The Company enters into this Agreement as principal for Bookings made for the hotels it owns and as agent where a Booking is made for a hotel that it operates on behalf of the Hotel Owner. The booking confirmation will clearly state the identity of the Owner.
In these Terms and Conditions the following definitions apply:
“Company” or “We” means Adham Hotels Ltd (company no 12415376) whose registered office is at Imperial Crown Hotel, 42-46 Horton street, Halifax, HX1 1QE.
“Booking” means the booking for accommodation, functions and/or any other services or items made with us.
“Ts&Cs” mean these terms and conditions.
“Website” means www.imperialhalifax.com or any other website owned or operated by us relating to a Hotel from time to time.
“VAT” means value added tax.
All Bookings at the Hotel are subject to these Terms.
We will take your credit/debit card details at time of booking or check-in. This is so we have an authorised method of payment for any sums that become owed to us. We will also have the right to require full payment in advance or a deposit at the time of booking in certain circumstances, or if the booking includes the supply of certain items or services. No booking shall be treated as confirmed until the details and/or payment/deposit described in this paragraph have been provided.
The prices displayed on the websites are an average charge per night per person, until a rate is selected. Any meals, service, or VAT (at the prevailing rate) are included only if specified. A minimum length of stay, deposit, cancellation charge and other conditions may apply to certain rates, as specified. Once a rate is selected on the websites, the total for your requested stay shall be displayed on the reservation summary. Prices shall be charged in the local currency of the hotel and any currency conversion facility is provided as an approximation tool only. Please refer to the Currency Disclaimer for more details.
The VAT breakdown shown is indicative based on the current rate of VAT, and the expected VAT treatment of the goods or services. VAT will be payable at the prevailing rate applicable at the tax point of the invoice or booking confirmation issued and may change depending on the actual rate and the VAT treatment of the goods and services purchased at that date.
Price lists for additional items, such as restaurant meals and room service, are on display at relevant locations within the Hotel and are available on request.
In the interests of security and to prevent fraud, at the time of check-in, guests may be required to confirm their identity by providing their booking reference, their passport/identity card/driving license and a valid credit or debit card, which will be swiped in the presence of the card holder. If guests are travelling from outside the UK, Ireland or any country in the Commonwealth, we are also obliged by law to require guests to provide the number and place of issue of their passport/identity card and details of their next destination. These records will be kept for at least 12 months and may be disclosed or made available for inspection by any police officer or as otherwise required by applicable law in connection with the prevention or investigation of crime. The information above may be requested for each member of your party over the age of 16 and we reserve the right to refuse entry to persons who cannot provide the information set out above.
Unless otherwise stated on the booking confirmation, guests may check-in at any time from 3.00 pm on the scheduled day of arrival. All rooms that have been secured by credit/debit card or prepaid at the time of booking will be held until 11.59 pm on the scheduled day of arrival unless otherwise agreed directly with the Hotel. Any non-secured reservation will be held until 4.00 pm on the day of arrival, at which time we will be entitled to re-let the room unless the guest has notified the hotel of a late arrival.
On the day of departure, we kindly ask all guests to vacate their rooms by 11.00 am (unless a later departure is stated as part of your Booking). Late check-out after this time can be requested subject to availability and will be charged at an hourly rate at the discretion of the Hotel.
Rooms are subject to maximum occupancy rules set by the Hotel. If you would like further details, please contact the Company or the Hotel.
We accept the following methods of payment: credit cards – American Express, MasterCard and Visa; debit cards – Visa/Delta and Visa/Electron.
For advance purchase rates the card you booked with must be presented on arrival, along with the appropriate ID.
At the time of check-in, we will authorise the accommodation charges (room rate, VAT, and any service charge) and anticipated incidentals for the duration of your stay against your credit/debit card. We may also choose to accept a deposit in place of payment card authorisation by another valid form of payment, including cash.
During your stay the Hotel’s system will calculate the incidentals charged to your room on a daily basis. If the cost of those incidentals exceeds the authorisation taken on check-in, further authorisation will automatically be requested and if such authorisation is not available, we may request another method of settlement or a deposit to be provided, failing which we reserve the right to restrict access to your room.
All outstanding charges must be paid for in full on check-out from the Hotel. If the outstanding charges do not exceed the authorisation taken on check-in, the authorisation for the amount not utilised will be released. However, we cannot control how long it takes for your bank to affect such release. If staying for multiple nights at the Hotel we may require you to make payment for any outstanding charges on a more frequent basis during your stay.
CANCELLATION POLICY AND NO SHOWS
The cancellation policy varies according to the rate that is booked. Please refer to the individual full rate descriptions given at time of booking.
