Terms and Conditions
|The binding contract is between the guest and the company (Portavadie Estates LTD.) and is subject to the following booking conditions:
The signature of the guest on the booking form or the on-line submission of the booking form creates a binding contract between each and every adult member of the party (jointly “the guest”) and Portavadie Estates LTD. If there is more than one guest the obligations which they undertake can be enforced against them all jointly or against each individually.
1. Your booking is only confirmed when Portavadie Estates LTD receives your signed booking form with appropriate credit card details and despatches your confirmation. Portavadie will take a 50% deposit on booking which is non-refundable. Offers at certain times of the year are subject to full prepayment and failure to meet the terms will be taken as cancellation and the booking will be released. All individual accounts must be settled on departure and any corporate credit must be sought in advance for and approved 30 days prior to arrival by our accounts team.
2. Portavadie has the right to charge to the guest’s credit or debit card any unpaid charges relating to the booking, the cost of any loss sustained, damage, laundry, telephone bills, or other expenses incurred by the guest and not paid for prior to, on or after the date of departure.
3. Cancellation or alterations
1. Any cancellation by the guest for whatever reason must be made in writing or by email to Portavadie at the address at the top of the booking form. If cancellation takes place within 30 days 75% of the total account will be payable. If cancellation occurs within 10 days full payment will be required.
2. Prior to making full payment, where it is possible to accommodate changes to the booking at the guest’s request, Portavadie reserves the right to charge an administration fee and will issue a revised confirmation.
3. Where the guest has made the full payment, Portavadie cannot consider requests for any subsequent changes to the booking. Should the guest then wish to cancel the booking condition 3.2 above will apply.
Portavadie is entitled to ask the guest to leave the premises without refunding money paid if we believe the guest’s behaviour, or the behaviour of any other occupant of the accommodation, to be unacceptable. In addition, no illegal or immoral activity can take place in any accommodation type, including boats berthed in the marina. Guests cannot interfere with the construction or arrangement of any of the accommodation or furniture or play radio, television, music system or musical instrument in such manner as to be audible outside the accommodation at any time.
5. Limitation of liabilities
Where loss, damage or injury arises from breach of contract, negligence, misrepresentation or otherwise, neither Portavadie nor its employees or agents are under any liability to the guest or the third parties for any loss or damage or injury howsoever arising. In addition, we shall be under no liability whatsoever for any loss, damage or injury sustained by you caused by any other occupant of the building.
6. Brochure information
Portavadie believes the information contained in our brochure and other printed materials handed to or to be handed to the guest to be accurate. While we take all reasonable steps to ensure the accuracy, we cannot accept responsibility for errors contained in the brochure or such other printed material.
7. Alterations or cancellation by the company
In the unlikely event (and where the guest is not in breach of the booking conditions) that it is necessary for Portavadie to cancel the booking, we will refund in full all monies paid to the credit or debit card account, but will be under no other liability whatsoever.
8. Number of people using the accommodation
The number of people using any accommodation must not exceed the maximum number (of adults and children) stated on the booking form. (All guest accommodation is strictly let to the maximum number of bedroom (s) and sleepers from 2-8 guests dependant on the property typed booked. The only exemption being Travel Cots – a maximum of 2 will be provided for infants under 3 – guests are asked to bring their own sheets and bedding for Travel Cots). If this condition is broken, Portavadie is entitled to ask the guest to leave. This will be treated as a cancellation by the guest and condition 3.2 will apply together with retention of any payment made for the time that any accommodation has been occupied by the guest.
Portavadie reserves the right to vary the accommodation booked subject to the alternative accommodation being, in our opinion, of an equivalent or higher standard than that reserved. The alternative accommodation may be in a different but similar location.
Pets are only permitted in selected property types and Portavadie reserves the right to ask guests who are in breach of our pet policy to leave.

The guest must keep any accommodation and all furniture, fittings and effects in the same in the same condition as at the start of the booking and must leave the accommodation in the same state of cleanliness and general order in which it was found.
