1. Booking confirmation

All bookings will be considered provisional until the hotel receives a signed copy of the terms and conditions and £2,000 deposit. Pre-payment of 50% of the total billed is payable three months before the wedding. Final payment is due 28 days prior to the wedding in cleared funds. If payment is not received, the hotel reserves the right to cancel the wedding and levy a cancellation charge of up to 100% of the proposed invoice total. Any additional charges made on the wedding day (i.e. extra guests, additional wines) are payable on departure.

2. Cancellation

Cancellation charges are as follows once the deposit has been paid:

From deposit date to 8 months prior of the date of wedding 30% of total booking value
Between 8 and 6 months to the date of wedding 75% of total booking value
Less than 6 months 90% of total booking value
Less than one month 100% of total booking value

The Company reserves the right to cancel any booking forthwith and without any liability on its part in the event of any damage or destruction of the hotel by fire of other cause, any shortages of labour or food supplies, strikes, lock-outs or industrial action, or any other cause beyond the control of the Company which shall prevent it from performing its obligations in connection with any booking.

The Customer shall be responsible for the orderly and safe conduct of the wedding and shall have regard to any regulations imposed by any competent authority, and shall ensure that nothing shall be done which will constitute a breach of the law or impossible forfeiture of the Licenses for the sale of wine, beer, spirits or for music and dancing or other permissions attaching to the hotel. The Customer shall ensure that there is no illegal betting or gaming. The Customer shall fully indemnify the Company against any claims, or loss or damage arising as a result of breach of this clause.

We can provide most equipment, however, should you wish to bring your own equipment into the hotel you must insure that it has been tested and is safe to use. Any external suppliers you book in relation to your event, including bands or entertainers must be approved by the hotel prior to the event. The hotel may refuse approval for any reason. No food or alcohol may be brought into the hotel unless you have prior permission. Corkage will be charged at £19 per bottle of wine, £50 per bottle of champagne.
