(Porthole Suites Terms & Conditions)
Thank you for choosing to book with the Porthole Suites – we look forward to welcoming you.
When you make this booking you are entering an agreement with us. Please read all our terms and conditions of booking below.

Each Suite is suited to a couple. Ground Floor Deluxe Suites can accommodate 2 adults and 1 child under the age of 17 on the pull out sofa bed. In some other Suites there is a sofa bed which can accommodate one child under the age of 17. We are unable to accommodate more than two (2) adults in each suite due to fire regulations. Any bookings made for more than two (2) adults will not be confirmed. If unsure please check when booking.
We will do our best to deliver good free WIFI at all times. We cannot be held responsible for WIFI system breakdowns/Wi-Fi interruptions, but will resolve any technical issues urgently.
Pets are not permitted.
Cancellation and Insurance
Once you have booked your holiday, our agreement is a legal contract and your deposit is non-refundable.
We ask for 20% deposit to confirm your booking. The balance is payable 2 weeks prior to arrival.
If, for whatever reason you cannot take your holiday and you cancel more than two (2) weeks before arrival we will retain the deposit.
Within two weeks we charge 100% cancellation/non arrival fee and therefore strongly recommend that you take out cancellation insurance, which can be obtained from any good broker.
The Porthole Suites holds insurance for its own interior furnishings. However, for any claims we need to make, we will ask for the excess of £150 to be paid for by the person responsible. Guests’ should hold their own insurance for personal belongings.
The Porthole Suites has a rear garden, however we don’t advise guests to go out after dusk as it is mostly unlit and there are lots of stairs and much of the garden is uneven. If you go out after dusk you do so at your own risk and we cannot be held responsible for accidents.
Non-availability of accommodation
We would only cancel your holiday if your accommodation was unavailable for reasons beyond our control. We would attempt to offer you alternative accommodation; however, if this was not possible or unacceptable to you, then we would refund all monies paid by you for the holiday. Our liability would not extend beyond this refund.
Your accommodation will be guaranteed to you from 3.00pm on your day of arrival. However we endeavour to collect the exact arrival information of each arrival as often earlier check ins can be facilitated. Reception is not always open and we like to make sure that we are here to welcome guests rather than just leave a key.
Please be ready to leave the accommodation by 10.00am on the day of departure, unless otherwise arranged.
Please try to leave the accommodation as clean as possible. If you have made use of any further service for which payment has not been made during your holiday, we will provide you with an invoice which is payable on departure.
We ask guests to be courteous and considerate. Any aggression shown to any member of staff or other guest will not be tolerated and you will be asked to leave; any monies will be retained.
For the comfort of all guests, no music can be played to a volume that can be heard outside your room.
