Non Member Bookings

General

  • Non-members can only be booked for up to 5 mid week nights (Sunday – Thursday) or a weekend (Friday – Saturday) but not both, i.e. they must move out and reapply if they want to stay longer.
  • For a mid week (Sunday – Thursday) stay, you can book any time and the Hut Officer will act as host.  
  • Mid week bookings can generally be confirmed reasonably promptly depending on availability and club events being held

Weekends

  • Non-members may stay during the weekends but a senior member must book and accompany these people. 
  • The member must book via the website and use the Members Winter Booking form
  • On booking - Make a separate payment for non-member bookings. The booking for non-members will be held and confirmed if bunks are available three days before the required booking. This protects members wishing to book. If no bunks are available for non-members the payment will be refunded to the member making the application

Group Bookings

  •  A deposit is required for confirmation with the balance due when numbers are confirmed.
  • If a group booking is cancelled 1 month or more prior, a refund of 50% is made. If within a month, the deposit is lost.

    • Weekend bookings: Cancellation notice must be given to the Booking Officer by Tuesday 8pm prior.
    • Weekday bookings: Cancellation notice must be given to the Booking Officer by 8pm three days prior to the booking date.
  • Cancellation after cut-off will lose all funds except if bed/s is on-sold, then a $5 fee only to apply. Any variation to this rule is on application to the committee.
  • Refunds will be in the form of credits held to be used during the season. These may be returned at season end if not used.
  • The cancellation cut-off enables those on waiting list to be notified on Wednesday prior to weekend bookings and three days prior for weekday bookings. Earlier notice is always appreciated.
