ARRIVAL / DEPARTURE
Check-in/arrival time is from 14:00 (2:00PM). We allow guests to arrive earlier subject to availability on the day. Check-out/departure time is prior to 10:00 (10:00AM) – late check-out after this time may incur an extra fee. If the hotel is fully committed on the departure date, late departures or extensions not already confirmed will not be permitted.
Bedding requests should be made at time of booking. It is strictly subject to availability.
BEST RATE GUARANTEE
We promise that you won’t be able to find a lower rate for any of our hotels anywhere online. We understand that looking for the lowest rate can be time consuming and frustrating, that’s why we ensure we have the lowest rate available on our own website so you won’t need to shop around. On the unlikely occasion that a lower rate is not listed on www.staywellgroup.com, please contact us and we will be happy to match it. The rate must be publicly available and valid for the same arrival and departure dates. The rate must be listed in the local currency of the hotel, not influenced by a currency conversion and include goods and services tax (GST). Should the lower rate be the result of a third party website selling SWH rooms at a loss, we may not be able to match it.
Our standard cancellation policy for our most flexible rate requires reservation cancellations or changes to be advised to us by 2PM (14:00) hotel time, three (3) days prior to arrival. If the guest does not arrive by 6PM on the arrival date without alerting the hotel, the reservation will be released and 100% of total accommodation will be charged. Any prepayments will also be forfeited. Over high demand and special event periods, alternative cancellation policies may apply. Rates such as early bird or advanced purchase rates, or saver value rates, are strictly non-refundable, amendments and cancellations will not be permitted. The cancellation policy will be communicated during the reservation process and can be supplied in a confirmation email when requested.
