Book now to get Last Minute Rates - save 10% (or more) of the listed price when booking in the 7 days before your arrival - valid on most of our room types. We appreciate your direct booking and will try to find you the best room to suit your party. Often we have unique options available that aren't listed on the third party sites. We can also give you information on getting here, what to do and where to eat that only locals can provide. If you are booking via our website, simply click in the show rates section of the room you want on the date you want, if a room is available for your date then the last minute rate option will show up for you.

Did you know that most third party websites charge the hotel 15% (or more) commission on each booking?  

Did you know that most hotels have little option but to be listed on these sorts of sites due to the way Google displays the results of your web search, often listing these sites far above the hotel's own site. (you pay more to be listed higher in a search).

Did you know that most of the guests we meet who book through those sites think that they are actually on the hotel's own site?

Did you know that many of these sites undercut the hotel's own website by giving you back 10% of the commission as a 'members only price', meaning that the hotel's own website cant legally compete with the third party website (see below).

Did you know that once a hotel signs up with these websites they are obligated by contract to provide the same rate to these high commission sites as on their own website, even though the above undercutting occurs, which often (not always) leads to inflated prices which ultimately get passed onto you?

Did you know that third party websites often dont give you the full picture of what is available at a hotel, or description of the room you are booking or of the property due to their format constraints? A property's own website (or person on the phone) will give you much more useful information to help you make a decision.

Do you want to save money on your booking without making us cry, as well as get a great room that well suits your needs?

** Third party or OTA websites are those popular ones you see advertised on TV, they promote themselves as giving you the best rates (often better than the hotel can give you)
