our terms & conditions

We look forward to welcoming you.

Arrival and Departure

Check in is available from 3.00pm to 7.00pm on the day of arrival. Check-in times outside of those specified can be arranged with us, but this must be agreed prior to arrival.

Check out is requested at 10:30am.


In order for us to confirm an online reservation, you must have received a confirmation call or email further to the initial welcome mail. 

The exception to this policy is for bookings made by phone or in person, in which case confirmation is immediate.

If a cheque used to cover payment is returned, we will cancel the booking and seek recovery of bank charges.

Cancellation by the Guest

In the event of a cancellation up to 7 days prior to the scheduled date of arrival no charge will be made.

If you cancel your reservation within 7 days of the scheduled date of arrival a cancellation charge equivalent to the room(s) single night rate will be made.

Guests failing to arrive, without notification, may be responsible to a charge equivalent to the total reservation price.

Cancellation by Us

Should it become necessary for us to cancel a booking we will contact you immediately. Any payments made will be refunded in full. Should you wish to, we will attempt to book you into another local guesthouse with a similar standard of room(s). Should this establishment be more expensive than The Old Post Office Boutique Guesthouse, we will pay the difference for the first night of your stay. Our liability will not extend beyond these conditions.

Car Parking

A car park is available for guests’ use at the side of the guesthouse. Cars parked here are at owners risk as this is a public carpark. The parking is free of charge after 6pm.
