Paying for your booking

The Regent reserve the right to change rates at any time although rates charged will not be changed once a booking is confirmed with the exception of amendments initiated by you.

Full payment will be taken at the time of the booking.

You will be required to enter the three-digit Card Verification Value (CVV) printed on the back of your credit or debit card when making a booking online. This is a measure of fraud prevention.

Confirmation of your booking will be e-mailed to you. Please check the details of your confirmation as soon as you receive it and retain a copy for your reference. Should any of the details be incorrect please contact The Regent immediately and The Regent will endeavour to rectify any inaccuracies straight away.

Although The Regent will also attempt to accommodate any amendments you wish to make to your booking The Regent cannot accept liability for any inaccuracies in information supplied by yourself or any inaccuracies not brought to our attention within five working days of confirmation.

Amending Your Booking

Amendments are subject to availability and to the cancellation terms (see Cancellations). They may, therefore, also be subject to a cancellation fee.

Should you require an amendment to your booking (such as a change of dates or accommodation booked) The Regent will endeavour to accommodate your request but can offer no guarantee of being able to do so. Furthermore, The Regent do not accept any liability for any damage, loss, or additional expense incurred by you.

Should your request be to extend your stay, The Regent will again endeavour to meet such a request but can offer no guarantee of doing so. All requests for extensions to a booking period have to be received in writing / e-mail prior to confirmation and an amended booking summary will be e-mailed to you and require signature at or after check in. The Regent would appreciate as much notice as possible (in writing) in order to grant a request for an extension of stay and minimize the risk of another guest booking the studio/room.

Once a request to extend a stay has been confirmed The Regent, unless otherwise agreed, reserve the right to take all necessary additional payments from the credit card used to make the original booking.

The Regent also reserve the right to charge an administration fee (up to a maximum of £59 per person) for the amendment of a booking.

Cancellations

The Regent strongly advise that any travel arrangements of you and your party remain the responsibility of you and your party and you should therefore ensure that you have appropriate travel and personal insurance cover.