For rates marked as “Flexible Rates” – These are cancellable without charge up to 10.00 am local time on the day of arrival. Cancellation and non-arrival charges apply after the relevant time and will be charged to the credit/debit card supplied at the time of booking. We reserve the right to charge for first night accommodation per room booked if the above cancellation requirements are not met.
For rates marked “Advance-Purchase” – We require full prepayment for the entire stay at the time of the booking and this is non-refundable and the booking non-changeable. Prepayment is charged to the credit/debit card supplied at the time of the booking. Cancellation or non-arrival will result in the forfeiture of the prepayment.
CHANGES OR CANCELLATION BY THE COMPANY
Very occasionally, we may need to cancel your booking. In such circumstances you will be given a full refund, but we shall have no further liability to you arising out of such cancellation. We will, however, use reasonable endeavours to try and re-locate any confirmed booking cancelled by us to an alternative location similar in standard to the hotel.
Your booking is for a class of room in the hotel and does not guarantee that you will be able to stay in a specific room or in the same room for the duration of your stay. If you have indicated a preference for a particular room through a “choose your own room” facility on the website, we will use our reasonable efforts to honour this preference. However, we may need to allocate an alternative room to you for operational or safety reasons. If we need to move you to a different room during your booking worth a lower rate than the rate you booked at, we will refund you the difference in the rates.
GROUP BOOKINGS CANCELLATION POLICY:
Our cancellation policy is as follows: Cancel for free 28 days prior to arrival. Up to two weeks prior to arrival, 50% of the total value will be retained; up to one week prior to arrival, 75% the booking value will be retained. For cancellations less that one week prior to arrival, the full amount will be retained.
We reserve the right and you hereby authorise us to charge your credit or debit card for any damage incurred to your room or the hotel during your stay (including without limitation specialist cleaning), or for any items that are missing when you leave.
Dependent on your individual needs, a selection of specifically designed rooms is provided at each of our hotels.
Where a hotel has its own car park, there may be a charge and/or limited spaces available and space may not be available for the duration of your stay. Terms and conditions may also apply to car park use. Please contact the hotel directly for more information. Cars and their contents are left at the customer’s own risk. We do not accept responsibility for loss or damage (save as may not be excluded or restricted by applicable law).
Please be aware that at certain times throughout the year some of our hotels may host weddings, events, and parties, which you may feel would be an intrusion on your break. Please contact the hotel directly in advance of your stay for further information.
Guests are always requested to conduct themselves appropriately and to comply with company procedures and/or requests with regard to conduct and respect for the property of the hotel, its employees and guests, and their health and safety. Guests are requested not to disrupt the comfort and enjoyment of other guests, the smooth running of the hotel, or cause offence to other guests or our members of staff. We reserve the right to refuse accommodation or services or remove you and members of your party from the hotel if, in our reasonable opinion, we consider this provision to have been breached. Where this is the case, we shall have no obligation to refund you for lost accommodation, other services or any other loss or expense incurred.
Guests are not permitted to smoke in rooms or public areas. Penalty from £100.00 may apply subject to hotel discretion (Damage caused).
All children (a person under 16 years of age) staying at the hotel must be accompanied by an adult and must always be supervised by an adult.
Cots and extra beds are available in most of our properties. However, these are limited and subject to availability. Additional charges may apply. Please check at the time of booking.
Guide dogs are accepted with prior arrangement but otherwise no pets are allowed at the hotel.
The Company accepts no liability and will not pay any compensation where the performance of its obligations is prevented or affected directly or indirectly by or as a result of force majeure or any circumstances beyond its reasonable control. This includes, but is not limited to: flood, earthquake, extreme adverse weather conditions, natural disasters, other acts of God, acts of terrorism, fire or failure of electric power, gas, water or other utility service, plant machinery, computers, vehicles or any collapse of building structures.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
The Company will not be responsible for the loss or damage of any property left in the Hotel, other than as is required under the Hotel Proprietor’s Act 1956 and the Local London Authorities Act 2004 (a copy of the notice under such Acts is displayed in the reception of the hotel) or any other applicable law.
The Company will not be liable for any indirect, consequential or pure economic loss or any loss of profit, goodwill or opportunity (whether caused by the negligence of the Company, its employees, contractor or agents, or otherwise). The Company’s total liability shall not exceed the value of the charges received by it under the contract.
Nothing contained in the contract or in any other document referred to or incorporated in it shall be read or construed as excluding any liability for death or personal injury caused by the Company’s negligence, or liability for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.
GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION
The contract and any non-contractual obligations arising in connection with it are governed by English law. The English courts have exclusive jurisdiction to determine any dispute arising in connection with the contract, including disputes relating to any non-contractual obligations.
Each party irrevocably waives any objection which it may now or later have to proceedings being brought in the English courts (on the grounds that the English courts are not a convenient forum or otherwise).
