  • Client: means the person for whom Theobalds Estate has agreed to provide the Services in accordance with these Terms.

Formation of Contract

None of the information on the Website, in any of Theobalds Estate’s brochures, or given by Theobalds Estate staff over the telephone constitutes an offer from Theobalds Estate. This information constitutes an invitation for Client(s) to make an offer to Theobalds Estate and Theobalds Estate may accept or decline any such offer for any reason.

A Contract shall only come into effect and shall only become binding on Theobalds Estate when a Client’s offer is accepted in writing by Theobalds Estate – this will be the point at which Theobalds Estate issues a Booking Confirmation.


Client Information

The Client shall, at its own expense, supply Theobalds Estate with all necessary data or other information relevant to the supply of Services, as reasonably requested by Theobalds Estate, within sufficient time to enable Theobalds Estate to provide the Services in accordance with the Contract. The Client shall ensure the accuracy of all such information.


Theobalds Estate Information

The images of rooms on the Website and in Theobalds Estate brochures are displayed for illustrative purposes only. Although Theobalds Estate makes every effort to display rooms and facilities accurately, there may be minor discrepancies between these images and the Services supplied.


Payment and Rates

The booking rate payable by the Client shall be clearly set out (or explained to the Client, as applicable) as “Pay Now” or “Pay Later” at the point a booking selection is made. The booking rate will be confirmed in the Booking Confirmation.

The Client will generally have a choice of rates at the point a booking selection is made. However, the specific rates and pricing available in any particular case will depend on availability and demand at any given time.

Pay Now – this is the advance purchase standard rate. For bookings made on PayNow rates, full payment will be taken at the time of booking. This payment is not refundable in the event of any cancellation or no-show. The Client has no right to make changes to bookings made on PayNow rates.

Pay Later – this is the deferred purchase standard rate. Card details are taken at the point of booking but bookings made on PayLater rates can be cancelled by the Client at no cost up until 2pm on the date two days prior to the Client’s scheduled arrival date.
All rates featured on the Website or quoted by telephone are subject to availability and Theobalds Estate reserves the right to refuse any booking for any reason. Prior to receipt of a Booking Confirmation, all prices are subject to change without notice and Theobalds Estate does not guarantee that any particular type of rate will be available in respect of any particular booking.

If Theobalds Estate accepts and processes a Client offer where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by a Client as mispricing, Theobalds Estate may end the Contract and refund any sums paid.

All charges, whether the PayNow Rate or the PayLater Rate, are inclusive of Value Added Tax at the current prevailing rate. Indicative alternative currency rates used to estimate cost and balance of cost are based on current exchange rates and are subject to fluctuation.

Any additional charges due to Theobalds Estate from the Client for the Services shall be paid by the Client on presentation of an invoice prior to the Client Theobalds Estate. The Client is deemed to have authorised the settling of all outstanding charges which can be processed by Theobalds Estate using any credit or debit card details held on file. Payment via cheque is not accepted.



Pay Now: any Contract made on PayNow is not refundable in the event of Client cancellation or if the Client and/or their guest(s) fail to take up the Services on the day specified in the Contract, except for the circumstances set out in the Termination section below. The Client has no right to make changes to Contracts made on PayNow rates. No Client-requested changes will be made unless agreed by Theobalds Estate in writing.

Pay Later: the Client may cancel any Contract made on PayLater rates at no cost up until 2pm on the date two days prior to the Client’s scheduled arrival date. If the Client fails to cancel in time or take up the Services on the day specified in the Contract, the Client will be charged the total cost for the first night of the booking, which shall be calculated as follows:

Number of rooms booked x price of each room on the first night of the booking

The Client may still have termination rights in the circumstances set out in the Termination section below.


Variation in Services

Theobalds Estate may at any time make changes to the Services, without notice to the Client, which are necessary to comply with any applicable safety or other legal or regulatory requirements, for example, to address a security threat, extraordinary environmental conditions, unforeseen damage to premises or a national state of emergency, or which do not materially affect the nature or quality of the Services.

Theobalds Estate reserves its right to make changes to the Services in other circumstances, upon notice to Client, in exceptional situations which may include any of the following: unforeseen system failures, utility outages, health hazards and emergency renovations to premises. In the unlikely event that this happens, Client has the right to:

  • Accept the changed arrangements as notified;
  • Make alternative arrangements with Theobalds Estate; or
  • Cancel the booking in accordance with paragraph (a) of the Termination section below.
    If a Client wishes to amend any booking details, changes should be advised to Theobalds Estate at least 24 hours before the Client’s scheduled arrival date. Theobalds Estate shall confirm with the Client in writing if such changes can be accommodated. Any variation of numbers, accommodation and food and beverage requirements specified for the Services or other changes or additions requested by the Client must be agreed by the Client and Theobalds Estate in writing. Whilst every effort is made to fulfil any particular requests, these requests do not form part of the Contract and Theobalds Estate does not guarantee that it will be able to meet any particular requests.

In the event that the Client’s details are incorrect on the Booking Confirmation, please advise the Theobalds Estate reservations team on email at: reception@theobaldsestate.com


Liability of Theobalds Estate

If Theobalds Estate fails to comply with these Terms, Theobalds Estate is responsible to the Client for loss or damage suffered that is a foreseeable result of Theobalds Estate failing breaching the Contract or failing to use reasonable care and skill, but Theobalds Estate is not responsible for any loss or damage which is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if it is obvious or, at the time the Contract was made, Theobalds Estate and the Client knew it may happen.

Theobalds Estate does not exclude or limit its liability where it would be unlawful to do: this includes liability for death of personal injury caused by the negligence of Theobalds Estate or its employees; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or for breach of a Client’s legal rights in relation to the Services.

Services are supplied for consumer and private use. If Services are used for any commercial or business use, Theobalds Estate has no liability for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption or loss of business opportunity.



Theobalds Estate may (without limiting any other remedy) at any time terminate the Contract by giving written notice to the Client if the Client commits any breach of these Terms, or if the Client becomes insolvent, goes into liquidation, becomes bankrupt, makes a voluntary arrangement with its creditors or has a receiver or administrator appointed.
Client may terminate the Contract for the following reasons:

a) Theobalds Estate has informed Client about a material change to the Services which the Client does not agree to;

b) Theobalds Estate has informed Client about a material error in the price or description of the Services and Client does not wish to proceed; or

c) Client has a legal right to end the Contract because of something Theobalds Estate has done wrong.

If the Client wishes to terminate the Contract for any such reasons it must inform Theobalds Estate, in which case, the Contract will end immediately and Client is entitled to a full refund of charges paid in respect of the Services.
