Cancellation of an event by the client

For all meetings and events, there needs to be an agreed ‘Cancellation Policy’, as cancellations cost the hotel money.  Here’s how ours works:

Date of Cancellation

Cancellation charge payable by you

Between 24 and 12 weeks before the event is scheduled to take place

10% of the total booking value

Between 12 and 6 weeks before the event is scheduled to take place

20% of the total booking value

Between 6 and 4 weeks before the event is scheduled to take place

30% of the total booking value

Between 4 and 2 weeks before the event is scheduled to take place

70% of the total booking value

Less than 2 weeks before the event is scheduled to take place

90% of the total booking value

Cancellation of an event by The Rivenhall Hotel

In the unlikely event that the hotel has to cancel your booking, you’ll receive all your advance payments, although the Rivenhall Hotel will not have any other liability.
However the Rivenhall hotel may only cancel if:

  • Any part of the hotel is closed or unavailable due to events beyond our control.
  • If you, or we, become insolvent, or in the case of an individual, becomes subject to a bankruptcy petition.
  • The booking, the persons associated with the booking and / or the purpose of the meeting might damage the reputation of the hotel or the company.

Numbers

Of course these can change.  However, if the numbers go down significantly, the cancellation charges will be applied.  So, if you give us more than 2 weeks notice, for events of 1 – 99 people, you can reduce your numbers by anything up to 15% without charge or 5% without charge for 100 or more.
If you provide less than 2 weeks notice, the contracted numbers will be charged.  If numbers are reduced, Rivenhall Hotel reserves the right to re-allocate the room to one more relevant to the size of the event.

Payment

The Rivenhall Hotel requires a non-refundable deposit of 50% of the total value in advance or a card number as a guarantee. Invoice payment is only available when the conference value is over £500.00 and if you are recognised as a credit customer. Payments are to be made to the hotel within 15 days of the date of invoice. Room hire charge is non-vatable, this includes room hire charge in the Day Delegate Rate, 24 hours Residential Rate and room hire on its own. Please note: for each additional hour or part hour that your conference overruns you may be charged a fee of £50.00.

Credit Agreement

A ‘Credit Application Form’ is available on request if you are not recognised as a credit customer.  Separate conditions apply, which can be found on this form.  Credit is not automatic, confirmation must be sought after completion of the ‘Credit Application Form’ where credit is extended, and all payments are to be made to the hotel within 15 days of the date of invoice.

Equipment

We can provide most equipment.  However, should you wish to bring your own equipment into the hotel, you must ensure it has been tested and is safe to use. The Rivenhall Hotel accepts no liability for any equipment you bring to the hotel, and we would ask you to comply with the rules set out in the Health & Safety at Work Act. For any 3rd party contractors visiting the hotel such as (bands and entertainers) under your instruction, you must ensure current and adequate ‘Public Liability Insurance’ is in place.  Copies of electrical testing certificates and insurance polices must be made available on request.  Should you have any queries, our team will be happy to help.

Other

  • For certain events the hotel may charge a deposit of £500 against the cost of possible damage to the hotel or hotel property, which could occur during the course of the event.  Should damage occur to the hotel or hotel property during the event then this deposit, or an appropriate part thereof, will be retained by the hotel on account of the cost of such damage.
  • It’s agreed that you’re not acting on behalf of someone else.
  • If you ask us to get a supplier to provide you with anything, the bill must be settled by you and not the hotel.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure any supplier fully complies with all regulations, and in the case of bands/singers, discos and entertainment, the required ‘Public Liability Insurance’ is in place.
  • If catering is requested food choices must be confirmed no later than 7 days in advance of the booking, otherwise the hotel reserves the right to allow the chef to select choices on your behalf.

Insurance
After all this, you may well consider it worthwhile arranging insurance.  This can be done for a small premium and can cover the cost of cancellation and other liabilities.  Your hotel will have details of the policy, and will be happy to supply them on request.  Please bear in mind that your insurance contract will be made directly between the insurance company involved and yourselves.

Please note: All bookings will NOT be classed as confirmed until  The Rivenhall Hotel has confirmed receipt of a fully signed copy of the conference contract AND terms and conditions.
