These are the terms and conditions that apply when you reserve a room at a Falcon Hotel hotel located in UK or Ireland using one of our digital channels (such as our website, mobile site or app).
You will be asked to confirm your acceptance of these terms and conditions when you make a reservation.
We reserve the right to amend these terms and conditions at any time and you should therefore check them each time you make a reservation. The terms and conditions applying to your reservation will be those in place on the date that you make your reservation.
To reserve your room please follow the instructions on the website, mobile site or app (as applicable).
You must be at least 16 years old to make a reservation.
You will need to provide your credit or debit card details to secure your reservation.
Please check that the details of your reservation are complete and accurate before you confirm your reservation. We will not be liable for any delay or non-performance if you provide us with incorrect information.
We will confirm our acceptance of your reservation by sending you an email to the email address that you provide during the reservation process. The contract between us for the provision of your room and any additional services added to your reservation will be formed when you receive this email confirmation from us.
If you think that there is a mistake in your reservation or if you require any changes to a confirmed reservation, please contact us to discuss.
3 Room prices
Falcon Hotel adopts 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.
The maximum room occupancy is as described for each room type. You must not exceed the maximum occupancy for the room allocated to you.
Children under 16 are not permitted to stay in a Falcon Hotel hotel unless a parent or guardian is also staying in the hotel.
Falcon Hotel is not really equipped to assist disabled guests including those of harder hearing who may not be able to hear fire alarms. Guests who do decide to stay with us will do so at their own risk.
6 Special requests
Although Falcon Hotel will try to accommodate special requests, all rooms are subject to availability.
Only breakfast is included in room rates. We do not provide any other meals. Breakfast times are advertised at the reception. You must be seated at your table 15 minutes prior to closing time.
8 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 The expiry date of your debit/credit card must be later than the end of your stay. We do not accept personal cheques or family discount cards. Use of cards carries a surcharge of 3%. We accept cash and accept USD or Euro in cash at the rate per xe.com on the day of your check-in.
Guests will be charged for 1st night if they cancel after their reservation is confirmed and total price if cancelled in the 3 days before arrival or in case of no show. In other words your reservation becomes fully non-refundable if you cancel within 3 days of your stay. If you decide to shorten your stay you will be charged a cancellation charge equivalent to the remaining charge for your stay.
Because Falcon Hotel rooms are made available at a discounted rate, the rooms and any meals or other extras booked with them cannot be cancelled, amended or refunded in the 3 days to your arrival. You may wish to take out room cancellation insurance in case you need to cancel your reservation. 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:
Invalid or declined cards for any reservation will be cancelled immediately upon discovery of such a case and your room will be released for sale. To avoid disappointment all guests are advised to check and recheck their card details as they submit on their booking and ensure there are enough funds or credit limits for their entire reservation.
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.
Save as set out above, we will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations that is caused by an event outside of our control.
