If a guest does not have a valid debit / credit card available the hotel has the right to request a cash deposit of £100.00 (with valid ID) per room which will be returned on check out. The date the pre-authorisation gets released varies, depending on your individual credit/debit card. Upon your check out any room charges, damages or extras will be charged to your card, this will appear on your credit card statement within 3 working days. However if you choose to pay the balance with another credit card or method of payment we will cancel the pre-authorisation and this could take up to 10 working days to clear in your account.
We may retain your credit or debit card details temporarily after your stay has ended and you consent to us debiting such amounts for which you are responsible as a result of any damage caused to your QSF room by you during your stay, or anything missing once you have left. These amounts may be debited from your card without prior notification.
Children under the age of 2 can stay free of charge at our hotel, when sharing a room with a paying adult where a suitable room is available. Availability of suitable rooms is limited, and the hotel does provide a travel cot on a first come first served basis. The hotel will determine whether a room is suitable for the purpose of this offer.
Please note that ALL our bedrooms and public areas are NON-SMOKING (£150 fine applies, which we reserve the right to deduct from any credit card pre-authorisation without prior approval, if we deem to be necessary). If you’d like to stand outside reception and smoke, however, we will give you a lovely umbrella to shelter you from the Lancastrian rain!!
We reserve the right to charge your card without prior notice up to £300 for any damages made to the room or property during your stay.
We allow small well behaved dogs and parents in our Ashton Suite only and this is on a first come basis. We reserve the right to charge a cleaning fee of £50 for any doggy related issues we deem to be outside of “best behaviour”
Parking at the front of our building is free for 3 hours or anytime between 6pm & 11am. These spaces are limited and public spaces. We have secured 4 parking permits for our guests use during their stay which are free. We require a £20 deposit for the permit and permits taken and not returned within 24hrs will incur the full cost of the permit which is £150.
ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE
We do our utmost to make sure hotel rooms are all available from 2pm on the day of arrival, but if you arrive early and there is a suitable, fresh, clean room available, you’ll be the first to know. Rooms should be vacated by around 11 on the day of departure, unless otherwise sanctioned at the discretion of the hotel receptionist.
We will do our utmost to accommodate your requests if there are any. Your room will be held for your arrival until 11.00am the morning following the first night of your reservation. In the event of a non-arrival, we reserve the right to re-sell the room at this point as an empty room isn’t doing anyone any good!
Our rooms are different in style but not in finish. We think they’re all pretty much the best boutique hotel rooms in Lancaster though. During the booking process, should the one you require not be available, then try another one. Please ensure that your booking reflects your requirement. All of our rooms have King size beds. We have only one Twin room.
After your booking has been confirmed, we will send you an email containing your booking reference number and details. Please bring a copy of this (or save it down on your smartphone) and present this along with the credit / debit card used when checking in. You may be required to sign or enter the PIN code at check in, and we will also pre-authorize you card for incidentals during the stay. If the room has been booked on your card, but for another lucky soul, please do let us know so our receptionists are aware of who the mystery guest is that is due to be arriving.
COMPLAINTS OR COMMENTS
We take our guest satisfaction very seriously. Any complaint or comment regarding your stay should be made in the first instance to the hotel’s duty manager at the time of your stay so that we can attempt to resolve it immediately. Other hotels say this, and some don’t always stick to it, but we promise to do our best in getting back to you within 24 hours.
