Excessive cleaning charge

If excessive cleaning is required after your stay, over and above the normal amount of time taken to clean the accommodation, then we reserve the right to charge you for the extra hours required to clean which will be deducted from the security deposit. The charge is £30 per hour (for the first two hours) then £15 per hour after that. This cost of cleaning and overtime rates are paid to our representatives over and above their designated scheduled (and inclusive) administration.

Apart from normal wear and tear, if our representatives are called out to attend an incident during your stay and it is ascertained that the damage (if applicable) has been caused by you, a call out charge will be payable. This will be deducted from the security deposit and/or invoiced for the repairs/replacement of any such damage or breakage if it exceeds £150.00.

The swimming pool is exclusively for the use of your own party. During the summer season our pool is cleaned twice a week, on Tuesday and Friday. For your own safety the swimming pool will be out of use for a short period of time whilst it is being cleaned and the relevant chemicals are added.
