|Terms of Trade(e.g. Deposit Policy, Cancellation Policy, Purchase Policy)
|The hotel’s standard policy is to secure the reservation with the equivalent of one night’s stay as a deposit. The deposit is fully refundable if the booking is cancelled 14 days or more prior to the arrival date. If the booking is cancelled with less than 14 days notice the deposit becomes a credit to Villa del Lago.
If your booking is cancelled because of government restrictions due to Covid that prevents travel or the border is closed, we will offer a more flexible policy and refund your deposit in full.
The one night deposit is non-refundable if cancelled for bookings over the following periods:
Christmas (16-27 December)
Gibbston Valley Concert Dates
NZ Winter School Holidays
Due to chronic staffing shortages, we are no longer able to offer daily servicing of the apartment. An end of stay cleaning is charged as an extra fee. This is added to all bookings including Online Travel Agent bookings. If you would like daily servicing or mid-stay cleans, this can be arranged but will be charged as an extra fee.
The hotel requires fully paid reservations in advance, non refundable at any time, for the following peak periods:
Christmas & New Year (22 December - 3 January)
China's Lunar New Year
China's Golden Week

In the unlikely event of a no-show, our cancellation policy requires the full amount of the confirmed booking to be credited to Villa del Lago.
