Williams Gate B&B - Reservation and Stay Policy

If the reservation was submitted on-line, the Confirmation Letter will be automatically submitted and it will be followed by a manual email from us to confirm that we received it, and also to get in touch with you, in case that it is anything that we can do for you, prior your arrival. If the reservation was made by phone, you will also receive a confirmation from us.
- Please help us serve you better, by answering the Reservation Questionnaire you will be asked to fill out after making an on-line reservation, or we made it for you following a phone request.
- Your credit card has only secured your reservation; No deposit will be charged, the total rate is due on arrival.
Minimum 2 nights stay:
- We prefer, therefore require, a minimum of 2 nights stay during weekends in high season (May 1st to October 31st), and all year round during holidays and long weekends. Our on-line reservation system is set-up accordingly. Occasionally, depending on availability, the dates, and the timing of the reservation, we will accept a one night stay. Please inquire.
- We accept payment with cash or personal Cheque(Canadian and US), VISA, MC, AMEX, JCB, Discover; However, to save us credit card charges, we will appreciate payment by cash or personal cheque, if possible.
- Well behaved children, 3 years or older, are welcome, as long as they are carefully supervised by their parents and will not disturb our other guests in house. However, please note, our B&B is not able to provide any child-oriented or child-care facilities. Please inquire.
- We are true animal lovers but we cannot accommodate pets.
- Smoking is only permitted outside the house.
- You have up till two weeks before the scheduled date of arrival to cancel your reservation without penalty.
- If you cancel within the two weeks, but not less than 4 days before the scheduled date of arrival, half of the total rate is due.
- If cancellation is made 4 days or less before the scheduled date of arrival, or in a non-show-up situation, the total rate is due.
- We certainly understand that sometimes serious things can happen and you have to cancel your reservation. However, we kindly ask that you should make a reservation only when you are definitely considering to be our guests. Cancellations are not only time consuming for us, many times we are not able to rebook the suites following a cancellation. The negative impact of cancellations for small accommodations like ours is much greater than for larger accommodation providers like hotels.
