Terms & Conditions

Reservation Terms and Conditions – updated 24 January 2021

By making a reservation at Riverside Haven Lodge and Holiday Park, you agree to abide by these Terms and Conditions.

1. Reservations

Reservations are a contract between Riverside Haven Lodge and Holiday Park (‘us’, ‘we’, ‘our’, ‘management’) and the person, aged 18 years and over, named on the Reservation (‘you’, ‘your’, ‘the reservation holder’).

Reservations are not transferable to any other persons. This means that the person named on the reservation must occupy the site/room for the duration of the contract, and is ultimately responsible/liable for occupants and visitors of that site/accommodation. Riverside Haven Lodge and Holiday Park reserves the right to cancel any booking (without refund) whereby the person named on the reservation is no longer occupying the site/accommodation.

2. Check-In and Check-Out

The reservation holder must register and pay any balance due on arrival or on account before we will allow any access to sites/rooms. If you do not check in with us when you arrive, your booking may be deemed a ‘non-arrival’ and cancelled without refund, allowing your site/accommodation to be re-let.

Check-in time is from 2pm for camping and all accommodation and check-out time is before 10am for all accommodation and camping unless discussed with management.

Please do not ask for early check-in or late check-out during Peak Season.
