GUEST TERMS & CONDITIONS
Reservations for accommodation by guests (the Guest) are accepted by JJs Management Ltd (the Company/Owner & Agent).
CORONAVIRUS NOTICE: For future bookings we will offer a full refund or postponement if government regulations prevent the holiday from proceeding due to Coronavirus restrictions. We will keep the evolving situation under close review.
The Agreement: The rental agreement is between the Guest and the Owner. The contract is deemed to have been made once the Guest has paid and the Agent has dispatched a confirmation of booking, on behalf of the Owner. The Guest must be over 21 years of age at the time of booking.
Booking: The Guest who makes the booking is deemed to have agreed to these Terms and Conditions will be responsible for all persons included in the booking and should ensure that they are all aware of these Terms & Conditions. The Company reserves the right to decline any booking or refuse to hand over a key to any person who has not complied with these Terms & Conditions.
Payment: Payment should be at the time of booking. JJs always offer free cancellation 24hrs before. However we have the rights to keep the booking fee if No show or cancelled within the 24hr period.
Cleaning: The Guest is responsible for leaving the accommodation in good order and in a clean condition; otherwise a cleaning charge will be levied.of £50 Plus VAT Please note that the convention for JJs Management Ltd is that Guests are expected to leave the property in a similar state to which they find it (reasonable cleaning excepted). Please abide by this convention so we can continue to provide good value for Guests.
Number of People using Holiday Accommodation: The Owner permits the Guest and members of the Guest's party (but no one else) to occupy the property for holiday purposes only. The Guest must declare the correct number of additional Guests during booking and, if this changes, must inform the Agent before the rental commences of any change. No more than the maximum number of persons stated on the website may occupy a property unless by prior written agreement with the Company. Extra charges may be applicable if the number of Guests differs from the number on the booking.
Arrival/Departure: The properties (unless otherwise stated in the property details) are available for occupation from 3pm on the first day of the holiday and must be vacated by 11am on the last day.
Cancellation or Changes by the Guest: Once the Lodge is booked the Guest has entered into a legally binding contract. If the Guest cancels, for whatever reason (including medical and weather related) then no refund of the deposit will be due, and within 7 Days of the holiday no refund of the full balance is due. Cancellations can be actioned by calling emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. In the event that the property is re-let, for the cancelled period, the Agent may at their discretion refund the amount paid subject to an admin fee and any other costs. In the event the cancelled period is re-let for a lesser amount the lesser amount will be refunded.
It is recommended and expected that the Guest will have or will take out a holiday insurance policy (which includes cancellation insurance covering sickness and unavoidable reasons for cancellation) prior to their stay.
Pets: The Guest may only bring such pets as are booked in by the Guest at the time of booking. A charge will be made per pet. Not all properties accept pets; if property details on the website stipulate no pets then this is binding within these Terms & Conditions. Pets must be well-behaved and should not be left unattended in the property. They are not permitted in the bedrooms or on any furniture in the property. If damage or extra cleaning is caused by pets the Guest may be billed for that charge. 'No Pets' in a description may not guarantee that pets have never occupied the property. No garden is guaranteed as secure for dogs even if described as private or enclosed.
Hot Tub: Use the Hot Tub within the terms and conditions which you have signed. Failure to use the Hot Tub within the Terms will result in £150 ex VAT charge to Clean/ Sanitize and refill the Hot Tub at 1450 litres of water.
Rules are No Makeup, No Fake Tan or tanning Lotions, No Smoking, No Alcohol Spillage including Glass smashed or foreign objects, No Bath Bombs or any other substance that may contaminate the water including body fluids.
Guest Responsibility: The supervision of children, babies, dogs and any adults requiring care remains the responsibility of the Guest at all times.
Guests should put all furniture etc back to where it was at the beginning of the rental period.
Guests should not leave any items at the property and, if left, the Owner has the right to charge for the removal, return or disposal of those items.
Damage, Loss, Theft: We use Swikly deposit scheme to use our lodge. Swikly protects the Agent as well as the Guest by securing your imprint of your card into a secure independent platform. Guests agree to inform Owners of any damage or loss however caused, excluding reasonable wear and tear incurred during occupation. Guests should not remove any item from the property. The Owner may ask for reasonable replacement costs. In the instance of damage the Company reserves the right to reimburse the Owner automatically via the payment method provided at booking.
Nuisance: Guests should not cause nuisance or annoyance to occupants of any nearby property.
If, in the opinion of the Agent/Owner, any person is not suitable to continue their occupation of the property because of unreasonable behaviour, damage or nuisance to other parties, the contract may be treated by the Agent/Owner as discharged and the Agent/Owner may repossess the property immediately. The Guest will remain liable for the whole cost of rental and no refund shall be due.
Access: Guests must allow reasonable access to the property by the Agent/Owner for maintenance given reasonable notice.
Wildlife: JJs lodge is situated in a beautiful rural area. Please therefore expect to meet some wildlife, including the odd spider, mouse, bird, fly, bee, wasp or other creature, which may make their way into a property unbeknownst to the Owner. Spiders in particular are not considered to be a pest and consume up to 2000 other insects per year. If this is likely to be a problem, it would be best not to book. (If any of these creatures are encountered, do not panic, but contact the Owner in a calm and reasonable way - but only if the creatures become a serious menace. Otherwise, just open a window or a door and let them out, as this is usually what they prefer.) Owners reserve the right to take no action if they do not consider the existence of the wild life to be a serious threat to health.
Complaints Procedure: If a Guest has a complaint it should be submitted to the Owner or their housekeeper (who is responsible for the management and maintenance of the property) at the earliest opportunity. If the owner does not resolve the complaint it may be forwarded to The Agent who will attempt to resolve it . No complaints can be accepted unless notified immediately and during the rental period as Owners should be given an opportunity to make good the reason for the complaint.
If a complaint cannot be resolved and Guest wishes to take the matter to Court this should be done at the Court nearest to the Owners address. Any assistance provided by JJs Management Ltd in resolving a complaint in relation to your booking is provided on a goodwill basis and as an Agent.
Property descriptions and all details both written and verbal are given in good faith and believed to be correct, but interpretation thereof can be subjective and as such their accuracy cannot be guaranteed. Property details may vary over time from photographs and descriptions on the websites.
Liability: The Agent/Owner cannot accept responsibility for any material loss, damage, additional expense or inconvenience directly or indirectly caused by or arising out of the property, its plumbing, gas, electrical services or exceptional weather.
No responsibility is accepted for loss or damage of property, (including pets), vehicles or vehicle contents belonging to the Guest or any member of the party during their occupancy.
