There is no cancellation policy as this package is date specific. [Please read the notes in the main description below]. If you purchase we suggest you take out suitable holiday and travel insurance to protect the loss of your payment through non-attendance and then, should you feel you may not be able to make the journey for whatever reason, you will have some insurance cover.
No refunds will be given.
There is no cash alternative. This is not a voucher. There is no travel or other additional items included in the price of the package quoted, unless specifically stated as being included.
Your length of stay can be extended by contacting 2 Quail directly, though additional payment will be required by credit card.
Those choosing to stay at 2 Quail this New Year, have our personal service.
The Hogmanay celebration is complimented by a community events program within the town. So there should always be something on over the New Year period, which means you can choose to do as much or as little as you desire.
So … go for a bracing stroll along the beach, or be less energetic and take a drive out to view castles or even say ‘helloooo’ to Nessie [that’s quite a drive though], sample a wee dram of the amber nectar in one of the local distilleries ... or simply relax and unwind in our lounge in front of the fire with a good book and a wee dram from our selection.
Whatever your reason for a getaway ... 2 Quail and its central location in Dornoch is ideal.
If you’re able to get this at the starting price, can you afford to miss it?!
Any questions just ask.
