Terms and conditions

The following terms and conditions apply to all bookings made for accommodation at Andelomi Forest Lodge (“Andelomi”, “we”, “us” or “our”).  

By accessing or using the services offered on our website or by booking accommodation at Andelomi, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions and in the event that you are booking on behalf of others, you warrant that you are authorised to bind those persons to these terms and conditions:


Availability of accommodation at the rates shown online may be limited and/or restricted to certain periods.  


Unless otherwise agreed, a 50% deposit is required for all reservations.  Your accommodation will only be secured once we have received your deposit.    You will be required to pay the balance of the accommodation costs when you check-in.  


Guests may check-in between 14:00 and 20:00 on the date of arrival.  Rooms must be vacated by 10:00 on the date of departure.  Failure to check-out timeously will render you liable for an additional night’s payment unless late checking-out arrangements have been made with us. 

Check-in and check-out times may be varied by agreement with us in advance.


Children are most welcome at Andelomi.  Where a suitable room is available and provided arrangements have been made with us in advance, children under the age of 2 may stay free of charge when sharing a room with a paying adult.  


Subject to pre-approval being granted by us, we may be able to accommodate small pets at no additional charge.  We reserve the right to demand removal of any pets causing a nuisance to guests or staff or damaging or soiling the Andelomi accommodation. 


Free off-street parking is available for all of our guests.


All advertised prices are per person per night (unless otherwise stated).  All Andelomi accounts are payable on presentation of invoice.  Prices are subject to change without notice and your price is only guaranteed once you have confirmed acceptance of our quotation and we have received your deposit.

For the avoidance of doubt, prices do include a complimentary breakfast but do not include any incidental charges, which you may incur during your stay (including, for example, in respect of your use of Andelomi's restaurant facilities).  Such charges will be payable by you during the course of your stay at Andelomi.  In the event that you fail to pay any such incidental charges, you hereby irrevocably authorise us to debit your credit or debit card for the amount of any shortfall, whether or not you are present at Andelomi at such time as we debit your card.


All cancellations and any amendments to bookings must be made in writing.

Whilst every effort is made to fulfill requests which you may have in relation to your stay with us, including amendments to bookings, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to meet any particular requests which you may make and our failure in this regard will not constitute a breach of contract.

In the event that you cancel your booking more than 7 days in advance of your proposed stay at Andelomi, we will refund your deposit less any banking charges that we may have incurred in connection with the booking.  In the event that you cancel your booking less than 7 days in advance of your proposed stay at Andelomi or you fail to arrive on the date that you have booked, you authorise us to retain any deposit paid and debit the debit or credit card that you have provided at the time of your booking for the full amount of the booking notwisthstanding the fact that you may not be present at the time of the transaction.

In the unlikely event that we have to amend or cancel your reservation, we reserve the right to do so.  However, you have the right to:

  • Accept the changed arrangements as notified;  or  

  • Make alternative arrangements with us;  or  

  • Cancel your reservation and receive a full refund.  Andelomi shall however not be liable for any sums which you have paid to any other persons in connection with your reservation. 


Although every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information contained online, we cannot accept responsibility for any errors or omissions and we reserve the right to vary, amend, supplement or cancel any of the information or offers featured online at any time.

Andelomi makes use of a third party online booking system and we will use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the system is reliable and that your payment details are kept secure.  We will also use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the booking system has full system functionality at all times.  You agree that Andelomi will not be liable to you or any other person in respect of loss or damage arising from the use of our website or any online booking systems.


We will endeavour to provide you with a free wireless internet connection for the duration of your stay.  The wireless internet connection may not be accessible on all parts of our large property and the connection is unsecured. 

You may use the internet at your own risk and hereby indemnify and hold Andelomi harmless against any loss or harm of whatsoever nature and howsoever arising, whether direct or indirect, from the dissemination of any data through the use of Andelomi’s internet facilities.


We reserve the right to determine acceptable levels of noise or behaviour of guests, particularly at night and between the following hours:  22:00 – 08:00.

We also reserve the right to require guests to leave Andelomi if they (or any allowed pets) are:

  • Causing a nuisance and/or disturbing other guests or staff; or

  • Acting in a manner which, in the sole opinion of Andelomi management, would be regarded by a reasonable person as unacceptable.

In the event that you are required to leave in pursuance of this clause 11, you will be required to settle your bill immediately and will not be entitled to repayment of any payments already made.
