The booking will be paid for by the guest, however, breakfast will be included. Should the room rate be higher than that booked at a Surya Hotel, Surya Hotels will pay the incremental difference. Surya Hotels will only pay for the excess charges if the guest accepts the alternative offered by Surya Hotels.

Should guests wish to make their own arrangements, Surya Hotels will have no further obligation.


All bookings are provisional until the relevant Contract (signed by the Client) is countersigned and dated on behalf of the Hotel. The Hotel will provide the Client with a copy of the Contract once it has been countersigned on behalf of the Hotel.

The Contract shall specify the anticipated number of guests for the Event, the agreed minimum number of guests for the Event (the “Contract Minimum”) and the maximum number of guests permissible for the function room(s) reserved for the Event.

The Client must inform the Hotel of the number of guests it wishes to be catered for at the Event (the “Final Number”) at least 3 Working Days before the Event. This Final number will override the anticipated number specified but will not affect the Contract Minimum.

The Contract Minimum represents the minimum number of guests the Client guarantees will attend the Event with charges calculated on this basis. The amount payable by the Client will, therefore, be calculated according to the highest of (a) the Contract Minimum (b) the Final Number or (c) the number who actually attend the Event.


All accounts incurred will be invoiced. Payment is due for all credit accounts on presentation of invoice. Any queries should not delay immediate payment of the outstanding balance. Queries should be referred to the hotel within 7 days of receipt of invoice. No allowance or refund can be made for meals and other elements not taken within the agreed package rate. Payment must be made in Pounds Sterling (UK) payable to the Hotel – Please note all invoices should be marked “Surya Hotels”.


The Client must pay the deposit payment(s) specified in the Contract under Billing Instructions. Should the Client fail to pay any such deposit within 7 days of the due date, Surya Hotels may treat the Booking as having been cancelled by the Client and:

Surya Hotels may off-set any cancellation fees which become payable against the deposit if the deposit held by Surya Hotels is greater than the amount of any cancellation fees payable, any balance shall be refunded to the Client.


Credit facilities within Surya Hotels may be obtained on application to the Hotel (subject to the agreement of the Hotel). Credit facilities must be finalised 2 weeks prior to the Event. All amounts incurred against an agreed credit facility will be invoiced immediately after the Event. The Client shall pay all invoices upon presentation of the invoice.


When credit facilities are granted but payment is not received within the stated terms, we reserve the right to charge an appropriate rate of interest (3% above the Bank of England base rate) or make a collection charge. All such agreed credit accounts must not exceed their credit limit at any time.


The Client shall pay the Hotel for any food and beverages or other goods and/or services not provided for in the Contract or otherwise in correspondence but made available upon request of the Client on the day of the booking or event.


In the event of circumstances beyond Surya Hotel’s control (including, but not limited to, increases in the standard rate of VAT), Surya Hotels reserves the right to vary the prices specified in the Contract accordingly.


The loyalty booking offer is 10% off our best available rates only. Offer is subject to promotional room & rate availability. The offer will not be available if the hotel is at full occupancy. The offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer, discount, group, or negotiated rates. Prices are from rates per room per night and based on 2 adults sharing a standard double. The best available rates and advance purchase rates are stated in the booking process of this website. The best available rates and advance purchase rates terms and conditions still apply. Additional terms and conditions will apply due to seasonal activities or events.


If the Client wishes to cancel a Booking or cancel the reservation of some or all bedrooms reserved either as a block booking or in conjunction with an Event, such cancellations must be verbally communicated to the Hotel in the first instance, followed by a written notice of cancellation. The Cancellation shall be effective, final and binding on the Working Day on which the Hotel receives a written notice of cancellation (the “Cancellation Date”). Any notice of cancellation received outside of the hours of 9.00am and 5.00pm shall be deemed made on the next Working Day. Postponement of any Event shall be considered as a cancellation of such an event.

A credit or debit card is required to secure your reservation. There will be no cancellation charge if a booking is cancelled before 12 noon, a day before the arrival date. If the booking is cancelled later than the stated time, or in the case of a no-show, the first night will be charged.

If the Client cancels a Booking, the Company will charge a cancellation fee. This cancellation fee shall be a percentage of the charges payable in respect of the Contract Minimum (and, if any separate charge is payable in respect of room hire, of such room hire charge), according to the number of clear days (that is not counting the Cancellation Date and the day of the Event) between the Cancellation Date and the date of the Event (the “Cancellation Notice”), as set out below. If the Event is cancelled less than 3 Working Days before the Event, the Hotel is entitled to charge according to the Final Number, if higher than the Contract Minimum.

Cancellation Notice (Events)

0 – 7 days prior to arrival – Full charge

8 – 14 days prior to arrival – 75% of charge

15 – 30 days prior to arrival – 50% of charge
