When booking with us, you agree to adhere to the terms of our damage deposit policy.
A damage deposit of £100 will typically be charged and securely held upon booking a room. This deposit serves to cover any expenses related to excessive cleaning, damages, missing items during your stay, or any loss of income incurred if we must temporarily close a room for repairs, maintenance, or cleaning due to your stay.
Please note that additional charges may apply if the costs for excessive cleaning, damages, or missing items exceed the deposit amount. We aim to provide photographic evidence, estimates, and invoices for any work undertaken as needed.
While charges are seldom necessary, it's important to maintain a standard of cleanliness and care expected of all guests. Guests are responsible for any expenses associated with repairing, replacing, or cleaning beyond standard requirements, including costs resulting from smoking in designated non-smoking properties, which may involve cleaning curtains, carpets, upholstery, and loss of income due to room closure for airing and additional cleaning.
Smoking inside the hotel is strictly prohibited to avoid additional charges.
Upon checkout, the room will be inspected, and any charges for damages, missing items, or excessive cleaning will be communicated to the guest. Please report any breakages promptly to allow for replacement items to be sourced before checkout. If the room becomes un sellable due to unreported missing items, additional charges may apply for the period it remains unavailable. We also reserve the right to impose additional charges if relocation of the next guest is necessary due to property conditions, including damages, excessive cleaning, smoking, or missing items.
We aim to refund all deposits (where applicable) within 5 working days of checkout. The method of refund depends on the original payment method. Deposits paid via BACs (online banking) from a UK bank account will be refunded via BACs to the same UK bank account. Deposits paid by debit or credit card will be refunded to the original card. Refunds to cards other than the one used for the original payment are not feasible.
In the event of damage deposit deductions, we will inform you of the charges and refund or invoice any difference accordingly. Evidence of damages, such as photographs or reports from our staff, will be provided upon request.
Registered Assistance dogs are welcome at the Blackpool Resort Hotel.
Where there are bedrooms above the ground floor, the fire evacuation procedure may involve wheelchair users being directed to a safe refuge in the first instance.
Unfortunately, we cannot offer personal care. Where personal care is required, we recommended that guests contact their own local social services who may be able to advise them of approved care services local to the hotel.
Should you require assistance during your stay please contact Reception and our Team Members will be happy to do all that they can to assist.
Enjoy your stay with us at the Blackpool Resort Hotel – please remember we are here to help.
