Our Best Rate Guarantee is our assurance that our rates are the better than you can find elsewhere.  As a family business, it really makes a huge difference to us when you do, and so it’s in our best interest to ensure that we deliver on this or make it up to you if we somehow fail to deliver on this – we haven’t had a claim yet.

If, in the unlikely event that you find a better, publicly available, qualifying rate for a directly comparable stay (see terms and conditions for Best Rate Guarantee) within 24 hours of making your reservation, we’ll match the lower rate and discount it further by 10%.
