If a cheque used to cover payment is returned, we will cancel the booking and seek recovery of bank charges. We do not have a credit or debit card facility and payment must be in cash or by cheque. 

Cancellation by the Guest

We are a small business, so cancellations can have a big impact on us, especially if we have turned away potential guests in favour of someone who has already booked and who then cancels. We do, however, appreciate that unforeseen circumstances can intervene, and we try to be as sympathetic and helpful as possible in such cases.

In the event of a cancellation up to 6 days prior to the scheduled date of arrival no charge will be made.  Guests failing to arrive, without notification, may be responsible to a charge equivalent to the total reservation price.

We take all Bookings in good faith, as we are unable to judge reasons for change, cancellation or non-arrival, guests are reminded that no exceptions to the above conditions will be made and that any booking made with Meadow View Bed and Breakfast for either accommodation or goods, services, meals or drinks that are pre booked (verbal or written) forms a legally binding contract. For this reason we advise that you take out a suitable insurance product to cover against unexpected costs such as cancellation fees. In addition, we may take legal action, through the Courts, to recover any outstanding debts. 

Cancellation by Us

Should it become necessary for us to cancel a booking we will contact you immediately. Any payments made will be refunded in full. Should you wish to, we will attempt to book you into another local bed and breakfast of a similar standard room(s). Should this establishment be more expensive than Meadow View Bed and Breakfast, we will pay the difference for the first night of your stay. Our liability will not extend beyond these conditions.
