At the time of booking we do take a deposit of £50.00 per room, per night. Please note that this is a non-refundable deposit. Should you need to cancel your booking for any reason, we do ask that you contact us before 3pm the day prior to arrival. At this point, we do permit you to amend your booking to a date in the future however this may incur a rate change, and a future date must be given at the time of cancellation. Bookings can be moved to a future date once however should you need to cancel the amended booking then full pre-paid deposit will be redeemed by the hotel. Payments made to the hotel will appear as Black Swan (Yorkshire) Ltd on your bank statements.

Cancellation within 24 hours of arrival will mean that you full pre-paid deposit will be redeemed by the hotel, or the remaining balance for the total of the first night of your stay will be taken, whichever is greater.
