Anne (aged 16) and Adam (aged 15) live on the premises but we have no other pets.

|Payment policy||We prefer you to pay either before or on arrival but, at the very latest, at breakfast on the morning of departure.|
All quoted prices are for CASH payment on arrival and include all applicable taxes, levies and service charges.
Tipping is not common practice in New Zealand, "Thank you" is all that is expected - even for exceptional service.
Many folks sensibly reserve their stay by giving us VISA or MasterCard details when booking and then avoid the card surcharge of 10% by paying in cash when they arrive at Amber House (since cards are usually only authorised for payment when booking and NOT actually debited until your day of departure from Amber House if cash payment has not been made).
|Cancellation policy||For each CANCELLATION or change of date required there will always be an administration charge of NZ$9-20 levied by Amber House. |
Except for Early Bird bookings, there will be no additional charges if 31 days or more notice is given to Amber House Limited or we can replace the booking.
If we can not replace the booking and except for Early Bird bookings, these cancellation charges will apply in addition to the administration charge:-
10% of the original agreed payment will also still be required if only 14 to 30 days notice is given;
30% payment if 6 to 13 days notice is given;
50% payment if 3 to 5 days notice is given;
70% payment if 1 to 2 days notice is given;
85% payment if less than 24 hours notice is given.
110% payment is contractually required if you simply don't show up within 2 hours of your advised arrival time without any prior notice to us at all
[and without reasonable excuse - since we will be worried you've had an accident and may be phoning the police and hospitals and postponing our usual bed-time!]
We strongly recommend guests take out travel insurance to protect themselves against any unexpected changes to their travel plans and we trust you will appreciate that our cancellation policies, as specified above, are more liberal than most New Zealand B&B's.
|Legal policy||By submitting your reservation request you agree to the payment, cancellation and general policies of Amber House, including, but not limited to those policies currently outlined at |
and to all the terms and conditions that follow in this on-line booking procedure:-
