DAMAGE TO PROPERTY – You are responsible for the actual costs of any breakage or damage in or to the accommodation along with any additional costs that may result ( including our Handling Charge ) which are caused by you or your party.
We reserve the right to refuse admission to any guest for any just reason. We reserve the right to evict offensive persons or pets. No refunds will be made. 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.
Most lodges are graded at 3 stars by the Scottish Tourist Board and we have a small number which are graded 4 stars – the higher grading represents those lodges which have been recently refurbished. “Plus” lodges can be 3 and 4 star, the “Plus” means the lodge has at least one en-suite bedroom.
CHANGE OF PROPERTY - The lodge you originally booked may change due to unavoidable circumstances. LTHL reserves the right to change your lodge 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 without delay.
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.
SMOKING is strictly prohibited in all properties. Removal of smoke odours in buildings is extremely difficult and we reserve the right to make an additional charge if it is found that smoking has been allowed.
DOGS & PETS – Some properties allow dogs and pets but most do not, therefore it is essential that, 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. 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 £20.00 per short break
VEHICLES – Each lodge will allow parking for one or two cars depending upon th e size of individual parking space beside your property. Please DO NOT park on the grass or in such a way that you are obstructing another properties’ access. Additional vehicles please use the main car park at the restaurant.
COMPLAINTS - It is important to us that you enjoy your holiday and every effort has been made to ensure this. However, in the unlikely event of dissatisfaction with the property , you must contact the reception ( or site warden if you have an emergency out of office hours ) as soon as possible so that the opportunity to rectify the problem is given. Under no circumstances will any refund be considered if we have not been given the opportunity to rectify any problems during the Hirer’s let. Once a holidaymaker has returned home it is very difficult to investigate complaints of any nature. Regrettably we are unable to accept any complaints that are raised after departure and will not enter into any correspondence concerning such complaints.
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 to- the- 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.
