St Malieu Hall Holiday Letting – Terms & Conditions of Hire

The agreement shall be between St Malieu Hall (herinafter call the Owner) and the party named in the booking form who is responsible to pay the rent in full (hereinafter called the holidaymaker) on the following Terms and Conditions.

  1. The holidaymaker warrants that the holiday accommodation named in the booking form is to be used for the purposes of a holiday and so accepts that the letting is a “holiday” let, namely “a tenancy the purpose of which is to confer on the holidaymaker the right to occupy the subjects for a holiday only” as governed by Scots Law.
  2. The holidaymaker undertakes to maintain and leave the said accommodation and its furnishings and fittings in the same condition as at the commencement of this holiday let and none of the furnishings and fittings shall be removed from the said accommodation at any time.
  3. Any damage or breakages are required to be reported in good time to facilitate repair or replacement, and the holidaymaker is liable for any reasonable repair or replacement costs.
  4. At the end of their holiday, the holidaymaker binds and obliges himself or herself to vacate the said holiday accommodation without demand.
  5. The holidaymaker shall ensure that the holiday accommodation is securely locked when not occupied during the period of the holiday let.
  6. The holidaymaker shall not sublet the said holiday accommodation or any part thereof.
  7. The number of persons occupying the said holiday accommodation shall not exceed the numbers of the party stated on the booking form.
  8. The holidaymaker shall undertake to prevent any member of his party from causing a nuisance or disturbance to other residents or occupiers in the neighbourhood. In the event of a problem arising, the Owner has the right to ask the holidaymaker to leave.
  9. The holidaymaker will indemnify the Owner against any claim which may arise as a result of (a) this holiday letting and /or (b) the holidaymaker’s occupation and uses of the said accommodation and/or (c) the holidaymaker’s breach of the terms hereof.
  10. The holidaymaker or any of their party may not smoke in the property.
  11. Well behaved dogs are welcome. Dogs are not allowed on settees or beds. Prior to departure the holidaymaker is required to inspect the patio, car park and garden areas for dog mess which they must remove.
  12. Cancellation. The holidaymaker is liable for the total hire charge unless the Owner is able to re-let the holiday. If the property can be re-let, the cost will be reimbursed minus a £50 admin charge and any late booking discount required to re-market the property. Every effort will be made to re-let a cancelled booking but the holidaymaker is advised to take out holiday insurance to cover that eventuality. No insurance is included in the quoted holiday costs.
  13. A deposit of one third of the cost is required within seven days of provisionally booking the accommodation in order to confirm the booking. This can be done directly when booking through the Website, or by cheque made payable to Richard Arnot and sent to 148 Newhaven Road, Edinburgh, EH6 4PZ.
  14. The full cost of the holiday must be paid by six weeks prior to the start of the let period.
  15. A good housekeeping deposit of £100 is required in addition to the rental charge by 6 weeks prior to the start of the booking. This is refundable subject to the condition of the property once vacated. Any damage or additional cleaning over and above that reasonably expected will incur a cost which will be taken from this deposit. The deposit can also be withheld if more people use the property than it is advertised to sleep.
  16. Holidaymakers are required to utilise the wheelie bins provided for the disposal of household refuse. The two wheelie bins are clearly marked for general rubbish or paper & cardboard, and a charge will be made if it is found necessary to separate household refuse from the cardboard & paper bin.
  17. If booking of holiday is within 6 weeks of commencement of holiday payment in full is required at the time of booking.
  18. Prices quoted do not include any additional costs brought about by the use of credit cards or foreign currency exchange.
  19. The property Owners reserve the right to change facilities quoted on the web site due to errors or omissions. The property Owners reserve the right to alter or withdraw amenities or facilities, which have been advertised as being available where reasonably necessary due to repairs or maintenance; weather conditions, and circumstances beyond their control.
