Guests will be charged a fee of $50 per hour for excess cleaning (e.g. dishes not washed and put away, spills on carpets, upholstery, curtains etc and the removal of excess rubbish or mess).

Please note: Due to an increase in damage to our luxury linens, we unfortunately need to implement a new policy. In the event of stains not being able to be removed from sheets, towels or bathrobes, guests will be charged the cost to replace these items. A photograph of the stains will be sent to the guest after check out to notify you of the potential charge. If our laundry is not able to remove the stain you will be contacted and your credit card will be charged to replace the item. We regret the need for this policy, however, we are unfortunately not able to cover the increasing costs of replacing damaged and stained linen.
