- IF WE CHANGE YOUR RESERVATION
Very occasionally, it may be necessary for us to make changes to reservation details and to our website, both before and after your reservation has been confirmed. As this is usually the result of circumstances totally outside of our control, we must reserve the right to do so. Most changes will usually be of minor nature. If however there is a particular service or facility that you require or anything which you feel is a major reason for selecting the particular service or facility that you require, or anything which you feel is a major reason for selecting the particular holiday, you are requested within our policy of ‘Fair Trading’ to confirm with our office, in writing, at any time 8 days prior to arrival, that that particular service or facility is available for your holiday date.
We undertake to acknowledge in writing all such requests. Should you not make any such request in writing, it is contractually agreed that the provision of any such service or facility is a minor part of your overall holiday. In the rare event of our having to make a major change, we will notify you as soon as possible. We will then offer you the choice of:
- Accepting the changed arrangements or
- Purchasing an alternative stay, if available, (and paying a sum or receiving a refund in respect of any price difference) or;
- Cancelling and receiving a full and prompt refund of all monies paid.
If you choose A or B we may pay you compensation as shown below. If you choose C we will refund all the money you have paid to us plus compensation shown below. However, in no case will we pay compensation if the major change is made as a result of unusual and unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, for example but not limited to, natural disasters, fire, industrial disputes, technical problems, bad weather, acts of government, the consequences of which we could not have avoided even with all due care.
Period before arrival date within which a major change is notified to you – Compensation per Adult
- More than 42 days – NIL
- 0-42 days:- £5 on holidays less than 7 nights/£10 on all other holidays
No compensation is payable in respect of minor changes. We cannot be responsible for any costs and expenses you may incur as a result of any change.
CANCELLATION/REFUSAL BY US
Very rarely we may find it necessary to cancel reservations and we reserve the right to do so. However, we will only cancel if:
- You fail to make payment in full and on time.
- If we are forced to do so as a result of unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which we could not have avoided even with all due care.
- It is possible we may cancel a particular break if we have sold insufficient capacity of available accommodation to enable that break to be operated within an acceptable standard of both atmosphere and viability. In the event of cancellation (other than due to your default in payment) we would then return to you all money you have paid us, or will offer you an alternative holiday of comparable standard. Whichever you choose, we will pay compensation as shown above. No liability for any other costs which may arise from such cancellations can be accepted by us.
- We are continually refurbishing and updating the Resort with new facilities and accommodation. Sometimes it is unavoidable that these plans will affect holidays booked in advance and accepted in good faith at the time of booking. Where this causes a change to your holiday we will endeavour to inform you with as much notice as possible and offer you alternative accommodation or alternative dates, or if necessary we may be forced to cancel your holiday with us. In this unlikely event a full refund of all monies paid will be made to the party booker. Unison Croyde Bay Resort cannot be held liable for any 3rd party and/or any other expenses associated with any cancellations howsoever caused.
- If your behavior, or that of any member of your party, causes or is likely to cause distress, damage, danger or offence to other guests, employees or others or where behaviour is deemed to be aggressive, rude or threatening. In such circumstances, you agree that all monies paid are non-refundable, and that the remainder of your booking will be cancelled.
- We reserve the right to refuse entry to our premises
- POLICY OF FAIR TRADING
We take every care to ensure that the details of our advertising materials are accurate with regard to the descriptions of the services and facilities available or planned to be available at Croyde Bay. The operation of Unison Croyde Bay Resort is subject to legislation and guidelines laid down by the ‘Health & Safety Executive’ and Local Authorities and their codes of practice. We accordingly reserve the right to adjust our services in order to meet these standards. All photographs used in our advertising materials are intended for general guidance only. It is possible that in some circumstances, some accommodation of a particular facility may have to be temporarily withdrawn, due to maintenance, renovation, adverse weather conditions, changes in governmental legislation, or any other factor outside of our control. We therefore reserve the right to make such alterations in the above circumstances without prior notice, and are unable to accept liability for the loss of an advertised facility, or to pay any compensation for any inconvenience caused. However, see ‘IF WE CHANGE YOUR RESERVATION’ section.
Calls may be monitored and recorded for quality and training purposes. We endeavor to offer a prompt and efficient booking service and take the welfare of our staff seriously. Consequently, aggressive, rude or threatening behavior will not be tolerated and in such circumstances we reserve the right to cancel any booking without refund.
We sincerely hope you will not encounter any problems during your holiday. In the unlikely event that you do, you must notify us immediately. Most problems are capable of being remedied on the spot and we will do our best to ensure they are. Should however, you remain unhappy after notifying us during your stay, you must put any unresolved complaint in writing to us within 28 days of the end of the holiday. We will then investigate the matter so that an amicable resolution can be reached if at all possible. We regret we cannot accept liability for any claim not notified to us in accordance with these Booking Terms and Conditions. It is specifically agreed by you that failure to notify a complaint immediately or as soon as possible or at all before departure will entitle us to refuse to entertain the complaint, irrespective of its merits’. The decision of The General Manager is final.
