Terms of Booking

By placing a booking with us (Reads Court Ltd, trading as The Blackpool Resort Family) you (the lead guest) and your booking party (guests) agree to the following terms and conditions as set-out. During your stay you agree to abide by the subsequent conditions as set-out. If you have any questions about booking with us, please contact us before making a booking.

By law, we must ask every guest or visitor to scan the NHS QR code using their NHS COVID-19 app or provide their name and contact details on arrival. This means it is a legal requirement for you to provide a name and contact details for every guest (not just the lead guest) on arrival. While we will provide the relevant QR codes and information, it is your responsibility to adhere to the Government’s Track and Trace programme on arrival and throughout your stay. Failure to do so may result in your contract with us being annulled.

In regard to changing Coronavirus restrictions and the Roadmap out of Lockdown, it is your responsibility to adhere to current restrictions in place and we have taken any booking in good faith that restrictions will be followed. Should we have concerns guidelines are not being followed, we reserve the right to end the stay with no refund / compensation due. 

 

Booking Process

To place a booking with us the lead guest must be at least 18 years of age. Parties of younger people (under 18) will need to be cleared with Management prior to accepting any booking.

The maximum number of staying guests per room is illustrated in the room occupancy details on the website. Where the person making the booking is different to the lead guest taking up the occupation, the person making the booking may be held responsible for cancellation, non-arrival and damages as set out within. Only the lead guest and the booking party can use the property and its facilities: any third-party visitors are only allowed access with prior agreement from Management.

Payments can be made online / over the phone using debit / credit card as well as by digital bank transfer. Any charges raised against us by our banks for handling dishonoured bank transfers or any other payments, must be reimbursed by the lead guest within seven (7) days of any request to do so.

At our discretion, Management will request a security deposit to secure the booking; this is normally required through a secure online payment link prior to arrival at the property and will be returned in full at the end of the stay, providing the property is left undamaged. It is our policy as a company not to take bookings for Stag or Hen Parties under any circumstances.

When making a booking, all guests agree to respect the privacy and peace of all other staying guests, neighbours and the owners at all times. We reserve the right to cancel a booking with immediate effect if guests are not honouring this agreement or causing a disturbance / nuisance to other guests, neighbours or the owners.
