For reservations cancelled within 7 days of arrival, the first night charge, plus tax, will be billed to your credit card on file.
Reservations made within 7 days of the arrival date are considered non-cancellable and will incur a one night charge if cancelled. Guests who fail to cancel their reservation and do not check-in on the day of arrival will be charged for the first night plus tax.
Group, Holiday or Special Event Periods
Reservations that are made with a group booking or during a special event or holiday period are subject to a longer cancellation policy. This will be stated on your confirmation. If you have any questions, please contact the manager about your cancellation policy.
