Pre-authorisation Policy

You will be asked for a pre-authorisation on arrival.

Cancellation Charges

If you cancel your reservation, you will be charged at the full rate unless cancelled by 2.00pm on the day prior to arrival. If you fail to arrive, or checkout a day earlier than expected, you will be charged at the full rate, unless your room is re-let or we have received notification by 2.00pm on the day prior to arrival.

We request that all reservations are confirmed with a credit/debit card number, and you are reminded that this constitutes a contract between yourself and The Bell Hotel, which is governed by English law.

Accommodation deposits are non-refundable, but can be held against a future booking.

If you do not confirm with a credit card number, by 2.00pm on the day prior to arrival, your booking will be released.

For bookings on the day of arrival, we require a further refundable deposit for any charges that may be incurred. These conditions do not apply to Apex rates which are bookable in advance and non-refundable.

For the comfort of all our guests, The Bell Hotel is a completely non-smoking hotel. Smoking in the rooms, or any activity which leaves a distinguishing odour will result in a minimum £200.00 cleaning charge in order for us to restore the room back to an acceptable condition.

We politely request that guests of Beales Hotels do not bring in their own alcoholic beverages or take away food.
