Dog Policy
Small dogs only, generally under 2 stone are permitted to stay in management selected rooms only at the additional cost of £15.00 per dog per stay.  Dog must be fully trained and appropriately restrained by guest.  Guests must show evidence of up to date vaccinations at time of checking in.  Dog must be kept on a lead when inside the property’s buildings or grounds, unless it is within the guest’s room.  Dogs are not allowed inside any food service areas.  This exclusion does not apply to guide dogs.  Guests are responsible for cleaning up after their dog on hotel property and in the surrounding neighbourhood.  Any disturbances, such as barking, must be curtailed to ensure other guests are not inconvenienced.  Guests must arrange a convenient time for room servicing with reception/housekeeping.  Guests are responsible for all property damages and/or personal injuries resulting from their dog.  Guests agree to indemnify and hold harmless the hotel, its owners and its operator from all liability and damage suffered as a result of the guest’s dog.  The hotel reserves the right to charge guest’s account commensurate to the costs of such damage.

Corporate & Group Events                                                                                                                                                                                          We are happy to hold two provisional dates at any one time.  On confirmation of your booking, a 50% deposit is  required or full payment if the booking is made within a month of the booking date.  The outstanding balance must be paid 30 days before the event.  Drinks and wine not included in the package price will be invoiced after the event and our payment terms are 30 days from invoice.   All individual guest extras are to be settled on the day of departure.  Should you need to cancel the event, we are happy to switch to another date, subject to availability.  If this is not possible, we will refund the deposit up to one month prior to the event.  After that date we will retain 50% of the full fee.  The same policy applies to accommodation booked within the event.  Final cookery course and dining numbers, plus any special dietary requirements, must be confirmed five full working days before the event, to allow for purchasing of fresh produce.  Changes or cancellations after this cannot be refunded and full payment will be charged.  Eckington Manor Cookery School reserves the right, under unavoidable circumstances to cancel an event at any time.

We reserve the right to charge guests the cost of rectifying damage, caused by the deliberate, negligent or reckless act, omission, default or neglect of the Clients, their guests or sub-contractors to the  property or structure of Eckington Manor. Should this damage come to light after the guest has departed, we reserve the right to make a charge to guest’s credit/debit card or send an invoice for the amount required to make good or remedy any such damage, to the registered address. We will, however, make every effort to keep any costs that the guest would incur to a minimum.
