3 Group reservations
A reservation of five rooms or more is usually considered a group booking.
If you wish to make a group booking, please call our Central Reservations team on 01635 39673.
4 Room prices
The Lodge operates dynamic pricing and the price of our rooms fluctuates based on demand. When you make a reservation request, we’ll give you a total price for the rooms and number of nights you’ve requested. The price you pay is the price quoted to you at the time you make your reservation.
Room prices are per room, per night and are inclusive of VAT at the applicable rate at the time of your reservation. If the rate of VAT changes between the date of your reservation and the date of your stay, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the reservation in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
Breakfast is complimentary (full English and/or continental), unless otherwise stated. All other food, drink and other extras are not included in the room price but you may be able to add them to your reservation during the booking process or they may be available to you during your stay. All other meals and extras must be paid for separately.
Fully flexible: If you book a Fully Flexible rate you may choose whether to pay for your room in full at the time of booking or to pay on arrival. You will be able to amend or cancel your reservation up to midnight on the day before arrival without charge. If you cancel your reservation after midnight on the day before arrival (or make a reservation after midnight on the day before your arrival day and subsequently cancel it) you will be charged a cancellation charge equivalent to one night’s accommodation for each room booked and for any meals and extras booked for the first day of your stay.
Advance Saver: Advance Saver is a discounted rate that may be available subject to availability. Payment in full is required for all Advance Saver bookings at the time of booking. Because Advance Saver rooms are made available at a discounted rate, these rooms and any meals or other extras booked with them cannot be amended or refunded.
The maximum room occupancy is two adults. Adjoining Family rooms (where available) can accommodate two adults and two children (under the age of 16). You must not exceed the maximum occupancy for the room allocated to you.
Children under 16 are not permitted to stay at The Lodge unless a parent or guardian is also staying in the hotel.
The Lodge has two rooms which have been specially adapted for customers with disabilities. For more information please contact our Reservations team on 01635 39673 or email email@example.com
7 Special requests
Although we will always try to accommodate special requests, all rooms are subject to availability.
Complimentary breakfast (full English and/or continental) is included in the price of your room, unless otherwise stated.
We offer a limited evening menu between the hours of 7pm and 9pm, please ask at reception.
9 Paying for your room
If you have not paid for your room and any extras added to your booking in full at the time you make your reservation, you will need to pay on arrival.
Payment may be made by cash, credit/debit card (Nb. we do not accept American Express or Diners Club). The expiry date of your debit/credit card must be later than the end of your stay. We do not accept personal cheques.
Rooms may be paid for by business cheque, however we must receive all business cheques at least three weeks before the arrival date – cheques should be made payable to Newbury Racecourse plc.
Your right to cancel
Fully Flexible rooms may be cancelled before midnight on the day before the arrival date. If you cancel your reservation before midnight on the day before the day of arrival and have paid for the room in advance by debit/credit card, a full refund will be processed to the same debit/credit card the next working day though it may take a few days for the funds to reach your account. A cancellation reference will be given and should be retained as proof of cancellation.
If you cancel a reservation after midnight on the day before the day of arrival and have not already paid for the room in advance you will be charged a cancellation charge equivalent to one night’s accommodation per room booked and for any meals and other extras booked for the first day of your stay. A cancellation reference will be given and should be retained as proof of cancellation.
If you decide to shorten your stay you must inform reception at The Lodge by 11am on the day you wish to check out. Otherwise you will be charged a cancellation charge equivalent to one night’s accommodation per room booked and for any meals and other extras booked for the following day.
The first night of any booking made after 00:00 hrs on the day of arrival and the cost of any meals and other extras booked for the following day is non-refundable.
Because Advance Saver rooms are made available at a discounted rate, these rooms and any meals or other extras booked with them cannot be cancelled, amended or refunded.
You are not entitled to cancel or withdraw from your reservation under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013.
Our right to cancel
We may cancel your reservation at any time with immediate effect by giving you written notice (which includes email) if:
- you do not pay us when you are required to do so; or
- you break the contract between us in any other material way.
If we cancel your reservation where you are at fault, we reserve our legal rights in respect of your breach of contract.
Events outside our control
We may also cancel your reservation if an event outside of our control (including industrial action, explosion, fire, flooding, and failure of power and/or water supplies or emergency evacuation) means that we are unable to make your room available to you. In this case we will contact you to let you know as soon as possible and:
- if you have already paid for your room, we will refund your payment to you; or
- if you have not yet paid for your room, you will not have to make any payment to us.
