Special offer rates may not be combined with any other offer. Supplements will be applied to certain rooms. All reservations require written confirmation.

Cancellations, Amendments & Non Arrivals

All cancellations and amendments must be adhered to in line with the terms and conditions of your booking. Upon written confirmation of a booking by the hotel, the relevant terms and conditions shall be deemed accepted unless advised otherwise by you in writing. Any prepaid or secured bookings will be charged in full in the event a cancellation or amendment does not adhere to the agreed booking terms.

Any Non Arrivals will be considered a cancellation outside of the agreed terms and conditions of your booking and will be charged in full using the original payment method provided.

Cancellations and changes made by the hotel

In the unlikely event that we are unable to accommodate a confirmed reservation for any reason (including unusual or unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control) at our sole discretion, and having regard to the prevailing circumstances, we may need to offer alternative accommodation of an equal or superior standard, cancel or amend your booking. We will tell you as soon as possible of any changes to your booking and where a booking is cancelled we will agree to transfer any prepayment in full to another date of your choosing. Rates for new dates may vary from original booking. This does not apply to minor changes or events during your stay.

Service Charge

Eden Hotel Collection’s policy of including a discretionary service charge across certain of the hotel’s retail outlets was introduced in 2018, with the aim to reward every member of staff who contributes towards the guest experience.

It is extremely difficult to acknowledge exceptional service from those members of staff who operate in less visible hotel departments, which is why the service charge is distributed equally.  For our guests who choose to pay the service charge, 100% of this money is given back to the hotel’s staff.

Bovey Castle is responsible for allocating funds for departmental outings, monthly performance bonuses, gifts for special occasions and personal development grants.  Internally, the service charge has funded a member of staff to provide English language lessons to colleagues, paid out for gifts to mark births and marriages, as well as offering financial assistance during compassionate circumstances.

The impact of the hotel’s service charge on the future development of staff, as well as its recognition of ambition and dedication, are essential elements of employment at our hotels.

Eden Hotel Collection service charge is purely discretional, which we carefully highlight throughout the entire guest experience.  Services charges rates apply on the following: 10% on food and beverages, 10% transport, 5% on accommodation, 5% on events and 5% on spa.  No further gratuities are required.
