Your agreement to abide by them is assumed upon booking accommodation at Brambles B&B Kent and forms a legally binding contract. Reservations are personal and can in no case be transferred to a third party, whether free, at a cost, or for commercial purposes.

Brambles operates on a strict no-smoking policy throughout the house. Sorry we do not allow pets at this property, with the exception of assistance guide dogs. The number of occupants per room cannot exceed the number of persons booked, we reserve the right to terminate the booking without notice should extra persons present upon arrival.

Check-in & Departure requirements

In the interests of security guests will be required to fill in a registration form on arrival. If guests are travelling from outside the UK, Ireland or any country in the Commonwealth we are also obliged by law to require guests to provide the number and place of issue of your passport/identity card and details of their next destination. These records will be kept for at least 12 months and may be disclosed or made available for inspection by any police officer or as otherwise required by applicable law in connection with the prevention or investigation of crime. We reserve the right to refuse entry to persons who cannot provide the information set out above.

Check in is between 4pm (16.00) and 9pm (21.00) on the day of arrival. If you need to arrive outside of these times, please contact us and agree this prior to your stay. Please vacate your room by 10.30am on the morning of departure.

Cancellation & Deposit

A deposit of £50 per room booked, is required to guarantee a reservation. Please note we’re a small business and rely mostly on forward bookings, so cancellations can have a significant impact on us. If a cancellation occurs within 7 days of arrival the deposit will not be refunded.

Damage and breakages

Please take care of our home. You are responsible and liable for any breakages or damages which you cause to the accommodation or its contents. Please report these as soon as they occur especially if you accidentally spill something – it’s much easier to clean if we know what it is and act quickly. We do not normally charge for breakages, but we reserve the right to charge for repair or making good if the damage is significant.There is a charge of £10 for lost keys to cover the cost of replacing the locks. 

Liability

We do not accept any liability for any damage, loss or injury to any member of your party or any vehicles or possessions, unless proven to be caused by a negligent act by ourselves.

Non availability

We would only ever cancel your booking if your accommodation was unavailable for reasons beyond our control. We would always attempt to offer you alternative accommodation, however if this was not possible, or unacceptable to you, then we would refund ALL monies paid by you. Our liability would not extend beyond this refund.

No hot takeaway food

In consideration of all our guests we would ask that hot takeaway food is not brought in to eat on the premises  – thank you.

We are pleased to offer an evening platter for consumption in our dining room, see our menu for details.

Missing items

We reserve the right to charge for missing items.

Termination Policy

Guests are requested to conduct themselves appropriately at all times.  Guests are requested not to disrupt the comfort and enjoyment of other guests or cause offence to other guests.  We reserve the right to refuse accommodation or services or remove you and members of your party from Brambles B&B if, in our reasonable opinion, we consider this provision to have been breached. Where this is the case shall have no obligation to refund you for lost accommodation, other services or any other loss or expense incurred.
