1. Your booking

1.1 We reserve the right to accept or decline bookings entirely at our discretion.
1.2 Your contract with us will begin when we issue you with your booking confirmation and will be based on the terms and conditions set out in this document.
1.3 The lead booker (person making the booking) must be 18 or over and confirm their agreement to these terms and conditions by ticking the box during the booking process.
1.4 The lead booker is responsible for ensuring all members of their party are aware of and abide by these terms and conditions.
1.5 In the event of any breach of these terms and conditions we reserve the right to cancel any booking, refuse entry or require the guests to leave prior to the end of their stay. No refunds will be due and the security deposit will be forfeit in these circumstances.

(back to the menu)

2. Paying for your booking

2.1 The total cost of the holiday is calculated as the sum of the nightly rates plus a one-off £75 per stay cleaning fee and any extra charges (e.g. dog fees, if chosen).
2.2 To secure a booking a non-refundable booking fee of £50 + 5% of the total cost is payable to reserve the property for the dates chosen and cover administrative costs.
2.3 30 days in advance of arrival the balance is payable (total cost minus booking fee).
2.4 Before arrival we will send you an email with a link to authorise payment of a refundable security deposit of £200. Following your departure, the property will be inspected and if any damage/replacement/excess cleaning/nuisance penalties are incurred, they will be deducted from the card details used to authorise the security deposit. If no payment/penalties are due the security deposit will be released. Please be aware it might take up to three weeks to process the release of the security deposit. Please note that you remain liable for the full costs of any damage/replacement/excess cleaning needed which may exceed £200 (we won’t charge for the odd broken plate or glass if you let us know as soon as this happens).
2.5 Payments for online bookings may be made by Visa or Mastercard credit or debit card. If you would prefer not to book online, please get in touch and we may be able to take your booking over the phone with payment by bank transfer.
2.6 You must provide a valid email address during booking and monitor it (including your spam folder) to receive the links to pay your balance 30 days before arrival and your security deposit shortly before arrival. If you do not receive a confirmation, balance payment and security deposit authorisation email please check your spam/junk folders, add info@theparisi.com to your safe list or get in touch to let us know. Please get in touch if you need to update your email address at any time before your stay.
2.7 Non-payment of any amount by the due date will be construed as cancellation of the booking and no refunds will be due.

(back to the menu)

3. Cancellation and changes to bookings

3.1 Your contract with us is a contract for the provision of leisure accommodation on a specific date or dates and this means that you do not have a statutory right to change your mind and cancel the contract. We do, however, offer you the right to cancel your contract subject to the provisions outlined below. Any cancellations must be made in writing by letter or email to us at The Parisi Hotel, 51 St Denys Road, York, YO1 9QD or info@theparisi.com. The booking will be treated as cancelled from the day we receive the email or letter.
3.2 For cancellation received up to 30 days before arrival, only the booking fee will be retained by us and any other pre-payments will be refunded.
3.3 For cancellation within 30 days, on top of the booking fee, the accommodation balance is retained by us. The cleaning fee, and dog fee/s if applicable, will be refunded. If possible, we will try to resell the accommodation and, if successful, will refund anything received above the booking fee minus any extra costs of the reselling (for example, lower resale price and/or extra advertising commission of up to 20%).
3.4 If you have to cut your holiday short for any reason after the start date of your booking no refund will be due for any remaining nights.

3.5 It may be possible to extend your holiday after booking, subject to availability and payment for the extra dates - please contact us by email at info@theparisi.com.
3.6 It may be possible to reduce the length of the stay up to 30 days before arrival (if no minimum stay requirements are in place at the time of change). If this is possible, no portion of the booking fee for the date/s no longer required will be refunded, but the portion of the balance relating to the cancelled dates will no longer be payable.
3.7 If reducing the length of stay within 30 days of arrival, normal cancellation rules apply and we will try to resell the dates no longer required and if successful, will refund anything received above the original booking fee for those dates, minus any extra costs of the rebooking (for example, lower resale price and/or extra advertising commission of up to 20%).
3.8 It is possible to change the dates of your stay up to 9 months in advance of the original arrival date without incurring cancellation fees, subject to availability and payment of any extr
a costs associated with the new dates.
3.9 Cancellation by owners - In the unlikely event that we need to cancel your booking before you arrive, for example due to fire, flood, legislation, equipment breakdown that renders the property unusable etc (non-exhaustive list), we will refund you the full amount paid, or if after arrival, a part amount based on the time remaining of the booking. This will be the full extent of our liability and no additional compensation, expenses or costs will be payable.
3.10
Please be aware that at the time of booking, there is a small but unavoidable risk of double booking due to inherent delays in the technology used to facilitate online booking and payment and in these circumstances we will contact you as soon as possible if your booking needs to be cancelled and refunded.

