Rates & availability information

Short Breaks

Other accommodation bookings


Midweek & Weekend Short Breaks

Shire Hotels Short Break prices are based on two people sharing a twin or double room for a one night stay (certain prices are based on a minimum two night stay and this is specified, where appropriate). Those hotels with a minimum two night stay restriction may offer one night weekend stays (subject to availability) for which a £25 per person supplement is charged. Please call the hotel of your choice for more information.

Prices include service and VAT at the current rate, breakfast and, where stated, three course a la carte dinner. All prices were correct at time of public In the unlikely event that we need to change a price we will advise you when you make your booking.

Single rooms

Although we don’t have any single rooms, you can enjoy a double or twin room on your own, by paying a single supplement of just £25 per night on a weekend night. Unfortunately we can’t extend this rate to midweek nights, and therefore normal midweek sole occupancy rates apply.


Payment should be made in full when you check out using cash, cheque or any of the major credit cards.

Deposits & cancellation

Normally, Short Breaks can be confirmed by credit card number or in writing – no deposit is needed. However, at certain times of year (Christmas and New Year for instance) a deposit may be needed – we will advise you if this is the case when you make your booking.

If your plans need to change, please give as much notice as possible about your cancellation by phoning the hotel. If you cancel before 2:00 pm the day before your arrival there will be no charge. Cancellations after this time will incur a charge of the first night’s bed and breakfast rate.

Other accommodation bookings

Unless otherwise indicated prices are quoted per person per night and include English breakfast, free car parking, use of the Spa, complimentary morning newspaper and VAT at the current rate.


You will need to confirm your booking by credit card guarantee or in writing.


You may cancel up until 10am on the day of arrival without penalty. Cancellation after this time will incur a charge for the first nights accommodation.

Conference & meetings and weddings & events accommodation

Full terms and conditions are detailed on the reverse of our business order form, which will be provided by the hotel once confirmation of reservation is received. These will protect both parties and cover: Charges and payment. Amendments and cancellation by the client. Amendment or cancellation by the hotel.
