Terms and Conditions
All bookings accepted by Gordon’s Beach Lodge are subject to these Terms and Conditions that are deemed to have been accepted in full by the Guest. Payment of a Booking Fee or Rental Charge also indicates acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.
Renting serviced units from Gordon’s Beach Lodge is not intended to confer possession on the Guest or to create the relationship of landlord and tenant between us and the Guest. The Guest will not be entitled to any form of tenancy. The Guest confirms that they will not be occupying the serviced unit as their only or principal home.
Reservations & Payment
Your booking is only confirmed when we post or email written confirmation of booking following receipt of payment of the Booking Fee. When a booking is made, 50% of the total Rental Charge (Booking Fee) is required within 48 hour or making the reservation in order to confirm the reservation. The balance (if any), of the Rental Charge is to be paid 30 days prior to the arrival date. If we do not receive full payment by this time, the reservation may be cancelled and the Booking Fee forfeited. The Guest may be liable for the balance of the Rental Charge and for any other costs involved in the attempt to re-let the serviced unit. When a booking is made less than 30 days prior to the arrival date, the full Rental Charge is required to confirm the reservation. Guests wishing to extend their stay are required to give at least 7 days’ notice, subject to the room or an alternative being available. Payment must be made in South African Rand (ZAR) and must be clear of all bank charges, exchange rate variations and any other deductions. We accept the following methods of payment: Bank to bank transfer to our account, Visa, MasterCard, Diners & American Express. Under no circumstances will accommodation be provided until we have received cleared funds to cover the Rental Charge. Failure to pay in accordance with the agreed terms of payment may result in suspension of accommodation. We reserve the right to charge interest on overdue accounts at 4% per month or part thereof and to seek payment in full for accommodation during the suspension period. All rates are per room and inclusive of Value Added Tax (VAT) levied at the current rate.
The Rental Charge includes breakfast, as well as daily service of rooms and change of linen and towels at the discretion of management. Our minimum length of stay is 1 night, with no maximum.

Gordon’s Beach Lodge is not responsible for lost articles unless proven that we are responsible for the loss. Gordon’s Beach Lodge is not responsible for garments labelled "hand wash only" or "dry clean only" and is not responsible for checking for these labels in Guest’s garments. Please check garments before handing the garment over to the laundry service. Gordon’s Beach Lodge is not responsible for loss of or damage to any personal or non-cleanable items left in the clothing or laundry bags such as money, jewellery, or anything else.

The Guest must not assign, sublet or part with or share possession of the serviced unit or any part of it. Gordon’s Beach Lodge reserves the right to refuse admittance to the Guest if they are in breach of this condition.
Cancellations must be notified to us in writing. When notification of cancellation is received more than 30 days prior to the arrival date, all payments will be refunded after deducting the Booking Fee which is forfeited. When notification of cancellation is received less than 30 days prior to the arrival date, the Booking Fee of 5 % of the total value of the stay is forfeited, and the refund of other payments is subject to the accommodation being re-let. The refund is less the rent for any part of the contracted occupancy during which the accommodation remains vacant. A change of arrival date or departure date by the Guest may be treated as cancellation and re- booking. Gordon’s Beach Lodge recommends that the Guest insures against cancellation.
