Terms and Conditions

Introduction

We are a small family operated business dedicated to making sure that all your expectations of your stay at Seventy3 are fully met or exceeded.

We have provided information about everything that we offer on our website so that you can make an informed decision about staying with us. We urge you, should you have additional questions, before you make a reservation, to email us or phone (+61 413 086 432). This is to ensure that when you make a booking to stay with us you can enjoy yourself in our unique and beautiful part of the world.

These terms and conditions are designed to make it quite clear, when you do book accommodation with us, the responsibilities we both have. We provide a great level of accommodation in a wonderful environment and we want you to fully understand the nature of your commitment particularly concerning cancellations.

So … do please read the following material carefully and be sure of your travel or holiday needs prior to making your deposit.

Deposits

Accommodation can be reserved by paying a deposit or by payment in full. In either case the booking is confirmed as soon as the payment is recorded and debited to your account.

The minimum deposit is the equivalent in Australian Dollars of twenty five percent (25%) of your total accommodation costs.

This deposit is non-refundable.

Bookings for motor racing events require a 50% deposit at the time of booking with the full balance due by a date advised.  No cancellations and the total cost for motor racing events is non-refundable.

Payment

Payments may be made by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT), cash on arrival or credit cards (Visa and MasterCard only) 3% fee applies. In the case of a direct deposit please contact us for banking details and also get confirmation that what you are about to pay for IS AVAILABLE.  Making a direct deposit without enquiring about availability first is not giving us the chance to explain this to you.

**Please note that a booking cannot be confirmed until the funds are deposited to our account through electronic transfer.

Your final payment may be made at any time and in any event no later than the day of your arrival.

Payment for “extras”, breakages, or “third party” expenditure by us on your behalf during your stay is expected to be made by cash prior to departure.

Our Rates

Our standard rates are for 1 or 2 adults (using the queen bed only).  Additional rates apply for more than 2 adults and/or children.  Our rates are calculated on the bedding that is used.

Our rates for special events in Bathurst will vary accordingly, please check your requested dates with us as our standard rate does not always apply.

Please check with us for family packages as longer stays may be discounted.

You agree to advise us of any change in the number of persons using the accommodation and agree to pay any additional charges for additional persons not included in the number stated at the time of booking.

 

Cancellation

If a cancellation is received more than 30 days prior to the commencement of your stay your deposit of 25% will be retained by us.

If a cancellation is received within 30 days of your arrival, there will be no refund unless we are able to re-let the accommodation, in which case an administration fee of $40 will be retained by us.

If you cancel your accommodation less than 30 days prior to the commencement of your stay we are happy to transfer your booking to another date if available as there will be no refund.

If you cancel by default – without notice – all monies paid by you will be retained by us.

If, without prior notice, you spend less time with us than you booked, either because you arrive after the scheduled date of your stay or you leave early, the full cost of the entire stay is payable.

There is no cancellation or refund on Motor Racing events.  Seventy3 will retain 100% of the amount quoted and/or paid for the event booking.

Check-In and Check-Out

Check-in time is from 3 pm on the day of your arrival.

Similarly check-out time is before 10 am.

Rates apply if you require an earlier check in or later check out, please enquire.

Smoking

For the comfort of all our guests Seventy3 is “non-smoking”.

Swimming Pool

The swimming pool is available for use by guests.

NO OUTSIDE VISITORS are permitted entry to the residence at any time (without direct consent of management).  They are not insured for and so not permitted to use the pool.  All children are the responsibility of parents and should be supervised at all times.

Towels are provided and all wet towels and swimmers are to be hung on the clothes line, not over the furniture.  As the pool is salt water all metal items eg. bobbie pins should be kept out of the pool.

The pool is closed from 10 pm – 7 am and guests are required to keep noise levels at a low level particularly in the evening (sound travels).

There is to be NO GLASS and NO ALCOHOL taken into the pool area.

Please note that no objects except for pool items are to be taken into the water.

NO stones are to enter the pool from the garden.

Footwear

As all of our floor coverings are very new and luxurious, we would appreciate your respect in this regard.  You are most welcome to keep your shoes on providing they are clean.

Minimum Booking Periods

At weekends we usually require a minimum booking of two nights. At key holiday periods during the year a minimum booking period applies. This minimum period varies depending on the nature of the holiday period itself. For example, there is a minimum three-evening booking required at Easter and at all other long or holiday weekends.

There is a 5 night minimum stay for the October V8 car race week.

There is a 4 night minimum stay for the 12 hour Motor Race in February.

Accidental Damage and Breakage

We understand that accidental breakages (glassware, crockery etc) do happen. Damage to furnishings and fittings may well be something else and we reserve the right to charge guests with the costs of replacement, repair or otherwise bringing furnishings and fittings back to the extremely high standard we have set. Indeed it is a condition of occupancy of Seventy3 B & B, that guests both report any breakages and/or damage to furnishings and fittings on departure and that they “make good” those items that would leave the cottage at a lesser standard than when they arrived.

Children

Children are welcome at Seventy3 Boutique Accommodation.

All children under the age of 2 years will stay for free when you bring your own bedding for the child.  If they use a bed then the normal bed rate will apply.

We expect parents to ensure that their children look after the villa in a way that leaves it in as good a shape after the visit as when they arrived.

In the interests of the safety of children staying with us and their enjoyment of the facilities we provide, it is important that parents know that we regard it as their full responsibility to ensure that any child is personally and directly supervised, and that children of all ages are the direct responsibility of the parents in their use and enjoyment of the properties.

Bed Linen and other Items

The villa comes fully equipped and all that guests need to bring with them is their clothes and food supplies if needed.

There is no washing facilities in the villa however supplied in the information folder within the villa are contacts for local launderettes.

There are ironing facilities located in your accommodation.

Pets

Sorry, no pets are allowed at Seventy3 Boutique Accommodation.
