WHY THE CANCELLATION POLICIES?
We want to thank you for considering staying us. We appreciate that you are taking the time to review the Cancellation Policies.
It is unfortunate, that we have to have a cancellation policy at all, but because we feel we offer a unique experience we want to share with you our reasons for having one.
As a private home bed and breakfast with only five guest rooms, we strive to offer a level of service and uniqueness that is not generally found in our price range. We are not a hotel and as such do not have the flexibility to move guests around as the need arises. When we make a commitment to you to provide you the rooms you requested, we take it seriously. We ask that you take it seriously as well. Without your understanding and support we would not be able to be in business very long.
So the cancellation policies are there, mostly as a reminder that consideration and thoughtfulness go a long way. We, at HarbourHills have enjoyed sharing our place with those who appreciate what we have created. A Home Away From Home with style and service.
NOTE: All cancellation requests must be in writing via letter or email to be considered valid. We will confirm your cancellation via return email.
A $50 fee per individually booked room (not part of a group) will be charged for a cancellation if reservation is cancelled more than 21 days from scheduled arrival date.
If canceled between 10 and 21 days, there will be a minimum one night or 25% charge of the total bill per room, whichever is greater.
Cancellations made within 10 days of arrival date will be charged in full, unless the accommodation can be re-booked.
If the accommodation is re-booked, prior to 21 days, only the $50 cancellation fee applies and charges will be refunded.
