Booking Terms & Conditions

Any reference to either 'us', 'we' or the' Owner' in these Booking Conditions refers to Wendy Stait & Allen Edmondson. "You" is reference to the person making the booking who is responsible for ensuring all members of the holiday party accept and adhere to these terms and conditions.  So that you understand the basis of the contract between you and us when you book your accommodation, we have laid out as clearly as possible, the conditions on which your booking is made. Nothing in these conditions affects your normal statutory rights.

The property/accommodation referred to being 67 The Maltings, Weymouth DT4 8SP.

1.Your booking. You must be at least 21 years old when you book your accommodation. The home isn’t suitable for Hen or Stag parties. Your booking is made as a consumer and you acknowledge that no liability can be accepted for any business losses howsoever suffered or incurred by you. When we issue our written confirmation to you we enter into a contract with you, which is subject to these Booking Conditions. We have the right to refuse any booking prior to the issue of our written confirmation, and if we do this we will tell you in writing and promptly refund any money you have paid us. You may not add to the party size stated on your booking form without prior consent from the owners. The maximum number of people to stay at the property is 5.

2. Paying for your accommodation A deposit of 25% of the holiday cost and an additional £150 breakage/additional cleaning deposit is payable within 7 days of the provisional booking being taken. At this point your booking becomes binding. The balance of the rental charge must be received by us no later than 8 weeks before your arrival date. Failure to pay the deposit or balance in full by the due dates will constitute a cancellation of the holiday by the holidaymaker. Please be sure to note the due dates of these payments as reminders are not routinely issued. If you book less than 8 weeks before the arrival date, payment of the total cost, including the £150 breakage/additional cleaning deposit is due straightaway.

On receipt of the full balance you will receive the key details and directions.

3. Cancellation of booking by you. The booking deposit is non-refundable. If you do need to cancel, it is important that you tell us, so that we may attempt to re-let your booking and minimise your loss. If we are able to re-let at the same price the balance will be refunded to you. We recommend that you take out a holiday cancellation insurance to protect you against this loss.

3a. Cancellation of booking by you due to Covid. We strongly recommend you take out holiday insurance to cover Covid illness and self isolation. Your booking is non-refundable.

4. Cancellation of booking by us. If we have to cancel your booking in advance for any reason you will be refunded the full amount of the booking. Our liability would not extend beyond this refund.

Any accidental damage or breakages should be reported to the property owner (or their representative) prior to departure.
