How do I make a booking?

What happens if I have to cancel my booking?

If you need to cancel a booking please call our reservations department on 0121 334 2300 or 0121 334 2301 as soon as possible when you will be given a cancellation reference number. You will also  be asked to provide written confirmation of your cancellation by fax or email. A cancellation charge may apply – please check your terms and conditions for details.

What is the payment process?

A credit/debit card is required to guarantee your reservation. Authorisation of the card will be required on arrival and payment for your stay is taken on departure.

Credit Card Pre-authorisation

1. What is a pre-authorisation?   When you make a reservation, there may be instances when we will contact your credit (or debit) card company to confirm that the card you are using is valid and hasn’t been reported lost or stolen. At this time, we may also check to see if the card has enough money to cover the transaction. This is communicated in the form of a pre-authorisation of the full amount of your reservation. However, we will not proceed with the charge. The time at which your card will be charged will depend on the terms and conditions linked to your booking.

2. What’s the difference between a  pre-authorisation and an actual charge to my credit card?   Pre-authorisations are common but are often confused with actual charges. While in-store purchases are immediately charged and deducted from your available balance, pre-authorisations are temporary holds. The length of the hold will vary, and your credit card company can advise how they handle this.

3. How will I know if my card has been pre-authorised?   Your available balance will be reduced temporarily by the full amount of your reservation. You may also see “pending transactions” on your credit card account summary. If you’re not sure if your card had been pre-authorised, our reception team and your credit card company can verify this.

4. How long will the  pre-authorisation hold affect my available balance?   Your card provider can better explain this, along with the general terms and conditions associated with their pre-authorisation procedures. These terms vary across the board, so it’s best  to contact them for specific details.

5. Will the hold always equal the exact amount of my reservation?   In most cases, we will pre-authorise your card for the full amount of your reservation. On occasion, you may see an amount slightly higher than the rate shown on your confirmation. If this does happen, we can explain why this has occurred.
