BEST RATE GUARANTEE
We promise that you won’t be able to find a lower rate for any of our hotels anywhere online. We understand that looking for the lowest rate can be time consuming and frustrating. That’s why we ensure we have the lowest rate available on our own website so you won’t need to shop around. On the unlikely occasion that a lower rate is not listed on www.staywellgroup.com, please contact us and we will be happy to match it. The rate must be publicly available and valid for the same arrival and departure dates., the same room type and the same booking terms and conditions. The rate must be listed in the local currency of the hotel, not influenced by a currency conversion and include goods and services tax (GST). Should the lower rate be the result of a third party website selling StayWell Group rooms at a loss (ie a lower rate than the rate we have provided the room to the third party website), then we may not be able to match that rate and this guarantee will not apply.
BOOKING AMENDMENTS/CANCELLATIONS/NO SHOWS
The conditions applicable to booking amendments and cancellations are generally set out in the booking confirmation. If no such term is set out in the booking confirmation then our standard cancellation policy will apply. This requires reservation cancellations or changes to be advised to us by 2PM (14:00) at the local time for the hotel to which the booking relates, two (2) days prior to arrival.
If you fail to cancel or amend a booking prior to the cut off time applicable to it then the booking will be treated as a non-cancellable booking. Cancellation of our bookings is permitted if the cancellation is made prior to the cut off time applicable to the booking.
Amendment of bookings is subject to availability and approval of the hotel for which the booking has been made and any request for a change to the booking must be made before the cut off time for the cancellation of the booking. Please note that a higher rate may apply to an amended booking if the change is accepted by the relevant hotel.
Some of our bookings are offered on the basis that they are fully prepaid and no cancellation or amendment of these bookings are permitted. Rates such as early bird or advanced purchase rates, or saver value rates, are strictly non-refundable and amendments and cancellations of these bookings will not be permitted.
Regardless of the type of booking, if a guest does not arrive by 6PM on the arrival date at the local time for the hotel to which the booking relates without confirming a later arrival time with the hotel, the reservation will be released and 100% of total charges set out in your booking confirmation will be payable by you. Any prepayment will also be forfeited.
Over high demand and special event periods, alternative cancellation policies may apply if notified to you in writing on the booking confirmation. The cancellation policy for these bookings will be communicated during the reservation process and can be supplied in a confirmation email when requested.
Car parking is subject to availability. Car Parking may be available at some of our participating hotels. At some hotels parking is available free of charge and at some of our hotels parking is available if the parking charge applicable at the hotel is paid by you.
