CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL
All bookings are accepted by us in the belief that the accommodation will be available on the date booked. Should we be unable to provide the accommodation booked owing to circumstances beyond our control (e.g. damage to property), we will endeavor to provide alternative accommodation. If this is not possible, all monies received will be returned to the Guest (limited to the unavailable accommodation) and the Guest will have no further claim against Ogilvy House Ltd or it's owners.
As we are a family run business without external staff we reserve the right, in extreme cases of emergency, to offer Continental breakfast in lieu of a cooked option, or a reduced price on accommodation per night. In such a situation, a trusted family member or friend would be on site in our absence.
Where comparable accommodation (i.e. in terms of space, facilities and quality) is offered but rejected by the Guest, the Guest shall have no entitlement to a refund.
We cannot be held responsible - financially or otherwise -for any problem, loss or delay suffered by the Guest as a result of force majeure. If a Guest is detained as a result of any unforeseen circumstance the payment terms stated herein shall still apply.
A holiday booking is a legally binding contract. If the Guest is unable to fulfill their part of the contract, he/she is still liable for the costs identified in these Terms & Conditions. Guests are therefore strongly urged to take out independent holiday insurance.

Due to the age and design of the building the bedrooms are on the 1st and 2nd floors and therefore not wheelchair accessible. The stairs are that of a typical Victorian house.

PROPERTY FOUND IN ROOMS AFTER DEPARTURE
Unfortunately guests property is often forgotten and left behind in rooms, only to be discovered once the guest is on their way or arrived home. We are more than happy to send items via post, however as this is an extremely common occurrence we impose a standard charge of £7.00 in order to cover postage, packaging and time. In the event that a valuable or large ( i.e jewelry, i pad etc.) item needs returning, an additional charge depending on size and weight is required to cover insurance and tracking.
When possible, within reason we try to accommodate guests special requests, however there is a limit ! When a guest requests prior to arrival special dietary produce or preferred foods for their stay, we reserve the right to charge an additional cost, according to the request and length of stay, which is agreed at the time of booking. Obviously, as a small establishment we are unable to cook to order or offer complete individual menus.
