What is a pre-authorisation?
A pre-authorisation is a temporary hold of a specific amount of the available balance on a credit or debit card that is provided upon booking. The pre-authorisation is not a charge and no funds have been debited from your account.

How much is a pre-authorisation?
The amount that we pre-authorise will depend on the amount of nights that you stay.

Why is the credit card pre-authorised?
When you give us a credit/debit card, the pre-authorisation guarantees us that the funds are available to pay for any charges incurred.

When does the pre-authorisation get released from the credit card?
This varies dependent on your individual credit/debit card. Upon your check out your room charge and any extras will be charged to your card, this will appear on your credit card statement within 3 working days. However if you choose to pay the balance with another credit card or choose cash, we will cancel the pre-authorisation and this can take up to 5 working days for credit card and  10 days for debit card to clear in your account.

The hotel is NOT charging your credit card. A pre-authorisation is a security guarantee for payment only. The pre-authorisation fund is not held by the hotel, the company who provide the credit card system or by the authorizing bank. The pre-authorisation fund is held on your card by your own issuing bank. A pre- authorisation can be held on your card for a minimum of 5 working days for credit card or 15 days for debit card. Pre-authorisation should be released by your issuing bank automatically, if not you will need to contact your home issuing bank.

***Please note that the hotel reserves the right to pre-authorize your credit card 48 hours prior to arrival.
Non-valid credit cards will result in automatic cancellation of the reservation.***
