Booking Terms and Conditions
- A valid credit or debit card is required to secure all bookings and will be held as a guarantee – this then constitutes a legally binding contract between you and Shola Coach House. During major events and Bank Holiday weekends we may require non-refundable deposits to secure bookings. Full payment will be required on check-out – we will accept payment in cash (£ sterling or € euro) or credit/debit cards (Visa & MasterCard only - we do not accept American Express).
- Cancellation policy – a small Bed & Breakfast such as ours is clearly affected by cancellations and we ask for your understanding and consideration of our policy. If you need to cancel a reservation please notify us by telephone and confirm in writing.
- Bookings cancelled with more than one week's notice prior to arrival will not incur a charge.
Bookings cancelled with one week's notice or less prior to arrival will be charged the total cost of the booking. Cancellation charges will be applied to the credit/debit card provided at time of booking.
Please note earlier than scheduled departures are treated as a cancellation and the policy above will apply.
- Check-in/Arrival – guests may check in on the day of arrival between 4pm and 7pm, or at other times by prior agreement only. With prior notice we will do our best to accommodate late arrivals, but please note that on the day of arrival, and out of courtesy to other guests, no one will be admitted after 11pm. A complimentary cup of afternoon tea/coffee and home-baked goodies will be served to guests who arrive between 4pm and 6pm.
- Check-out/Departure - rooms are to be vacated by 10.30am on the day of your departure.
- Breakfast time – breakfast is served at a shared/communal table daily between 8am-9.30am unless agreed by prior arrangement.
- No smoking policy - by law we cannot allow smoking in any part of Shola Coach House and we do adhere strictly to this policy. A surcharge of £250 will be applied to room charges for anyone smoking within the house.
- Family policy - we do not have a family room at Shola Coach House and regret we are unable to accommodate babies or children under the age of 18 years unless you are booking all four guest bedrooms for exclusive use.

We must also record the passport number, place of issue and next destination of guests who are not British, Irish or Commonwealth citizens. All guests aged over 16 must complete a registration form on arrival. These records will be kept for at least 12 months.
- Loss or damage – guests will be responsible for the repair or replacement of any breakages, loss or damage caused by them to Shola Coach House property and shall leave the room in a clean, neat and tidy condition.

- Shola Coach House B&B reserves the right to refuse a guest entry and accommodation if, on arrival, we reasonably consider that the guest is under the influence of drink or drugs, or is behaving in a threatening, abusive or otherwise unacceptable manner.
