Terms and Conditions for Hire Of The Room Upstairs


A very warm welcome to The Room Upstairs. 

I am really happy to share my beautiful space with you on the understanding that you, the Hirer by paying the deposit invoice, accept these terms & conditions. 

1.      Ad-hoc Bookings

  • Bookings will be considered provisional until the booking fee is paid – usually on booking with our online form. 

  • Any changes to a booking must be agreed and confirmed by both parties in writing.

2. Regular/time-share style Bookings

  • Should you wish to book TRU on a regular basis in the style of a “time-share” (a regular weekly or monthly session), then you will be invoiced for a defined number of months as a deposit. Eg. for bookings reserved for you for 3 months, you will need to pay two months in advance, for 6 months you will need to pay three months in advance. Thereafter the payment is due by the 1st of the month in advance and no refund will fall due should you not use your session UNLESS I am able to rebook it for someone else, which I will endeavour to do. In return for your advance payment noone else will be able to book the room for that period and it is effectively your space for that time every week/month.
