Cancellation or a reduction in the number of people on any reservation, with less than 48 hours notice, will result in a £45 cancellation charge for each person cancelled. This charge will also be levied for No Shows.

We reserve the right to cancel any booking if:

  • Any part of the hotel is closed or otherwise unavailable because of events outside our control.
  • You or we become insolvent or in the case of an individual, become subject to a bankruptcy petition.
  • The booking might damage the reputation of the hotel.



In order to avoid any misunderstandings regarding reservations, the following are our terms and conditions of trading. All reservations are accepted on the basis of these terms and conditions.

Making a Reservation

All reservations made at Gidleigh Park are held on an option basis until the hotel receives confirmation.


In order to confirm a reservation, a debit or credit card is required as a guarantee.


Gidleigh Park Hotel reserves the right to require payment of a deposit to a predetermined amount, as specified at the time of reservation to secure all bookings. In the event that a cancellation fee needs to be implemented, the deposit becomes non-refundable and will be set against the cancellation fee. The balance will be charged to the credit card used to guarantee the booking.


On arrival at the hotel, guests may be required to provide a credit/debit card for pre-authorisation which will be the equivalent to the total amount outstanding for the accommodation. The pre-authorisation is not a charge and no funds will be debited from your account until your departure. For further details about pre-authorisations please ask at reception or call the hotel prior to arrival.


Cheques and travellers cheques are not accepted as payment.


All non UK travellers must present a passport on arrival to Reception

Room Cancellation, Amendments , Non-Arrivals & Early Departures

Our cancellation policy is 3pm, 14 days prior to arrival (hotel local time). If your booking is not cancelled or postponed in accordance with this policy, the credit card provided will be charged for the first night’s stay. This policy also applies in the event of non-arrivals and early departures. We recommend that travel insurance is taken to cover you for any unforeseen circumstances. Gidleigh Park will issue a number to confirm your cancellation.


All rates quoted are inclusive of 20% VAT
