be responsible for that person's compliance with these terms as if they were the person making the booking.

Check in and check out:

Your room will normally be available for you from 4pm on your scheduled day of arrival.  Please let us know if you are likely to arrive after 9pm.  Unless we specifically agree otherwise with you, you must vacate your room by 10:30am on your scheduled day of departure.  If you do not do so, you will be charged for one further night's accommodation.  Room keys must be handed in on departure.

Special Requirements:

If you have any special requirements (diet or physical disability) please let us know at the time of booking.  We will endeavour to accommodate your requirements, but our ability to do so is dependant on what these are and on the availability of suitable disability aids.

Children:

Please let us know if you wish to include your child in the booking as we may not have suitable facilities to cater for your child / infant.

Rooms are fitted with smoke detector alarms and smoking is not allowed in any of our rooms.  If you smoke in your room, there will be an extra charge made to you for an additional £100 to cover our costs to have the room cleaned.

Liability:

We do not accept any liability whatsoever for damage to your property or injury to you or other members of your party whilst on our premises.

Hutton Lodge is our family home and, as such, we respectfully ask that due care and consideration is taken when staying with us and to leave the room in the same condition as found on arrival.
