Checking In/Checking Out Times

Check In time is from 3.30pm – You are welcome to arrive at the hotel earlier in the day to enjoy the hotel and grounds but unfortunately we are not routinely able to offer rooms for early check in, and we appreciate your understanding of this.

Check Out time is 10:30am – We would be grateful if you could ensure your room is vacated by 10:30am on the day of departure and your final bill is settled.  Once you have checked out, you are welcome to stay at the hotel for the remainder of the day and enjoy the hotel and the grounds.

Occasionally it may be possible to arrange a later check out time for an additional fee but this is only with prior arrangement and agreement.  If the room is not vacated by 10:30am, then an additional charge of £25 will be made as this impacts on the preparation of the room for our next guest.  Should the delay be excessive (beyond 1pm on the day of departure) the charge made will be the equivalent of a nightly rate for that day.



Contacting Reservations

Reservations is manned between 9:00am – 5:00pm. Outside of these times, we ask that should guests need to speak to a member of the Reservations Team to please call: 01200 445581 option 1 and leave a voicemail along with your contact details or you can email: [email protected]
