Before you arrive
We request that you pre-book any spa treatments, watersports activities and/or The Den to avoid disappointment. The Den is open term time and holidays, Monday to Friday for Resort guests and locals. We also request that you make us aware of any extras you require in your house such as cots, high chairs or extra beds. Should we not be informed of this before arrival we cannot guarantee that these will be made available to you. If you are bringing a dog with you then you must inform us prior to arrival, failure to do so may result in your booking being terminated.
Pre-Authorisation Security Deposit
A pre-authorisation security deposit of £250 per lodge and £75 per apartment will be charged to a credit or debit card on arrival. This is to cover any damages or losses to the property that may be caused by you or your party during your stay.
What is a pre-authorisation security deposit?
It covers any damages in the property during your stay, or any excess cleaning. The final costs for any damage or cleaning may not be limited to £250.
Will you take money without informing me?
No, we will always explain to you what will be taken from your account & why – prior to taking money we will attempt to call you and will always write to you via e-mail & post.
Do you actually take the money out of my account?
Yes, the money is taken as a deposit and debited from your card. You will be unable to spend this money while you are staying with us.
When will the money be returned to my account?
It can take between 7-10 working days from your date of departure but it varies dependant on your bank.
Can you accept a cheque?
No, we’re unable to accept a cheque or cash under any circumstances. The pre-authorisation must be made via card.
Can you accept a lesser amount than £250?
Unfortunately we cannot, £250 is the set amount for the pre-authorisation security deposit & under no circumstances can we accept less. Your pre-authorisation security deposit isn’t limited to £250.
How can I pay the pre-authorisation deposit?
The pre-authorisation deposit can be taken via credit or debit card.
I am a lodge owner do I have to do a pre-authorisation deposit?
As a lodge owner you would not have to carry out a pre-authorisation security deposit, however, if you book your property for your friends we will request a pre-authorisation security deposit unless you tell us, prior to their arrival, that they don’t need to do this.
What happens if I don’t have the money in my account?
Unfortunately you’re unable to stay without doing the pre-authorisation security deposit. The only other option is that we can take a pre-authorisation security deposit over the phone on somebody else’s card but we’re unable to let a property without carrying out the pre-authorisation first.
