BOOKING TERMS AND CONDITIONS:
24 September 2020: With current global pandemic in mind, we've updated our booking terms and conditions to give you extra peace of mind. We want your booking experience to be as flexible as possible, so we've introduced a ‘no-strings’ cancellation policy that gives you the option to cancel your room at no charge, and for bookings described as Advance Purchase Rate ‘non-cancellable’ the option to transfer your booking to a date 12 months from your arrival date.
You agree to allow a member of the Holdsworth House team to take your forehead temperature on arrival. This is an unobtrusive and quick procedure done with a digital infra-red thermometer, without touching you. Anyone with any symptoms will be asked to re-arrange their booking for a future date and this will be done free of charge. You agree to comply fully with all our Covid-19 procedures.
Please note that the revised and more flexible cancellation policy applies to bookings made directly with Holdsworth House only. Guests who booked via online travel agents or third-party travel professionals are advised to contact their booking provider for information on their policies. Any amendments or cancellations will be received via the original booking channel.
Until further notice, as long as you notify us 48-hours prior to your arrival date, you will be able to move your booking to another date (subject to availability) or cancel your booking and receive a full refund. Advance Purchase Rate bookings, whilst non-refundable, can be transferred to a date 12 months from your arrival date.
Check-in is from 2.00pm and check-out is 11.00am
You’ll need a credit card to secure your booking
All extras must be settled in full prior to departure
ATTENDING A WEDDING: When a couple books their special wedding day at Holdsworth House Hotel, we make them a promise that theirs will be the only wedding celebration on that day at the hotel. As such, it is with genuine regret that we are unable to accommodate honeymooning couples or guests attending weddings at alternative venues on the same night as a wedding taking place here. Holdsworth House is an intimate setting and many years' experience has shown us that having two wedding parties in the building can create difficulties, and sometimes distress, for both parties. This is why we guarantee couples marrying here that they and their guests are the only wedding guests permitted access to Holdsworth House for any 24-hour period. Please note, this access is not limited to the bedrooms; it also includes the public areas and our gardens. Any booking made through a third party website, which is found to be connected with a wedding taking place at another venue, will be immediately cancelled by Holdsworth House Hotel, refunded of any payments made and the guest will be duly notified at the earliest opportunity.
OPTIONAL SERVICE CHARGE: The optional service charge is a payment that recognises and rewards all Holdsworth House employees when you receive outstanding guest service. The optional service charge is 5% of your total bill value. It can be removed immediately from your bill at your request. The optional charge fairly rewards the whole team, regardless of their role, for delivering outstanding guest service – so all members of Holdsworth House will receive it. If you desire, you can still give a cash tip, which will also be shared amongst the Holdsworth House team.
STANDARD RATES: (Bed and Breakfast per room per night including VAT.)
