Booking Terms & Conditions
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS CAREFULLY.
By using this website and the The Metropole Hotel online booking service you are agreeing to be bound by the Terms and Conditions detailed below which form the basis of your contract with The Metropole Hotel. In the Terms & Conditions set out below, “you” and “your” refers to all persons named on the booking, which includes any individual(s) subsequently added or substituted at a later date. “We”, “us” and “our” all refer to The Metropole Hotel.
Please print and retain a copy of this Agreement for your records as it may occasionally be updated.
1. Making a booking
By making a booking you are confirming that you are authorised to do so on behalf of all persons named in the booking and you are acknowledging that all members of your party agree to be bound by these Booking Terms & Conditions.
When your booking has been made a confirmation will be sent to you by email using the email address that you have supplied, or by post. Booking confirmations are subject to the availability of accommodation at the hotel.
You should carefully check the details of your confirmation as soon as you receive it. You must contact The Metropole Hotel immediately if any of the details are incorrect or incomplete.
We will always endeavour to rectify any inaccuracies or accommodate any alterations you wish to make to your booking. We cannot accept liability for any inaccuracies that are not brought to our attention within seven days of issuing your confirmation, nor can we accept responsibility for inaccurate information that you have supplied.
2. Paying for your booking
A deposit may be required when you make your booking and we will ask you to provide credit or debit card details. Your card must be presented on check-in at the hotel. The balance of the booking is payable on departure from the hotel. In some instances, a non-refundable deposit or full payment may be required at the time of booking. If this is the case you will be advised during the booking process.
When booking golf or health and beauty breaks online, more than 14 days prior to arrival, please check the availability of tee times with the hotel soon after making your booking. For golf break bookings within 14 days of arrival, please contact Reservations directly on 01597 823700.
Unless stated as part of your booking, additional items such as (but not limited to) the cost of external telephone calls, meals, drinks, items from the mini-bar and travel expenses, are not included in the price of your stay. If you incur any such additional costs you must settle the sum involved prior to your departure from the hotel.
3. Price changes
The Metropole Hotel reserves the right to increase or decrease the price of unsold breaks at any time. The price of your chosen break will be confirmed when your booking is made and, with the exception of any errors, we will not increase this price once it has been confirmed. We reserve the right to correct any errors in advertised and confirmed prices and will do so as soon as we become aware of an error. We will notify you of any price discrepancies relating to your booking should they arise, but we strongly advise you to check that the final price of your booking is correct before making your final confirmation.
4. Amendments to your booking
You should notify us of any amendments to your confirmed booking by telephone or in writing (by post or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible. Amendments are subject to availability and those made within the cancellation period (see below) may be subject to cancellation charges.
In order to avoid cancellation and/or non-arrival charges, guests should observe the Metropole Hotel cancellation policy, which is up to 4.00pm, one day before you arrive (unless a different cancellation policy has been arranged through a group or special offer). This includes advance cancellation of any supplementary activities, treatments or tickets that may have been issued. Failure to cancel in advance will result in the first night’s accommodation package and supplement activities booked being charged to your credit or debit card. If you have paid a deposit, made full payment or paid for any supplements – such as tickets, rounds of golf or other leisure activities – the sum may be non-refundable. Please check at time of cancellation.
6. Cancellations and changes made by The Metropole Hotel
In the unlikely event that a hotel is unable to accommodate a confirmed reservation it may be necessary to offer an alternative of an equal or a superior standard. If at any time we need to make changes that will significantly affect your stay or we need to cancel your stay, we will tell you as soon as possible, offering a suitable alternative or a refund. This does not apply to minor changes or events during your stay, resulting from unusual or unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control.
We cannot be held responsible for cancelling your booking as a result of your failure to comply with any requirement of our Booking Terms & Conditions, and we cannot be held liable for any expenses, costs or losses incurred by you as a result of any change or cancellation.
If a guest or a member of your party behaves in a way that causes or is likely to cause danger, upset or distress to a third-party or to hotel or guest property, we are entitled, without prior notice, to curtail the stay and request that the person(s) concerned leave the hotel. No refunds or return travel arrangements will be made and we will not pay any expenses or costs incurred as a result of such a curtailment.
7. Additional Requests
All additional or special requests are subject to availability and we cannot guarantee the provision for special requests. Any additional requests made should be prior to your arrival at the hotel, giving reasonable advance notice.
8. Third party suppliers
Elements of your break may include services supplied by third parties (for example golf, tickets to local attractions etc). Such third-party suppliers will usually have their own set of Terms and Conditions relating to the services they provide. You should consult any third-party Terms and Conditions soon after making a booking if your break includes such items.
9. Medical conditions
If you or any member of your party has a medical problem or disability which may affect your stay, please either call Reservations or use the Enquiry Form on our website to advise us so that we can make provision for the particular needs of the person(s) concerned, or advise you if we are unable to make such provision. If details are not provided to us at the time of booking, the hotel reserves the right to cancel the booking should it be unable to make appropriate provision for a specific need or needs.
10. Circumstances beyond our control
We cannot accept responsibility for unforeseen circumstances beyond our control. These include (but are not limited to) adverse weather conditions, fire, riot, war, terrorist activity (or threat of such activity), industrial dispute, natural disaster, or injuries and death of an individual(s) through accidental circumstances unconnected with the hotel.
By making a booking you are accepting responsibility for any damage or loss caused by yourself or a member of your party. Full payment for any such damage or loss must be paid to the hotel owner or manager on demand. If you fail to do so, you will be responsible for meeting any claims subsequently made (together with our own and the other party’s full legal costs) as a result of your actions.
If you are dissatisfied with any aspect of your stay you should bring the problem or issue to the attention of the duty manager at the hotel as soon as possible so that all reasonable efforts can be made to rectify the situation. If, for any reason, the issue cannot be resolved to your satisfaction and you wish to make a complaint, you should put it in writing and send it to the General Manager at: The Metropole, Temple Street, Llandrindod Wells, Powys LD1 5DY.
