Should you have any problems and/or complaints, your House Manager is the contact person (in conjunction with the cottage owner) to assist you with rectifying any area/s of your reasonable & valid complaint/s. Please ensure that you print your booking form in order to have the contact number/s of your House Manager before arrival in the village.

You will be responsible for cleaning after your pets, pick up their waste and ensure that the garden is left in the way that you have found it. We will exercise the right to hold you responsible for any damage caused by your pets.
DAMAGE AND/OR BREAKAGE POLICY
You will notice that most of our cottages do not charge damage deposits however, we trust in your integrity to take care and look after the property together with the contents as you will do with your own and that you will replace/rectify any breakages and/or damages at your own cost, before your departure. We also rely on your honesty to notify us of any breakages/damages that could not be replaced or rectified during your stay and that you will take full responsibility to replace/rectify/compensate for, any such damages or breakages afterwards.
Please note that most of our self-catering establishments now run on pre-paid electricity service. Due to the ever increasing cost of electricity, we unfortunately have to limit the amount of pre-paid power supply to a maximum of 200 units for a 2 to 4 night stay and 50 units per day thereafter. Anything over this maximum, will be for your own account. In establishments where a refundable damage deposit is required, extra usage can be deducted from your deposit and/or other establishments will provide the required units, whereby you can top up, should you need more. Electricity can be purchased online or at the Greyton Grocer.
Please take note that we do not take responsibility for any inconvenience caused by load shedding and no claims can be made against us for this reason. Our guests are only responsible to check online for the load shedding schedules during their stay.
CHECK-IN AND CHECK-OUT TIMES
For self-catering establishments, the general check in time is after 14h00 on the day of arrival and check out by 10h00 on day of departure. However, these times are negotiable depending on other bookings and generally, if you check out on a Sunday, you can spend the day and do not have to depart by 10h00 unless another booking is coming in on that Sunday which rarely happens. Please take note of the different check-in and check-out times for the various establishments and earlier arrivals and later departures can only be arranged closer to the time of your booking, with your host/hostess/house manager.
For bed & Breakfast establishments, the general check-in time is 14h00 and check-out by 10h00. Although these times are set, please enquire with your Hotel/Bed & Breakfast Manager if an earlier arrival or later departure will be possible.
cANCELLATION POLICY FOR SELF-CATERING
Greyton’s Cottages are highly sought after and losing business because of cancellations called for a cancellation policy that will be fare to both parties. Cottage owners are in agreement that once a deposit had been received, we unfortunately cannot refund your deposit, but we will give you the option to take up your booking at any other time that will suit both you and the cottage owner, within a period of 6 months and/or at the sole discretion of the cottage owner. However, cottage owners reserve the right to change this policy in the case of last minute cancellations, over long weekends, festivals and other popular weekends whereby you will forfeit your deposit and/or full payment depending on the notice period. In the event of a cancellation whereby a refund is afforded on its own merits, a 15% Cancellation Fee will be charged on the full amount.
When you have made a booking for two nights and at a later stage change your booking to one night, depending on the notice period, you might be liable for full payment as per your original booking for two nights. The same applies when you have booked for more guests (where the rate is calculated per person) and less guests turn up – you might be liable for full payment for the original number of guests, depending on your notice period.
cANCELLATION POLICY FOR HOTELS AND BED & BREAKFAST ESTABLISHMENTS
Please take note that all Lodges, Hotels and Bed & Breakfast establishments have their own cancellation policies in place. Please enquire to find out how this may affect your cancellation, if required.
ONE NIGHT BOOKINGS
Please take note that one night bookings over weekends in self-catering accommodation will have an additional surcharge, should the owner agree to it. Very few cottages accept a one night booking over a weekend or other busy times and preference will be given to two night bookings. The rate of the surcharge will depend on the normal rate of the cottage and whether your one night booking is during the week or over a weekend.
SECURITY IN GREYTON:
There is a common misconception that small country villages are free of crime. Unfortunately this is not the case and Greyton is no exception. For this reason it is important that you are aware of the security measures in and around Greyton. It is important that you set your alarms when you go out. You should also ensure that you do not leave doors and windows open and unlocked, even while you are in the residence. Crime in the village is largely opportunistic and an open door or window is an invitation for someone to sneak in and scoop up whatever's available. Camera's, iPads, cellphones, laptops and wallets should be stored out of sight at all times. It is also important not to leave bicycles unchained and in plain view.
Greyton has no car guards and only a few beggars. Please do not support begging! The Greyton Red Cross society does wonderful work for the poor and anyone wishing to help can make a direct donation by visiting the Red Cross shop in the Main Rd. Please be assured that we are deeply concerned about the impact of crime in our village and are doing everything in our power to fight it. Although if offers little consolation, we do know that crime is a countrywide problem and our only hope of changing this is to accept that we all have a role to play in eradicating this scourge.
