A group reservation consists of 10 or more rooms. Group bookings can be held on a provisional basis until 8 weeks prior to the arrival date, at which point the booking must be guaranteed by the lead bookers credit/debit card. The hotel reserves the right to release any provisional group bookings without prior notice.

Charges will be made against the payment details provided at the time of booking. It is the booker’s responsibility to make sure correct billing instructions are provided prior to the guest’s arrival so that we can endeavour to fulfil any such requests. When the hotel is requested to charge any part of the guest bill to a third party card, payment will be taken at the time of booking upon completion and return of a third party payment authorisation form and will appear as a deposit against the reservation. This amount is refundable as per our cancellation terms & conditions.

2. Payments
The hotel reserves the right to carry out security checks when taking payments and can refuse services should we feel the payment method being offered is not secure. The hotel can terminate any bookings made in this instance and is not in breach of any previous contracts.

a. Pre Authorisation
Credit & debit cards may be pre authorised at check in & card details (including C.V.C) will also be entered into a secure field on the hotel system. The amount pre-authorised will be equal to the total room rate for the entire stay and £50 to cover any additional spend. Long stays will have the option to pre-authorise each week or to pre pay the total room rate for the following week on check in. Long stays must settle accounts weekly before pre-authorising or pre paying for the following week. Exceptions where pre-authorisation may not apply are: Pre paid internet reservations (incl. Lastminute.com bookings), Advance Purchase or other pre paid bookings & Company account holders where an extras account is not required. The hotel will complete sale using the pre-authorised amount on the day of departure (Not applicable to long stays). Unused pre- authorised funds will be released by the hotel on the day of departure and may take up to 10 working days to appear on your statement. In your absence at check-out the hotel will charge any unpaid items on your invoice, which are not covered by any pre-authorised amounts, to the card details being held on the system. This will appear as a second transaction. A receipt for these charges will be forwarded via e-mail or sent to the address provided on your registration.

b. Cash
The full total room rate for your stay must be paid on arrival. An extras account can be set up by pre authorising a minimum of £50. You can choose to release funds from the card and pay cash at the required time for these items. When extra charges reach your account limit the account will be suspended until paid. Where no card can be provided an amount of contingency money (£50) must be left at reception with a valid form of photo ID which will be copied and the original returned. Copies of ID will be destroyed after the final invoice has been settled.

Valid forms of ID include driver’s license (photo card), ID card & Passports.

c. Cheques
Cheques are only accepted as pre payment at least 3 weeks prior to arrival at the hotel. If a cheque bounces the hotel reserves the right to terminate any reservations held and will not be in breach of any previous contracts or agreements.

d. Bill Back Accounts
You can set up a credit account with the hotel by requesting a credit application form from reception. Fill in all the details and post to the hotel-accounts department. Credit applications can take up to 28 days to be approved. During this period you must continue to confirm bookings and make payments by previous methods.

Invoices on account must be settled within 7 working days from the date of issue and can be settled by BACs payment, credit or debit card or cheque. Any queries relating to charges on the account must be raised immediately with the hotel or credits may not be issued.

The account holder has overall responsibility for any charges incurred by guests during their stay. The hotel will take notice of instructions for accounts charges made in writing by the booker and will endeavour to carry out these instructions. However in the event an individual refuses to or is unable to settle their part of the invoice the amount owed will remain the responsibility of the account holder and it will remain their responsibility to re coup these amounts from the individual. In this instance the individual will sign the invoice to pass on the charges to the account holder. If an individual leaves without settling and payment can not be obtained from them this amount will also remain the responsibility of the account holder.

e. Third Party Payments
To pre pay for accommodation a photocopy showing both sides of the card being used for payment is required. Information regarding the amount to be processed from the card, the card holder’s name, address, contact telephone number and if any additional charges will also be accepted must be received by the hotel prior to the guests arrival at check-in.

For companies, a 3rd party payment authorisation form must be completed and returned to the hotel 24 hours prior to the arrival date. Forms can be provided upon request from the hotel reception.

At check-­‐in the same card used for pre payment must be presented. If this card is not presented another card must be provided and an additional pre authorisation for the room rate for the entire stay will be processed. This will then be released upon check-­‐out. If a card is not provided for additional pre authorisation, photographic ID must be provided and the facility to make charges to room accounts will be suspended.

Acceptable forms of photographic ID are a passport, driving license or national ID card.

f. Express Check-Out
Express check out is available. Pre-authorisation is required at check in to allow for express check out facilities. If you want to dispute any charge processed during express check out please call reception or send an e-mail to reservations@grimsdyke.com
