Overflow / 'Our Choice'
When Amber House is full and you trust our choice, we can place you in accommodation close by in an Overflow Room. Rooms & buildings vary but are clean & comfortable; our friends and colleagues will make you very welcome in their place.
Maximum occupancy usually 3 people and obviously facilities vary. Sometime twin beds with a shared shower room/WC but could be a double bed with en suite facilities... If you've booked an Overflow Room, we may be able to accommodate you in Amber House itself in an "Our Choice Room" at the same great price!
You let us pick your room - & you're prepared to move rooms within Amber House during the course of a stay of more than one night.
You could get lucky & stay in the Blue or Gold Rooms...
Quoted prices are for cash settlement upon arrival & include all applicable taxes, levies & service charges together with transportation arrangements if you're not assigned a room in Amber House itself.

In our seven bedroom, 120-year old home, there is a choice of four guest bedrooms available for reservation, but we don't book more than 4 guests into our home at one time.

Anne (aged 16) and Adam (aged 15) live on the premises but we have no other pets.
Children pay the same as adults except that one or more infants still being breast-fed by their mother (who is a paying guest at Amber House) are neither charged nor listed in the booking.
Payment policyWe 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 policyFor 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 policyBy 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:-
