DAMAGE / BEHAVIOUR
An awkward topic but... any damage in the accommodation caused by misuse (such as smoking or preparation of foods) or carelessness, will be charged to the credit or debit card provided along with any lost rental night/s associated with this. The material cost involved will be decided by a quote from the appropriate repair service or by mutual agreement to return the accommodation to its original standard. Damage to a accommodation can have costs ranging from inconveniencing pre-booked guests through to not being able to relet the accommodation for an undetermined time. For the comfort of others, boisterous and rowdy behaviour will not be tolerated and if necessary, disruptive guests will be asked to leave. We reserve the right to terminate the visit of any guest whose conduct is detrimental to the comfort of others.
We do not accept any liability for any damage, loss or injury to you or any member of your party or any vehicles or possessions.
We are unable to accommodate pets in our guest rooms except assistance dogs.
Atholl House is an old building with steps to the entrance. Most of our bedrooms are upstairs on the 1st floor with limited ground floor availability. The building does not have a lift. If you require a ground floor room please call us to request this subject to availability but please be aware that there are steps to reach the front door.
All bookings made with us are a minimum 2-night stay unless our booking system shows otherwise. Any bookings made with the intention of staying fewer nights than booked and cancelling remaining dates upon arrival will still incur the full amount for the booked period. Please do not book any rooms if this is your intention. There are no facilities to add additional beds or cots to the rooms. If you arrive with more people than the 1 or 2 booked into the room you will not be admitted and you will be charged for the full booked period.
In accordance with Scottish law smoking is not permitted anywhere on the premises. Guests found to be infringing this policy will be asked to leave. Should a room need cleaning due to smoking, a further charge equivalent to one nights accommodation tariff will be applicable.
Guest parking is available and guests' vehicles are parked entirely at their own risk.
