1.1  General

These terms & conditions govern all bookings made with the Company (“Regentas Stays Ltd”, “Us”, “We”).

You (the booker and all members of your party collectively called “the Guests“) accept these conditions yourself and on behalf of all members of your party whether you are booking as a guest or on behalf of others.

Any property occupied is strictly on the basis that the accommodation is for temporary use only and that no right to remain in the property after the end of the booked period exists for the person or persons who occupy the property. All persons will vacate the property at the conclusion of the booked period.

In respect of bookings relating to accommodation not operated by us, we act as a managing agent on behalf of our preferred suppliers. All such bookings are subject to these terms & conditions and they may also subject to additional conditions, of which you will be notified at the time of booking.

Important Note: Any occupation under this agreement does not confer exclusive possession on either the client or guest nor to create the relationship of landlord and tenant between Us and Guests. Guests will not be entitled to any tenancy, or any short assured or assured tenancy, or to any statutory protection under the Housing Act 1988, or to any other statutory security of tenure now or upon the determination of this agreement.

1.2  Your Booking

Any booking, howsoever made, will only come into existence when payment has been made in full and your confirmation has been dispatched by us.

Restrictions may apply in certain locations including, but not limited to, minimum night stay and age restrictions; you will be advised of these at the time of booking where applicable. We reserve the right to refuse any booking at any time.

All guest names and contact telephone numbers are required at the time of booking, including whether they are adults or minors.

As soon as your confirmation and invoice are received, please check the details carefully. If anything is not correct you should tell us immediately. We cannot accept any liability if we are not notified of any inaccuracy in the documentation. If there is an error in the confirmation or invoice, we reserve the right to correct it as soon as we become aware of it and will do so within 7 days of issue of the confirmation or invoice or, if your arrival date is within 7 days of booking, no later than 24 hours before your arrival date.


1.3  Special Requests

We will endeavour to do everything we can to help guests with special requirements. Please ensure we are made aware in writing, of any special requirements at the time of booking. Although we will endeavour to meet any reasonable requests no guarantee can be given that any request will be met. Conditional bookings cannot be accepted i.e. any booking which is specified to be conditional on the fulfilment of a particular request.


2.1  Payment

Payment in full is required at the time of booking unless otherwise agreed.

If payment does not reach us at the required time we reserve the right to suspend or cancel any booking made. Any late payments will result in interest being charged at 4% above the Bank of England base rate for the period concerned.

Payment should be made in Pounds Sterling by:

  • Bank Transfer: bank details are made available during the booking process

  • Credit or Debit card: our online secure payment processor is Stripe.

In extenuating circumstances we may agree for a later payment date, but a 20% deposit to reserve your booking in advance may be requested.


2.2  Security Deposit

A security deposit to cover “additional charges“ (see section 12), including damages, missing items, extra cleaning and further accommodation charges incurred during your stay, may be required and you will be advised whether this is the case during the booking process. This may be in the form of a received payment, or in the case of a debit/credit card may be an agreed pre-authorisation valid for up to 30 days after the last day of the booking period.

In the event of any of extra charges, as referenced above, the guest will be presented with the relevant evidence and will have a 48 hour right to reply. If no reply is forthcoming from the guest during this period, we will assume the guest accepts liability and relevant charges will be applied. In the event that payment under a debit/credit card is declined, or no card details are provided, we reserve the right to invoice the client or guest direct for these charges.


2.3  Payment of Additional Charges

Valid credit/debit card details must be supplied at the time of booking and/or upon arrival at the accommodation to cover potential “additional charges“ (see section 12) unless a cleared security deposit amount has been requested and received. This may be payable direct to the preferred supplier in some instances.

These charges will be deducted from any security deposit held or from a debit/credit card supplied and any balance on the security deposit will be refunded. A written statement of the additional charges will be sent to you in the manner defined in section 2.2 (above).


3  Pricing

The rates we advertise are to the best of our knowledge correct at the date of publication but we reserve the right to change any rates from time to time. Prior to the booking being confirmed rates quoted are based on the rates prevailing at the time but are subject to change. Once a booking has been confirmed we will not change the rate quoted unless you amend the booking or our cost of supplying the accommodation changes as a result of tax changes or currency fluctuations beyond our control. VAT, when applicable, is charged at the rate in force at the time of booking.


4.1  Changes, Extensions and Cancellations

All requests for changes, extensions and cancellations must be made in writing directly to us. Accordingly, if your booking is not confirmed as being changed, extended or cancelled by us you will be liable to pay us the full amount of the previously confirmed booking and the terms of the previously confirmed booking will stand.

