Cancellation & Refunds


At Chelsea Square B&B, we understand that plans may change, and we want to provide you with the necessary information about our Cancellation and Refund Policy. Please review the following terms and conditions:

Cancellation Period:
Guests are eligible for a full refund if they cancel their reservation within 48 hours of the scheduled arrival date. This cancellation period aligns with the cancellation policy of major online booking platforms such as Airbnb in South Africa.

Refund Percentage:
If a cancellation is made after the specified cancellation period, a refund of 50% of the total booking amount will be granted.
Modification and Reservation Changes:

Guests may request modifications to their reservation, subject to availability and agreement with Chelsea Square B&B. Any changes made to the reservation may impact the total cost.

No-Show Policy:
In the event of a no-show (where the guest fails to arrive without prior notice), the full booking amount will be charged, and no refund will be provided.

Early Departure:
If a guest decides to depart earlier than the original reservation period, no refund will be granted for the unused nights.
Cancellation Procedure:

Guests must provide cancellation requests in writing via email or through the designated communication method specified by Chelsea Square B&B. The cancellation will only be considered valid once it is acknowledged and confirmed by Chelsea Square B&B.

Force Majeure:
In exceptional cases of force majeure, such as natural disasters, pandemics, or other unforeseen circumstances, Chelsea Square B&B reserves the right to modify or waive the cancellation policy. Such decisions will be made on a case-by-case basis, prioritizing the safety and well-being of our guests and staff.

Please note that this policy applies to direct bookings made through Chelsea Square B&B. If the reservation was made through a third-party booking platform, the cancellation and refund policies of that platform may supersede our policy.
