The Arran Lodge Terms and Conditions

The Arran Lodge provides room only accommodation for up to 25 people.  Entrance is 4pm on the day of arrival to check out by 10am on the day of departure unless otherwise agreed.  All bedrooms are on the 1st or 2nd floor and are not suitable for mobility impaired.

Our large function room is available for exclusive hire.  This provides space for dining for 70, an evening venue for 100.
A £1000 good housekeeping deposit is required when you pay the balance. This will be refunded a week after departure less the cost of any damages or extra cleaning.

We recommend you take out holiday travel insurance when you first make your booking that covers the cost of your venue hire.

1. Payment of the deposit is deemed to be a firm booking and it is assumed that the Hirer has read and agrees to abide by the hiring terms and conditions which can be found on this website If accepted, the Hirer becomes liable for the full balance of charges which are payable 1 month prior to the commencement of the holiday. Non-payment of the balance of the hire charges by the due date will result in the owner treating the property as being available for re-booking and loss of deposit by the Hirer.

2. If the Hirer cancels a confirmed booking they remain liable for payment of the full cost of the holiday. Upon receipt of written confirmation of the cancellation from the Hirer, we will endeavour to re-let the property and if successful will make a refund to the Hirer less the 10% non refundable deposit

3. The number of persons occupying a property must not exceed the maximum occupancy level of 25 people without prior consent of the owner. The owner reserves the right to terminate the occupancy of the property without notice or refund in the case of a breach of this condition. If you are planning to use the house as a venue for more than 25 people there is an extra charge and you will have to supply the extra cutlery and glasses required.

4. The Hirer is responsible for the condition of the property and its entire contents during the hire period, fair wear and tear accepted. The Hirer will make good any damage or loss and leave the property and contents in clean and tidy condition. The person held to be responsible for the hiring party will be the person who made the booking. We request that any breakages or damage is made known to us, so that repair or replacement can be affected without delay.

5. Pets are allowed at The Arran Lodge by prior arrangement. Please bring your pets' feeding bowls and bedding with you. Dogs are not allowed on the furniture.  Woopsie bags must be used when taking dogs out. Dogs must not be left unattended.  No extra charge is made.

6. Bed linen, heat and power are included in the price. Please strip the linen from any beds you have used and leave used towels in the shower.

7. We reserve the right to refuse to hand over properties to any person or persons who in our opinion are not suitable to take charge. In such cases 50% of the hire charges shall be refunded in full and the liability of the owner shall cease. If we are prevented, because of circumstances outwith our control (e.g. fire damage, drought or the interruption of utility supplies) from putting the property at the disposal of the Hirer, the hire charges shall be refunded in full but the Hirer will have no further claim against the owner.

8. It is important to us that holidaymakers enjoy their holiday and every effort has been made to ensure this. However, in the unlikely event of dissatisfaction with the property or any subsequent problem, the Hirer must immediately contact the owner so that the opportunity to rectify the problem is given. Under no circumstances will any refunds be considered if the property owner has not been given the opportunity to rectify any problems during the Hirer's stay.

9. The contract affected between the Hirer and the owner of the property is in the terms agreed in Schedule 4 Section 8 of the Housing (Scotland) Act 1988 and confers on the Hirer the right to occupy the property for the period agreed for holiday purposes only.

10. THIS IS A STRICTLY NO SMOKING HOUSE. There will be a charge of £100 if any smell of smoke is detected in the rooms.

Cookies & Google Analytics

An HTTP cookie—commonly referred to as just "cookie"—is a parcel of text sent back and forth between a web browser and the server it accesses. Its original purpose was to provide a state management mechanism between a web browser and a web server. Without a cookie (or a similar solution), a web server cannot distinguish between different users, or determine any relationship between sequential page visits made by the same user. For this reason, cookies are used to differentiate one user from another and to pass information from page to page during a single user's website session. A web server uses cookies to collect data about a given browser, along with the information requested and sent by the browser's operator (the visitor). Cookies do not identify people, but rather they are defined themselves by a combination of a computer, a user account, and a browser.

Google Analytics tracking (and most web tracking software) uses cookies in order to provide meaningful reports about your site visitors. However, Google Analytics cookies do not collect personal data about your website visitors.

How Google Analytics Uses Cookies

Google Analytics uses cookies to define user sessions, as well as to provide a number of key features in the Google Analytics reports. Google Analytics sets or updates cookies only to collect data required for the reports. Additionally, Google Analytics uses only first-party cookies. This means that all cookies set by Google Analytics for your domain send data only to the servers for your domain. This effectively makes Google Analytics cookies the personal property of your website domain, and the data cannot be altered or retrieved by any service on another domain.
