3.    Room prices

The Archway House adopts dynamic pricing, and the price of our rooms fluctuates based on demand. When you make a reservation request, we will give you a total price for the rooms and number of nights you have requested. The price you pay is the price quoted to you at the time you make your reservation.

Room prices are per room, per night and are inclusive of VAT at the applicable rate at the time of your reservation. If your booking is not payable in full at the time of booking and the rate of VAT changes between the date of your reservation and the date of your stay, we may adjust the rate of VAT but the price you pay will remain the same.

Meals and other extras are not included in the room price but you may be able to add them to your reservation during the booking process or any time after, including during your stay. You may pay for breakfast and selected extras at the same time as paying for your room. If you have breakfast and selected extras as part of your reservation and the rate of VAT changes between the date of your reservation and the date of your stay, we may adjust the rate of VAT, but the price you pay will remain the same. All other meals and extras must be paid for separately.

There are two types of room rates available at the Archway House:

3.1.    Flexible Rate (Free Cancellation until 3 days before arrival date)

Payment for your stay will be made upon arrival. If you wish to pre-pay or pay by any other means, please contact the hotel reception.

You may cancel or amend your reservation until midnight local hotel time 3 days before your arrival date without any financial penalty. If the booking is cancelled after this time, or in case of no-how, the entire stay will be charged, including any meals in the rate.

You may be asked for a credit card on check-in to guarantee any charges in addition to your room charge. The card will be authorised but not charged at that time.
