Welcome to Fernhill Hotel! This page gives you all the information you should need regarding making a booking with us, and using our website. If there is information you need which you cannot find here – please call us, we will be happy to help.


Booking details – Direct bookings.

When you make a direct booking with us a £30 per person non-refundable deposit is processed to confirm your booking. The balance is payable on departure. For bookings made via a third party or online travel agent, please refer to the terms made with them directly. 

Cancellation Policy – Direct bookings.

Please let us know in writing if you wish to cancel. For bookings made via a third party or online travel agent, please refer to the terms made with them directly. 

If you cancel outside of 4 days of your arrival date (more than 96hours from check-in at 3pm) we are happy to hold your non-refundable deposit to be used against a future stay for three months from your original arrival date.

Cancellation within 4 days (less than 96hrs) of arrival = 100% of total stay will be charged

We are aware that sometimes our guests, for various reasons, need to cancel a booking.  We try to be as flexible as we can when this happens, and follow the policy above to ensure everyone is treated fairly.  We highly recommend you take out Holiday Insurance to cover this eventuality. Your reservation is a legally binding contract and if you have to cancel for any reason, you may be liable to pay the total cost of your stay even if you are unable to enjoy it.

*CORONAVIRUS UPDATE* Due to the constantly changing nature and uncertainty of the current Covid-19 situation we are aware that some customers may be unable to enjoy their booking. Should you need to cancel your booking due to the Coronavirus situation do call us and we will explain the extension to our cancellation terms which we have made available for you as a direct booking customer. We wish everyone peace and safety during these uncertain times.


Cash, MasterCard, Visa, Delta or Switch.  Unfortunately we do not accept American Express. Sorry, there are no refunds for missed meals or unused rooms.

Facilities and services

Please let us know if you have any special requests (dietary, feather-free bedding, Twin beds etc.) so we can do our best to get everything just right for you.

We work hard to keep everything at Fernhill as perfect as we can but occasionally something might go awry. We accept this as part of life and don’t accept liability if a facility is out of action or a guest chooses to take part in an activity at their own risk.  We listen to our guests’ feedback, so please let us know about anything that is particularly important to you – we want to make your stay the best it can be.


As a private residence which has been developed into a hotel, we are less accessible than a purpose-built building, and can provide a detailed access statement for those who might require it. There are steps up to our front door and all our bedrooms are on the first or second floor. We don’t have a lift but we are happy to help with your bags. Each room has its own quirks – some rooms have a walk-in shower, others a bath with shower over. If accessibility is of any concern to anyone in your party, please call us to discuss, so that we can help you decide on the right accommodation for them.

If something goes wrong

Please let us know as soon as you can so we can try to put it right.

Our liability to you

Our primary aim is to help you have a great stay but, in case you don’t, our lawyer friends insist we limit our liability to what you have paid us. For the sake of legal correctness:

The Hotel shall not, except in respect of death or personal injury caused by the Hotel’s negligence or in circumstances of fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation (or as otherwise provided for in these terms), be liable whether in tort, contract, misrepresentation or otherwise for any indirect, special or consequential loss, damage, costs, expenses or other claims (whether caused by the Hotel, its employees or agents or otherwise) which arise out of or in connection with the provision of the facilities and services under these terms. The Hotel’s total liability in contract, tort, misrepresentation or otherwise arising in connection with the performance or contemplated performance of the services shall be limited to the price paid for those services.  All warranties, conditions and other terms implied by statute or common law are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, excluded from these terms.

The Hotel will not be liable for any failure or delay in providing its facilities or services as a result of events or matters outside its control.  This includes (but is not limited to) fire; explosion; storm; flood; Act of God, action by Government or a Governmental agency; shortage of goods or materials; strike or lock-out.
