We hope that using the hot tub is a pleasurable and relaxing experience; however, for your safety and enjoyment there are strict guidelines that must be adhered to when using the hot tub. Before we can allow you access to the hot tub, we require you to read and understand the following safety guidelines. Once you have read these guidelines, please submit your acceptance via the link.

PLEASE NOTE THAT A MEMBER OF STAFF WILL VISIT THE HOT TUB DURING YOUR STAY, NORMALLY BETWEEN 9.30AM – 11AM. THIS IS SIMPLY TO CHECK THE CHEMICAL LEVELS OF THE WATER AND ADJUST IF NECESSARY. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THIS PLEASE ASK AT RECEPTION.
Please treat the hot tub as if it is your own as maintenance is very expensive. Any damage to the lid, vinyl cover, lifting system, filtration etc. will be charged for. Furthermore, any maintenance required as a result of the introduction of pollutants (including soap, shampoo, alcohol etc.) will also incur an extra charge.
