Terms and Conditions

BOOKING AGREEMENT AND CANCELLATION POLICY

Upon booking we request a deposit of the first night’s accommodation and this will secure your reservation.

Should you need to cancel your reservation could you please email our reservations team at reception@thebayhotel.co.uk. We will only accept cancellation in writing and this must concur with our cancellation terms.

In the event that the booking is cancelled less than 5 weeks before arrival we reserve the right to charge for the entire stay unless we can re-let the room.

Although every effort will be made to relet your room to minimise your loss, we strongly recommended that you arrange holiday insurance to cover the cost of your stay in the face of any unforeseen eventualities.   A company we suggest is Guest First, the contact number is 0845 9080101 or their web link is http://www.guestfirst.co.uk/introducers?cid=4494 .  Please quote our property reference BA27.

During the peak season times it is at our discretion to only accept two night stays at weekends.

No responsibility is accepted for loss or damage of property, vehicles or vehicle contents belonging to any member of the party during the occupancy. Subject to the remainder of this clause, you should use your own insurance policies to claim the full amount of the loss or damage to your property prior to approaching or pursuing The Bay Hotel. We are, in certain circumstances set out in the Hotel Proprietors’ Act 1956 (Act), liable for loss or damage to your property. However, in those circumstances, we are only liable up to the maximum sums under the Act. In all other circumstances, our total liability shall not exceed twice the daily rate charged for your Booking.

The Bay Hotel aims to provide a safe and secure environment for the duration of your stay and where necessary, will take appropriate security measures. If an incident occurs during your stay, resulting in the theft, loss or damage of your property, we will carry out an internal investigation. If we do not feel that your property was stolen, lost or damaged through any fault of ours, our staff or agents, this will be evidence that it was not our fault. In those circumstances, our liability is limited to the maximums under the Act. If an incident is referred to the Police authorities, and they draw the same conclusion as us, this will also be evidence that our liability is limited to those maximums. We shall not be liable, in any circumstances, for any loss or damage to vehicles you bring to the hotel or any property left in them. Neither shall we be liable for any loss of profit, or any indirect or consequential loss arising under or in connection with your Booking. Where we are liable, we will only be responsible for losses that are a foreseeable result of a breach or negligence, but not otherwise. The loss or damage will be foreseeable if it is an obvious consequence of the breach or is contemplated by both parties at the time of entering into the contract.

If due to reasons beyond the control of The Bay Hotel, the accommodation is not available whatsoever, The Bay Hotel will refund your payment or book you into an equivalent hotel, but will not be under any further liability towards you.
