Temporary Refund Policy

 

To encourage people to stay home if sick we are offering 100% refunds this winter season. 

 

Please note: if you cancel a Friday night stay then your Saturday night stay will be cancelled too (similarly for other stays of more than 1 night - the remaining dates will need to be cancelled). Refund requests must be received before 9pm on the day(s) of cancellation.

 

Refunds take up to 60 days process.

This refund policy may be rescinded at any time.

 

 

CV-19 Level 1 Precautions

 

We'll be asking everyone to do some extra cleaning before leaving the lodge. This will include an extra cleaning of bunk rooms.

 

We'll try to place groups into individual rooms, but we cannot guarantee this. As usual, if you are not comfortable sharing a room with another group, the lodge may not be the place for you.

 

We recommend bringing your own bed sheet, in addition to pillow case.

 

If anyone in your party is obviously sick, please advise the Lodge Leader, and please leave the lodge. You will get a full refund for the remainder of your stay.

 

Please ensure you use the QR code at the entrance to the lodge for contact tracing.

 

If the lodge is forced to close due to Government restrictions, you will receive a full refund.
