Closure Notice – House of Daniel Thwaites
From 11am on Saturday 21st March, we’re having to close our doors while the country faces the challenge of the coronavirus.
We’re very sad about this but you can still plan your visit as we’re taking bookings for dates from 20th April. And for your peace of mind we are offering a no quibble refund for bookings up to 20th June if any dates change as a result of further guidance.
What do I do if I have a booking?
For anyone who has made a booking with us, we’re sorry you will need to postpone your visit because we were looking forward to seeing you.
We’re not sure when the Government will allow us all to reopen, so rest assured we’re totally flexible about giving a refund or arranging a new date.
Also, if you have anything booked in with us over the next 30 days, the team will be in touch to discuss your reservation.
Can I upgrade my room?
Yes we have Character Rooms and Feature Rooms which you can upgrade to starting at £25.00 per night. Each room comes with its own charm and character – be it a beautiful view of the town or an original feature delicately preserved. If you want to upgrade your room, please get in contact to check availability.
Do you hold rooms provisionally?
No we take a credit card to guarantee reservations and our cancellation policy then applies.
When is check in/out?
From 2pm and ideally before 11pm – but do let us know if you’ll be later than this and we’ll make sure the doors are still open. If you would like to check in earlier than 2pm please request this in advance and we will do our best to accommodate an arrival at 11am for additional charge of £15.
Check out is by 11am please – a later check out may be available on request at a charge of £15 and to 2pm.
Do you have a room with a bath?
All of our rooms are different – but all have fabulous bathrooms. If you specifically want a walk in shower or a bath the best thing to do is book direct with us and we’ll be able to advise you firsthand about the facilities in the room.
