Special Requirements or Requests 

Unfortunately, many of our hotels are not suitable for guests who are confined to a wheelchair or have limited mobility or unable to manage stairs. All hotels offered by Royal Hotels do have at least one customer lift that are regularly maintained, however in the event of mechanical failure all guests must be able to manage using the stairs within the hotel whilst repair work is carried out. Royal Hotels accept no liability for inconvenience or loss of enjoyment whilst the lift is out of order.
We do accept requests for guests with walking difficulties, such as low floor bedrooms and will always endeavour to meet individual requests, however on occasions this may not always be possible. Please note, although customers can request a room type for their stay, we cannot guarantee the room number in any of our hotels at the time of booking.


Deposits are £60 per person for the hospitably, the stayover and full packages and £100 per person for the VIP Experience package. Payments can be made in instalments to settle the balance of your booking (minimum instalment is £100), however the full balance is due by the 1st May 2020. Payments can be made by calling our reservations team on 01253 420 421.

Deposits are NON REFUNDABLE.


Cancellation Insurance protects your package payment in the unfortunate event of you needing to cancel your holiday due to illness. If you choose insurance, a payment of £20 per person is payable immediately upon booking. Your deposit and travel costs are not covered and are Non-refundable.


Subject to you informing us no later than 24 hours before your departure date, and in due course forwarding a confirmation from your doctor that you are unfit to travel due to illness, we will refund the cost of your holiday, less your deposit, non-refundable train cost (if travel booked) and insurance premium.

Our cancellation charges comply with that recommended by ABTA. If you require a more comprehensive insurance policy, you should take this out privately. If you have a private insurance policy (e.g. Annual Holiday Insurance with your bank), you will be required to claim any losses incurred by cancellation from your insurance provider.

Should you decline the cancellation insurance then the following cancellation charges apply:

  • 35 Days or more prior to arrival – Deposits Only
  • 34 – 21 Days before departure – 50% of total cost
  • 20 – 1 Days before departure – 75% of total cost
  • Day of departure or later – 100% of total cost

If choosing our insurance, a member of the reservations team will contact you for additional payment after your initial booking has been placed and to answer any questions you may have.

Confirmation of Payment 

Your booking invoice will be sent to you once payment has been processed, at which time all terms and conditions come into immediate effect. If you have requested a copy by email, you should receive this within 24 hours. If you have booked by telephone and have requested your booking confirmation be sent by post, you should receive this within five working days. It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure they have received their booking confirmation and reviewed that all the information provided is correct (guests names, room allocation, meals etc).

If you have not received your booking confirmation within the times stated above, please contact the office so we can arrange for a duplicate copy to be sent to you. Prices and availability are correct at time of going to press although we reserve the right to change any prices online or in our brochure at any time without prior notification. If the price of your stay is to increase or decrease after you have booked, your holiday cost will be unaffected; Royal Hotels will always seek not to increase the price of your booking after your invoice has been issued. No refunds will be given if it is discounted later.



If rooms are booked under occupancy, we reserve the right to amend the room type to match the quantity of the persons in the room. Children (aged 0-18) must be accompanied by one full paying adult on all packages.
