Deposits and payments

Like many other businesses, we will be operating a cashless environment.  All payments must be made by credit or debit card.  All bookings will need to be paid in full at the time of booking.

Local Lockdown

If the place you live in is put into local lockdown by the government meaning that you will be unable to travel on your intended dates, you must contact us immediately. If you have already paid your deposit, do not worry, you can rebook your stay with us and we will use the deposit already paid as the deposit towards your rearranged stay. This stay must be booked within the next three months and taken within twelve months of your original stay date.

If Queenstown is placed in local lockdown, the same process as above will be followed for any guests due to arrive within the local lockdown timescales.

If you are staying with us when the local lockdown is announced, you must return home immediately to self-isolate. The remaining balance of your stay will be refunded.

Arrival and Check in

As usual, you’re asked for your anticipated arrival time. In light of COVID-19, this is important.  If you are significantly delayed on your journey, please let us know as soon as you can.

We will already have checked that you have provided the full address and telephone contact numbers for each guest, this information will be used in the unlikely event that the track and trace process needs to be implemented.

Hand sanitiser will also be available.


For your continued safety your room will not be serviced during your stay.  If you require anything then please telephone 027 6821253 and replacements will be placed outside your door.

If You Display Coronavirus Symptoms During Your Stay

If you display Coronavirus symptoms during your stay, please contact us and we will direct you to nearest testing station and book your appointment. Should those test results come back positive and you are required to self- isolate, you should leave immediately and make your way home if at all possible.

If you cannot travel and need to self-isolate in your accommodation, you must remain in your room at all times. We will bring all food and drinks to your room.
