A single room rate entitles the room to be occupied by one person for the duration of stay.  For double occupancy, please refer to room rates.

The hotel cannot guarantee your room will be available before the check in time of 14:00 hours GMT if you arrive early, however, every effort will be made to give priority to overseas visitors where advance notice has been given to the BELMAS Office. If you wish to arrange a late check out after 10:00 hours GMT, this can be organised upon arrival where the hotel will be able to advise of availability and any additional charges for this service.

Please note that you are responsible for settling all extras incurred on site directly with the hotel on departure.
