In the event of a cancellation up to seven (7) days prior to the scheduled date of arrival no charge will be made. If you do not cancel your reservation seven (7) days of the scheduled date of arrival a cancellation charge of the remaining balance will be charged.

If Guest does not cancel 24 hours before a cancellation charge equivalent to the room(s) single night rate will be made.

We take all bookings in good faith, as we are unable to judge reasons for change, cancellation or non-arrival, guests are reminded that no exceptions to the above conditions will be made and that any booking made with The William Peter’s Mansion Bed and Breakfast for either accommodation or goods, services, meals or drinks that are pre- booked (verbal or written) forms a legally binding contract.
