YOUR BOOKING REQUEST

Your booking will not be complete until you receive a confirmation from us, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.

PROMOTIONAL OFFERS

Payments for promotional offers must be paid in full at time of booking. These payments are non-refundable and non-transferable.

RESERVATIONS AND CANCELLATIONS

All spa reservations require full payment upon booking and are non-refundable. Should you have a medical condition we request that you seek advice from your GP whether you are suitable to use our facilities/treatments prior to booking. To maintain the ambience, you would expect from a spa, we limit group bookings to a maximum of six people per group. Please provide us with at least 7 days’ notice if you are unable to make your appointment/spa package and we will be happy to re-schedule with an admin fee of £10 per person. We reserve the right to alter treatment times on the day if necessary. All treatment times include consultation and aftercare.

If you wish to make a change to your booking, please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible and will send you a confirmation email with the new booking details if the change has been accepted and the admin fee has been paid.

We will do our best to avoid having to cancel your booking however, where necessary, we reserve the right to cancel your booking at any time. In such circumstances, we will provide you with a full refund and we will have no further liability to you in relation to the cancellation. We recommend that you are covered by a travel insurance policy in the event of adverse weather, bereavement, illness or other that would prevent you from attending your spa experience as planned.

COVID-19

The Spa at Breedon Priory has taken great care to comply with the guidelines and regulations set out by the Government to combat the spread of the coronavirus and to protect the health and wellbeing of our guests and team members to the best of our ability. However, due to the very nature of the virus as a highly contagious disease, the spa cannot be held accountable should any customers contract the disease as guests may be exposed to persons and situations unknown to us, which are out of our control, and therefore cannot pursue any claims against the company relating to coronavirus. Guests are respectfully requested to comply with the Covid-19 measures for the safety

and wellbeing of themselves, other guests and team members and failure to do so will be taken very seriously and may result in guests being requested to leave the premises.

Covid-19 – the current coronavirus pandemic and subsequent government restrictions are out of the control of both The Spa at Breedon Priory and our guests. Where government guidelines force the full or partial closure of our spa or restaurant then any bookings will become fully transferrable to a future date and supersede the specific booking terms and conditions of any individual reservation.

Should the future date carry higher charges for products or services then the additional amounts will need to be paid as part of the normal process. For example, should a midweek booking be cancelled and then re-booked at a weekend, then additional charges will apply.

Bookings that have been subject to an initial postponement and rebooking as a result of a Government decision and are then subject to a second postponement and which rebooking becomes impossible, we will be prepared to enter into negotiations on the contracted cancellation policy within reasonable limits and depending on the specific circumstances of each individual booking/event.

CHARGES

The price of your visit (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated when you make your booking via the website, or as communicated to you if you place your booking by telephone or email. We will confirm the price of your visit in our confirmation email, so please double-check when you receive it and let us know if you notice any abnormalities. Where there has been an obvious discrepancy between our published charges and the price stated on our website or otherwise communicated to you, we reserve the right to charge our correct charges or to cancel your booking.

The Spa at Breedon Priory reserves the right to ask guests to provide a valid credit or debit card upon check-in. A credit card pre-authorisation may be taken upon arrival for the amount of £1.00 which will then be deducted on check-out.

All charges incurred during your visit, for example food and beverage/retail/treatment charges which you have not paid for in advance, must be settled upon check-out, when you will have the option to provide a different method of payment should you wish. Please let us know before you check-out if you notice any abnormalities in any charges which have been assigned to you as these cannot be rectified after departure.

SPA DAYS: GENERAL DETAILS, PAYMENT & CANCELLATION

Treatment times are scheduled during your booking. You will receive an itinerary upon arrival which will state your treatment and Terrace Restaurant times. If you have made any treatment requests, we will endeavour to meet these but unfortunately, we cannot always guarantee these will be met.

Unless a request is made at least a week in advance, all treatments take place in rooms on the first floor and involve climbing a set of stairs. We will endeavour to assist you should you be disabled or have mobility problems by allocating our ground floor treatment room for your treatment; but it is your responsibility to make enquiries around availability of this area for your treatment at least a week in advance. We cannot be held responsible if we are unable to carry out your treatment if advance notice is not given.

The Spa at Breedon Priory policy is that vouchers are valid for 6 months from date of purchase unless otherwise stated. The expiry date is published on the voucher.

We endeavour to process and send all gift vouchers orders within 48-hours of the purchase being made. Please note that in some instances, such as Christmas and Bank Holidays, there may be a delay to the processing of orders

Any voucher ordered with postal delivery will be sent via First Class post with Royal Mail. We cannot accept responsibility for the length of delivery time or the non-delivery of orders once the goods are dispatched and delivery times are wholly reliant on Royal Mail.

Gift vouchers are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged for cash.

Cash change for unused voucher amounts will not be given however if there is a remaining balance on your voucher, you can retain the voucher number and redeem the amount at a later date, providing the voucher is still in date.

If you are unable to use your voucher before the expiry date, please contact us before the voucher expires to discuss a possible extension.

We may charge a small fee to extend vouchers in extenuating circumstances, to cover any increased operational costs over the additional validity period.

To ensure we do not breach VAT deferral rules, a gift voucher cannot be used to purchase other gift vouchers.

The voucher number and expiry date are required when making a booking with our reservations team.

Please ensure you present your redeemable voucher on arrival. If you forget your voucher, or your voucher is not valid, then we will require full payment via an alternative payment method, in order to continue your visit.

Please contact us to check availability as soon as you are able, as all voucher redemptions are subject to availability.
