Terms and conditions for Inverskilavulin Estate

Terms And Conditions

Your Reservation

· All our properties are let on the understanding that the holiday house is to be used as a holiday let and therefore subject to Section 12(2) and paragraph 8 of Schedule 4 of the Housing (Scotland) Act 1988 as amended.

· A contract between you and the owner will come into existence when payment is received, and a booking confirmation is issued showing the confirmed holiday dates. The contract binds you and all the members of your party. It is your responsibility to ensure that all members of your party accept the terms of the contract set out in these terms & conditions of booking. Failure to disclose all relevant information or comply with these terms may lead to termination of the contract & loss of the booking.

· All bookings are provisional and conditional of our acceptance. We will send you an email confirming your booking which will then form part of a contract of the holiday let.

· A non-refundable 10% deposit of the accommodation can be paid at the time of booking as a minimum, if not the full amount. The remaining balance must be paid no later than 14 days before the commencement of your stay. If the balance is not received by the due date, then your reservation will be treated as a cancellation.

· Bookings made less than 14 days before the check-in date must be paid in full.

· All cancellations must be notified in writing. If you cancel your reservation more than 14 days before it is due to start, only 90% of the full reservation amount is refundable. If you cancel less than 14 days before your check-in date, then the full balance remains due and is non-refundable.

· We accept one reschedule of dates per reservation. Please note that the original payment date for instalments will remain unchanged if a booking is rescheduled.  In the case of a reschedule, the total booking amount will remain unchanged or subject to price increases.

· Your booking will not be cancelled by the owner except in exceptional circumstances beyond control. Notification will be given of the cancellation as soon as possible and we will promptly refund all payments made for your reservation or provide alternative dates or lodges. Our liability for cancellation will be limited to payments made to us.

· We strongly advise that you take out comprehensive travel insurance to cover cancellations. If you choose not to, then you accept responsibility for any loss due to your cancellation.

· Gift Vouchers are only applicable for the lodge noted on the voucher.

· Vouchers can be used to contribute to the payment of a longer stay.

· Vouchers cannot be exchanged for cash.

· Gift Voucher Cancellations – We charge 50% of the total voucher value for cancellations up to 1 month prior to your arrival date and 100% thereafter. The rate used for your voucher is depending on the lodge and season of your booking.

Hot Tub Policy for Beinn Bhan & Frances’ Sketch Pad only.

· Please shower before use. Hair, face, and body products should be washed off to avoid clogging the filters.

· We kindly ask guests who wear fake tans to refrain from using the hot tub. The tub water contains chlorine to keep our guests safe which also removes fake tan, which causes hard to remove stains on the tub.

· Please do not use the hot tub if you have ongoing skin conditions or other transmittable infections.

· Please do not allow children under 5 or pets to enter the hot tub.

· Please use swimsuits in the hot tub. Do not use any other type of clothing as fibres from such clothing can clog and damage the tub system.

· When removing the hot tub cover, please ensure all clips, on both sides, have been unlocked first and then the cover is folded into the secure stand.

· The secure stand should only be lifted up or down.

· When you are finished using the hot tub, please replace the lid on the tub and secure all clips back in place. This will ensure the cleanliness of the tub and that the heat remains at 40֯C.

· Please be careful entering and exiting the tub to avoid slipping. We leave rubber mats and slippers to minimise any such risks.

· We recommend that you limit your soaking time to 15 minutes as the temperature is kept at 40֯C.

· Please use the beige towels provided when drying after using the hot tub.

· Please only use plastic cups provided in the kitchen when drinking in the hot tub. Glass can seriously injure or cause death if in the hot tub.

· Do not leave any items around the hot tub such as glass bottles or others. The surrounding area of the hot tub should be always kept clear apart from what is already there.

· The hot water will amplify the impact of alcohol while you are in the hot tub. Please monitor your alcohol intake for your own safety.

· Please seek appropriate medical advice before entering the hot tub, especially if you are pregnant, have heart or lung-related issues.

· Should you be staying for longer than 2 nights, we may arrange a time and day with you to allow us to clean and refresh the hot tub.

· Please note that you enter the hot tub at your own risk.

· If you encounter any issues, please contact a member of staff immediately (details provided on your welcome note in the lodge).
