Terms & conditions



The offer of any room is subject to the room being available on receipt of deposit.


The deposit required to secure a booking is one night of your stay.


Account balances must be paid by credit, debit, switch cards or cash.

Please note on arrival a pre authorization will be taken for the full amount of your stay plus an additional £50.00 per night to cover any additional spenditure during your stay. A pre authorization secures funds for full payment to be taken on departure. Should you not wish to provide a preauthorization full payment will be requested on arrival. All outstanding balances not paid on departure will be automatically charged to your credit card. No personal or company cheques are accepted. In certain circumstances payment may be required in full at time of making the booking. You will be made aware of this before you book and any payment is taken.


Please note that the Fistral Beach Hotel and Spa is adults only. No children under the age of 18 are able to stay in the hotel or use the facilities.


At busiest times, our car parking is limited, however free on road parking is available directly in front of the hotel. A number of parking spaces can be reserved with Reception at a cost of £15 per day. To make sure our car park stays exclusively for the use of hotel residents and members we have a smart park system in place, on arrival at the hotel please register your vehicle registration otherwise automatic fines will be issued. Although every reasonable care is taken the Hotel cannot take any responsibility regarding guests’ cars. We have EV charging in the car park for our EV drivers. This is charged at 55p per KwH. There is a £5 per hour idle fee if your vehicle is left plugged in once fully charged.


Please note, we do not allow pets in the hotel.

The Equality Act 2010 requires that disabled people have the same rights to services such as accommodation, restaurants, and bars. Also we recognise that reasonable adjustments will be made in order to avoid discrimination against disabled people.

These reasonable adjustments will include and range from creating wheelchair access routes to modifying a “no dogs policy” so that a disabled person may be accompanied by their service or assistance dog.

We also understand that not all service or assistance dogs will carry charity registration papers by Assistance Dogs Uk (ADUK) as they may be self-trained.

In order to protect our guests and staff from dogs that are not trained to the required standards under the law, we will expect that the assistance dog will, as stated by The Equality and Human Rights Commission:

  • Be highly trained.
  • Will not wander freely around the premises.
  • Will sit or lie quietly on the floor next to its owner.
  • Are trained to go to the toilet on command and so are unlikely to foul in a public place.
  • Be recognisable by the harness or identifying dog jacket, although not in all cases.

We recognise that all disabilities are not visible. While we recognise the positive impact an emotional support animal (ESA) has on its owner, however we also have a duty of care to our guests and staff.

As ESAs are not always trained to the required safety standards of an assistance/ service dog, we are afraid we do not allow them on the premises.


We will accept deliveries of parcels on behalf of our guests if given prior notice however we will not be held liable for the safety of the parcel.

8. V.A.T.

VAT is included in all prices.


Guests are requested to bring their own towels for the beach. Towels are provided for in-room use. They are also provided in Fistral Spa for use in our leisure facilities.


Sample menus are available on request. Meal times are subject to occasional variation and during out busiest times there may be a wait for a table.


A discretionary 10% service charge is applied to bills in The Dune Restaurant and Bay Bar. No other service charges are applied as we believe this should always be at the guest’s discretion. Please note that the Hotel does not retain any service charges, all monies are paid directly to the staff.


No allowances can be made for rooms not being occupied for the full period of the booking or for meals or any other supplements not taken.


The proprietor cannot be held responsible for cash or valuables unless they are deposited in the Hotel Reception and a receipt obtained.


The Hotel is up to date with its fire precautions and has been granted a fire certificate.


Bookings commence at 3:00pm on day of arrival and rooms need to be vacated by 11:00am on departure day. Guests are welcome to use the hotel facilities all day on both arrival and departure day. Priority check-in and late check-out may be arranged at an extra charge.
