What is your cancellation and amendment policy?
Cancellation and amendment policy differs from property to property; therefore it is best to contact the hotel directly. If bookings are made online, the cancellation policy will be noted at time of booking. If your booking was made through a ‘third party’ such as travel agent, corporate travel manager or other online accommodation booking sites, any amendment or cancellation will need to go through that channel.
CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT
What will I need when I check-in?
At time of check-in, you may be asked to provide photographic identification. If you are unable to provide such ID, your reservation may be cancelled and you may be liable to pay us an amount equal to the full reservation amount plus any other costs incurred by us in connection with your reservation. A credit card authorisation or cash security deposit of AUD $100 (minimum) is required to cover any incidental expenses. Should there be no outstanding charges, this security deposit will be refunded in full.
Can I arrange an early check-in?
You are welcome to check-in from 2pm, however, should you arrive earlier luggage storage is available and the use of the hotel leisure facilities is welcome. A request for early check-in can be made direct with the hotel, however it is not guaranteed. If you wish to guarantee an early check-in the room must be booked for the previous night.
Can I arrange a late check-out?
Check-out time is 10am (some hotels is at 11am). Should you require a later check-out please contact reception on the day of your departure to discuss. Alternatively we are able to store your luggage while you continue to utilise the hotel’s leisure facilities.
