BLOCK BOOKINGS

¨     A block booking can be made as soon as the member is financial.  Once the member has paid their subscription they are able to make a block booking (including guests) for the forthcoming winter. Note: Block Bookings can only be made if no other beds (not even one bed), is booked at that time.

¨     If a member then books beds (for members only), over the top of a block booking, within the members priority booking period, the smaller booking of all members gets priority over the block booking.

¨     The discounted block booking bed rate will then be offered to the larger (block booked) party, less the beds occupied by the smaller (all member) party

GENERAL RULES

¨     The category headed “MEMBER’S IMMEDIATE FAMILY” pertains to those people who are directly related to the member; that is spouse/partner and children of the member.  Anyone who is not classified as the members immediate family, are deemed guests.

¨     If a lodge is full, and a member or guest wishes to have a room to themselves, and does not wantto share, they must pay for the unoccupied bed. 

¨     During the ski season any member wishing to book a single bed must pay a room rate NOT a bed rate. That is the member must pay for their bed and a members rate for the second bed. They can also only stay a maximum of one week. This may be overruled at the committee’s discretion.

¨     Where members/guests

a)    request specific rooms, the booking officer is under no obligation to grant every request, as this is impractical,   however she will assist wherever possible.

b)    extend their stay whilst they are in the lodge, they must contact the booking officer to confirm that the bed is available and make payment by credit card. If this is not done the stay cannot be extended.

c)    leave the lodge “early” i.e. prior to the last day they have booked and paid, no refunds will be made.

d)    invite friends to stay in the lodge, the booking officer must be called to check  the availability of the bed, and payment  for the bed must be made on the spot.

e)    wish to change rooms and the lodge is not full, a call must be placed to the booking clerk first.

      

 It is of the utmost importance that members and guests sleep in their assigned beds!!
