Update to our cancellation policy
We’re aiming to reduce your stress by being more flexible with booking conditions. For all bookings, including those with pre-paid sale rates (which are typically more restrictive), you can postpone your stay. If you’re still unsure when you would like to stay, we can hold the credit for up to 12 months. This is effective immediately and will apply for all travel up to 31 May 2020. We’ll continue to closely monitor the situation and our policy will continue to evolve where necessary.
We sincerely appreciate your understanding and patience as we navigate these uncertain times.
Whether you are travelling now or in the future, we want you to know that your safety and wellbeing are our top priority.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to welcoming you again sometime in the future.
