- Room rates
The Pinegrove Hotel operates a dynamic pricing model. This means that the price of our rooms will fluctuate based on demand. The price you pay is the price quoted to you at the time you make your reservation plus any extras that you may wish to add on.
Room prices are per room, per night and are inclusive of VAT at the applicable rate at the time of your reservation. If the rate of VAT changes between the date of your reservation and the date of your stay, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the reservation in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
We offer a range of rates for guests, including but not limited to a bed and breakfast rate, a room only, and non-refundable rates for each of our room types. We may also offer special discount rates at various times throughout the year.
Please note that breakfast can be added to your booking on arrival at a cost of £7 per person and pets are subject to a charge of £10 per stay.
The maximum room occupancy is relative to the number of beds available in the room. Single rooms have an occupancy of one, twins and doubles have an occupancy of two. Family rooms can accommodate up to two adults and two children (under the age of 16). You must not exceed the maximum occupancy for the room allocated to you.
Children under 16 are not permitted to stay at the Pinegrove unless a parent or guardian is also staying. We reserve the right to request valid photographic proof of identity and age, so please bring this with you otherwise you may not be permitted to stay.
- Paying for your room
We typically charge guests for their stay on the morning of their arrival date unless they have specified otherwise at the time of booking, ie if they are paying in cash or using a business card.
Payment may be made by cash (with proof of identification) and credit/debit card (Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, JCB, American Express and Union Pay). The expiry date of your debit/credit card must be later than the end of your stay. We do not accept personal cheques or family discount cards.
- Large bookings
A reservation with a total price over £1000 is considered a large booking. If a guest wishes to make large booking, please call our reception team on 01228 524 828.
Please note that bookings of over £1000 that include multiple rooms will be charged a 50 per cent non-refundable deposit at the time of booking.
The Pinegrove Hotel operates a 48 hour cancellation policy. This means that a guest can cancel or change their booking free of charge up until two days before arrival. The guest will be charged the cost of the first two nights if they cancel within two days before arrival.
If a guest has booked a room for more multiple nights and wants to cancel a particular night, the same policy applies and they can cancel free of charge until two days before the night they wish to cancel.
- Changes or cancellation by the hotel
On rare occasions we may need to cancel a guests’ booking. In such circumstances, guests will be given a full refund, but we shall have no further liability to you arising out of such cancellation. We will, however, use reasonable endeavours to try and re-locate any cancelled booking by us to an alternative location of similar standard.
Your booking is for a class of room in the hotel and does not guarantee that you will be able to stay in a specific room or in the same room for the duration of your stay. If we need to move you to a different room during your booking for which a lower rate is available than the rate you booked at, we will refund you the difference in the rates.

Depending on the severity of the guests’ actions, the guests may be asked to leave the hotel or the police may become involved.
Guests are requested to conduct themselves appropriately at all times and to comply with hotel policies and requests. Guests are requested not to disrupt the comfort and enjoyment of other guests, the smooth running of the hotel, or cause offence to other guests or our members of staff.
