Please note that non-payment of the balance by the due date – we will issue one reminder only - 12 weeks prior to the start of your holiday- will result in Loch Tay Highland Lodges treating the property as being cancelled and available for re-letting.

Should we have to cancel your booking due to circumstances beyond reasonable control we will make every effort to offer/find alternative accommodation.

We reserve the right to make charges against credit cards or to invoice for damages. Please note that all lodges on the park are privately owned, therefore each lodge although offering the same basic inventory will have individual touches placed by the owner making each property unique in some ways.

BEHAVIOUR – You are responsible for the behaviour of all members of your party.

Please show consideration to other guests, our staff and our location. Noisy or disruptive behaviour, wilful damage to the location or accommodation or other behaviour considered buy our staff to be inappropriate may result in us asking you or a member of your party to leave the location immediately. No refunds or compensation will be given in these circumstances and we reserve the right to claim compensation for damages or inconvenience caused. The park is family friendly and we ask all guests to respect this, especially so around the Glamping areas and to adhere to a quiet time from 10pm in the evening.

CHILDREN – Children remain the responsibility of their parents or guardians at all times in the accommodation, on the park grounds and during any activities. Please ensure your children are supervised at all times and make sure you always know where your children are.

HOT TUBS – Some properties have hot tubs. On each departure all hot tubs are drained, cleaned and water replenished prior to each arrival. Although we will endeavour to have your tub ready on or within 4 hours of a 4pm arrival, if your property is a changeover then this may mean that your hot tub will not be ready for use until later on in the evening of arrival or until the morning after arrival. Please ensure you read and follow all guidelines regarding hot tub use. Any damage to hot tubs caused by misuse will be charged for. If the tub requires refilling during your stay this will reduce the time it may be available for use.

CHANGE OF PROPERTY - The accommodation you originally booked may change due to unavoidable circumstances. LTHL reserves the right to change your accommodation but your alternative will not be downgraded. In the event that the property becomes unavailable for reasons beyond our control every attempt will be made to make other suitable arrangements or all payments made will be refunded. Our liability will not extend beyond this.

LOST PROPERTY - LTHL will not be held responsible for any items left behind or lost property. We would remind guests to please check you have taken all your belongings with you before departure. You are responsible for your personal possessions on park or in your holiday home and LTHL is not responsible for any loss or damage to these.

SMOKING is strictly prohibited in all properties and shared amenity areas.

Removal of smoke odours in buildings is extremely difficult and we reserve the right to evict any guest who we suspect is smoking or drug taking in any of our properties. Charges will be made to the guest to cover costs of any cleaning, deodorising and any loss of future rental revenue, which may occur as a result of smoking within a property.

DOGS & PETS – Some properties allow dogs and pets, when booking a property, you MUST inform us at the time of booking if you wish to bring a dog or a pet. We will then be able to advise if a pet friendly lodge is available. If you book a pet friendly lodge please ensure that dogs are provided with their own bed. Pets are not permitted on furniture or beds. Guests will be liable for any damage caused or extra cleaning that may be required and you will be charged for this accordingly. Pets must be kept on a lead at all times and please do not allow your dog to foul the areas in the immediate vicinity of the lodges. All dog waste must be collected.

There are dog waste bins located around the park. Dogs must never be left unattended in the lodge unless caged. Please make an extra effort before leaving the lodge to vacuum up all dog hairs. Annoyance to other guests if considered unreasonable will result in eviction. Charges £30.00 per week for a dog or £10.00 per short break

VEHICLES – Each lodge will allow parking for one or two cars depending upon the size of individual parking space beside your property. Please DO NOT Park on the grass, which will cause damage, or in such a way that you are obstructing another properties’ access. Additional vehicles please use the main car park at the restaurant. Please note we use CCTV with Number Plate recognition, this is for your security. You should comply with the park speed limit of 5mph. We have charging points for electric vehicles on site, please enquire at reception.

BOATS – We have limited space in the marina for temporary boat berths. If you wish to bring a boat on holiday with you this must be booked at least 6 weeks in advance by calling 01567 820 323. Availability of berths cannot be guaranteed.

COMPLAINTS - It is important to us that you enjoy your holiday and every effort has been made to ensure this. However, in the event of any concerns with your property, we as the booking agent, together with the property owner, will want to take action as soon as possible. It is essential that you contact the staff at the main reception immediately if any problem arises so that it can be resolved as soon as possible. It is extremely difficult (and sometimes impossible) to sort out difficulties unless reception is told promptly. If you report any issues to reception during your stay it can usually be resolved quickly. Under no circumstances will any refund be considered if we have not been given the opportunity to rectify any problems during the Hirer’s stay. Regrettably we are unable to accept any complaints that are raised after departure and will not enter into any correspondence concerning such complaints. As we act only as an agent for the property owner we cannot accept any legal responsibility for your holiday property. If we help to sort out a complaint, we are doing so as a gesture of goodwill in our capacity as an agent only and will have no legal responsibility to you for any refund or compensation.

WEATHER – At times we will experience adverse weather conditions. We aim to keep our driveway and main entrance clear but at times of heavy snowfall direct tothe- door access to all our accommodation may not be possible. We cannot be held responsible for travel disruptions resulting in non-arrival because of bad weather.

WEBSITES AND ADVERTISEMENTS - LTHL aims to ensure that the information and descriptions provided are accurately conveyed on the official website (www.lochtay-vacations.co.uk) and any authorised third party websites or advertisements. There may be small differences between the actual accommodation and its description as we are always seeking to improve services and facilities.

There are many unauthorised websites listing holiday accommodation and we cannot accept responsibility for the descriptions on these sites if they are inaccurate.
