4. All facilities listed in the hotel details should be available during your stay. However, from time to time facilities may become unavailable for reasons beyond our control. This includes use of swimming pool and leisure facilities at the hotel. Special arrangements and reductions in services available may be necessary as a result of health and safety considerations relating to the Covid-19 virus. As these are outside of our control, there will be no reduction in the price, compensation payable, nor concessions made to your booking.

If you don't have time to enjoy all three activities during your short break, you can come and use it as long as it is within 12 months of your accommodation stay.

We will always try to ensure that there is a good selection of attractions and experiences available. However, as the tourism industry recovers from the impact of the Covid-19 virus, it is likely that attractions and experiences may reopen at different times and may find it necessary to enter further periods of lockdown. As this is out of our control there will be no reduction in the price, compensation payable, nor concessions made to your booking unless we are unable to offer you at least three alternatives for the use of your voucher.
