All accommodation reservations must be confirmed at the time of booking by either providing a valid credit/debit card guarantee, deposit or full prepayment. By issuing the credit/debit card details the booker is giving Lavinia House permission to take payment from the card if a reservation is cancelled or if an account is left unpaid, according to the agreed terms of the booking, Lavinia House does not hold provisional bookings. Once a reservation has been confirmed Lavinia House will confirm the reservation by email, unless otherwise agreed by another suitable method.
For future guest's security, when a key is lost, the lock will need to be replaced. Therefore, lost keys will be charged at £50.00. This is to cover the new lock, keys, key fob and key tag. This sum also covers the labour to fit the new mechanism.
