Arrival and Departure Times
High View Cottage reserves the right to refuse Guests entry outside of confirmed registration times. This is to ensure comfort and an undisturbed evening for our other registered guests. In such circumstances payment for the night already booked will still be payable as we will have reserved the suite for you and will have been unable to let the suite to another party in the period since the initial reservation. High View Cottage considers failure to arrive and register in the correct period as breach of contract and will pursue any sum outstanding in full for all nights reserved regardless of late or non-appearance by a guest(s). Notwithstanding the above High View Cottage will allow use of the room if reserved for the next and subsequent nights subject to the following;Guests who have missed arrival and registration in the period 5pm to 8.30 pm on arrival day will be required to register the next day between the hours of 9am and 12 noon before access is granted. Payment in full for all reserved nights, including the night missed, will be required at registration. If a guest fails to register and arrive at this second opportunity High View Cottage will immediately attempt to relet the room for that and any subsequent reserved nights. No further opportunity to register will be given and breach of contract will be assumed. Should the room not be relet the balance of all reserved and unlet nights will be due from the guest who made the reservation.
Breakfast is normally served between 8.00am and 9.00am. We will arrange with you on registration when you would like to have breakfast within the breakfast hour, or if there is a specific time outside of that mentioned.
