We recognise that, on occasions, guests will book accommodation and subsequently find that they are unable to travel. In these situations we ask that guests please notify us of their need to cancel as soon as possible. We would respectfully remind you that a reservation constitutes a binding contract. The deposit is a payment made to us to keep a room available for you (turning away all other bookings) for the nights requested, and is not refundable if you cancel for any reason. Should you cancel within fourteen days prior to arrival, we will make every effort to re-let your room (which may not be possible due to available ferry space at that time). If we are unsuccessful in doing so, you will be liable for the full cost of the reserved stay. You are therefore strongly recommended to take out appropriate insurance for your protection.
If contacting Kilmeny, it will help us to help you if you provide the following information:
The dates on which you may wish to stay.
The number of persons in your party.
The type of accommodation you would prefer.
Any other relevant information regarding your proposed visit.
