Grantley Hall has taken great care to comply with the guidelines and regulations set out by the Government to combat the spread of the coronavirus and to protect the health and wellbeing of our guests and team members to the best of our ability. However, due to the very nature of the virus as a highly contagious disease, the hotel cannot be held accountable should any customers contract the disease as guests may be exposed to persons and situations unknown to us, which are out with our control, and therefore cannot pursue any claims against the company relating to coronavirus. Guests are respectfully requested to comply with the hotel’s Covid-19 measures for the safety and wellbeing of themselves, other guests and team members and failure to do so will be taken very seriously and may result in guests being requested to leave the premises.
Covid-19 – the current coronavirus pandemic and subsequent government restrictions are out with the control of both Grantley Hall and our guests. Where government guidelines force the full or partial closure of our restaurants or hotel then any bookings and deposits will become fully transferrable to a future date and supersede the specific booking terms and conditions of any individual reservation.
Should the future date carry higher charges for products or services then the additional amounts will need to be paid as part of the normal deposit process. For example, should a midweek booking be cancelled and then re-booked at a weekend, then additional charges will apply. Future dates may have a minimum length of stay required.
Covid-19 – the current coronavirus pandemic and subsequent government restrictions are out with the control of both Grantley Hall and our clients and have presented many companies, and particularly hotel and hospitality businesses, with unprecedented decisions regarding the implementation of existing contracts.
Where government guidelines force the closure of our hotel or impose restrictions on large gatherings then any bookings and deposits will become fully transferrable to a future date.
Where possible Grantley Hall will honour the contracted rates on future dates provided like for like days of the week and months of the year are booked.
Should a client cancel an event at Grantley Hall for reasons related to Covid-19 which Grantley Hall is physically able to fulfil and upon which there are no government restrictions in place to impede the event from taking place then full cancellation charges will be applied as per the original signed contract.
Grantley Hall urge all our clients to ensure they have the relevant events or wedding insurance in place to cover themselves for all eventualities.
Bookings that have been subject to an initial postponement and rebooking as a result of Grantley Hall or Governments decisions, and are then subject to a second postponement and which rebooking becomes impossible, Grantley Hall will be prepared to enter into negotiations on the contracted cancellation policy within reasonable limits and depending on the specific circumstances of each individual event.
CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT
Time: Unless otherwise agreed bedrooms will be available from 3pm and we kindly ask that bedrooms are vacated for 11am.
Security: In the interests of security and the prevention of fraud, we will ask you to confirm your identity by providing your passport, driving licence or other form of photo ID upon check-in.
Guests travelling from outside the UK: If you are travelling from outside the UK, we are required by law to ask for your passport and the place of your next destination at the time of check-in. If you do not have your passport, we reserve the right not to honour your reservation. We will retain this record for a period of 12 months and we may disclose this to a police officer or other official as required by law. We are required to collect this information in relation to each member of your party over the age of 16 and we reserve the right to refuse entry to Grantley Hall to anyone who is unable to provide this information.
Guests under 18: Please note that all guests under the age of 18 must be accompanied by adults during their stay. We reserve the right to refuse entry to Grantley Hall to anyone who is under the age of 18.
The price of your stay (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated when you make your reservation via the website, or as communicated to you if you place your booking by telephone or email. We will confirm the price of your stay in our confirmation email, so please double-check that when you receive it and let us know if you notice any abnormalities. Where there has been an obvious discrepancy between our room charges and the price stated on our website or otherwise communicated to you, we reserve the right to charge our correct room charges or to cancel your reservation.
Grantley Hall reserves the right to ask guests to provide a valid credit or debit card upon check-in. A credit card pre-authorisation may be taken upon arrival for the full room rate (unless the room rate has been paid in advance), excluding the deposit. You may be required to show the debit or credit card used to pay your deposit upon check-in. If the same card cannot be presented on arrival, the reception team may need to refund the original charge and re-take the accommodation charges from a new card.
All charges incurred during your stay, for example food and beverage charges and any room charges which you have not paid for in advance, must be settled upon check-out, when you will have the option to provide a different method of payment should you wish. Please let us know before you check-out if you notice any abnormalities in any charges which have been assigned to your room as these cannot be rectified after departure.
The optional service charge is a payment which recognises and rewards all employees who deliver outstanding guest service. The optional service charge is 12.5% on food and drink. If you do not wish to pay it you can asked for it to be removed from your bill. The service charge is shared amongst all members of the Grantley Hall team. We believe the whole team, regardless of their role, are involved in delivering outstanding guest service so it is fair to reward everyone.
During your stay, we ask that you comply with the following house rules:
Our Rooms: The images of our rooms and facilities on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Each part of Grantley Hall is slightly different and your room or the facilities you use during your stay may vary slightly from those images. Your reservation is for a particular type of room and, whilst we will try to accommodate specific room requests, unfortunately we cannot guarantee that you will be able to stay in a specific room during your stay.
Food & Drink: Grantley Hall offers many options for food and drink, including room service, some of which are available 24 hours a day. Please refrain from bringing in any outside food or beverages, unless medically necessary.
Noise: All guests are asked to respect our other guests and nearby residents when in their room, hallways, any other premises of the hotel or while in the surrounding area.
No Smoking: No smoking is permitted inside Grantley Hall at any time, whether in your room or elsewhere. Grantley Hall has designated smoking areas and our staff will happily advise you of their location upon request. We reserve the right to charge the card you have used to secure your booking a reasonable fee in respect of specialist cleaning in the event we suspect smoking has taken place in your room(s) during your stay. We also reserve the right to terminate the remainder of your stay in the event that we find you have failed to comply with our smoking policy.
Children’s Policy: Children aged between 8 and 15 years staying in their parents’ room on rollaway beds are charged at £100 per room per night.
Please see separate children’s policy for reference.
Accidents: Guests must report any accident or injury they or their guests may have whilst on the premises immediately to a member of management and in any event, within 24 hours of the incident. This information is needed in order to comply with health and safety obligations and for insurance purposes.

We reserve the right to eject you from the premises and cancel the remainder of your stay in the event that you fail to respect this policy.
Damage: We kindly ask that all guests respect Grantley Hall rooms and facilities. In the event that there is any damage to the room(s) during your stay or if any items are missing from your room(s) upon your departure, we reserve the right to charge the card you have used to secure your booking a reasonable fee in respect of such damage and/or missing items.
Parking: We are unable to take responsibility for your car or any belongings that are in your car whilst you are onsite. Please make sure that all valuables are removed from your car and stored in the safes provided.

If you have reserved a table in one of our restaurants and change your mind, or decide that you no longer wish to dine during your stay, please kindly let us know 48 hours prior to arrival.
Due to the high number of no-shows currently being experienced in our restaurant, Shaun Rankin at Grantley Hall, we have deemed it necessary to amend our booking policies accordingly. We kindly ask that any cancellation to your reservation be made no less than 48 hours prior. For no shows or late cancellations, you will be subject to a charge of £50 per person that will be applied to the credit card on file. We experience very high demand for Shaun Rankin at Grantley Hall and it is detrimental to our business, and to the wishes of other guests who would like to dine in this restaurant, when reserved tables are not taken up. We are happy to accept cancellations up to 48 hours prior to arrival with no charges and amendments to group sizes may also be made up 48 hours prior to arrival with no charge.
