Accommodation [top]

Tariffs - All terms and tariffs quoted by advertisers are as accurate as possible at the time of going to press. However, since it is necessary for the production of this web site to commence at least three months before its eventual publication it is possible that some increases could take place before the holiday season commences.

ALL TERMS AND TARIFFS QUOTED INCLUDE VAT AT 17.5% AND ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE IF THE RATE OF VAT IS ALTERED. PROSPECTIVE VISITORS ARE, THEREFORE, ADVISED TO CHECK CURRENT TARIFFS WITH HOLIDAY ESTABLISHMENTS BEFORE FINALISING A BOOKING SO THAT MISUNDERSTANDINGS ABOUT TARIFFS AND TERMS ARE AVOIDED.
IT IS REGRETTED THAT SEFTON COUNCIL AS PUBLISHERS OF THIS WEB SITE CANNOT ENTER INTO ANY DISPUTES CONCERNING TARIFFS AND HOTELS ACCOUNTS WHICH ARE PRIVATE MATTERS BETWEEN THE ACCOMMODATION PROVIDER AND THEIR GUESTS.

Reservations and Cancellations - When writing for accommodation please ensure that your full requirements are clearly stated particularly in respect of the numbers in your party, the exact number and type of accommodation required, any special requirements, and the arrival and departure dates.

It is always helpful to enclose a stamped addressed envelope. In the event of accom-modation which has been confirmed having to be cancelled for any reason, it is possible that a claim could arise from either party, (i.e. from the hotelier or from the visitor). Visitors are recommended to take out a holiday cancellation insurance policy which for a modest sum will afford protection against any such claims.

Complaints - If a holiday visitor has any reason to complain about the accommodation, food or service at any of the establishments included in this web site it is strongly recommended that such complaints should be made in the first instance direct to the proprietor or manager of the establishment concerned at the time that they arise. Most responsible managements will be pleased to investigate and remedy any complaints from their visitors. It is often difficult to deal satisfactorily with a complaint which is made after the visitor has returned home and when facts cannot be checked in the presence of all parties involved.

For this reason the Council cannot investigate any complaints which have not been reported to the hotelier at the time they arise or which are only reported to the Council after the visitor has returned home.
