2. Amendments / Cancellation

2a. Best (flexible) rate:

Change of Date
There is no charge if you wish to amend your booking, provided that you do so a minimum of 10 days prior to the arrival date, the deposit paid can be held until a new date is booked as long as the new date is no later than 6 months after the original date. Booking on the best (flexible) rate means that rates change therefore your new date may differ in price and charges may apply.

Deposits are non-refundable, irrespective of circumstances, personal reasons or any justification.  Your booking and commitment to this deposit sum and ‘non-refundable’ term is confirmed on payment. However, if cancelled up to 10 days in advance, the accommodation can be re-booked and the deposit will be transferred, on one occasion. The re-booking and arrival must be made within 6 months of the date of the original stay. When re-booking, the tariff applicable is at the time of the revised stay.  If cancelling less than 10 day prior to check-in, your booking cannot be changed.  When cancelling within 48 hours of the date of arrival, the full rate of your stay is due in full.  If this is a dining-inclusive or package rate, additional beds or extras etc, the full sum is due. Where separate dining reservations are cancelled, for non-package guests, this will be charges at £25ppn, or at the full rate if cancelling with less than 48 hours notice.  For third-party items such as floristry or hires, this will also be charged in-full, with any cancellations costs too.  Bookings and associated deposits for bank holiday stays, special offers and package deals (including two-night minimum dates, Christmas and New Year) are non-refundable and non-transferable.

WEDDINGS & EVENT DEPOSITS.  Bookings are confirmed upon receipt of deposit payment, as the the terms outlined in your event planning correspondence.  All deposits are non-refundable, irrespective of circumstances surrounding cancellation.  Simonstone Hall cannot be responsible for any losses arising from cancellation.
