Your Deposit
Unless a booking is made at last minute, you will be asked to pay a non refundable deposit by cheque or debit/credit card. This payment will be deducted from your final bill when paid on arrival. Please request a receipt for your deposit at time of booking, if required. If your booking is last minute, you will be asked to pay in full by debit/visa card.

Payment of Bill
You will be asked to pay your bill on arrival. Please check your room first to ensure that it suits your requirements. Thank you.

When you make a reservation either by telephone, e-mail or in writing, you enter into a legal contract with the proprietor. If you subsequently cancel your reservation the proprietor may ask you for compensation. This will probably involve the loss of your deposit and perhaps an additional payment. Last minute bookings (made within 48 hrs) have up to 2 pm on the day of stay to cancel the room without incurring possible additional charges. All other bookings secured with deposits have up to 2 days in advance to cancel without incurring possible additional charges. This does involve the loss of the deposit. If 14 days’ notice is given it will be possible to use your deposit against a future stay.
If no notice is given, payment is required in full. There may be an additional charge. Cancellations made after 2pm on the day of stay will be charged in full.

However, if the proprietor manages to re-let the room(s) he will not ask for compensation from you. It is therefore advisable to confirm your cancellation in writing as early as possible. Before booking, consider taking out insurance against your cancellation of the trip.


Payment by cash or debit card please. Mastercard or visa cards incur a minimum £2 fee per transaction.
The proprietors cannot accept responsibility for the loss of guests’ property nor accident or injury, howsoever caused.
The proprietors reserve the right to curtail or terminate any contract should the conduct of any person who is party to that contract, cause any detriment to the well being of other guests.

The Mendip Gate is a NON-SMOKING establishment. It is against the law to smoke in our home. An immediate fine of £50 is a payable and additional cleaning costs will be incurred. Loss caused by malicious damage (this includes bed wetting) will be charged to the authorised credit/debit card. These charges will include loss of revenue should the room not be suitable to let.
