All reservations require a credit card which may be validated or pre-authorised for the full amount of the reservation and any reasonably foreseeable additional costs and expenses.
Pre-authorisation is a temporary hold on funds on your credit card for your reservation.

If your booking is non-refundable your credit card will be charged after your reservation is confirmed.

Full payment for accommodation is required upon arrival with any additional payment required prior to departure unless otherwise agreed with management.

We may cancel your reservation at any time with immediate effect by giving you written notice in the event of a material breach of these Terms and Conditions.

We may also cancel your reservation if an event outside our control means we are unable to make your room or rooms available in accordance with your reservation.

The safety and well-being of our guests is important to the Antique Lodge Motel.  In circumstances where the cancellation is due to a Covid-enforced government travel restriction we will work closely allowing for flexibility while being reasonable with alternative dates and arrangements.  In ALL other circumstances the standard cancellation policy will stand and we strongly recommend that guests have domestic travel insurance.

All units have a full kitchen available for use.

Cooking foods that are highly odorous or aromatic that infuse into the surfaces and furnishings can require additional cleaning (we find the most problematic foods are seafoods, some spices or food that has been burnt).
