How much cash can we draw in one day?

It depends on your bank. Most people can withdraw Rs.20,000 per day in two transactions of Rs.10,000.

Can we pay by credit card or visa?

Once you are with us, you can pay via credit cards. A small charge of around 2% may be applied to cover costs. Please check with our reception. I also ask that you try and pay as much in advance before leaving as there can be issues with the card machines due to either internet or the banks.

We do not currently take card payments before the guest arrives to help reduce the risk of fraudulent payments.

We DO NOT accept bank to bank transfers from abroad, as often the payments are delayed or even lost in the transfer and the banks blame each other. It is then a long process to be able to identify the payment, which often gets returned to the customer.

Can we pay the balance by Transferwise?

Once you are with us, you can pay via Transferwise if you give us plenty of notice so that there are 2 or 3 days for the payment to reach us before you leave.

Can we pay when we are there?

We always ask for a deposit so that we know that our guests fully intend to come. We are only open for part of the year and our business would not be profitable if we operated on trust without deposits. I am sorry that we cannot be more accommodating.

Can we have a discount for cash?

We do not give discounts so that we can offer all our guests the lowest rate possible rather than charging some people more and others less.

Can we have a long stay discount?

This season we are not offering a long stay discount, because we have not raised most of our rates so everybody feels the benefit.

Can we have a 10% discount, you gave us 10% discount last time?

We normally raise our rates by 10% each season, but this season we did not. But to achieve this we no longer offer a 10% discount for longer stays.
