Terms and conditions

Please ensure you read these in full before booking.

The descriptions on this website have been produced as clearly and accurately as possible. The Perfect Stay reserves the right to make changes, in the interest of operating requirements and continued improvements.

Bookings can only be made by persons over the age of 21.

The preferred method for making a booking is via the Booking Request Form on the website. Bookings can also be made by telephone on 07775 907407. A provisional booking request is held for 7 days until a deposit payment of 30% of the full hire price for the property is received, together with a completed and signed Booking Form, you must indicate at this stage if you require the inclusive parking arrnagement.  Payment method details will be provided with the details of your provisional booking, payment by Credit Card will incur a 2% charge of the total booking cost.

A security deposit of £100.00 is payable in advance of the booking. The Perfect Stay will hold the security deposit during your stay and will return this to you within 14 days following the departure date, but may make deductions if any specific cleaning requirements, damage or loss is suffered by The Perfect Stay which is caused by the hirer or any party member. If damages or losses are in excess of the security deposit you will have the shortfall paid to The Perfect Stay within 14 days of you being notified of the amount recoverable by The Perfect Stay.

On receipt of the deposit, a confirmation letter will be sent to you by post (e-mail if you are overseas), confirming the details of the booking. The deposit is non-refundable, unless The Perfect Stay cannot confirm the booking for any reason, in which circumstances the deposit will be returned in full.

If the 30% deposit is not received with 7 days of the Booking Request Form being completed and The Perfect Stay have made reasonable efforts to contact you, without success, the period of the provisional booking becomes vacant and will be available to let to another hirer.

If a booking request is made less than 6 weeks before arrival, full payment including the security deposit is required at the time of booking .

If you need to cancel your booking due to unforeseen circumstances, you must inform The Perfect Stay in writing immediately. In all cancellation situations the deposit is forfeited.

If a cancellation is made by the hirer after the deposit is paid, we will make every effort to re-let the property, but you will remain liable for the balance of monies for the hire of the property if we are unable to re-let the property for the original agreed period. We strongly advise you to take out cancellation and travel insurance for your booking with The Perfect Stay.

The total payment of the balance for your booking and security deposit is due six weeks before your arrival. If this is not received by the due date, this may result in cancellation of your booking and loss of deposit.

If a cheque tendered in settlement of any amount due under these terms and conditions is not honoured on its first presentation we may treat the booking as having been cancelled by you.

If by noon on the day following the arrival date no hirer has occupied the property by that time and we have not agreed a later time of arrival with you we may treat the booking as having been cancelled by you.

The Perfect Stay cannot accept any obligation or liability for any alteration or cancellation we may need to make, which is caused by circumstances outside our control. The hirer will be advised as early as possible, where possible an alternative date will be offered, which if not acceptable to the hirer will entitle the hirer to a full refund of all monies due. The hirer will not as a result have any further claims against The Perfect Stay.

The Perfect Stay try to take all reasonable steps to accommodate any proposed changes to the original booking dates, if a cancellation is made after the balance has been paid, this will result in a loss of all monies paid.
