Bookings made within 7 days of arrival are non-refundable. In the event of a cancellation we will charge the processing cost of both the credit card transaction and refund, currently 2% of the amount processed.

All tariffs are subject to change, within one week of arrival. We reserve the right to alter rooms allocated if necessary. No refunds/reductions will be given for meals booked and not taken. We are relieved of all liability should the hotel accommodation not be made available due to circumstances beyond our control and the deposit will be refunded in full.

Hotel Prices

STRANDHOUSE publishes a tariff every year. This is a guide to the price of a room by type and season but it is subject to change depending on the demand on any given day, so the price may go up or down from the tariff price. The tariff is calculated with VAT at 20%. If there is any rise in the rate, an increase may be applicable.

We as the proprietors reserve the right to levy a £100.00 charge for materials and labour to clean the fabrics and furnishings and any additional charges for the replacement of our property if it is damaged through burn marks due to cigarettes. Further charges may be incurred if the room has to remain empty to carry out further cleaning/remedial work and if further bookings have to be cancelled as a result due to smokers ignoring the hotel rules.