4. Travel Insurance

4.1 It is a condition of your booking that you obtain appropriate travel insurance for all members of your group covering illness, injury, damage to property and cancellation from the point of booking.
4.2 With regret, we will not be able to waive our cancellation policies should you be unable to travel due to any reason including but not limited to weather, illness, bereavement, changing regulations, transport problems etc.

(back to the menu)

5. Arrival, departure and keys

5.1 In the days before arrival you will receive an email requesting payment of the security deposit. Once you have done this you will be given the code to the key safe box. Please be aware that there can be a 1-2 hour delay between paying your security deposit and receiving the key safe box code.
5.2 You are welcome to arrive at any time from 4pm on the day of arrival and collect the keys from the secure key safe box.
5.3 Please make sure you have departed and left the car parking area by 10am to allow us time to complete our thorough cleaning procedures.
5.4 When you leave, please leave the main set of k
eys in the key safe box. There will be a £30.00 fee per key should a guest lose, damage or fail to leave keys behind on departure.

(back to the menu)

6. Car parking

6.1 There is off-road space for up to three cars (depending on their size) to the side of the property for use throughout your stay from 4pm on the day of arrival until 10am on the day of departure.
6.2 Please be aware, the parking space is compact and has a sloped entrance. Depending on the size and turning circle of your cars, it is possible for two cars to park side by side and come and go independently. The third car would need to block in the first and second car. For example, we have successfully parked one Golf hatchback and two medium wheelbase vans in the space (with some manoeuvring!).
6.3 There is no facility for charging electric cars and please don’t charge them from inside the house.
6.4 Unfortunately, the car parking area is needed for cleaning and maintenance access between guests so you will need to find alternative parking if you plan to arrive in York before 4pm on your arrival day or stay later than 10am on your departure day. There are lots of nearby car parking options, including pre-bookable spaces at Piccadilly Residence carpark (YO1 9PQ) at the foot of our street which are managed by JustPark.

8.4
Please note that although the staying guests are of course very welcome to have civilised celebrations as part of their holiday, the house is surrounded by residential accommodation (including the owners next door!) and is therefore not suitable for guests who wish to hold parties, loud celebrations, or stag/hen do groups.
8.5 You must not cause any nuisance or annoyance to any neighbours or anyone else during your stay. There must be no noise audible outside the house from between 10pm and 8am. Please take extra care in the garden and make sure to return quietly if you are out late at night.

11.1 The car parking area slopes towards the pavement.
11.2 At the main entrance, there is a low step off the pavement and then three steps to access the building with handrails to either side.

12.4 While we are in a relatively quiet area of the city centre, it is a vibrant neighbourhood and there is a through road outside where traffic including buses pass by and the majority of our windows are the original single-paned Victorian glass, so we cannot guarantee it will be quiet – please ask if you are concerned about noise and we will be happy to advise.

(back to the menu)

Any items missing at the end of your stay will be charged at cost plus a £50 admin fee per item and may be treated as theft.
13.4 Please make sure windows and doors are secured when you go out, at night and when you leave on your last day. Damage or theft resulting from windows or doors left open or unsecured is the responsibility of the lead booker.
13.5 You are legally responsible for reimbursing us for any replacement, repair or extra cleaning necessary as a result of actions by your party or pets. We do understand accidents happen and so won’t charge for the odd plate or glass, but we ask that any breakages or damage are reported immediately to info@theparisi.com.
