Book By Telephone
Alternatively, if you would like to make a reservation by telephone, please call us on 01680 812333. If we are not available, please leave a message and we shall call you back.
Prices are per room, per night and inclusive of full Scottish breakfast and all taxes. Payment is taken on departure for any drinks, extras or services taken during your stay. We accept the following forms of payment – cash, debit cards and MasterCard and Visa credit cards.
Deposit & Balance Payments
In order to secure a booking a deposit is payable - equivalent to 1 night's accommodation - a credit or debit card payment secures a reservation. Balance payments are due no later than 30 days prior to your arrival.
Bookings within 30 days of arrival are payable in full.
Check in / check out
Your room is available for check in from 4pm – 8pm on the day of arrival. Check out time is by 10.30 am. Earlier check-in is strictly by arrangement with the management. We allow luggage to be left for a few hours prior to or after check out (subject to availability), but we are not liable in the event of something going missing or being damaged.
Infants & Children
Infants and children are very welcome at Pennygate Lodge. We have a travel cot available for babies & toddlers and there is no extra charge for wee ones sharing a room with their parents. An additional bed can be added to certain rooms for older children; a £30 / night charge is applied. Please advise at time of booking as we have limited availability of cots, high chairs and extra beds.
We do not permit dogs inside Pennygate Lodge (excluding assistance dogs) although they are welcome to join you for a stroll around the garden.
Cancellation of Reservations
In the event of a cancellation or curtailment of the original booking being made within 30 days of arrival, the total accommodation cost is chargeable unless we are able to re-let the room(s). Please note that the reimbursement of deposits made by card will be refunded minus a 5% administration charge.
Your booking is important to us but in the unlikely event that we would need to cancel your reservation for reasons beyond on control, we would attempt to arrange comparable alternative accommodation for you. However, if this was unacceptable or we were unable to do so we would refund all monies paid by you. We would be unable to accept further liability beyond this.
We strongly advise guests to take out travel insurance after booking your stay. This should cover you for such things as flight cancellations, bad weather or any unforeseen circumstances.
We do not accept liability for damage, loss or injury to any member of your party or any vehicles or possessions unless proven to be caused by a negligent act by ourselves or any contractors acting under our commission.
Damages or breakages
The guest is responsible and liable for any damages or breakages if caused to the room, the public areas or its contents. Any incidents should be reported as soon as they occur. We do not normally charge for minor breakages, but we reserve the right to make a charge to the guest’s credit/debit card, or invoice, for repair or making good if the damage or breakage is significant. In the event that we are unable to re-let any room(s), we will charge for any loss of income.
Smoking and vaping policy
For health and safety reasons and for the comfort of other guests at Pennygate Lodge, we operate a strictly non-smoking policy. Smoking or vaping is not allowed anywhere in the building including the entrance porch. Smoking is only permitted in the gardens in designated areas. A cleaning charge of £300 will be levied to cover the additional cost of deep cleaning rooms where smoking has been found to have occurred.
We ensure that all credit card data is held securely and complies with PPI Legislation. Data is destroyed within 3 months of your arrival date. We promise not to sell your information to third parties or use it for anything other than marketing purposes within Pennygate Lodge.
These conditions shall be governed in accordance with Scots Law and in agreeing to them you agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the Scottish Courts.
