Tay Bunkhouse Terms and Conditions

This is a contract between Tay Bunkhouse (owner) and you (group leader/booker).

Each group (over 6 people) must have a nominated group leader. They are responsible for the booking. The nominated leader warrants that they have the full authority to make a booking on behalf of all the persons they are making a booking for and confirms that all such persons are aware of and accept our terms and conditions.

The price for the accommodation will be set at the time of booking and will form part of your confirmation of booking notification. This notification supersedes any prior promises, representations or undertakings. Any omission or error in any web page, quotation, email, invoice or other document issued by us may be corrected by us without liability. We will advise you of any changes at the time of booking or as soon as possible thereafter.

Tay Bunkhouse reserves the right to decline a booking at our discretion. Any representative of Tay Bunkhouse retains the right to enter all parts of the building at any time, to ensure that cleanliness is preserved, and routine maintenance may be carried out.

The use of the accommodation and facilities are entirely at your own risk and no responsibility will be accepted for injury, loss or damages to the user, their belongings or their motor vehicles. You must make a full risk assessment of your use of any equipment in the house including infant and child equipment and you use all equipment at your own risk. The rental of the property does not include or guarantee the availability of additional sporting activities which are available to be booked separately with the owner.

The Rental
The Rental confers upon the group leader the right to occupy the property for a holiday as mentioned in the Housing Act 1988 Schedule 1 Paragraph 9 and any equivalent or similar provision under the laws of Scotland. The group leader acknowledges that the rental granted by this Agreement is not an assured tenancy, and that no statutory periodic tenancy or protected tenancy or equivalent or similar tenancies under the laws of Scotland will arise. This rental is on a self-catering basis and the group leader is expected to leave the rental in the same state in which they found it, recycling bins with additional bin bags are provided and all the necessary cleaning equipment for washing up etc is provided also.

Please ensure all guests take outdoor shoes off at the front door.

Bookings will be confirmed on receiving a deposit of 50% of the total booking fee (see cancelations). This will initiate the contract of booking. The outstanding balance is payable in full 4 weeks before the date of your stay. If the booking is made within the 4-week period, the full payment will be required to secure your booking.

No responsibility will be taken by Tay Bunkhouse for delays in payment. If any payment under these terms and conditions is overdue, then without prejudice to our other rights, we may cancel your booking.