We may require you to complete any cancellation or change request through the relevant third party booking website that was used for the original booking.


4.2 Changes

If you wish to change any detail of your confirmed booking we will do our best to make the change. Successful changes are subject to an administration fee of £25 plus VAT per booking which will be payable to us once any change has been made together with any other resulting costs which may result in an increase or decrease in rate depending on the date and length of stay.

All changes of date are subject to availability and the restrictions of our cancellation policy. Should any change be rejected, the original booking will be reinstated. Name changes or child age changes will not incur any charges or administration fee.


4.3 Extensions

If you wish to extend a stay please give us as much notice as possible in order to facilitate your request. All extensions are subject to availability and rate change.

Where notice to extend a stay has been given, we reserve the right to take all additional payments and charges from any credit/debit card used to make the original booking, or an invoice for the extended period will be sent to your billing address and cleared payment must be made before any extension commences. Failure to pay will mean the booking reverts to the original departure date and all persons must vacate the property on that day.


4.4 Cancellation

Our cancellation policy is set out below;

  • We reserve the right to treat an early departure or reduction in the number of nights or accommodation booked as a cancellation and accommodation may be re-let and cancellation charges will apply.

  • Non-arrivals will be treated as a cancellation and you will not be entitled to any refunds.


Important Note: Depending on the reasons for your cancellation, you may be able to reclaim cancellation charges from your insurance company if you have taken out travel insurance. We strongly recommend that clients purchase adequate travel insurance. Regrettably we have to treat any curtailment of your stay as a cancellation.


4.5 Notice Period

Cancellation charges depend on the cancellation notification date and, unless stated differently in any booking confirmation you receive, are as outlined below.

These notice periods also apply to early departures / curtailment of the booked period.

For standard bookings the notice period is 14 days prior to arrival date.

For bookings of more than 28 nights where long term rates have been agreed, should the booking be shortened from the original dates agreed at any time, we reserve the right to amend this rate. In addition to this, where bookings are made for a period exceeding 28 nights but cancelled prior to check in at any point, we reserve the right to charge the 14 night cancellation period to cover declined business and associated costs.


5 Changes by Us

We do not expect to have to make any changes to your booking however occasionally bookings have to be changed or cancelled or errors in information or other details corrected and we reserve the right to do so. If this does happen, we will contact you by telephone or email where reasonably possible. If a change has to be made or your booking has to be cancelled we will, where possible, offer you an alternative accommodation of similar type and standard in a similar location for the same period. If the alternative accommodation is advertised at a lower price, you will receive a refund of the price difference. If the alternative accommodation is at a higher price the new price will be payable. If you do not wish to accept a change or any alternative accommodation offered or we cannot offer you a suitable alternative accommodation, you may be entitled to cancel your booking and receive a full refund unless this is the result of an event beyond our control (‘force majeure’).

You should tell us as soon as possible whether you wish to accept any change or alternative accommodation offered or alternatively if you want a refund. We are not obliged to provide any reimbursement or compensation.

We regret that we cannot accept liability for any loss, damage or additional expense where the booking needs to be altered or cancelled or we are unable to perform our contractual obligations as a result of events of ‘force majeure’. In these terms & conditions ‘force majeure’ means any event which could not have been reasonably foreseen, or the consequences could not have been reasonably avoided, by us or the suppliers of the relevant services in question, even with the exercise of all due care. Such events may include war or threat of war, civil strife, terrorist activity, industrial dispute, natural or man-made disaster, fire, adverse weather conditions and all similar events outside our or the relevant suppliers’ control.

Nothing in these terms and conditions shall affect your statutory rights if you are a consumer.


6  Insurance

We are not responsible for the theft and/or damage of your personal belongings during your stay in any accommodation booked. Therefore you are advised to ensure you have appropriate insurances in place. In addition, you are advised to ensure you have appropriate travel insurance to cover cancellation and medical expenses.

All content on our website (and/or other means of promotion or advertising) is published in good faith but you acknowledge that we cannot check the accuracy of all information provided by our preferred suppliers for whom we act as agent.

8  Liability

However, nothing in these terms and conditions shall affect your statutory rights if you are a consumer. Nothing in these terms and conditions limits or excludes our liability for death or personal injury resulting from negligence; or for any damage or liability incurred by you as a result of fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation by us, or any liability that cannot by law be excluded.

If you are booking for, as, or on behalf of a business or business employee, our total liability in contract, tort (including negligence or breach of statutory duty), misrepresentation, restitution or otherwise arising in connection with the performance or contemplated performance of your booking shall be limited to the fees paid to us under your booking.
