We will do our utmost to accommodate you in the apartment that you have booked. There may be occassions due to circumstances beyond our control that we may have to at the last minute accommodate you in another apartment. This alternative apartment will generally not be of a lesser quality than that which was originally booked. If we however do have to accomodate you in an apartment with a lower nightly rental charge we will refund you the difference if the full amount or deposit has been paid in advance.
When you check-in to one of our apartments we will require you to please inspect the apartment on your arrival. Should it be to your satisfaction then we will require you to sign a declartion stating that you are satisfied.
