If, on inspection, after Guests leave, their accommodation is found to be in the same condition as it was on their arrival, the Damage Deposit will be returned in full.
Guests’ deposits will be returned from 5 – 7 days after departure, following clearing, cleaning and processing of their accommodation by us.
